    Too many occasions where my colleagues and I finished our meal and left before any of the tissue packets owners, who chope the seats next to us earlier, returned with their food.

    Yeah, notice that too, if they chope the seat, other ppl can use it, and b4 they finish the Q, perhaps ppl already finish their food.
    Some you need 15 mins to Q

    Just purely selfish, personally I never use tissue to chope a seat

    Hey, I got an idea. Instead of using tissue to chop place, we can use an inflatable human dummy as replacement.

    Just came back from lunch at Holland Village... Saw two ladies at the same table "reserving" their seats with tissues, one lady reserving her table with a water bottle and numerous umbrellas on empty tables, also acting as reserve signs...

    Next time, i shall just take the water bottle and umbrella, pass it to the cleaner auntie and tell her i found it... dont know whose is it...

    Yup, which was the points I raised in the earlier thread. I rebutted any charge of stealing on this basis.

    people who don't have to eat in that area wouldn't understand. i certainly didn't. i actually threw away tissue packets when i dine with my wife at shenton last time. i thought it was someone's litter. then when the ladies came back, they stared at me. and i didnt know why at all until she told me. and i still think it is pretty silly to put tissue.
    all the reasons to be considerate. if crowded, should be first come first serve, and not who's first to throw tissue on the table. they don't have to sit all together on the same table. if want to chat, then chat after eating. Only got 1 hour mah.. not much time to eat and chat.

    the tissue paper proved that they were there first..
    u juz need to ensure that there's no tissue left to back their claim.

    (
    on the other hand, throwing away the tissue packets could be considered as clearing up litter. hence it would be a public service

    Singaporean are changing their life style totally.

    From 1 person guarding the table, they replace it with tissue pack.

    From giving way to other, they now rush/fight for first to the train.

    From helping other, they bochap other.

    From etc... to etc.., they change from etc.. to etc... (too much to list)

    All because singapore population hitting 5mil, making us got to fight for our TRUE citizenship.
