    Talking Typical Singaporeans!

    Was at Mark & Spencer yesterday and saw a family (Mum, Dad and teenage daugther) browsing at a clothing section. Suddenly a pack of biscuits dropped from the dad's hand and there was a small commotion among the three, (like Shaggy - it's wasn't me thingy).
    Then you know what happened?
    Guess...... no prize for the correct answer.
    Clue: c title.

    Either the father picked it up and put it back or

    They just walked away as if nothing happened.

    Let's say this happen in Italy.

    What do you think will be the differences in the family reaction?

    I dun understand why there should be a commotion when they could just either:

    1) put the biscuit back on the shelves and feel guity about it (but I dun think so - this is the part where I have to stifle some sniggers) or;
    2) pay for the merchandise and blame themselves for being butterfingers (this is LL, store manager or assistant must have caught them) or;
    3) argue it out with any one who saw them drop the biscuit.. (unusual that this will happen, we s'porean wil just stare and stare and talk about it at home later, of coz unless it's the store manager)

    Rite on!
    the Pa was holding the pack of biscuits and somehow they they were in a tight spot, the pack dropped with a loud tug.Then they started to argue who actually "makes" the pack dropped! "It's yr fault", "No Dad, it's wasn't me", "Ya, darling, it's wasn't me too, & u r holding the pack, u drop yrself", "No, it's wasn't me" ..... blah, blah, blah blah....
    I was about 2 metre away, and I could hear everything but I couldnt laugh coz that would embarass them. So i thought everything was over when the Dad picked up the pack.
    Then he have a good scan 360deg and confirmed that no one noticed him, he walked about 10 metres to the biscuit shelf and quickly changed the pack!
    Man, if you are reading this, i say, SHAME ON YOU!
    Do you expect the next buyer to buy your mistake?
