    The ungracious attitude of Singaporeans. We should have a much more gracious society and definitely need it more in the public place.

    Same as my housing estate. Force me until i have to walk to the extreme left or right hand side until I have to hit the green rubbish bin, wait for the combing to pass by before I continue my way again haha

    Since the day's winding down, here are some irritants to help with your article/assignment

    Irritants during daily commute:

    1. the Dr Jekyll & Mr/Ms Hyde: 上车时象成龙, 上车后象林黛玉
    2. the sardine-packing experts: uncles and aunties who can always squeeze that little bit more space out of that loaded MRT/bus to accommodate themselves
    3. the knowledge hungry: who die die must read newspapers in a crowded train while draping the papers on anyone in their way of enlightenment
    4. the mystical slumber-land race: who fall under the slumber spell once their magical butt touches the magical seat and always successfully break that spell just before their destination
    5. the revised-newton's 3rd law hedgehog: for every action there is a multiplied reaction - the slightest contact will induce a wild defensive display of physical prowess to bump off any encroaching offender

    griping for fun, actually i'm pretty used to it already and can't ask for too much since i chose not to pay the premium for a cab or to own a car, but since you asked for suggestions...

    Irritants on CS forum (summarizing from observation what irritates pple)

    1. Trolls
    2. Rude folks
    3. People who don't know Mr Google
    4. Know-it-alls who can't take a different view

    Irritants for some other general areas:

    1. Customer service staff
    2. Telemarketers
    3. MILs
    4. the other half (after the honeymoon period)


    must clarify first in case my other half (or MIL) is browsing here, all in the spirit of fun! I think if you will find lots to expand on if you zoom into any one area. Hope the info helps in your assignment!

    yay Pang Gang liao...
    Slow...yeah, steady... not really

    so many irritants how to list all?

    - slow computers at school
    - people chop seat by putting tissue pack
    - people refuse to move into bus, hogging at the entrance and causing others unable to board the bus
    - people who talk loudly
    - period
    - I find that taking bus to school is a pain - the crowds,the frequency, the wait, the journey
    - teenagers who think the world revolve around and scream at everything that dun live up to their expectation

    Well... if they can't communicate to your better side and ask you to 'play' nice.... next time use Cattle Prod lor.

    Since Singaporean demand a more gracious S'pore, but can't seems to take personal responsibility to be more gracious.... then Cattle Prods, Fines, Nagging would have to continue..... and then there will be more 'Random Daily Irritant' and the same people would once again ask 'Why Can't We Be Gracious'..... and the circle turns round & round. Let He Who Is Without Sin.... Cast The First Stone.

    Yes... somehow a lot of these irritants revolve around MRTs and it's passengers.

    I can't tahan those people whom everyone in front of them is obviously alighting yet they have to push their way to the front before the train has stopped and door opened.

    I thought it's more of the double deck. Every time the top deck is empty while the bottom is packed like a train.
