U have friends or colleagues who will take advantage to save a few cents and maybe for convenience sake...

Would you place this notice in your car?

even though sometimes my friend offered me a ride back in his bmw after late night gaming during the weekends, i will still go take NR instead.
reason he lives at little india no point drive me go bb and back.
ever since he own a car way back in poly, i noticed the rate raising from 1.6 something up to the now 2.0 something.
he sometimes hardly have enough to pump petrol, opting to go JB pump instead but now...
i may be poor, but i still have enough backbone to bmw (bus,mrt,walk) myself back home.

I only tong bang people who I like and enjoy the company. After all, it is boring to drive back alone anyway, if the stop is along the way, why not?

TS, do u mean contributing for trips in situations of car-pooling or just sending friends and colleagues home after outings and suchlike?

If carpooling to work and back one, of course would pay, and one should add on a bit to help out the friend due to high fuel costs... but if you are sending friends or colleagues back coz "shun lu", its weird to ask ppl to help pay for fuel costs right?

I try to avoid it as much as possible.....Most of the time I rather pay for cab if i want more comfort....:)

Unless sometimes really bobian, people stop in front for u or when i know the person quite well, then i'll take the car....:)
