Reason 0023 : Singaporeans Do Not Give Way to Alighting Passengers

I once witnessed an incident while waiting for the MRT at City Hall station. The train had come to a stop, the doors opened, and the passengers inside were beginning to alight. Sure enough, the ugly Singaporeans outside graciously waited for a few seconds while the first few passengers alighted, and then started pushing their way into the train as the remaining passengers were trying to get out.

A well-groomed lady in her thirties who was trying to alight (Shenton Way executive type) was caught in the middle of the crowd rushing in and as her hands were carrying her handbag and shopping bags, she was powerless to resist and was swept back into the train. She got so frustrated that she shouted : "Hey! Stop pushing!" while pushing the people around her with her elbows. The ugly Singaporeans around her 'buah bodoh' of course. You have to give it to these people, they have got skin as thick as armour plating.

When will Singaporeans ever learn that this is not the way to behave?

I have to agree with this post of yours. Such Singaporeans are truly dumb asses. How the hell are they going to enter if they don't let those alighting passengers exit first? Their act will only slow them down!

Honestly, sometimes I feel like pushing such people or even screaming at them to fuck off when I'm alighting the MRT train.

u should see how Indonesians behave.When lining up,they tend to push and squeeze the person infront like doing an anal or something.At crowded places,they love squeezing and forcing.they dont care if someone dies,they just keep pushing.

By shouting doesn't work. Most people do not understand English.

I'm SIngaporean and I agree with the MRT thing, but don't judge a whole nation just because of a few idiots. If you hate Singapore, why read local newspapers then? You know you admire Singapore. You're just a sad soul who wants attention.
