Not like I had been away for very long, but it was long enough to make me realize the ugly side of Singapore as soon as I reached home.
I was only away for 2 weeks, but I have been so accustomed to seeing friendly, considerate and responsible people that I am not used to being back.
1. I experienced inconsiderate, selfish and aggressive drivers, including a red Mercedes E200 who forced his way in front of me, despite the ample space behind my car.
2. I witnessed 2 male drivers fighting over a carpark lot in Suntec City. They were quarreling and I didn’t stay to watch.
3. I was walking through some fair and I had brochures aggressively shoved in my way. Even after I declined twice, the flyer distributors were still very persistent and forced me to take.
4. I saw a male customer yelling at the petite Carrefour cashier. I don’t know what she did but he kept mentioning something about his receipt.
