If taking the MRT was a game, aunties would be the final bosses
What are some of the unbeatable techniques that they use to defeat you?
My most hated one is the death stare when you’re seated and there’s no seat for them. Bonus difficulty if you’re wearing your NS uniform.
There’s also the wall hugger who cuts the queue by squeezing through you and the mrt barrier to get ahead.
Another notable contender is the linebacker Aunty who shoves the alighting passengers to get to the seat that God created just for her.
Come share some of your grievances on public transport.
I swear to god, wearing NS uniforms makes aunties want to take your seat. I am in stay out, so I have to travel to camp everyday. Back then, if I do see some of the aunties on the train, I would give my seat.
However, it seems to me that the expectation is so high, that I must ACTIVELY search for aunties to give my seat to.
I was once asleep on the train and an elderly couple was standing infront of me. I did not know. Before I knew it the wife press down the tip of her umbrella onto my leg to signal her presence.
The gumption for those people to actually assault me to take my seat. I ignored her. From that moment on, my stance is that giving up the seat is a gesture of goodwill and I should not feel obligated to give up my place on a train, and hence it is not my duty to search for elderlies to give my seat to.
If they want, they can ask me to give up my seat and because of social consciousness, I would do so, but the elderlies better ask.
Seems like a fair trade off, you want the seat, humble yourself to ask for one. If not stand like everyone else.
