A netiizen shared her frustrations with “young people these days” being too obsessed with their phones without minding their surroundings.
She shared two anecdotes of unsavoury incidents that she had seen and experienced while in the MRT and the stations.
Here is what she said
Young people these days are just too entitled and obsessed with their phones while being a complete jerk towards others.
First encounter with this dude who was standing in the middle of the escalator while glued to his phone.
When the escalator reached the top, he just stood at the top of the escalator while still glued to his phone, completely oblivious to anyone around him and blocking anyone from landing.
There was only 1 second before landing and I had no choice but to physically shove him out of the way. Worst still, he wasn’t apologetic in anyway and glared at me as though it was my problem.
On hindsight, wished I had pushed him so hard that his phone dropped. Would I be liable for damage to his phone if it really dropped ? It was his fault totally anyway.
Next encounter was another dude who was walking slowly into the train while texting on his phone as the doors were about to close, completely oblivious to the people behind him rushing in to board.
The girl behind him got kiapped by the door because of it. And he completely wasn’t even aware of what he had caused.
