Usually my time on the mrt is really unproblematic but for the past week I have been confronted by people twice.
First time is red line, old woman shout at me for pausing at the door bc she jam her toes into my heels. But then ppl were walking in oso so I stop cause I don’t wanna crash into them. She scolded me saying stop watching my phone She berated me all the while while I walk down the stairs (also need to mention that she berated me for my size as well, that hurt in particular cause I had just lost 1.7kg).
Next today I remove my mask when I exit the mrt station (in the same building, but passed the gantry and past a 7/11 alr, this is at paya lebar mrt btw if u are familiar with the layout). Then one guy shout at me to wear my mask. Like bruh I cannot even say anything back bc if I do,1)its disrespecting my elders and they wld become the victim, and 2) I wear uniform so they later complain to my school. Furthermore, I always worry that kaypoh ppl gonna complain, so I removed my mask after checking that at least 1 more person had removed theirs. Why he specifically target me instead of the 3 ppl infront of me sia
Its become increasingly annoying bc I am a non confrontational person so I dont talk back but then it also affects me for the whole day after, and today is bad considering that I’m writing my final a lvl ppr. Ik this is not an isolated incident bc students often talk about it on SGExams as well.
Like srsly, how do I deal with such ppl? Anyone got any experience? I oso cannot avoid mrt cause I not rich enough to buy car.
