Are Singaporeans generally rude/entitled?
Was dining at genki, a couple ordered ice cream parfait. I guess the cup toppled when the train was making its turn (although tbh, all the contents remained inside and it was still edible, just have to pick up the cup).
Could already see the guy getting abit agitated (which I’m sure he’s entitled to, no problem, wanted to take a photo of the parfait)
I think the server noticed it and returned the train immediately. Subsequently a server came out and passed them the parfait.
To be honest, could have been the same parfait from before, couldn’t really tell, but in my POV, still totally edible and within the limits of proper food presentation.
Guy totally flips out and raises his voice at the waiter “OI, THIS IS HOW YOU SERVE FOOD ONE AH?” In a super condescending tone.
At this point my partner and I feel super sorry for the waiter, not really his fault also. Which made us think, are Singaporeans generally this easily ticked? Why did he have to be so rude to the waiter unnecessarily?
- Instead of NS, should make all Singaporeans work in F&b for 2 years.
Then u see the real Singapore.
- You can find rude people in all corners of the world. But, from my (limited) experience, I find that people do tend to be a bit more impatient (snappy/rude) in faster paced societies.
- Wait till you work in healthcare. Even more entitled patients and their entitled next of kins to deal with.
- Because the polite ones never make a ruckus.
- Everyone should work in F&B, retail or any service-related jobs for at least a month.
- I think Singaporeans, especially older aunties tend to be a more unforgiving lot. Something about how they treat service staff / construction workers / domestic helpers. Very short fuses and poor tone, as if they were talking to a child.
