Snarky comment by MRT Staff
Close to midnight, realised I lost my mask at the gantry and asked a staff working at the MRT counter near the gantry if there’s an extra one to spare – and if needed I am happy to pay for it.
MRT staff said they don’t, but went on to add this zero value sentence “btw ah it’s not our obligation to provide…” in this smart Alec tone *shrugs*.
To be honest he came off really rude and kind of silly but just how oblivious he was to the rudeness is tremendously amusing.
And… who said anything about the obligation to provide? Errr? Thanks Captain Obvious?
Well I was as nice as an angel. After all it’s really late and I am probably the 99999999th person asking for a mask and therefore got the brunt of it. It’s all good man. He’s forgiven.
Here are what netizens think:
- I think they are probably tired of people asking them for masks… I have known of people who shared that they don’t bother to bring along mask and would ask for one frm the control station whenever they are taking the train and I’m sure they are not the only one to do so. That said, I’m also not condoning the attitude of the customer service officer… good that u have forgiven . No point wasting energy being angry at the person who don’t even know you are angry at them.
- Some people who have little power in life like to add a little spice to feel better about themselves… just ignore the rude people and look out for the helpers.
- I left home this morning around 6 as I have class around 8 am. I totally forgot my mask. Inside Mrt I did not realise I am not wearing mask, a man on his 60s handed me a mask , only then I realised I don’t wear one. I kept thanking him and saying sorry as I totally forgot.
- It is always the nice ones who gets these rude attitudes. The curse of nice people. I feel you bro.
