A resident at a HDB block in Ang Mo Kio was so frustrated with an inconsiderate neighbour for dumping their sofa along the corridor, that he left them notes admonishing their actions in English and Mandarin.
The resident shared photos of the notes and the sofa obstructing access to the walkway and the lift on Facebook.
The English note had called out the neighbour’s inconsiderate actions, labelling them as poor, saying “I comprehend you are probably weighed down by a scarcity mindset and tunnel vision and that is why you are so poor.”
It went on to add how their actions are a potential fire hazard that reduced the accessibility to residents who are “physically challenged.”
“Your wanton attitude and inconsiderate mannerism put you at risk of making bad choices that feed your poverty cycle.”
In the mandarin note (unclear if it was written by the same resident), it stated that “in life, there are those with a higher and lower status in society. But in character, there are no nobilities or lowliness. So why are you choosing to be a lowlife?”
