I don’t understand why singaporean guys would always label their female friends a princess when they hear that their dad pick them up from sch or work.
For context, my dad has been a taxi/ grab driver throughout my life.
Due to this, he has to work long hours everyday to put food on the table for me and my 2 other siblings. Hence, growing up, I never got to spend much time with my dad. Him picking me up from sch/work is the best he could do for me within his means to show love and concern.
And it’s so irritating and underwhelming for guys to label this as a princess syndrome when they do not understand the background and yet have the guts to say that I stay in hall just so I won’t inconvenience my parents yet they constantly ask their parents for every little expense.
I would too if I had the money bro but having 200 as an allowance could only bring me so far, on top of it, phone bill and transport would take up a bunch.
Here are what netizens think:
- If someone calls me a princess just because of this, I see it as a compliment cos that would mean my parents are King and Queen. Rightfully so. “My daddy sends me there and picks me up. Yours have or not? Jealous ah?”
- Think it depends to what extent. If the person makes their parent wait for them to pick them up showing no ability to go around on their own, then yeah, they’re spoiled, sheltered brats. Parents are not chauffeurs or maids. But if the parent insists on doing so, or its a convenience (otw home etc) I don’t see how it should reflect poorly on the individual?
- The sort of guys you know seem suspect. A guy who hears that the gal is picked up daily by her dad reads the message loud and clear “don’t mess with this girl”.
- He’s probably trying to get you to ditch your dad so that he can make a move.
