I don’t take Grab car’s because I think its gross as many people used it.
Compared to others here, I guess I belong to the older golden generation. Anyone will think someone my age, a fair lady almost hitting a grand 60 years old, will be able to speak freely to my own family members. Without them judging me, chastising me. Right?
Not true. If my son hears this from me, he will rebuke me. If the in-laws hear this, well, they probably won’t talk to me anymore.
The in-laws occasionally invite me over for dinner. Nice, decent people. After dinner, the father always offers to send me home. I always have to decline, and said it’s fine, I have my driver fetch me back.
Sometimes, he will be quite persistent, like how I can give my driver a break. But I always insist, politely, that it’s fine, my driver is on the way.
I don’t mind the father’s car. Even though it’s a rather old, beaten Japanese sedan. What I do mind, however, is that it’s also a Grab car. The father uses it as a Grab driver 5 or 6 days a week, for the past 2 years I believe. Just imagine, the different people who sit in that car, total strangers, every day. Gross. Totally gross. The dirt, grime, dust, sweat, germs, stench, unmentionable filth of countless, hundreds (or thousands?) strangers in that car.
And he expects me, someone who has not taken public transport or even a taxi for goodness knows how many years, to sit in this type of car?
I simply cannot understand why people can allow total strangers to violate and stain their own car like this. For livelihood?
The money is pitiful I believe, probably not even enough for a decent vacation.
Here are what netizens think:
how would you know if it’s dirty? did you ask him? maybe he sanitises it after every Grab passenger?
Hmm. Near t0 60 and in laws invite her over n the father offer drive her.home?? How old is the father? Must be very old ? N still doing grab? Of course it is for the livehood. Sometime it is not about the money, it about how they want to spend their time .
