YOUTUBER CHOPES TABLE WITH LAPTOP & CASH, DROPS MONEY TO TEST IF S’POREANS ARE HONEST

In a bold and unconventional move, popular Singaporean YouTuber Ghib Ojisan recently conducted a social experiment to test the honesty of Singaporeans.

Known for his unique content, Ghib Ojisan decided to challenge societal norms by attempting various scenarios that would typically tempt dishonest behavior. The results, however, were nothing short of surprising.

Choping Tables with Wallets and Cash

Ghib Ojisan commenced the experiment at a bustling hawker center, a common local dining spot. To initiate the challenge, he “choped” tables using his wallet, leaving it visibly on the table.

However, despite there being numerous passers-by who noticed the unattended wallet on the empty table, nobody took it after 15 minutes as Ghib left to buy a drink, with even one girl sitting beside it and leaving it alone.

To escalate the stakes, he repeated the process but this time, he choped a table with literal cash, leaving behind cash of $7. He then left to buy some food and when he returned, the money was still there, despite a few other diners nearby noticing it.

Thinking that it was because the amount of money he left was too little, Ghib then upped the ante and left behind a $50 to test if people would be tempted to steal it.

An uncle later notices the $50 note and moved to sit beside it. Ghib later returns to the table and the uncle told him not to put his money so openly on the table, saying “wah very dangerous, you put your money like that,” as he added that he sat next to the money to help him watch over it.

Choping Tables with Unconventional Items

Unsatisfied with the results, Ghib Ojisan took the experiment to another level. He “choped” a table at a local eatery using his laptop, expecting that the valuable electronic device would be an irresistible target.

Yet, to his amazement, the laptop remained untouched, challenging the stereotype of opportunistic theft.

Dropping his wallet

Taking to a shopping mall in Chinatown, Ghib then commenced the latter part of his experiment by dropping his wallet in a public area, hoping someone would pick it up and claim it for themselves.

He got what he wished for but as it turned out, it was picked up by a man who then rushed over to him and told him that he had dropped his wallet.

Taking to the streets, he then conducted the same experiment near where a bunch of uncles were sitting down and chilling, this time dropping cash in front of them.

However, nobody took his his money, as the uncles started shouting loudly at him to get his attention, saying “oi! you dropped your money!”

Baiting Pickpockets at Bugis Street

In a bid to entice pickpockets, Ghib Ojisan took the experiment to Bugis Street, a popular shopping destination. He strategically hung his wallet off his back pocket, a classic move that often invites theft.

However, the outcome defied conventional expectations – no one attempted to snatch the wallet, showcasing a level of integrity that Ghib Ojisan hadn’t anticipated.

Singaporeans’ Honesty Defies Stereotypes

The results of Ghib Ojisan’s social experiment highlight the honesty and integrity of Singaporeans in various scenarios that traditionally pose a high risk of theft.

The outcome challenges preconceived notions about the vulnerability of personal belongings in public spaces, portraying a community that values trust and upholds moral standards.
