S’poreans fail to give up seat to elderly couple on MRT train

Posted on 12 February 2016

They say they feel entitled to sit down.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who enjoy taking public transport because cars are for rich people, have refused to get up from their seats on the MRT train.

This after they saw an elderly couple enter the train but refused to budge to let them sit down.

One Singaporean, Tah Dee Tieh, said he does not see anything wrong with not giving up his seat to this elderly couple: “They don’t look like they belong here in the first place.”

Other Singaporeans said they would think twice about giving up their seats to this elderly couple as they are not sure if they deserve it.

One other local, Wa Mai, said: “Actually, they should even give up their standing space to other commuters who need it more.”
