Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to game the system and take advantage of loopholes, are leaving their belongings unattended at Starbucks island-wide.
This after it was reported on Oct. 28, 2014, that a Starbucks employee at CityLink Mall outlet had cleared the belongings of some teenagers who left their things unattended for half an hour, and after which, even gave them a fresh half-cup of beverage.
This has resulted in thousands of Singaporeans jumping at the chance of this free service of letting others take care of their belongings.
Kee Sho Peng, a local, said: “I think this type of service is awesome. It is like a free concierge service. Leave all the things there and the Starbucks employees will help put them away and later you can just come back to claim.”
“This leaves me more hands to go shopping.”
Another Singaporean, See Baey Xian, said: “This is what happens when Singaporeans are presented with endless choices of shops in shopping malls.”
“There is Starbucks, Toast Box, Charles & Keith, McDonald’s, Giordano, Starbucks, BreadTalk, Charles & Keith, Starbucks, McDonald’s and Giordano.”
“With so many places to go, it is no wonder everybody in Singapore ends up in Starbucks and then there is no place to sit.”
