Consecutive train breakdowns leave commuters in disbelief

Posted on 16 December 2011

More dry humping. More buttocks rubbing buttocks action.

For the second day in a row, MRT commuters are forced to dry hump and rub buttocks against buttocks.

Yup, Dec. 15 is dry-humping-buttocks-rubbing-crowded alright.

This second incident is reminiscent of the events the day before on Dec. 14, where commuters were unwittingly made to create bodily friction because the Circle Line train system went tits up during morning peak hour commute.

The day before on Dec. 14, the Circle Line catastrophe saw an unprecedented number of dry humping and buttocks-on-buttocks action.

This time, the North-South line on Dec. 15 experienced technical difficulties that caused a shut down of all travel between Bishan and Marina Bay stations. The meltdown occurred some time around 7 p.m. during rush hour peak period.

Some commuters were reportedly held up in carriages that ran out of fresh air, lights and air-condition for as long as 45 minutes when trains came to a standstill underground. In an attempt to not meet the maker, a carriage glass door panel was reportedly smashed to allow life-giving sustenance to enter.

It is heartening to know that Singaporeans can take the initiative. Amen.

After passengers were evacuated through tunnel shafts that were meant for the smooth flowing of our First World transportation system, many proceeded with the walk of shame to find alternative means to get home.

This is SMRT's walk of shame. These are the commuters who have been let down. Many, and I mean many, missed an episode of something on TV because the train stopped working.

Remember, these are the same people who cannot afford cars because COE prices have let them down and where peak-hour taxi fares can cost more than air tickets from Bangkok to Singapore.

At 11 p.m. at City Hall MRT station, station staff were on hand to divert people out to alternative forms of transportation.

"Am I supposed to get the fuck out from there?"

Lastly, we leave you with feedback from a disheartened commuter:

“Look, I studied hard, did my ‘A’ Levels, scored distinctions to get to uni, hauled my ass through four years in uni and came out looking for a decent job. I’ve worked hard for the last few years but I cannot afford a car still. That’s ok. But is it so fucking hard to ask for the public transportation system to work properly? I’ve done my part being an upright citizen serving NS, contributing to CPF and paying taxes, so why can’t the public service return me the fucking favour? Is it fucking too much to ask for?”
