Now that’s tough.

A full-time national serviceman seen standing in one of the train carriages has confirmed that he could not sit down as the train was fully packed, contrary to eye witness accounts and photographic proof that the train was empty at that time.

The NSF, who gave his name as Kwa Teo Kwee, said: “When I’m outfield, it is also always quite crowded, a lot of children crying and even elderly men and women asking for directions to go home.”

“They will also ask me if I have seen their belongings and the last place they went to was YMCA at Stamford Road or that they were last at Changi beach but now they are here.”

“Some of them will ask me for help and ask where is their family or how do they find the gate and the bridge to go over but I try not to talk to them. At least not that often. And they do get angry.”

“And that’s when accidents happen.”

“It’s not that I don’t want to sit down. But there is just no where to sit. It is impolite to take other’s seats. Especially without asking, or maintaining eye contact first.”
