Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to take public transport because cars are for rich people, have extended their hands to students from Anglo-Chinese School (Barker) while offering their heartfelt apologies.

This after they saw a poster outside ACS celebrating the completion of the Downtown Line 2, which will allow the students to go to school by themselves.

The poster read: “We can get to school on our own! Yay!”

One Singaporean, Dui Bu Qi, who is very sorry, said: “We apologise that future bankers, parliamentarians, captains of industry and potential office holders have to navigate the complex world of Singapore’s public transportation network when they so young.”

“They did not have to man up to the realities of a non-chauffeured life at such a tender age.”

Other Singaporeans, who are also deeply sorry, said they regret not being able to personally help these students the last several years as they had to endure the daily commute riding in their parents’ cars to and fro from school, resulting in their household expenditure to increase substantially as they have to bid for COEs every few years.

One other local, Hao Hua Che, said: “If only we taught these ACS pupils the rudiments of Singapore’s public transport, their parents will not have to spend thousands of dollars each month driving.”

“And most certainly they would not have to endure countless of hours sitting in the solitude of private transport vehicles and not being able to imbibe in the communal bonding of taking public transportation with other regular Singaporeans.”

“But I swear the person who designed the banner was having a laugh writing the caption.”
