SMRT to make announcements only if trains working properly

Posted on 09 November 2017

The new normal.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know how things work in Singapore, are looking at one another and nodding in comprehension.

This after they noticed SMRT no longer makes announcements publicly when trains are delayed or not working properly.

One Singaporean, Yew Huai Leow, said: “This is so as trains getting delayed or not working properly is the new normal.”

“If there are no announcements, it means the train is confirmed already delayed.”

“If there are announcements, it is to inform commuters that things are going to be different and better because the MRT is working properly as intended, which is becoming rarer these days.”

However, other locals said not having announcements as the new normal is increasingly terrifying.

Another local, Hong Gan Leow, said: “If there are no announcements and it means things are getting worse, then there are no announcements about Singapore getting better.”

“We are going to die.”

    Who cares?! Anyway, it is SMRT’s problem.

    As what 黃淑敏 would say: “fuck off from my élite uncaring face”.

    Fortunately for her daddy 黃守金 (& 宏茂橋 & more specifically, Jalan KAYU [NO PUN INTENDED]) SBS Transit (!) seems to have FORGOTTEN his daughter’s laudatory remarks in relation to (NO PUN INTENDED) what PUBLIC transport is all about!

    It is sure interesting on the train of thoughts which drives one to comment — Derek Wee would be so PROUD.
