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.”

Mismatch in demand and supply can be easily fixed with some planning in the future.

The recent news about Anglo-Chinese School (Barker) boys feeling pressured by their principal Peter Tan to sell tickets for their school’s carnival have caused bystanders who read about the issue to be confused.

This after it was reported that the ACS boys who were left holding unsold tickets faced the prospect of buying the tickets themselves as demand for the event was low.

Singaporeans from all walks of life said the under-subscription and high number of unsold tickets could have been solved easily with some planning.

Kee Tiao Bu, a local, said there would have been an over-demand if the carnival was held at Zouk: “Every Friday and Saturday, you can easily find many ex-AC boys at Zouk and many other night clubs, where they willingly pay $50 to $60 for coverage and some drinks to be there.”

“If ACS planned the event such that it included convent girls, the news would have been how tickets to the carnival are being snapped up so fast they end up on the black market.”

“In that event, if each boy was given 20 tickets to sell, with each costing $10, on the black market they would have been trading for $100 each.”

 

This is how you make things hot and with demand:
