Singaporeans from all walks of lives are cheering the release of an limited edition EZ Link card that will commemorate the July 7, 2015 SMRT breakdown.

The card will cost $77 and, interestingly, the value of said card will start at negative $77. Ultimately, when the value hits zero, it will mean that the commuter has successfully apologised.

Equally unique is this feature: Whenever there’s a train breakdown, another -$77 will be credited to the card automatically.

This move is believed to give commuters an outlet to apologise for their inconsiderate actions on July 7, when Singaporeans from all walks of lives boarded the train at the same time, caused it to spoil and inconvenience Desmond Kuek, the SMRT CEO, who is very capable.

Regular commuter Zhen Tian Huai said: “I can’t think of a better way to apologise to SMRT for the breakdowns. It has been widely reported that we the citizens of Singapore were at fault for the July 7 breakdown and I’m glad SMRT is offering us an olive branch.”

For some, the news come as a relief.

Dong Bei Xian said: “At least we no need to commit hara-kiri.

“Considered lucky already.”

The card will be up on sale at all non-working MRT stations on Aug 9, 2015.

More Singaporeans from all walks of life who ride on public transport are praising the efficacy of spitting on one’s EZ-Link card as a way to resolve problems.

The idea of spitting on one’s own EZ-Link card when a public transport problem occurs was mooted by Gilbert Goh, a seasoned protest organiser.

One spitter, Pui Chao Nua, said: “After I spit on my EZ-Link card already, I put back into my wallet, my wallet become wet wet.”

“Once I was on this train that was moving very slowly. So I took out my EZ-Link card and spat repeatedly on it.”

“The train was still moving very slowly after that. And I was fined $1,000 for public spitting. Thank you, Gilbert Goh.”
