SOLDIERS DIDN’T GIVE UP SEAT, PUT TO SHAME BY FOREIGN WORKER

At 6.30pm, on Thursday, I was on the DTL going towards Chinatown, on board was a group of blue clad soldiers, obviously from Mindef at Hillview. They were all sitting in a row.

At Beauty World Station, an old man of about 75yrs got up and was tottering about with a walking-stick umbrella looking for a seat.

Not one of the brave defenders of Singapore stood up to offer his seat. They prefer to yelp away like a bunch of aunties.

What happened next would put them to shame. A Bangladeshi worker, evidently tired after a day of hard work, got up and called out to the old man. “Uncle! Come and sit.”

This wasn’t the first time foreign workers gave up their seats a number of them had given up their seats to me too because I am 71yrs old myself.

Those soldiers are a disgrace to their uniforms and to the Nation. I hope we don’t have to depend on them to defend us.
