Dear ASS Editors,
Just wanna share a story I met on MRT today. I was taking Red Line from Admiralty station towards City Hall today, time was about 4pm. The cabin was full but not pack and I was standing near the train door. An aunty (about age 60+ I guess) aboard on Yishun station and stand near the other site of the door, since all seat was taken.
After Khatib station, a nice lady (about age 30) who was playing her phone noticed the aunty, she stood up with smile and offer the seat for the aunty and guess what? The aunty suddenly angry and said: “我不用你同情我，搞到好像施舍这样！我可以站的，不会死的!” (i am not good in translation, something like : I don’t need your sympathy, I won’t die standing here) In very loud and anger tone! I was like WTF?
The kind lady was so embarrassed, and why she deserved that? I feel a little guilty for not helping the lady on spot. The aunty also said “都要到了才给我坐” and she alight on Bishan station.
