Singaporeans are famous for being efficient, kanchiong and kiasu. But there is a unique Singaporean culture of being late and yet give lame excuses which are highly justifiable and totally isn't our fault. It is always something or someone out there to get us and make us Sinkies late for our appointments.
Let’s look at some of the top excuses we have heard of and probably used before.
1) I WOKE UP LATE
You woke up late but you managed to update your Facebook status? And yes you forget to privatize your Whatsapp last seen.
2) I LOST MY WAY
This excuse sounds very good right especially when you are going to a location that is FRESH to you. But if you are going for a job interview and you do this, it only shows that you lack interest in the job. Whereas if you are meeting your friend at Plaza Singapura and say you cannot find it, you ought to get slapped and just migrate out of Singapore lah, since you are such a #FAIL sinkie. And you no mouth to ask other people on the road meh?
3) STUCK IN TRAFFIC JAM
This is probably the NUMERO UNO excuse Singaporeans give. Use it once or twice maybe ok but if you constantly have this problem daily, shouldn't you consider leaving home earlier rather than plan everything zhun zhun? As if everyday also got breakdown on the road liddat. #MaiGeiSiaoLah
4) I JUST MISSED THE DAMN BUS
We forever very SWAY, everytime take bus, the bus will leave the moment we are about to reach the bus stop. After that we got to wait for another hour before the bus arrives. Ever heard of the BUS TIMING application on your iPhone / Android / Blackberry? Use it lah #Bodoh!
5) I FORGOT TO TAKE MY WALLET
Do you forget to pang sai? forget to eat? forget to drink water? forget to chill? forget to sleep? Why not just forget your name lah? You get the jist!
6) I HELP BLIND MAN CROSS THE ROAD
You think we still three year olds is it? Better get STOMP-ed if you want us to believe.
7) I WANT AVOID THE ERP
Apparently your friendship or your job is worth less than the $1.00 or $2.00 that you got to pay for ERP. Win liao lor you...
