MRT Breakdown

FT SAYS SGREANS STRANDED BY MRT DELAY STUPID FOR COMPLAINING

With the MRT disruption today, everybody were panicking and kicking a big fuss here and there but me and some of my friends were calm in finding ways to commute to work, having worked in Singapore for 10 years. There are tricks to overcome the surge by grab and uber in the event of train breakdown and you have to be smart to think of it.

We all get to work on time while silly Singaporeans were there contemplating on what to do next, some even took MC! Now if they can't stop to think for a second to find solution to such problems, they will blame others for that and also if they continue to be like this, I can guarantee, within 5 years, Singaporeans are going to be unemployed.

But besides that point, doesn't the minister realise that even if commuters are directed to the right bus stop and right queue during a breakdown, the buses and taxis cannot come fast enough! So what if I am in the right queue when I still need 2-3 hours to get to my destination?
