MRT COMMUTER REFUSES TO GIVE UP RESERVED SEAT TO MAN CARRYING BABY, IS HE OBLIGED TO DO SO?

An ASS reader sent in a complaint after witnessing a man refusing to give up his reserved seating even though there was a more needy person nearby.

I was sitting on a reserved seat on the train when a middle aged man walked over from the other cabin and stopped in front of me.

A fully abled bodied, well functioning man sitting on the reserved seat was kindly & politely asked by me if he may offer the seat to a woman struggling with a baby boy strapped to her chest. 'Its my choice and I am NOT giving up my seat to her' he replied me in actual words. Dead silence in the cabin and everyone's disgusted stare was upon him.

FOREIGN WORKERS LACK OF CIVIC-MINDEDNESS TOWARDS CHILDREN & ELDERLY S’POREANS ON MRT

I boarded the MRT with my 6 yrs-old (going on to 7 yrs-old; P1 this year) son at Sengkang station and we planned to go to Dhoby Ghaut MRT. When we boarded the train, it was crowded and there wasn't much space to stand. My son stood next to a reserved seat which was taken by an Indian construction worker. He was listening to walkman and didn't give up seat to my son throughout our ride in the train.
