KIND TAXI UNCLE DROPPED LADY OFF AT MRT STN TO AVOID BKE JAM & REFUSED PAYMENT

I left house early for tuition in hopes to reach my tutee's house earlier. However, the feeder service at my area was delayed 20 minutes due to the oil spill at Woodlands.

I think he could see that I was panicking and then he decided to drop me off at some random bus stop and asked me to take the train instead because the jam definitely wouldn't clear anytime soon and also to save me from the meter fare. When I took out my wallet to pay, he rejected my money immediately and said it's okay and even told me to hurry to my tutee's house.
