In an email to STOMP today (Jul 2), the STOMPer says:
“I boarded the MRT at Woodlands on July 2, around 1pm when I saw a couple giving up their seats to this old man. The old man then occupied two seats instead of one.
“Another young boy wanted to take one of the seats, but the old man just ignored him and continued letting his plastic bag ‘sit’.
“If he can put his red plastic bag of things on the floor, why not this other plastic bag?
“Furthermore, he is putting his legs on the seat, without his shoes.
“I think this is extremely unsightly and he is inconsiderate to the people around him!
“When I tried to take a picture of him, he covered his face.
“I think he is abusing the ‘give up seats’ acts by people.”
