One of the most kiasu passengers are Singaporeans. They come on board the flight and make their money's worth. They asked for everything, from free playing cards,children's stuff toys to if possible the A380 too.
The richer ones are as bad. If they fly business,they would ask for first class champagne and food like the ex-ceo of a charitable organisation. There was one businessman who travelled first class and "swiped" all the cologne,after-shave lotion etc to be told off by an IFS who has since left SQ and is a successful housing agent. The same businessman was later charged for white collar crime and sentenced to prison.
There was another Singaporean who pointed at the busy stewardess serving them and told her little daughter " better study hard or else you have to work very hard like this auntie(referring to the stewardess)".
One rich first class passenger after reading one or two pages of the newspaper would throw them onto the cabin floor.
At one time, if a passenger were to complain about the service in writing, SIA staff would sent chocolates to appease the complainant. Taking the advantage of the kindness and generosity of the airline, the crew had often heard one passenger telling another to complain about the crew,service or anything SIA so they can get free chocolate ( I wonder if this sort of generosity had affected the bottom line).
Ok thats so much for Singaporeans as passengers on SQ. Now what about Singaporeans on the ground? No better right?
This afternoon, boh tong realising that there was nobody at a supermarket cashier queue decided to pay for his 3 grocery items. While reaching out for his wallet, a lady spoke in English and told boh tong " hey can't you see my basket next to the cashier?...why you just jump queue like that ah?" Apprarently she left her basket of groceries there and went to pick more items somewhere and was furious when BT decided to pay for his items before her.
There was another incidence at a shopping center on a different day. There was this family of 3 linning themselves and blocking the escalator travelling upward. BT in his usual nice soft voice said "excuse me" but fell on deaf ears. As BT was in a hurry, he bowed and squeezed through, much to the annoyance of this big young fellow. This fellow told BT in English " you almost touch my wife".
Frankly, even forced his ugly fat wife onto BT, BT can't have an erection...yucks...BT not boasting but could have touched many a pretty stewardesses and they won't even say a word. Ugly and kiasu Singaporean really sucks and pisses people off.
