While performing temperature-taking duties at an Fairprice outlet, a youth and his friend played pranks on the patrons which they filmed on video.

Shoppers who came to the NTUC outlet located at Orchard Grand Court on Wednesday (Apr 29), had their forearms checked for a stamp that allegedly allowed them to enter the store.

The temporary-staff member could be seen without his mask on, shining the torch of his mobile phone onto the forearms of patrons under the guise of looking for a chop.

The video, filmed and uploaded by them onto Instagram showed the boy ‘checking’ at least two men for these stamps before allowing them into the store.

In the video, he can be heard telling one of the men, “Eh, don’t have (the stamp) why ah? This one?” he laughed, shining his phone’s torch onto the man’s leg.

In another instance, he asked a woman if she had anything on her person, before making her raise her hands.

The video, circulating on WhatsApp messenger quickly went viral.

In response to TISG’s queries, a Fairprice spokesperson said: “FairPrice is aware of a video circulating online on the unprofessional conduct of a person while performing temperature taking duties at the entrance of one of our stores.
