A video of a lady, and a man who she says is father, trying to board an SBS bus to go to Malaysia goes viral. The pair try to squeeze into an already full bus by yelling at other commuters and the bus driver for not moving in and for refusing to move off.
The video shared on Facebook page All Singapore Stuff received 75,000 views and over 1000 shares.
According to the caption on the video, the pair were boarding SBS bus 170x to Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
The video starts with a man yelling, “How you become bus driver? How the hell you become bus driver”.
Another commuter on the packed bus tells him not to shout, when the man and his daughter respond by yelling at others to “Go in a bit”.
The man then starts picking a fight with the commuters next to him. Someone says “Oi, don’t push me”, and there is a lot of jostling at the front of the bus. After the lady and her father squeeze onto the bus, she yells at the bus driver, “Door can close now what, close the door”.
In a raised tone, the lady tells the other passengers, “Want to scold old man for what. My father is a sick man, you know. He is a sick person”.
The others in the bus yell at her to be considerate, while another lady in the front shouts for people to move in and to make room.
Netizens who commented on the video had mixed reactions. Some said that the buses usually were completely filled before the bus moved off. Others also said the commuters in the bus should have been more considerate by moving in to make room. Most took the side of the lady and her father and said that almost always there was room in the bus and that people really just needed to move in.
