“Is this a toilet or a cubicle for eating?” asked Mr See. “Why make things hard for the cleaner who are looking after the toilet,” he added.

Although it is not uncommon for people to consume their meals in a bathroom cubicle, especially nowadays when certain public dining areas have been closed off during the circuit breaker period, they should have the courtesy of cleaning after themselves and leave the toilet clean for the next user.

Jeremy Liang found it disheartening to hear of people having to hide in the toilet just to eat their food because doing so in public could result in apprehension. While a few noted that the culprit could be going through hardships, Mr See highlighted that the elderly aunties and uncles with cleaning jobs also deserved some understanding.
