SINGAPORE: In response to a recent video circulating social media featuring a young individual seen running around with a supermarket trolley, many called out the behaviour, labelling it as reckless.
An online user took to social media on Monday (Aug 7) to share a video with the Singapore Incidents Facebook page featuring the rather boisterous behaviour of young individuals outside a supermarket.
The 13-second video filmed youths running in an open space, with one pushing a shopping trolley, before letting it go and watching it crash into a flight of stairs. “Kids too free nowadays,” the video was captioned.
A handful of online users responded to the post, sharing their sentiments. While some were sarcastic, others blatantly called out the youngsters’ reckless behaviour.
“Nothing funny!” said one. “The kids need to be made to pay for the trolley if they destroy it on purpose.”
“Your parents will be so proud of you,” said another sarcastically.
“Sit inside and push each other lah why must destroy the trolley. Then put back so other people can use,” wrote a third.
“Make them pay for damages to property and do corrective work for six hours,” suggested another.
Still, a few others joked about how the youth were studying science. “They are learning physics through physical interaction. That’s good,” said one.
Another wrote, “Learning science about push, force, speed, impact and the aftermath of being caught doing it on camera.”
One netizen, however, went so far as to call it a crime, saying, “This is a crime. The trolley doesn’t belong to him. The act is known as theft and vandalism. Must teach him a lesson.”
