We are just boors!
Kiasu department report part I (from Today):
Take the case of the elderly Chinese woman in the queue of the express check-out lane of Giant supermart at Parkway Parade the other day. At the cashier, she started emptying the contents of her trolley which was three-quarters full.
The cashier patiently explained to her that the maximum number of items per person was six. The woman turned around and pointed out to the toddler and Filipino maid standing just behind her, implying that she was therefore qualified to check out 18 items.
After some argument, the cashier attended to her so that normal business could resume. Some in the queue smiled. Some looked at the ceiling while others shrugged their shoulders.
Ah Singaporeans. If there's a loophole in a system, they'll find it.
