Encounter at the lift lobby (Singapore)

I really had to comment on this. Just now we were at the lift lobby of our place, while I was carrying quite a handful of stuffs and my husband was carrying our little son sleeping. We were there waiting for the lift to come. Then came along a woman in her mid 40s. She squeezed in front to the lift that is coming down to level 1. She gets in the moment the lift door opens, and we were shocked that she keeps pressing on the door close button. The lift door slammed on to my husband, and luckily he managed to use his body on the door sensors to open the door. The inconsiderate woman did not apologize and looked away. If our son was not sleeping, my husband and I was sure to give her a piece of our mind.

Why would this happen in our so called fine city? First the encounter in the MRT, and now this encounter. Why is it that our people are being so inconsiderate? I am pregnant, you know?

Encounter on MRT (Singapore)

I have an interesting encounter on MRT today. I am 6 month+ pregnant and thus my tummy was pretty obvious. This is what happened.

When I boarded the MRT in the evening after work, and stood infront of the seat whereby "priority seating" sign was placed. Rightfully, I'm entitled to it as it's priority seating for elderly, children, pregnant or anyone who need the seat more than others. This seat was already taken by a young man, in his twenties. He looked at me, and established eye contact for a while. I expected him to give up his seat for me, but it didn't happened. He looked away, and then looked down and "fell asleep". The amazing thing is that those pple seating beside him all "fell asleep" too. I think they became very tired after they saw me boarding the train. Hahaha....

Luckily, I'm just 10 minutes away from my destination and I don't really need the seat.

I was thinking, whether is it possible for MRT to dedicate a cabin for this group of pple with special needs?
