The “reserved seat” sign we often see on PUJs and PUVs often indicate that the seat is provided for disabled, elderly, pregnant woman, or woman carrying children. However, most of the time, these seats are taken by just any passenger because not all the time, the persons the seat is intended for is present.
However, a pregnant woman was enraged after the “reserved seat” was taken by a couple. In a video that circulated online, the woman was saying mean words to the couple such as the following:
“Don’t understand what is Reserved Seating. He understands what pregnancy is, he understands what his mum and baby is, but he doesn’t understand what is the Reserved Seating for.”
“This idiot. This last over here. Look at the stupid boyfriend.”
She also said a few words to the woman sitting next to the man.
“Pity you lah. So pretty, (still) get this kind of boyfriend.”
In a report by Viral 4 Real, one witness claims that the pregnant woman already took a seat in front of the couple but she still verbally attacked the couple who only stayed silent all throughout the ordeal.
The witness said:
“A typical case of a petty Singaporean. She was a pregnant lady with four kids together with her husband, mother, and her helper in the train.”
“She already got herself the Reserved Seat right opposite this guy when she recorded this video. So the moment, the couple alighted, her husband took up the reserved seat and she even raised her voice slightly at her helper for not being fast enough to get the seats in the train.”
“So what’s her intention of recording this video?”
