Monkeys on the train 
18th-Jun-2005 05:28 pm
Taking public transport has its hazards, but on the way home just now, this just made my blood boil.

Not only should this woman be neutered, she should be banned from ever having sex again.

Please observe how her monkey climbs the poles using his stinky feet onto the rings, showing such physical finess... worthy of joining Cirque de Soleil.
God, would someone make him run away to the circus NOW?!

And if one monkey isn't enough, how about two? This one enjoyed swinging himself around and around the pole, occassionally kicking other passengers in the shins without apology.

And of course with two monkeys, you get twice the fun! Watch them compete with each other who can climb to the top first!

Wondering what Mama Peabrain Monkey is doing all this time? Oh, just ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Despite the seats available, she isn't half-arsed to tell her evil spawn to sit-the-hell-down. Neither does she apologise to the other passengers when her monkeys kick them in their play.

No. She just watches them with all adoration, cuz come on! They're her SONS.
And since they're ONLY kids, they should be allowed to treat the train as their personal playground, right? Who cares if people might put their hands on those poles later?!

My sentiments exactly, lady.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com When one decided to use the nearest pole to me as his personal swing, I said very loudly:

"If this kid kicks me, I'm gonna kick him back."

His mum takes no notice of the comment, but the other passengers visibly shift uncomfortably in their seats.

If I had behaved like this in public as a child, my mother would've grabbed me by the arm and given me a hard smack before planting me onto her lap or into the nearest seat.

Damn itchy backsides.

haha!!! Your post made my day!!

I couldn't agree with you more that the mother of those two boys should be neutered. *guffaw*

Anyway, manners aside, it is not only rude & unsanitary to do that, it is also very dangerous as incase the train lurches they might hurt others if nevermind themselves.

Not only does the mother need to be neutered, her sons should be too.

I wish the pole would have made the boys lost their manhood! I still hope they grow up with problems in that department.

BTW the woman[whom you said was the mother or is she really just a breeder? fuck & fuck is her job & nothing else?] certainly do not behave like it's her own monkeys. She must hate those 2 rascals! I do just by looking @ your pictures. GRRRR I hate ill behaved kids. When I watch them in action, I am always tempted to kick or slap them. Lousy ubringing seems to be a trend of late. I see ill behaved, annoying kids everywhere.

Sorry for ranting in your entry.

no problem. i don't think enough people rant about this, cuz i honestly think more kids are misbehaving today than say, 10 years ago.
19th-Jun-2005 02:03 pm (UTC)
10 years ago we still got caned without a second thought.
now... is a little harder.
19th-Jun-2005 05:47 am (UTC)
ARgh... I HATE it when that happens! I don't know what those parents were thinking, letting their kids run amok and actually finding it ADORABLE. Once, there was this kid in the bus who was pushing everyone and basically cursing in Chinese (ie repeating the word CB over and over again). And his mother just laughed! Laughed I tell you!

19th-Jun-2005 05:50 am (UTC)
Hmmm... didn't the mother do something when you started taking the pictures?

I've realised that is a surefire way of getting them to stop: start taking digital photos.  If that's not enough, start muttering something about posting it on the internet.  They'll control their sons alright.

Singaporeans value face more than anything else.  The only way to directly whack her blinded adoration of her sons is to threaten to malu them.
19th-Jun-2005 06:03 am (UTC)
nope. i whipped out my digicam and they all didn't care.
20th-Jun-2005 01:52 am (UTC)
oh my god lar.... terrible! if any kid behaved like that near me i swear i'll kick them in the shins and behave as though it's the most natural thing in the world lar!! this is why i take taxis...... *sigh*
20th-Jun-2005 02:46 am (UTC)
bad parenting like that should be punishable by fireing squad.
20th-Jun-2005 11:41 am (UTC)
oh wow you actually took pics huh. hahahahah. amusing post <3
20th-Jun-2005 12:23 pm (UTC)
why not? they were doing this from dhoby ghaut till i got off at kovan. plenty of time and opportunity to do it.
20th-Jun-2005 12:36 pm (UTC)
Aww man! Stupid gross kids!! If I were there, I would have told them off(although I'm not exactly an adult and their mum would probably tell me off). Even if the mum didn't care about other passengers, her kids were CLIMBING the bloody poles. They could've injured themselves! Loved the last picture though.
20th-Jun-2005 05:30 pm (UTC)
Ironic, that we Singaporeans did nothing to discourage those acts.

Wow, the stupidity. ^^
20th-Jun-2005 06:21 pm (UTC)
actually, i was >this< close to smacking the nearest kid with my half-empty Aqua water bottle, but my boyfriend stopped me (he's not Singaporean).

seriously regret letting him stop me.

After giving this some thought..

Most people are too afraid to stand up and put the children in place, for 1.) the issue is too "small" to tackle, and 2.) no one else would help them if the children ignore the protaganist.

Thinking back, I'm glad I yelled at a half a bus-load of yelling school children to shut up when they filled the super-bus with so much noise, it looked like the bus was a mobile noise hazard.

Hello, randomed from sg_ljers!

I felt that this entry is really good. My exact sentiments of kids and parents in public transport.

Stupid people who treat the MRT as a playground.

Like, it totally deserve to be posted in The Straits Times Forum!!!!!!

erm, thanks! although i wouldn't want to be highlighted on the ST forum. the media can be quite vicious.
