Singaporeans, PLEASE practice Courtesy and Good Mannerism.
Recently I find Singaporeans had really bad manners. Is it because of Cheena people influences? I saw a lot of unglam acts by Cheena people( not applicable to Cheena students). Mostly are those who come here to earn our money!
In MRT, they block the way of people alighting! never give up seats to needy people! somemore still act sleepy and doze off! any o how throw litters like cleaners should clean up for them! never say thank you or please when they should! never respect people property!
My family had once rented a room to Cheena people, they just our things as if it was their! never ask our permission and never say thank you when used! ask got used anot but don't dare admit! RAWR!
One set a good example and everyone will follow. One set a bad example and everyone will follow too.
