    • As related by a blue sonata cabby friend (Richard) of mine:

       Richard was looking for a lot in an open-air car park of a hawker centre during his lunch break and he noticed a silver Kia on his left preparing to leave. All lots on his right are season lots. Judging that the Kia is not ready to leave soon, he circled to the other side looking for other lots.

      Unsuccessful, he returned to the Kia’s lot and as he was approaching the Kia (about 12 lots away), a car left its lot about 4 lots away from Richard’s left. Richard stopped to allow the car to pass and was pleased that he got a lot as the car park was crowded at the time. 

      Suddenly, from nowhere, a driver in a black BMW (ASS) dashed from the opposite direction and reversed into the lot. ASS, in his haste, did not manage to park properly in his first attempt. As the Kia just left his lot, Richard inched forward to indicate that he wanted to pass. ASS immediately dashed forward again blocking the path of both Richard and the Kia. He looked at Richard angrily and refused to reverse back. After several seconds, ASS finally reversed into his lot. 

      Richard shook his head in disgust but continued towards the lot vacated by the Kia. However, a van was already preparing to reverse into the lot. Cursing his bad luck, Richard waited for the van to park. Whilst waiting, Richard noticed from his rear view mirror that ASS has left his car and was walking towards his cab gesturing to Richard with his index finger insultingly, summoning him. “wtf, u took my lot, make me lose another and I must report to u for lecture? Who u think u are!” Richard thought. Richard ignored him and continued his search but noticed that ASS had angrily took out his mobile and started snapping shots of his cab. 

      As Richard circled around to the other side of the car park, ASS continued to pursue Richard obviously wanting a confrontation. Richard was really irritated and wound down his window and showed ASS the big BIRD so that he can BACK OFF. 

      Richard finally parked at roughly the opposite side of the car park where ASS parked. ASS had followed Richard for 60-70 metres round the car park on foot just for a confrontation. As Richard got out and closed the door of the cab, ASS approached menacingly and with his face barely 2-3 cm away from Richard’s, yelled: “why you show middle finger at me?” Richard thought he was about to get assaulted but stood his ground and retorted: “so, you going to assault me for a small matter like this? Fxxx you!” 

      Realising that Richard wasn’t that easy to bully, ASS changed tactics and started taunting Richard to repeat what was just said so he could tape down the conversation. “I’m going to complain to your company. You all taxi drivers….” Richard walked off towards the hawker centre not wanting to hear any further insults. On looking back, Richard found ASS still hanging around his cab. Richard returned to his cab and fearing for the cab and his safety, decided to call the police and report of harassment and attempted assault. ASS continued to taunt him and challenged Richard to stay and “settle” the matter and wait for the police. Richard ignored him and went to the hawker centre to order food. 

      Two constables arrived in a patrol car about 2 minutes later and listened to Richard’s complaint. ASS was nowhere to be found. When asked to identify the car, Richard could not as in the lot where Richard remembered ASS parked was a black Volvo! “Is this the car, I thought it was a BMW! I’m seldom wrong about such things. Maybe he had left” Richard thought. 

      I feel that Richard’s dignity and rights had been violated. ASS obviously thought he had the upper hand and could bully someone who he thought could not retaliate. 

      Your thoughts on this, fellas!

    • I wonder why people have to fight for a parking lot. I would just give it up without thinking twice. It says a lot about self respectability.

    • There are many aspects of Driving that is not taught at driving school. Some might be, but they are not taught in completion, just partial course.

      Parking happens to be one of them.

      show police and they believe...  you know the SGT even challenge the bastard to park his car to block my taxi since he mentioned and want to book him,  worst is the arguement between the SGT and bastard go so hot that the SGT took down his rain, his fellow officer even tell the bastard to complain them if he want.  haha  what a joke, i just stood beside my taxi and watch free show

      .

      if your friend next time encounter again, remember to take now the other party vehicle number just in case needed.

      if the other party even just touch your friend, just yell and pretend fall down in front of the public, sure got people to help and be witness if there are people watching

      Thanx bro for the benefits of yr exp and moral suport. i'm sure richard will appreciate it. According to richard, the 999 hotline asked for his phone no, so he thought no point wasting time waiting.

      Furthermore there could be more taunting and he (richard) may not be able to hold back anymore.

      richard is just waiting for the compliant to come.

    • so remember like i say , must take other party car number, and move to crowded people if possible to protect oneself, just in case

    • since your friend driving comfark,    tell your friend to call up his DRO to report and make record with comfark so in case complain came in, damage in redue.  if don't do, complain come,  comfark always listen to public first.... this is how how comfark work.... if really suay suay because of this kenna terminated, let me know, see can help........................  any way i also terminated  by citycab last time... lazy to appeal dislike their system,   RTN taxi ask me why not appeal.. i just tell them appeal for doing nothing wrong, so funny

    • To think in the USA they dun give a fuck about driving tests, morality tests, road rules mugging and all that shit and even allow the age to be stuck at 15, yet Singapore has the world’s craziest drivers whose manner PALE in comparison to those of the american drivers.

      tsk tsk. shows you the utter failure of the singapore driving and educational system. what are our teachers telling our kids? its ok to fight as long aas you do well? results are everything right? look what happened here. the BMW driver got his ‘result’.
