Food delivery rider goes ballistic and launches a verbal tirade at security officers

Food delivery rider goes ballistic and launches a verbal tirade at security officers

Another day, another, uh, video that showcases the ugly side of Singapore.

Welcome to 2021, people. 2020 was less than a pleasant year, so this writer is sure most people would like to leave all that unhappiness behind and start the year on a fresh note, without conflict, anger, agony, and just general headache. Basically, take a chill pill.

Unfortunately, we have here one of our first candidates for idiot of the year, 2021 edition. My friend, it is not even the end of the first week of January, and you are already causing such a ruckus over a matter so trivial? Please, do everyone a favour, go back to 2020 and stay there.

The matter seems to have risen from the security guards requesting the food delivery rider to park his bike at a less disruptive or perhaps more agreeable place, with the location of the incident being the Marina One building at Straits View.

By now, it should be more or less known that the security guards at buildings in the CBD can be a little more stringent than their counterparts in other parts of Singapore. But ultimately, they're at the bottom of the food chain, having to enforce the instructions that have been laid out to them. But still, a little give and take is usually enough for everyone to settle on an amicable solution should one need to stop their vehicle at one of these buildings in the CBD. Talking nicely to everyone helps, too.

Well, this guy obviously did not get the memo. Not only was his tone extremely aggressive, he continually raised his voice at the security officers who were trying their best to keep their cool and maintain the situation the best they could.

But oh no, Mr Polite was having none of it.

If this writer were to reproduce some of the words and phrases shouted out by the raging delivery guy, well, this writer would be in a world of trouble, and then some.

Simply put, the security guards were trying to deescalate the situation, calm everyone down, let life move on. But no, Mr Angry just kept shouting, and shouting, and shouting, even at one point disparaging one of the security guard's educational qualifications.

Perhaps Mr Angry should look back at what he learnt in driving school, because he continually insists that he is allowed to park on the double yellow line and that "with LTA, there is a grace period of 10 minutes".

My friend, if you bothered to do a simple Google search of "double yellow line Singapore", one of the first results to pop up is from the LTA site OneMotoring with photographic instructions about how there should be "no parking on this side of the road at all times, except for immediate pick-up and drop-off only". I do want to know where angry delivery rider got his information about LTA giving 10 minutes grace because I have never heard of such a grace period. Perhaps angry delivery guy is smoking something real good and distorting all the facts and information of daily life around him.

To this writer, the more the delivery guy rages, the deeper the hole of stupidity he digs for himself. But yes, the security guards could have been a little more understanding, perhaps, but if you, rage monster, didn't raise your voice at them and started filming them with your phone, this matter could have been resolved a lot more amicably.

This writer also wonders if the angry delivery rider has read the comments, because the comments are all bashing him and his behaviour.

And lastly, at the end of the video, the security guards say "thank you", turn their backs and start walking away. Basically, they are disengaging from the situation because talking to stupid people is obviously tiring. But no, Mr Angry still wants the last word, and starts gesticulating with his hand in various "kung fu" hand positions and continues his verbal tirade. It's a good thing the guards don't bother responding.

My friend, this writer advises you to get therapy, because it seems like you need it. Or if that doesn't work, a long walk off a very short pier. 😏

Singapore is small enough; PMDs and bicycles should only be allowed on park connectors. I have seen cyclists speeding on pedestrian walk paths not to mention PMDs.

All these irresponsible speeding idiots should be punished before they kill anybody.

Sooner or later ., if things get out of control, food delivery guy only need to pass it to security guard if the tanant don’t come down to collect.. u know security is rather tight in some of the places that if the host don’t inform the security that this person will be coming, he or she goes not even have the ability to change pass

building management should just build a tarpao counter n everyone would live happily ever after

    Otters nearly didn't get to live another day at Orchard Road crossing

    Seen on Mothership.sg is a family of otters trying to cross Orchard Road near Plaza Singapura over the weekend. With more than 10 of them in the family, the leader of the pack tried a few times to cross the road despite the heavy traffic.  According to the article, the otters, which were squeaking, turned around twice as they realised it was not the right time to cross yet. We bet it must have been nerve-wrecking for everyone viewing this, especially the last part where a yellow CityCab taxi nearly couldn't stop in time for them. Thankfully, all of them made it across eventually.

    Cyclist makes a bad decision on Mandai road that almost sends himself to the nearby crematorium

    Why Drivers Hate To See Cyclists To all cycling enthusiasts and pro-cycling people, this 'PBK' in the video is one reason why drivers hate you. Please watch this video (uploaded by SG Road Vigilante) and tell me whether you feel the rage I feel as a driver. Source: SG Road Vigilante YouTube   What's Happening In this 0.29 second video, we see a cyclist doing a series of wrong things (in just 3 seconds) 1.       He's cycling on a footpath when he should be on the road 2.       He does not check his blind spot 3.       He makes a 'lane change' to the road with total disregard to traffic This incident happens along Mandai Road, near the Mandai Crematorium (which is where he would have gone if he had been run down). What's worse, from the cam car's footage, it looks like it might have hit the KIA Niro in front that had to do an emergency brake (the recording cuts off before any impact, so I can only speculate).   The Online Chatter THIS PERSON’S COMMENT ALL CAPS. I CAN FEEL THE ANGST. I also say.

    Van tries squeezing through merging lane, gets kissed on the bumper instead!

    Is this another case of drivers having ego issues? Or was the driver of the Toyota Hiace simply not paying attention?   Posted on SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page is this video of two drivers exiting into the KPE via a merging lane.  We have no idea why would either driver would allow such a silly accident to happen to themselves. In our reckoning, the accident probably happened at less than 20km/h with the Hiace mini van slowing going into the rear of the Hyundai Elantra as the lane merges into a single one.  Is the trouble of needing to waste time and money to get both vehicles repaired worth it? We think not. Giving way to the other vehicle and/or paying attention on the road is a way smarter option in our opinion...

    Honda Fit gets caught in a battle of egos!

    Here's another battle of egos between two drivers.   Spotted on SG Road Vigilante is the video of a camera car going up against a Honda Fit that has a Private-hire decal. It also has a P-plate in case you didn't notice.  To cut to the chase, both drivers ended up facing each other on a single lane road that was filled with other vehicles illegally parked on one side. A not-very-pleased lady then got out of her Honda and went up to the camera car before giving him/her a piece of her mind. We don't hear or see anything from the camera car's end but we reckoned something happened, causing the lady to flash her middle finger before heading back into her Fit. Sadly, we don't get see how this silly battle of pride and ego ends in the video.  In our opinion, both drivers seemed foolish. Is it so hard to just give way so that everyone can move on? Let us know in the comments what you guys think!
