Mercedes C-Class hogs sheltered driveway while it rains, lady in car behind explodes

Today on "Things you thought would happen but instead went differently", we have here 2 cars who both want to drop off and or pick up their passengers at some condominium. As some context to the title, the video was taken on 10 January 2021, and the weather has been pretty cool these past few days, slightly chilly even. So you might think the weather would perhaps let people have a bit more "chill" in their daily outlook on life too.

 

Oh, you naïve thing, you. 

 

If there is one thing we can always count on, is that Singaporeans can almost always be counted on the overreact, grumble and whine about incidents that are perhaps inconsequential to most of us but of utter and outright importance to these snowflakes.

So yes, the Mercedes is hogging the pick up/drop off point. Maybe the car behind the Mercedes did try to gain the attention of the Merc's occupants, but the occupants in the Mercedes perhaps didn't realise it. Either way, lady, do you really need to jump out of your car like your seat is on fire, brandishing your phone to record the offending party's "transgressions"? If you listen to the video clearly, the way the lady slams her door with such conviction like she's on a warpath while taking the video makes this writer feel like she's taking this issue a little too seriously.

That said, the Mercedes isn't completely innocent either. Yes, we all know that you are waiting for someone to arrive before you go. But if the driveway only has so much space, just make a loop so you don't obstruct the car behind you. Let's be a little more gracious. No one likes getting wet unnecessarily, we all know that, but people don't exactly enjoy being delayed either.

Give and take, live and let learn, you scratch my back I scratch yours, do you see where this is going? Also, lady in the Mercedes, your sarcastic tone does you absolutely no favours. Driving one loop to let others alight first burns a lot of petrol, is it. If you can afford a late-generation Merc, don't say you can't afford the cost of petrol. 

 

As Mahatma Gandhi once said, "To lose patience is to lose the battle"

 

But to the lady who is recording this whole thing. Just, uh, wow. Very mature response there, auntie. Perhaps try talking nicely to people in the future if you want something, even if you are extremely irritated. It also helps if you don't actively try to film the whole incident down like some wannabe paparazzi. People don't like having cameras thrust into their faces without rhyme or reason. If the shoe was on the other foot, how would that make you feel?

Also, auntie, please don't go and knock a car that isn't yours (1:28 in the video), people really don't like that. Don't cause more trouble than what you need for yourself because you never know how it could come back to bite you.

It's incidents like this that makes this writer believe that no one actually remembers Singa the Courtesy Lion or the message he was trying to push.  Come on people, everything Singa stood for is literally in his name. It can't get any clearer than that. No wonder Singa quit, because no matter how hard he tried, perhaps he just could never get across to the kind of people in the video above 🤷‍♂️.

Just chill, everyone. 2020 didn't kill us, and 2021 just started. A little patience never killed anyone. And also it is a little too premature in the year for over-the-top nonsense so let's all just try to get along for now. For now.

Just give way mah! Not first come first serve, it a public area. Why need to wait in the shelter, the car get wetter? Sigh!

This is a clear cut of the MB driver in the wrong or being selfish and entitled.  That area is a drop off point , and when a car is behind , they should move off and wait their turn.  The lady behind could have chosen to sit in the car and horn till the car moved and disturb everyone , but she brave the rain to tell the selfish MB to move.

I think there might be more to it than what the video showed. We don't really know what happened prior. Quite unlikely for someone to get so angry over such small issue.

Seeing all the behaviours from lousy drivers, attitude drivers like this and cyclists issue. All these just conclude that we are indeed first world but the people are worse than 3rd world. Material rich but inside all hollow.

    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.

    BMW 5 Series driver loses control and flips car

    Despite many manufacturers equipping their cars with many safety systems onboard their cars, they do not make the car immune to the laws of physics as we can see from these videos below. front.MP4 We got hold of these videos via some of the various random group chats that have been circulating it and from the looks of it, the accident happened earlier this morning (9 Jan 2020) while the roads were greasy from the drizzle over the day. We are not sure which part of the ECP highway this is but what is clear is that the camera car was driving at his own pace on lane 2 before (what looks like) a group of 3 BMW F10 5 series overtaking the camera car. Unfortunately, one of them lost control while trying to overtake his mates due to the last min abrupt weight transfer as he did the sudden lane change from 1 to 3. 44db9e47-1ba5-44ab-a4c2-1ad0dc8180cd.MP4 We have no idea if the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) was turn off or was it too much even for the DSC to save in the first place? Kudos to BMW for building a decently strong car. Despite the seriousness of the crash, the car still looked like it held up pretty well. Anyway, with the recent rainy weather, do take extra care when on the roads and make sure your tyres have enough thread!

    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.

    Mazda 3 with expired road tax rages on camera car

    We start off the week with video that happened a week or so ago but only started to trend recently. Seen on SG Road Vigilante, is this particular Mazda 3 driver that became so triggered that he had to get out of his car with vulgarities spewing out of his mouth non stop.  Like all road rage incidents though, it takes two to clap. Thankfully, the camera car driver was honest enough to show what he did that made the Mazda 3 driver so pissed. We could see him honking the Mazda as the road merge at the junction along Bedok North Road, before speeding past the Mazda which also tried to filter into the middle lane due to construction works ahead.  Those two actions probably triggered the Mazda 3 driver bad and when he got to block the camera car, he made sure he was heard by the camera car. Probably not wanting to blow this up, the camera car drove off after the heated exchange of words but the Mazda 3, whose road tax had also expired, gave chase and did some not-very-nice gestures when he caught up... Let us know what are your thoughts on this case of road rage!
