Is the weather really that warm that you need to ride without clothes?
This motorcyclist thinks so.
Spotted on SGRV's Facebook and many other sources, a short-hair motorcyclist can be seen riding nude by the camera bike traveling along PIE towards changi. The nude rider then left the highway via the Bedok North Rd exit with the camera bike following closely, allowing us to get a closer look at this bewildering sight.
Thankfully, the video that has been uploaded to the web doesn't show his private parts...
So today, we have a video that highlights the ultimate Singaporean gangster driver.
Uncle Koba has watched this video more than ten times and still raging internally 😈
Unspoken rules of parking
There are 'unwritten rules' when it comes to parking whether it may be at a HDB, condominium, shopping mall or wherever.
A vehicle waiting to park can wait for a lot to open up within a 'three lot range' from the front and rear of his vehicle. This range varies from person to person but other drivers looking for parking space would usually leave a healthy distance between their car and yours.
But, if you are a gangster driver like this Toyota Wish driver, all you need to do is spot an empty lot, head in and yell "Please move your car!" when confronted.
Here's the video for you to rage at.
Who does this?
A#$holes. Only a@#holes do this.
Hello a#$hole. You're famous now.
The poor dude that wanted to park came out and confronted the Wish driver
Here's a breakdown of their short conversation:
Morale of the story
Your time may be precious, but that doesn't mean that other people's time isn't.
We should respect one another no matter what we do in life.
If this happened to Uncle Koba, I might have just parked in front of him and ask him to wait for me to leave then he can leave. 😬 #angry
Remember the good old days where you could bring your whole family across the border and enjoy everything our neighbouring country has to offer?
With the affordable prices of petrol, topping up your gas tank before coming back to Singapore was something no one would skip.
But there are some people who go a little too far to save a couple of dollars.
Like this! 😂
Which brings us to video below. I'm scratching my head as to why this driver is trying to ensure that every cubic meter of fuel is stored inside his car. Given that our petrol prices in Singapore are exorbitant now.
A little bit of Myth busting
Myth - Do I really save money if I am able to top up my car to the brim? 🤔
One of the Quora-ist mentions that it is insignificant to have the petrol tank pump to the brim.
My personal take on the matter
The whole shaking action is unnecessary.
Once you hear the nozzle click, it means that the next time you'll have to refuel would be in 5 to 6 days, give or take. Shaking the car does not mean you'll extend that time significantly.
Furthermore, over-filling your fuel tank could potentially result in damage to your vehicle’s charcoal cannister, which is part of its vapour recovery or Evaporative Recovery System.
If you really want to save fuel, drive like a saint and don't over-rev your car when driving. Always plan your route ahead and leave the house early so you will not drive like a madman.
Peace out! ✌️
According to Stomp, this guy booked a GrabHitch ride in Choa Chu Kang on Friday afternoon. He scheduled the ride for 3.15pm, but the driver sent a message to ask if it will be ok for him to arrive at 3.25pm. The passenger then asked if the driver could reach by 3.15pm instead but received a snide reply:
"I drive car not aeroplane"
The driver eventually cancelled the ride.
It seems like the passenger is a little demanding. There are many variables that affect travel time on the road - there could have been traffic, the driver might also have been some distance away and hence required more time to reach. In such a situation, the best solution is to just wait - if you cancel this ride and book another, chances are he won't reach by 3.15 also mah.
Understandably, GrabHitch is a carpooling service, where drivers who are going the same way, offers to pick up passengers for a small sum. As such, it is kind of an unwritten rule that one shouldn't expect to receive five-star chauffeur service.
I think the most important takeaway from this incident is that communication is key.
The driver could have replied nicely, and the passenger should have been more understanding and the whole thing wouldn't have been an issue.
And hor, I also don't have an aeroplane, but I still can reach work (quite) on time leh.
