Travelling in Singapore has never been this easy what with various carpooling apps at our disposal, such as Grab and Uber.
The former has been my saving grace; the GrabHitch feature allows me to make my commute to Bukit Batok bearable and not to mention, the fare is half of what I would normally pay for a normal cab ride.
For the uninitiated, GrabHitch basically pairs you up with a private car driver that is heading in the same direction as you.
So, there is no guarantee that you will be able to snag a ride but to increase your chances, it is always best to try to make your booking a few hours prior.
If you are looking for a long-term hitch plan, then Singapore Hitch Request—a Facebook community where netizens, both drivers and riders come together to look for a more permanent set-up—would be your best bet.
So, it is pretty normal to see posts like these:
But there was one post that garnered quite a bit of attraction.
A netizen had a very special request albeit innocent. He wanted to get a lift to his graduation ceremony which is on Thursday.
Sounds like any other aforementioned posts, right?
Here comes his special request, he wants a continent car to pick him up and he was even nice enough to include the car brands.
They were BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus and Jaguar.
Here is the post in question:
Netizens being netizens, the poor chap got flamed/burned/roasted.
But hey, his parents approved his request, so I don’t get why people are so bothered.
Despite the rude comments, this chap was well-mannered.
He even took in unwarranted advices!
Some defended his innocent request.
While his request might be special, there isn’t anything wrong with it.
So what if he wants a continental car to drive him to his graduation?
I mean, think about it this way.
Wouldn’t you want to go somewhere fancy for your birthday?
If someone can feel self-entitled on their birthday, I don’t see why the said chap can’t request a continental car for his graduation.
Coz’ he studied hard to graduate unlike birthdays—everyone has them.
