This is probably the kind of first-world happy-ending stories you’ll get in Singapore.

Man shames another man. Internet shames man who tried to shame man. BAM. Happily ever after.

And so, on this fine Monday afternoon, we have yet another story like this to share with everybody.

After all, everyone needs a pick-me-up on Mondays, right?

Here we go.

Man Puts Bag On MRT Seat

So, what do you think happens when a man placed his bag on the MRT seat meant for paying commuters to rest their legs?

This happens, of course.

Yes, that’s how it works in Singapore now. Snap a picture, send it online and shame the individual you disapprove of.

Instead of going up to him and asking him to put down his bag.

And it seems I’m not the only one to think that.

Because Man Faced Backlash Instead

PMD ban in Singapore is like Internet ban? Why? Watch this and you'll understand: (Also remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel!)

But that’s not the main gripe netizens have with this “good samaritan”.

Instead, they don’t get the purpose of the picture.

The train’s empty, dude.

Some pointed out that the man is already seated.

And accused him of doing something like this to get more “likes”.

And that, my dear friends, is the story of man online shamed for trying to shame another man online.

What a good story, isn’t it?

Okay, Moving On

We’re speaking about trains. And my boss’s pretty insistent on giving some useful information alongside these stories.

So here’s one for you.

Early closure of five stations along the North-East Line (NEL) this July.

According to SBS Transit Facebook page, five stations, from Kovan to Punggol, will close earlier for maintenance works.

The stations will close at around 11 pm on all Fridays and Saturdays in July 2019.

You can check the exact timing of the stations’ closure here.

The other stations, who are not closing early, will be affected too.

SBS Transit has warned that the train frequency will continue to operate but at longer intervals of about nine minutes.

There’ll be a bus shuttle service 21 which will operate on a frequency of 1 to 5 minutes. This particular bus service will stop at bus stops or bus interchanges near affected stations.

The bus fares will be adjusted to what you’ll pay if the train is operating.
