Is there some kind of ‘greatest hits’ competition going on at the moment?

If there is, please let me know.

How else would you explain the colossal number of articles and news with the word ‘youth’ in it?

By that I don’t mean the kind that celebrates contributions to society or Janine Shun’s outstanding achievement.

If you haven’t read this poem, please do so.

By articles, I mean this kind.

“ANOTHER YOUTH SOUGHT ATTENTION BY JUMPING ON ROAD & SHOWING HIS BACK”

“S’PORE YOUTHS FILMED THROWING THEMSELVES OFF PUNGGOL BRIDGE; SPARKS OFF DEBATE ABOUT S’PORE”

“S’PORE YOUTH SMOKED ON BUS, SAID HE CAN PAY THE FINE & THAT IT WAS A ‘DARE’”

Also FYI, all these articles are only available in our Good Feed App, other than just plain ol’ news, you will also find lobangs for discounts, food reviews and travel and lifestyle tips.

Do yourself a favour and download lah.

Sorry, I digressed.

Do you have a friend who’s always smiling? Watch this video and you’ll know why he or she is always so happy:

A series of unfortunate youths and trolley

In what is yet another spate of events not unlike the food poisoning trend, trolley now appears to be the next newsworthy IN thing, along with youths.

Unless of course you happen to be NTUC.

This thing made from gold or look like GameBoy is it? Why must steal or play with it?

In the first of two trolley news yesterday, it was reported that someone, or a group, stole all the trolleys in Holland Drive’s NTUC Fairprice.

In the second incident, a bunch of brats, nincompoops, devils, youths were seen setting fire to an NTUC trolley on a series of Instagram Stories, according to this STOMP article.

Sniper-eyed STOMP reader Judy complied the videos which you can view here:

In what appears to be a birthday gathering chock-full with cigarettes, self-entitlement, beers, smokey-BBQ goodness and informative “ur bday got firework” caption, a youth is seen leaning nonchalantly on the NTUC trolley while its lock melts onto the floor.

Because why not? +5 points to steet cred.

Clearly irked by their actions, Judy lamented that “these young punks burnt a trolley and claimed that it is their “fireworks” and “were proud to even post this on social media.”

Th History of NTUC and their Trolleys

Well, trolley it appears, can somewhat be considered the bane of NTUC’s existence.

In 2015 alone, the supermarket chain lost about 1, 000 trolleys which was in itself an increase of 20% from 2010.

To this tune of trolley-trouble, NTUC spends over S$150,000 every year on repairing, replacing and retrieving un-returned trolleys and even launched a Trolley Enforcement Project in 2016 to tackle the of issue of missing trolleys.

There’s even a “Report Missing Trolley” feature on NTUC’s app and a Facebook group called Stolen NTUC Trolley & OFO Bicycle dedicated to “stop people from stealing trolley by creating awareness” according to their “About” page.

If something is app-integrated you know its aptly important.

Seeing as to how one trolley costs about $130-$150, NTUC FairPrice, suffice to say, wouldn’t be too happy to see that video.

What about the perpetrators of the Holland Village heist?

Dayum, they must be carting their wares away gleefully to the bank.

Using a trolley to cart a trolley, so Tarantino meta-esque
