An "old" woman raised hell and fury over a priority seat on a Singapore subway train.
Huina, a 20-year-old retail assistant, was on a train heading towards Pasir Ris last Monday (Jun 18) at about 6.30pm. She had given up the priority seat she had been occupying to an older woman, who then insulted her: "So displeasing. Most probably you're from China. Ask you for the seat, keep on staring for how many hours? So rude."
Huina initially ignored the woman, also partially because she was using earphones and could not hear the woman. Only after seeing the woman's hand gestures and finger pointing did she remove the earphones. The video had been taken by fellow commuter Muhammad Khair, 21, and ended with a heated argument with the two women exchanging profanities. The young woman avoided further conflict by moving to another cabin.
According to a report in a local newspapaer, The New Paper, netizens have praised Huina for facing up to the "priority seat auntie", posting their support on her facebook wall with comments like, "You are Singapore's pride. Awesome girl!" and "You are my super idol".
After watching the video, anybody could imagine the nightmare if he happened to encounter such a quarrelsome trouble-maker. The "old" woman does not look very old. She is most probably in her fifties. She did not even care to say a word of thank to the person who gave up the seat to her but picked a quarrel instead.
