The Morning MRT Commute: As Explained By Gifs

0

Wake up in the morning, feeling like P-atricia Mok

On a bright sunny morning, Xiao Ming goes to the market.

Except Xiao Ming now works at Raffles Place. And he lives in Jurong East. And the MRT is the only way to get to the office.

To the nameless warriors who spend every morning on the train towards town, we feel you. This is for all of us:

1. You finally get out of bed after hitting the snooze button. Because, what could be better than starting the day with some procrastination.

2. But you get in the shower, convinced that nothing can ruin your day. Not even the transport to work.

11. You look at the board and it says that the next train will arrive in four minutes. You try not to lose it.

12. The do-not-board train arrives. It’s okay, I’ve been cheated on before.

13. And then, the actual train finally arrives and what was an orderly queue turns into a stampede

18. But then something wakes you up. There is a reason why people should not speak in the morning, especially those with morning breath.

20. When the passenger sitting in front of you alights, and you think you finally get a chance to sit. But no. Angry-bird aunty swoops in from god-knows-where.
