Because complaining about the breakdown is too mainstream
So, yesterday (7 July) we experienced the worst MRT breakdown in history.
A shut down of power plagued ALL North South and East West Line commuters which, in my terms, means about 250,000 moody after-work faces became even moodier after-work faces.
That’s a lot of people.
The 250,000 valiant, brave souls of 7/7 had to endure this (when SMRT started offering free bus rides):
Things also got a little romantic in the cabins:
So lots of shits were given:
Poor guy must have thought he could get back home in time to take his usual Tuesday evening post-work/school shit.
But since the trains are back to normal now (and you’re back in school/work wishing they weren’t), here’s when we want you to join us in remembering 7/7, before it’s somehow transformed into propaganda by your social studies textbook.
15 posts that should actually be in your social studies textbook

Fear not, just dig into the Internet’s drawer of overused jokes and pull #SG50 out of it.

What’s the Internet without a sprinkle of ‘RT IF THIS RESTORED YOUR FAITH IN HUMANITY’?
Don’t angry anymore kay guise?
Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew has said sorry.
SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek has said sorry.
Even workers who don’t have to say sorry have said it a 100 times to those who went full on rage mode last night.
Let’s all come together in a warm, group hug, sing hymns and meditate:
For we survived 7/7 together.
