They are just SO Singaporean!
13 April 2016
A video of a Malaysian man berating a couple for parking their car in a handicap lot has divided netizens from both sides of the Causeway.
Three videos of the incident, posted on Facebook group “Champion4disability” by Mr Naren Narasiah on Monday (April 11), have since gone viral.
The first video he posted has been shared more than 9,000 times.
Mr Naren said in his Facebook post that although he was not going to publish the videos of the incident, which took place last year, he thought “it is time I did”.
“This was an incident where I went gangster on a Singaporean couple who parked on a handicapped parking lot and tried to worm their way out with dumb excuses,” he said.
He relates how he “deliberately blocked their car”, then waited for them for 45 minutes.
After the Singaporean couple returned to the car, they reversed it out of the lot, knocking into Mr Naren’s truck.
“That kind of added fuel to my fire,” he said, adding that he had finished a long day of work, and was feeling irritable.
“Very tired and extremely irritable I wanted them to feel what it was like having to wait just like how a disabled person would have felt.”
In the videos, Mr Naren is seen confronting the couple. They apologised to Mr Naren repeatedly, and the woman said they did not see the signboard indicating that the lot they were parked in was reserved for the handicapped.
“Rubbish! So big there you cannot see the signboard ah?!” Mr Naren exclaimed.
