Fancy a meal at KoPEEtiam?

16 April 2022 is (un)officially an important day to remember. That’s because it was the day I chanced upon a questionable pee-related post on ‘COMPLAINT SINGAPORE’— a Facebook group, around since 2017, made for disgruntled folks to air their frustrations.

The post was an image of a young boy taking a piss into what seems like a plastic water bottle held by an elderly woman in a food court, posted by a Facebook user, Liz Lun. It’s uncertain how the original poster managed to get a close-up shot of the disturbing occurrence, but it does get you thinking about it, right?

Upon scrolling through the comment section of the post (like the kaypoh that I am), I realised there was a mix of reactions— some were all for it and some were not.

Many speculations were also added into the mix where Facebook users empathised with the elderly woman. One Facebook user, Zam Cima Calidad, also shared that the child may require special needs, hence, the situation.

However, there were also a couple of Facebook users who shared solutions to avoid the same thing from reoccurring.

Additionally, there were also a handful of pissed off Facebook users who commented on the lack of manners and how it was socially unacceptable to do such a thing in the open, especially at a place where people go to eat.

Personally, it all boils down to upholding a certain level of decorum in public as it’s a shared space. And it’s up to us to practise social responsibility at all times.
