A woman went on a long rant after an National Environment Agency (NEA) officer told her not to smoke at the carpark at Northpoint Shopping Centre on a rainy day.
A post on All Singapore Stuff on Aug 30 attributed the following to Facebook user Eileen Cheong:
"Yesterday at Northpoint I about to went for lunch went for a smoke break. it's actually mild rain so I'm standing in the near to the car park box to smoke. In the end met this ridiculous offical. I'm alright if i get the fine at right timing! first of all ARE U BLIND IS MILD RAIN STANDING IN THE HOT SUN WITH MILD RAIN WILL MAKE SOMEONE GOES SICK! DON'T YOU HAVE A BRAIN!" (sic)
Instead of letting the officer enforce the rules, the smoker slammed her, calling her 'ridiculous' as it was drizzling -- hence insisting that she should be allowed to smoke there.
She continued on her rant (unedited):
"Secondly a professional officials shouldn't even point this sentence at all. ( EVEN IF IS RAIN WE HAVE TO STAND UNDER RAIN TO SMOKE what worst EVEN IF BIG RAIN TO THOSE SMOKER OUT THERE WE HAVE TO STAND UNDER THE RAIN TO SMOKE NOT EVEN FIND A SHUTTLE TO HIDE OURSELF)
"SO RIGHT NOW MY QUESTION IS GOVERNMENT OR NEA LACK OF MONEY CAUGHTING PEOPLE AT NOT RIGHT TIMING? I TELL YOU REACH TO RAIN I WILL STAND THERE YOU WANT YOU COME CAUGHT ME IF RAIN EACH TIME!
"THIS MONEY I WILL PAID BUT I WILL TREAT AS I DONATE TO YOUR COFFIN MONEY! LASTLY IF SOME FAMILY OF YOUR IS A SMOKER PLEASE MAKE SURE IF IS RAIN ALSO ENSURE THEM TO STAND UNDER RAIN TO SMOKE/STIKE BY LIGHTNING ALSO HAVE TO STAND THERE IF THEY WANT TO SMOKE! AM I RIGHT TO SAY SHE IS TRYING TO TELL ME SINGAPORE LACK OF MONEY ?
"With ur unprofessional and rude attitude you shouldn't be working in this company! am I right to say your boss is BLIND TO HIRE U! how can a rude officials working in this COMPANY."
Should the NEA officer bend the rules for the smoker just because it's raining? Or should the latter comply just like every else?
