Hey everyone!

Would anybody like to share an unpleasant experience that happened to you in your country of residence?

Getting points to enable PM? Otherwise it is the same as saying: people, lets talk about anything.

One time, I slammed my finger in a car door in the UK.

Is that the kind of thing you were looking for?

I have a couple of bad ones

1) taxi driver seemed to press a button and my meter fare increased when I got a taxi in Shenton way, 6 pm on weekday

2) MacDonalds didn't give me chilli sauce for the nuggets I ordered ... horrible service

OP is spamming numerous expat forums all over the internet. Do a search for his handle plus the generic sentence s/he uses.

I was given less crispy nuggets when I asked for extra crispy specifically because I'm Ang Moh. I was so angry I just walked out in disgust without eating.

Malaysian Auntie in hawker stall spoke to me in Bahasa Melayu and when I didn't reply in the same language, she chided me for not saying right away I was not Malay. And worse, she was out of rendang which I always buy from her stall. I was aghast!

I once went to a hairdressers and they didn't cut my hair how I wanted it. I still had to pay. Horrible experience.

I was at Legoland a while back and saw this expat couple kissing.

I told them to build a room.
