As we have seen previously, there are some heinous crimes committed here in the cold land of sin.

Not many of us are left untouched by the ruinous activities of the malcontent locals, heathens . . . the lot of them.

Here is my story.

On a recent visit to the land of Singapore, just a a one-day business visit I was attending a meeting with a rather large brokerage firm . . . notes were made and taken . . .

We broke for lunch . . . and when we arrived back at the office I noticed, much to my horror, that my chair had been moved approximately 8 centimetres . . .

Outrageous! I was outraged, yet kept my cool as these cold-hearted gangster-type Singaporeans, cleverly disguised with tummies and glasses, can be like lizards . . .

So, what should I do?

Thankfully I know I have the full support on grave issues like these from at least one mod; jpatokal, who champions the cause of the little man and the little cause . . . thanks, mate, may all your children be human!

You didn't mention whether you suspect a local or an expat of moving your chair...

Come on, that is so obvious. Look out for the clues in his post! The name of the culprit is actually in there. I highlighted the letters for you. Join them and you will find out the name of the culprit. :lol: The letters are in order.

Pls note the words outrages and jpatokal were already bold in the initial post and should not be considered.

Oh, that is ever so obvious, road.not.taken . . . it has to be the heathen, cold and utterly dastardly locals . . . I mean, whoever steals a piece of suit would not hesitate to move a chair . . .

Goodness, however, will prevail . . .

Littlegreenman . . . nice try at creating a myth . . . but we all know that SMS has gone troppo . . . heck, he even married a local lady . . . cannot be trusted as he quite possibly wears white pyjamas during daylight out in public.

Indeed . . . the medication, however, is to be inserted anally. Thank you for volunteering . . .
