Shop assistants (when you can find them) who know NOTHING about the product they're selling.

A well built bald headed Brit. The MiL used to cringe when I first started doing it but now she thinks it's great. I was however told that using the tissue left to clean the table was taking it a little to far!

Hi, I've been in SG for over 10 years and this my first time posting. I just couldn't resist this topic.

1) Restaurants (true story happened at a particular S*****r branch)
@ 9:15pm
Customer: Until what time are you open?
Waitress: Closing at 10pm. Last order is at 9:30pm.
Customer: Is that enough time for you to take my order and deliver it?
Waitress: Yes, should be enough.
Customer: Ok, then I'll have this please...
@ 9:45pm
Waitress: Here's your steak. The counter is closing. Could you settle the bill now?
Customer: Ok, fine.
@ 10:00pm
Waitress: I'm sorry, we are closing. Could you hurry and go?
Customer: Huh?

2) Taxi drivers
Local driver (from the airport): Where to?
Foreigner: Amara hotel, please.
Local driver: How do you want to go there?
Foreigner: :o

3) Real estate agents - Don't get me started :???:
"There's no lift... there's a lift, it's a condo, what?"
"Cannot view today, owner is overseas. View tomorrow, talk to main tenant... no, owner still not here tomorrow... overseas!"
"Ya, what are your requirements... hmmm, uhuh, ok. I look around for you, hor?"

4) Film is pronounced as "f-i-l-m"... not "f-l-e-m" got that?

5) Yep, deodorants were not commonly found until about five years ago. No, they've never heard of antiperspirant either.

Definitely agree with this one, very annoying when you see a price list but then the bill comes and you have the extra 7% GST on top, why not just include it in the main price list in the first place like most other places in the world?
