When you wrote
'But I know nobody here would do that, they'd all stare and mutter under their breath and judge but would never risk a confrontation by actually addressing the issue. I think people here also like the feeling of being superior to someone else (part of being kiasu?) so they're on the lookout for stuff like this'.
In saying 'here', I thought you meant on the forum, or in the expat community. Apologies my mistake!
I would agree most SGns don't seem to initiate action at the risk of precipitating conflict. You could argue this reluctance is part of the problem.
