Making an old uncle cycling a rickshaw with 3 grown man is NOT bullying

Glad that this incident is reported on the UK Daily Mail.

When a reporter from The New Paper talked to Bo Davis (26) via YouTube about how he and two of his friends had made an old man cycle a rickshaw with three of them on it, and refusing to pay after the ride, this is what he replied...

“This was not bullying, I do not like bullies or bullying.”

This part I guess I could understand. I'm sure this is exactly how Ah Beng would have reacted when coming back from JB and caught at the checkpoint with a bag of pirated DVDs.

"These are not pirated lah, I dun support buy pirated things one."

And of course, he did not expect such strong reaction from Singaporeans when all they did was bullied a Singaporean old man...

“I couldn't believe the comments - I was shocked by the threats. People's reactions were shocking but interesting.”

This is easy to understand too. The British are easily shocked. They were shocked when they had to surrender to the Japanese, they were shocked when China really took Hong Kong back.

This incident is actually a very good example of how some people could behave badly when they are tourists...
  • they have the superior feeling that the country is inferior to their hometown

  • they thought they should be treated as kings by the people from the country because they are spending their superior money there

  • they think that the facilities in the country is backward, and the people in the country are definitely not as smart as them

  • and lastly, they thought that they can do crappy thing in the country because nobody from their hometown will find out


Maybe we should just stick to the Japanese and Korean tourists...

Aye, shocking, ain't it? I wonder if they have weak hearts. Perhaps we should treat them with some TLC.

It is really bad the ang mos din want to pay
(btw, how could 3 ang mos fit into a trishaw? o.O)

But on the point of tourist behaving badly overseas, I guess it is a similar situation everywhere (I'm not saying we are as bad as the ones in this incident) but there are bound to be some ugly Singapore acting funny when they are overseas.
