I will ignore and just clear it. Sometimes even though it's not mine. I will purposely say something insulting if i'm not alone, so the next table will feel it.

Most of the time, it's the greedy bosses's fault. They want to maintain high salaries without bringing growth to the company except by saying "increase our product price lor"

Rising cost??? I have seen too many so called "low income group but holding nicer phones and more-zhenged car" than medium income group. It's all about priorities.

I do the same and depending on mood, I would make a sarcastic remark just loud enough for the culprit to hear as it leaves.

Although sometimes clearing after myself gets me reprimanded by the cleaners, saying we are stealing their job.

No can. After going for $2000 certification training, and when equipped with safety harness. Next time safety harness securing hardpoint will be standard for HDB flat windows and balconies.
