I mean.. is it really that difficult to say;

"Excuse me, could you tap your EZ link card for verification please? No value will be deducted."

Having said that, using vulgarity is not a strict No-No either.

if the bus captain said that to me, i will be like, "OMFG am I in singapore?"

and most bus captains in sg are uncles that are not very highly educated, hence the way they express themselves might also seem offending to you. But once again i have to emphasize that as passengers and customers we have part to play if we want good service

I agree with you that perhaps the bus driver could have explained better but then again, it's TS's side of the story. You probably know how one-sided it is, given the 'piss-ness' TS is suffering from.
You missed out the "then he said , just take out". As a paying customer, I also have the right to know the service provider's intention, especially when it comes to monetary matter.

Exactly. Which is why I would suggest against any prejudice on either party.

In the past, when students paid with coins, they will still need to flash their concessionary cards to verify their identity.

My bad, Phil. I'm not prejudiced, but trying to get TS to understand that he's making a mountain out of a molehill.

One more point TS didn't mention was whether he was in his school uniform or not. That will probably explain more when TS gives us his answer.

ur ezlink can go negative value 1 u noe... anyway... if they want to verify even after u put the money in, just tap, then they will cancel it for u..
I will not procrastinate, I will start tomorrow!

Whatever floats your boat... It takes two hands to clap.

Then obviously you have not encountered the super courteous TIB bus driver. My jaw dropped the day he said;

"Hello. Good morning, thank you for riding with TIBS and have a nice day"

to each and every boarding passenger.

Bus no. 169.

There's a reason why we avoid SLS Ah Beng, remember? Not educated is not an excuse for being rude. All you need is a smile. Here's another version he could put it.

"Xiao Di. Tap card ok? Check only"

169 ftw! Hehs.
Anyway. Whatever bus you take..
You alight bus, tap card. Within 30 mins tap another, be it mrt or what, the money will keep on going negative.
Even if your card got negative value after you alight the bus, within 30 mins you enter bus or mrt, you still can go in.
I tried and tested. It's proven that it works.

Hahahahs. Boyfriend told me that. I tried when I wanted to go and get my clothes from my seller. My card left with 55c at that time. Once i leave mrt station, I'm left with 5c. So, with the 5c in my card, I took a bus to my seller's place, take a bus back mrt station, take mrt to find my sister who is waiting for me, and back home. When I finally reach my destination, I then top up. At that point was going -$1 liao.
