So immediately right after the N95 masks and Hello Kitty frenzy, here's another:
Not surprisingly, Singaporeans are trying to cash in on the NDP tickets - AGAIN.
I believe ANYONE who genuinely and sincerely wants those tickets but was denied the chances to would definitely feel the frustration - like me.
I have read many stories from people of how they have been e-balloting for 10 over years but never once were they given a successful chance to get those tickets. (At least, I still considered myself lucky to be able to get them once. I wasn't aware that it was really that difficult!)
It's disheartening when I read other people posting their disappointment and how they had wanted so much to bring their old parents/grandparents in catching the event at least once in their lifetime.
I mean, they definitely deserve the tickets, don't they?
BUT WHY ON EARTH were tickets given to greedy Singaporeans instead? It seems that no amount of implementations are able to prevent this from happening. All that Singaporeans see in their eyes are nothing but a BIG dollar sign.
Hello, do you know that those tickets are freaking FREE? In other words, you did NOT pay a single cent for them. So why are you exploiting your luck and taking advantage of the fact that you were given those tickets by God's will and selling them at such ridiculous prices?
God, if only there is a law that permits them to be landed in jail for putting those tickets up for sale. I really, really hope something happens to them for such unethical behavior. It just angers me so much.
And damn those people - In order to play around with law and avoid being "illegal", here is what they have came up with:
Selling an item and claiming that they will give the NDP tickets for FREE. In other words, they can tell people they are NOT selling the tickets. Smart,huh?
And those prices they set can make you laugh.
Fancy that - The price for one RUBBER BAND cost you $170?
and a PILOT pen for $120?!?!
Are you freaking kidding me??!
But of course, they will tell you that they would be giving you FREE NDP tickets. Yeah,*FREE* huh.
You are actually paying for the tickets. Those rubber bands and pilot pens are just some decoy rubbish.
People are already starting to sell those tickets everywhere on the website now. To the NDP team, your e-balloting system seriously sucks.
Look carefully- THESE MONEY-MINDED SINGAPOREANS WERE CHOSEN BY YOUR E-BALLOTING SYSTEM.
Genuine, loyal, keen and sincere Singaporeans like me will never, ever get a chance I guess.
Because the world is never fair.
