So I posted about my NDP tickets some time back - requesting for a swap with anyone (for other dates) as I could not make it down for Preview 1.
Within a day, my inbox was bombarded.
Not from people who wanted to swap with me, but from many who were requesting me to SELL my tickets to them.
Some were even blunt enough to ask me to give them the tickets - in a rude manner.
(Like hello??! I don't even know you and what makes you think I am OBLIGATED to give them to you?)
I was infuriated. Like seriously.
Yes, I know how I could make a quick buck out of the sale of the tickets. I mean, I got them for free and now there are people offering me huge amount of money for them.
I must be stupid enough to reject the opportunity, right?
AND YES - SO BE IT. I AM REJECTING YOU ALL.
EVEN IF I AM IN NEED OF MONEY AND POOR AF.
Firstly, it is MORALLY wrong for me to sell the tickets. (For those gold diggers who are selling them, shame on you!)
I have been balloting for years myself and I totally understand the feeling of not being able to get them year after year.
Like myself, there are MANY people out there who are sincerely hoping to get a successful ballot so that we can all experience the live atmosphere for once at the NDP.
Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to get a successful ballot and it is heartbreaking when gold diggers are the ones who got them.
To you, it may be a money opportunity but to others, it may be a once-in-a-lifetime chance that they have been wishing for.
It is saddening that some Singaporeans fail to see the intention behind NDP.
I mean, you got them for free in the first place AND in any case that you are unable to attend, I am sure there will be someone that you can give them away to.
It's a pity that the system is not able to differentiate sincere Singaporeans from gold diggers.
Although it is something beyond my control, I thought I could do a little something for you guys who are sincerely hoping to get the tickets...
YES, I WILL BE GIVING THEM AWAY TO ONE LUCKY READER.
