An incident at a train station

Toa Payoh Station

2011 June 10

Around 11.30am

So there I was, waiting for the train.

When it arrived, one teenage girl approached the platform door.

Then I noticed she had left her pink wallet on the bench.
So I called out to her and gestured towards it.

She went back to get it and entered the train.

No "thank you", no expression of gratitude, nothing.
As a matter of fact, she looked as if I had caused her
a colossal inconvenience by making her retrieve her wallet.

Quite an interesting response, don't you think?
