Similar Situation

I got a shock when I saw this - so many people!

No place to even squeeze in

Question Time

If you are coming down the stairs from point A, would you:

X: Squeeze your way to point B to queue

or

Y: Merge slowly into the queue at point C

?

So is it X or Y for you?

This is the same case as the question I asked here before.

  1. Me. Z? I'd gor real early to avoid the crowd at peak hours (when I was teaching, I'd reach the school at 6am...in the dark, just to avoid the cars on the road - we start at 7) or turn around...go and catch a cab or something. I never have any patience to queue...as I'd probably get so angry and have a heart attack and drop dead on the spot when I get so so so angry seeing how people here would do Y or I may end up in a fight even as I would just scold whoever tries to do that. Tsk! Tsk!

    1. Actually this is inside the station and the time is quite early 7 something. No point going to work at 6am when normally the office unlike a school is not open so early.

    1. People don't purposely take the stairs to go C lah.

  3. Those people from B, they all came from A isn't it? I don't see any entrance near B. So I would probably suck it up and go to B to queue. The same, it really depends on whether the situation is a queue or a crowd where many lines of people congregate into one place.

  4. peak hour!! and as I wondered why there's a crowd past 8:30am at the station of my place, I guess from your photo I know "everyone is back to work!!", hahaha!!

    I would merge into C, cos there's even not a single inch and chance I can go to B.. and people are sure pushing and squeezing..

    1. Not really. Same stations never have this congestion. You also pandai, don't walk against the flow.

  6. If that's a LRT station and there are 'formed' queues lining up to scan your ticket, then I'll have to go with X. If it was the previous question where there are no formed queues heading towards the escalator, then it will be Y.

    1. Aiya, why you walk against the flow?

  7. Ooh, if I saw that line I think I'd turn and run the other way. Too many people! Good questions though - I'm enjoying these posts questioning social codes.

    1. This is inside the station so you will board the train again to exit at another less congestion station? :D

  8. First thought, I will turn around and walk away from the crowd. But if I must choose between X & Y, my choice is X as everyone is waiting in line, If I am not mistaken, I can see the people are waiting in line to queue at B. If that's the case, then it is good to choose X.

    1. Actually IMHO Y is the correct thing to do to clear the congestion faster.

  10. scary huge crowd!!! is this norm everyday?
    Anyway, to answer your question, i will choose X, unless i can't even move to B, then no choice to go for Y.

    1. No, not the norm. Really cannot move lah to B lah since you can see from the photo, the B area is fully occupied already.
