Riding in Lifts causes Elevator Anxiety in Singapore

There is a well-known saying in the UK… you know you’ve become a Londoner when waiting more than 2 minutes for a tube is frustrating. While Londoners love to complain about the tube (signal failure on Metropolitan, District, Central and Circle lines, otherwise good service on ALL OTHER underground lines), how do you know when you’ve become a Singaporean? After several years of living here, I would like to propose the following: you know you’ve become a Singaporean when getting an elevator to yourself is the highlight of your day.
