A woman was caught on video shouting and scolding her helper to flag a taxi down at Farrer Road MRT Station at 6.30pm yesterday (Oct 11).
Stomp contributor M captured the video of the incident, subtitled it and sent it to Stomp.
When we reached out to M, she said: "I was waiting for my ride home when I heard the woman yelling at her helper.
"They were at the taxi stand before me, so I'm not sure how long they had been waiting for a taxi."
In the video, it appears to be drizzling.
The video started with the employer, in a pink top and pink shorts, shouting at her helper: "The wind is blowing. If not, I don't need you to do, ok?"
The helper tries to flag a cab down when her employer said: "I hate it when you argue with me. Just do what I tell you to do."
After struggling to get a cab, the employer said: "Sibei suay si" which translates to 'very unlucky' in English.
"Normally got taxi one, but today no taxi," she adds.
The employer seems to see a taxi and tells her maid to flag it down.
"Coming already one! Can you put your hand out? The green one. Oh my God," she exclaims.
The helper looks at her employer before putting her hand out, managing to flag down a red Trans-Cab taxi.
They ask the driver if he can take them to Hougang but he declines and drives away.
At that point in the video, the helper looks at her employer and appears to say something.
Her employer then replied: "You don't ask me so much. You just put your hand out for a taxi can or not? Before I throw you here, ok?"
The pair eventually manage to get on a yellow ComfortDelgro taxi.
M added: "I was shocked when the woman started yelling at her maid.
"It seems that the maid was unable to differentiate between cars and taxis on the road so she was unsure when to flag for the taxi."
