A woman was caught with a sweet in her mouth while riding on the MRT. She explained to the station master, Mr Roger Foo, that she felt giddy and thirsty but since drinking was disallowed, she took a sweet instead.

Mr Foo was insistent that it was against the law to eat on the train, even if it was just a sweet – and he promptly proceeded to fine her S$30.

What’re your thoughts on this incident? Was Mr Foo blindly following the letter of the law instead of understanding the spirit of it?
