A Human Placeholder
I had been meaning to write about this. Two days ago, I was at UOB at Novena Square. I observed a maid in the long queue. I was curious. After half an hour of queuing, it was finally her turn. At that moment, her employer, an auntie in her 50s, who was sitting on a bench nearby (all that time) came and took her place. The little maid had become a human placeholder. I thought this was demeaning.
Do you think this is demeaning? Opinions?
