#SMRTmovies: A Reminder To Be Funny, Even When Your Train Is An Hour Late

Yesterday, in yet another ‘track fault’ incident, hordes of commuters waiting to board trains along the East-West line found themselves stranded on train station platforms — during the rush hour.

It was so bad that a friend of mine — who happened to be caught in the massive hold-up — texted me, saying, “I am so late for a course. I cannot even get onto the platform. Not the train ah, the platform.”

But in a curious twist of fate, what happened after that was not the usual flood of complaints that took Twitter by storm. Instead, Singaporeans started tweeting with the hashtag #SMRTmovies, making light of the situation with a selection of puns based on both classic and newer movie titles.

Here are seven of our favourites, complete with images to help you visualise:

1. Because waiting an hour for the train really does feel like a lifetime.

2. Our trains didn’t just break down once, did they?

 3. Go on, blame it on the “track fault”, like we always do.
