The undergraduate who wants to join the Singapore Civil Defence Force after university, has broken up with his girlfriend who confessed anonymously that she thinks the vocation is “low class”.
Previously on University Drama: NTU Confessions edition, a undergrad confessed anonymously she is ashamed of her boyfriend who wants to sign on with the SCDF as a regular.
Assuming an actual undergrad wrote the post and it was not just some troll doing it for the laughs, she went on to say that her parents commented that the SCDF was a “dirty-hands job” done by “certain people only”.
If that wasn’t enough, she also worried that an SCDF regular wouldn’t be able to earn enough to pay for a “posh wedding.”
The reactions were passionate.
The couple even received advice from Ambassador-at-large Bilahari Kausikan. You can see his Facebook post below:
But wait there’s more
However, there was a twist in the tale.
Someone else posted a response to the girl with the dilemma, and brace yourself, he claims to be the boyfriend who wanted to join the SCDF.
Again, assuming this guy really is her boyfriend and not some troll with way too much time on his hands, you can see the post below:
In case you can’t see it, the text reads as follows:
“I am the guy in question from this confession #NTUConfessions22475. I know we had disagreements about my career path. But I never knew till today that you though of my career as a “low class job”
I never knew that saving people is a low class job
I never knew my actions to determine life or death is low class
I never knew that getting my hands dirty is low class
I am shocked my your immaturity. I know your parents already do not like me because they are considered “elites”
I am disgusted by your words, and the comments on the posts are right, I should end the relationship
Enjoy your ivory tower you pampered princess. I hope you do not suffer the fate of Prince Joffrey from GOT because he is exactly like you. Spoilt, full of hate and everything has to go your way.
I can’t even wear my SCDF singlet IN MY OWN HOUSE AND YOU HAD THE AUDACITY TO THROW IT ALL AWAY? Christ sake, I really hope i don’t have to meet you in your time of need.
Goodbye, it was nice at the start but it got very heavy quickly. I’m surprised it lasted 2 years”
If this is true, there’s a newly single, future SCDF regular walking around NTU campus right now, with a bright future ahead of him. And as a bonus, he appears to be a fan of Game of Thrones.
All the best to him and anyone else thinking of joining the Home Team.
