Watch where you stick it in Singapore

Singapore is a pretty “plugged-in” kinda place, but watch where you stick your charger when you’re on the go.

Asia One reported a recent court decision for a girl who was fined $400 SGD (About $313 USD) for using a Mass Rapid Transit electrical socket to charge her mobile phone at a station outlet that was unlocked.

Public comments have been mixed. Some people believe she was truly stealing electricty from the MRT, and others believe the fine was harsh and she should have been let off with a warning. All I know, is when I ever go to Singapore, I’m keeping my hands in my pockets (but not too deep, lest someone suspect public lewdness) and I’m not touching ANYTHING.
