Just last month, I was at Changi Airport boarding gates waiting for my friend's flight to Japan. Then came this announcement with a female voice:
"Passenger boarding Flight SQxxx from seat x to seat y, kindly get on the plane."
Well I didn't actually take note of anything unusual until this ang mo fella went over to the counter and tell the staff.
"Excuse me. Who was the lady who made the announcement?"
A timid looking lady owned up.
The ang mo continued, "Why did you say get ON the plane?!? Shouldn't it be get IN the plane? I wouldn't want to take a flight if they strap me on top of the plane and take off with me holding on for dear life!!!"
Yep, life's amusement.
