So my wife bought a new fan today, some brand called Mexus which I've never heard of. Anyway, after I assembled the fan, I took a look at the warranty certificate.
There are two things which are uniquely Singaporean about this warranty certificate. And uniquely stupid.
Firstly, it requires you to state your race, before you submit the warranty certificate. Secondly, the options for "race" are Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasion (sic) and ...... "Others".
After all these years, why do we still not realise that for most things in life (including the administration of home-appliance warranty certificates), the person's race is simply irrelevant.
And that in any case, it's not very polite to refer to minority races as "Others".
By the way, Mexus, if you're reading this - I didn't like your product because it didn't come with any instructions on how to assemble it. Even a simple diagram would have been appreciated.
