"No Eating And Drinking"

Sun Mar 31, 2002 9:48 pm

Hi everyone,

The phrase "No eating and drinking" is displayed on Singapore's public trains. Isn't it supposed to be "No eating or drinking"? I think "No eating and drinking" means you can drink but not eat and vice versa but not eat and drink at the same time. We are not supposed to eat or drink onboard the trains so I believe it should be "No eating or drinking".

Would love to hear your comments.

Try it your way, and after the public flogging, let us know how it went.
Cheers
