A Car Mechanic earns more than a Bank Teller

In a world where we judge and most of the time treat people differently because of a person’s income.

We overlook a man because of his dirty clothes, but give a special seat to a man who appears rich. Even parents are guilty of unconsciously mistreating a son with lower income than a daughter who earns thousands of dollars a month.

I am writing this not because I’m “holier than you”, but yes I am more aware of this judging behavior than most people, but sometimes I miss and guilty of this.

We often have a perception that car mechanics are poorer than us, because they look poor on their dirty clothes.

But last week, I happened to converse with a car mechanic, he said it with pride that his wife and kids look like wealthier than him because of his job. He said car mechanics actually earn P20,000 and up a month. I didn’t let my surprise too obvious because he just shattered my stereotyping mind.

He told me, tinkering car engines has been his passion since he was a boy.

Irony of Respecting the Other Country's Laws, but Hate our Own

I posted a news article about a Muslim woman being punished for adultery by stoning to death, and I criticized it.

Then a friend said, “It’s their law, we just have to respect it.”

I find it really ironic when some people will say “it’s their law, just respect it”, but shout to the heavens and make fun of some laws here in our own country.


This Woman Replied to Me because of Money


Sorry if the title of this blogpost sounds lousy, I could not think of anything catchy.

Anyway, I’m just letting out my frustration about a friend of mine who was unresponsive to my texts and messages on Facebook.

It was completely different months before. My texts to her usually gets a reply seconds later. Even my simple message on Facebook usually gets a response from her.

We knew each other for about two years already. I have to be honest, yes I was attracted to her, and was hoping the friendship would lead to something romantic. 😉

The sad part, okay not sure if “sad” is the correct word. She has a boyfriend, currently working abroad. This could be the reason why she no longer want to reply to my texts and Facebook messages.

I was frustrated really, even a simple question such as “Are you still in Iligan?”.

So I thought of testing her.

I told her that there’s money for her about P2,000. And you know what? She replied to my message on Facebook, without even replying specifically to me previous inquiry, and was very friendly.

Wow, the sudden change. 😀

Pikon Ka?

Pikon ka?

Are you the type of Pinoy that quickly demand apologies from somebody that belittles the Philippines or the Filipinos, then this video is for you.

Frankly, this video is not for me, dili ko pikon or balat sibuyas.

Filipinos are so ironic. They love to make racist jokes on black people, but could not stomach light jokes.

Bisaya Pala Ha!

People in the big cities such as Manila and Cebu have a notion that they are the center of correct pronunciations. But Manilans are the most ironically notorious.

Metro Manila being the capital of the Philippines, and the most advanced in the finances. For so many years they have made fun of people’s accent and pronunciations from the provinces, the Bisayans the most constant butt of jokes.

Manilans’ superiority complex overlooked their own shortcomings. So I made an article many years ago to expose and correct their poor pronunciations.
