PUSH! THE WAY OF THE PINOY CULTURE!!

Apr 4 | By Joekano | Views: 656 | Comments: 34

If you have been here for any length of time you will have invariably noticed how it dominates their way of life. In almost every aspect of their life there is some kind of push, pressure, hurry, get there fast, I’m first, it’s my road! Some things are quite subtle and I’ll start with those less obvious but so annoying habits.

 

Christmas.

It’s September and I'm sitting outside SM having a beer. I listen to the music and it’s “I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas”, “Jingle Bells”, “Let It Snow”. And I’m thinking of a white Christmas wtf? It’s September???? But oh yes Christmas is coming! Ya four fucking months from now! Push! It happens with all the holidays, of which there are an endless number which gives all of them a chance to line up, traffic jams, hurry, get there fast, buy, PUSH.

 

Mangoes.

You probably didn’t know this but mangoes are sprayed with a hormone to make them flower so that they produce more fruit, PUSH. The crazy thing is once they have been sprayed they will never again flower naturally hence they have to keep spraying. This then needs an array of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and an array of other suicide squad chemicals guaranteed to fuck up the environment and shorten everybody’s lives, especially if you live next to an orchard as I do. It’s also incredibly labor intensive requiring crews of underpaid lackies to spray and put paper on and pick. Really can’t believe how they make any money? PUSH.

 

Line Ups.

This one you must have noticed? I’m standing at the PO waiting for the person in front to finish and feeling uneasy as instead of lining up behind me as civilized people do, there are people appearing beside me and even ahead of me? PUSH! The same when I walking toward a door or stairs people pushing in front of me. There are a number of times where I have had to tell them to move back, even fuck off. It’s really frustrating, but built in to the mentality.

 

Door Entrances.

Where and when I was growing up I was taught to open the door for others, especially the elderly. Here I tried it a few time and for fucks sake they keep flowing in even push me out of the way. PUSH I’ll never forget the door entrance of an internet café. I did it once and learned my lesson. Now I open the door and walk right through any one who is in my way. The ignorant don’t even notice.

 

Videoke.

You’ve heard it. Full blast and non-stop for hours. It’s not sing a song and take a break, it’s the same person non-stop for sometimes twelve hours, wtf? It’s like take a break you moron. They just go on and on like it’s the last day of their life. Wish it was ahhhhhhhhhhhh. And the volume not low or so they can hear it, it always has to be max so the whole fucking barangay can hear, oh there’s dai singing again isn’t she wonderful? The same goes for TV and radio max vibration volume. Even when they’re talking the music is max so they have to shout over the top of it. Wtf PUSH.

 

Driving.

This is one you all will have experience with no matter where and what you drive.

You’re approaching an intersection of a single lane road. You line up behind the vehicle in front and what you would naturally do is wait for him to go through. Wrong! Suddenly there are assholes coming on all sides making a jammed up mess and chaos. PUSH. No logic or reasoning needed.

Starting to pass. They don’t wait for the fucking oncoming vehicle to pass! The left wheel is over the line and as soon as you get close there out missing you by inches. Drives me crazy! PUSH.

How many times I have had to almost go off the road on my motor bike because the oncoming vehicle is passing right into my face, PUSH.

Honking and flashing lights, which means get out of my way, I’m coming, this is my fucking road. Right my tail, assholes.

They don’t follow the right of way rules, anything goes here, I’m coming mentality, PUSH.

They don’t have a comfort zone cruising speed! It is so much easier to know your comfort zone of speed and how far to stay back right? Wrong, it’s ride that bumper all the way. I take a bus into the city and instead of staying in one lane and following the speed limit it’s swerve from lane to lane honking and PUSHING but not really getting ahead, just making a jammed up mess, I call it pack driving, it’s so stupid.

 

 

 

Eating.

I often swim at a resort and therefore have time to observe some of their habits. Invariably no matter what time it is, or regardless that they probably just finished a meal, the first thing they always do upon arrival at the resort is out comes the mountains of rice and lechon baboi and emperador and the feast starts. PUSH. The adults continue all day and rarely move except to maybe go stand in the water, none of them swim? Pushing themselves to an early death from obesity and diabetes. Ha land of seven thousand islands and not a swimmer to be seen in these tropical temps.

 

Can you add anything to this list? Phew!

@Mike - About the public toilet photo... There two reasons why a toilet would clog up with toilet paper:

1. NOT PROPERLY PLUMBED. As those with brains know, toilet paper is specifically engineered to be flushable. It is made to disintegrate when it gets wet, and won't clog a toilet that has PROPER PLUMBING.

2. DUMBASS FLIP USES HALF A FUCKING ROLL in a huge wad for each wipe.

It amazes me how many public toilets have that sign asking you to stink the toilet stall up by putting your shitty paper in a bin. That is just fucking disgusting to no end.

What makes them think the toilet can take your 14 to 18 inch long, 2 1/2 inch diameter solid turd, but not toilet paper that disintegrates when wet? This is yet another indicator of their incompetent thought process.

"What's ironic is that they push so hard to get ahead for little stupid shit, but have you ever noticed when they walk leisurely? It's so fucking slow!!! They also walk abreast so no one can pass" (J)

I just hate that when they block the whole exit ramp by walking abreast and ever so Fucking slowly! Then just as you can see a small gap on the left side, enough for you to get through, they drift towards the left blocking that too!!! It's as if a Flip's mission in life is to make your life miserable. Yes, it must be!

Ever tried lining up in Jollibee JoeKano? So many people just push in front and then just stare back at you. For a country that is so poor they sure as hell like Jollibee. I have never seen so many people in a fast food joint as I have in the Phils". (Tuco)

Yes Tuco, I noticed that too. Filipinos don't seem to patronize their native restaurants. They tend to go for western based foods, but then they ruin it by mixing rice with anything! Fried chicken and rice, burgers with rice, kebab with rice!

''Ya where does all the fucking money come from for the Jollibee and mc d?" (Joekano).

I think we can safely guess Joe, it's from the OFW family member, or some smitten Kano sending money to his "honey ko". And don't forget the one day millionaire on paydays! Treat the parasitic friends to a grand lunch to show off, then borrow money from "Ate" to live on till next pay. Or just bludge off from Nanay till next pay. Such is the Flip life. No cares, no responsibilities.

Ya your airplane thing. As soon as the plane lands the cells go on as they have been deprived of facebook for a few hours and ya they are walking out the ramp they'll stop to check their cell blocking everybody. And they have to walk three or four abreast to block everybody. If they are walking towards me doing that I make sure they hit my shoulder or just walk right through them.Ya your airplane thing.

Tuco, ​in​ May 2016​ the Philippines census ​reported​ that there are 2.4 million OFW workers across the globe​.​ ​Those are​ just the registered ones​. ​ ​W​e do not know how many ​OFW ​illegals there are all over the world​.​ ​ In Japan alone, the unofficial figure was listed as 500,000. Would be interesting to see the figures in the ​​​USA. ​T​hen there are the ​Filipino migränts who have taken citizenships ​ from the​ir​ adaptive ​countries. Some of these Filipinos are supporting several siblings/nephews/nieces. Our former Nanny (mentioned in another post) who was committed to sending $500 a month to her family in the Philippines once complained to Mum that her niece was very generous towards her friends every time she received her allowance money from "Tita from Australia". When she said that her niece was generous, turned out that the niece would spend half of her allowance treating her friends to expensive lunches and dinners. Good living if you can get it, especially if you did not have to work for it!! But did Nanny cut off the allowance? I am not sure. But I am guessing she did not.

Then there are the foreign boyfriends. Don't forget some of these girls/men (ladyboys and baklas) are stringing several men along, to send them money. And then of course we have as mentioned earlier​, ​ the one day millionaire​s, these are the working Flips who spends their money to show off. How many of you have observed a Kano with an entourage of 15 or more people in a restaurant? You can guess who's paying, right? Really interesting actually, watching these poor Kanos and OFWs and balikbayans at a restaurant. Kanos usually looked lost and uncomfortable. OFWs and Balikbayans looked cheerful, relaxed. Why would she not feel happy? She's Queen for the day, being served by everyone. Don't worry about the budget, I will ask "honey ko" to wire me some more holiday money tomorrow. :)


​Some of the Flips would go inside a restaurant and only order a halo-halo or cold drinks. Perhaps to take advantage of the airconditioning? I've seen Flips literally dig down for the last centavo from their wallets. Made me wonder if they walked home after the food court lunch.
