The Habit Of Laziness

... "Laziness travels so slowly that Poverty soon overtakes him" ...

(Benjamin Frankin)


If good old Benjamin can say that, so can I.

---


I once attended a seminar arranged by the Danish Embassy in Manila for Danish Companies to invest in FlipFlopLand - and to some extend also for those already there.


It was very interesting to hear point of views from those who's been there for both 4, 6 and 10 years, but also extremely interesting to hear the lies from the various stack of FlipFlops how "hard working", "loyal" & "devoted" these maggots living here are.


After the seminar refreshments was served and all started to mingle. I engaged into a discussion about how I see the labor laws, how little control there was with non-registred workers in PhilHealth, the stupid loop holes of 6-month-contracts and so on.

The term "das how we do in Philippines" came up quite often.


Suddenly I felt myself surrounded by a smaller crowd - and not for the nice attention, but for the resilience I was showing towards getting answers which could be used.

The discussion vent into the subject of "hard working Philippine labor army of devoted men and women" (f**k a lie).


I then mention the above quote be famous Benjamin....... and hell broke out.

To be honest.... I was asked to ditch the party by my good friend at the Embassy.

(which I gladly did)


Anyway. All I wanted with this post was to start a discussion about; 1) How to live here full time and coped with the lazy attitude of these maggots, 2) Will it be easier to cope with if one only stayed here 4-5 month a year and then spend the rest of ones retirement under more civilized clouds, 3) What did you actually do towards those you were catching being lazy.

They are even lazy at fucking. Of 20 odd nationalities I've hit it with, maybe 10 ethnicities, Filipinas are the only ones who consistently seem to thing fucking is basically opening their consistently un toned legs. Haa anyone here ever had an energetic fuck from a Filipina? How about for free?They are even lazy at fucking.

Never pay a Pinoy for their time. It's worthless.

@Arcane.... My friend (a relocated here in Denmark), but Filipino, have a very nice and western house in Diwa (just outside Balanga, Bataan). He still works for me, but after 36 years planing to retire, partly here, partly back home. His wife gave him the most beautiful children - of which one is my daughter's assistant (lawyers office). Anyway, this friend of mine showed me how to employ labor. Adjoining to his main plot he holds an 1.800 square meter plot intended to hold a swimming pool, some guest houses (only family and friends). When he cleared the plot for wild trees, bushes and planing the land out, building a concrete wall, he hired some labor, but not from the village. They were hired by "result" only, paid bit by bit - and if not manned up to 3 heads a day, deducted 400 peso per day. Work not done by arranged time, outstanding payment still 39.000 peso. Foreman arrives and demand payments, but shown the highway. Foreman and 4 "not nice looking men" arrives, demand money, same result; the highway still runs out there....! My friend calls the foreman and suggest him a deal; you make sure the work is done - and you dig the hole for the swimming pool out as new work, but will only be paid when ALL work is done, though I give your men a daily allowance of 200 peso, but nothing to you before finish. Work completed in record time - and my friend could start the swimming pool 4 weeks ahead of schedule.@Arcane....

It's tough. I was raised to respect other cultures, but these folks leave no room for that.

Blues, That's what I say. When I ask a filipino not to piss on my wall for example I hear "Why do you hate filipinos?" I simply reply " I don't hate filipinos I just don't have any respect for them because of the way they are."

Flips fall asleep easily, anywhere, anytime.

*Mike: The pissing always make me nervous using the tricker on the short gun. Once the neighbors had a party - and I was alone in the house - someone just appeared inside the yard to piss. Not the first one though, a nice lake of piss was spreading already. I have to get along with the neighbor so I went in there an pin pointed the guy taken a piss. Made them to rinse the yard - and few Pinoy's were not that happy about it. Maybe a bit drunk they were bullshitting some words in Tagalog all the time. I just can't have it. Funny though, the neighbor always piss in at corner of his own back garden. On warm and moist days....you know the smell. Nothing to do about it. I didn't even raise this request for him to stop doing it. Waste of time.*Mike: The pissing always make me nervous using the tricker on the short gun.

I once asked a local cop if I could electrify my fences, and then proposed that if someone were to piss on it and got electrocuted, would there be a problem. He answered "Of course sir, because you will have violated his humanity." Fliipinos....humanity...heh.
