It seems almost inevitably that when waiting in a line, someone will often attempt to ever so rudely and blatantly cut right to the front of the line. And 99% of the time it’s a female.
Have you ever been at the entrance of SM when there’s plenty of people entering? Is it my imagination, or do I get the impression that the females make an extra effort to bypass the line of people rudely and ignorantly shoving their way into the front of the line from the side? It’s like watching grown adults behaving like ill-mannered 5 year old children.
I was traveling by land/sea one time, and there was a crowd of people waiting to board the ferry. When they finally allowed entry, we had to pass through a small doorway through which there was a metal detector. I was completely shocked at the absolute measure of complete uncivilized behavior by these people of all ages and sizes. I was hesitant to even view them as people in that moment, but rather a crowd of hungry wild animals. They did not form an orderly line at all. It was more like trying to force grains of rice through a narrow funnel. It was shocking. I have seen more civilized and orderly behavior when observing a colony of ants, honestly. I’ve seen a crowd of 5 year olds behave more orderly and civilized!
I was squeezed in the middle, being pushed and shoved as I watched the crowd of people of all ages and walks of life (dare I say people?) feverishly try to shove their way to the front like a bunch of selfish 4 year old children with mindless discourtesy, and uncivilized aggression. UNBELIEVABLE!!
I shoved my way out of the crowd for fear I would be smothered to death and just patiently waited for the pathetic idiots behaving worse than wild animals to finish shoving and squeezing their way through the door.
I still got on the ferry, I still got a comfortable seat and there was plenty more empty seats, and I was the last one on the boat. And the boat didn’t leave for another hour afterwards. What was the hurry? What was the panick? What was the rush? What was the reason for them to act SO INCREDIBLY INHUMAN AND UNDIGNIFIED??? It really blows my mind.
But I got on the boat in a humanly dignified, respectful, courteous, and CIVIL manner.
I always take a taxi where ever I go, and that means waiting in line at taxi stands. I just don’t understand the absolute rudeness and mind-numbing ignorance when I often see women walk right past the line and attempt to get the next taxi as if they think they are somehow better than us lowly kababayan waiting in line. Maybe they think they are royalty? Nah, they’re just fucking stupid, rude, and unbelievably ignorant. But I always laugh my ass off (really, and I laugh loudly so they can hear me) when the taxi stand director stops them and sends them to the end of the line just like a kindergarten teacher does with their misbehaving students. At least it saves me from scolding them (which I will do if there is no attendant, and I won’t be very nice about it).
I will always give way to the handicapped and elderly. I think that is how we should care for them as a community. But when I see totally able-bodied people who think their shit doesn’t stink trying to cut in line, I speak up and tell them to open their fucking eyes and find the back of the line. My time is just as valuable as theirs. Common courtesy and civility is not difficult to figure out. So add this to the list of evidence that Filipinos are NOT caring and loving people as seems they all claim to be. It’s just empty words and false claims which so easily come flowing out of their mouths. It’s another evidence of the illusions Filipinos give about themselves as a nation of people. Caring and loving people consider each other. Caring and loving people exercise at least a measurable level of common courtesy, consideration for others, civility and order as they go about their daily lives. But the moment I walk out of my house, all I see is filth, rudeness, discourtesy, disorder, unnecessary safety risks, absolutely no cooperation or courtesy in traffic, and the list can go on and on.
I walk out of my house, and I enter a world of behavior which can best be described as a land full of 5 year old children who have not yet learned to be courteous, considerate, patient, and caring. I see a nation of mindlessness and ignorance and irresponsibility and blame blame blame. I see and experience people who criticize each other for the exact same thing that they do themselves. It seems like everyone feels they are justified and have a good reason to lie, cheat, steal, or drag their fellow countryman down when they see them begin to succeed or gain. And nobody will take personal responsibility for their own actions or behavior.
And that’s what keeps you idiots stuck in the pit of corruption, poverty, and no progress. It’s not your corrupt government. It is the general mindset of the nation and the way you people think and act and see yourselves individually. Nobody thinks they themselves are corrupt because they feel they have good reason to be dishonest and corrupt, so they don’t view themselves as corrupt. They only see the corruption OUTSIDE of themselves while they view themselves as justified. And if they are found to be corrupt, it’s always someone else’s fault. There’s always someone else to blame. There is no personal responsibility or dignity. So you cannot possibly have a government that is not corrupt if the only people available to be elected into government are, by their very nature, corrupt.
Stop blaming your government. YOU elected them. BLAME YOURSELVES. YOU ARE A DEMOCRACY, YOU ARE SELF GOVERNING. Try ACTUALLY BECOMING CARING AND LOVING, instead of just pushing that stinky false claim out of your mouth like you push a fart out of your ass.
REMEMBER: ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN YOUR WORDS. If your behavior and actions do not match what you say, then you are just a hot stinky puff of methane gas being pushed out of an ass hole.
If you want the world to believe that you are “caring and loving people”………SHOW IT TO THE WORLD THROUGH YOUR ACTIONS AND BEHAVIOR, DON’T JUST BLOW MEANINGLESS, EMPTY PROCLAMATIONS FROM YOUR MOUTH. Because the world is not HEARING what you say. The world is WATCHING WHAT YOU DO. This blog is truthful and an accurate representation of what the world SEES about your country. When are you going to learn this?
Your lives could be IMMENSELY IMPROVED with little or no expense if only you would just change your minds a little. It’s truly sad.Published in
