Just a little bit of everything in this post about little of this and that. I guess it’s a flea market kind of post, never know what your gonna run across.
1.)During my sons birthday party I noticed a furniture store across the hall and went to check it out. Like most stores it was so overstocked there was barely room to fart should you need to without the person beside you feeling the warm air in their pants. So I’m looking around when the owner comes in (an Indian) and we talk where he already knocks 800 pesos off something I’m looking at and this piece is the same they have on the junk floor at Gaisano. Only this is in mint condition and about 4K less than what Gaisano sells it for. So last week wife and I went back to do some shopping at this store and picked out a queen size bed, import foam, dining set and what I first looked at. Total price 53K but he knocked it down to 48K with free delivery and set up. Yes they did deliver the next day like they said but were late, they did call though. Can you tell this store is not run by filipinos?
2.) Yes we have a brand new road running by our place with very little traffic. So why do I mention this? Well the road is standard width and about 150 to 200 yards long on private property. So watching them build the road I saw the signs up, “This is where your tax money goes.” The owner got the city to put in a road on his property at city expense.
3.) Our new maid told our niece that if she decided she did not want to work she would take her day off and leave but leave her stuff her and send someone to pick it up for her. Maid was out on her day off this day. Wife told me this and that wife would give it to the one sent. I told wife that is a very bad idea to which I got the blank stare so I had to break out the crayons on explain. What if you give it to the person she sends and things are missing when she gets it because the one she sent took stuff out of it and tells her it is what they were given? No, she wants it, she comes and gets it. Does my thinking mean I have been here too long? Learned the filipinos? Am anti filipino?
4.) So one of neighbors ex maids comes around a lot as no job but is eye candy. Well last night she visited and asked my wife if it was ok if her boyfriend came over to which wife said yes but he cannot sleep here (this was told to her several times by wife). So boyfriend shows up and they sit and talk out front then comes the filipino planning. They asked my wife if he could spend the night as all transportation back to his place has stopped and no way for him to get home. Wife stood her ground and said no, they knew when trans stopped and were told before he came he could not spend the night. Then they ask if he can sleep outside by our front door. Wife sent both walking down the street.
5.) Went to 7-11 last night and picked up a drink, newspapers and such along with one of their rewards cards. Got back to apt and went online to activate the rewards card with info asked for, name, address, date of birth, cell number, address, sex. Since I don’t have a cell phone I asked wife to activate it using her cell number to which she told me it was already active. How could that be since just got it and I did not do it. She said the 7-11 staff told her they already activated it. So my rewards card is in the name of someone working at 7-11. Any ideas what this is about or how it works from PFB members?
6.) Pinay neighbor has 2 kids with a Korean but not married to the Korean. Said pinay cannot keep help as she does not feed them nothing but mostly noodles, they are not allowed to drink coffee and such. Well they went to Singapore and her and wife got in a text fight after pinay said she did not understand why could not keep help, pinay use to be a maid before she met the Korean. Wife told her not to forget where she came from and that she use to be house help and should know what they do and how to treat them. That made pinay mad. Now wife knows a lot about what this pinay does so now pinay scared and keeping the Korean away from us when he comes to town. Said pinay sneaks out and goes to discos and let’s the men grope her for one. Last month she got another pinay mad at her because she was meeting that pinays man behind her back. Now pinay neighbor told her Korean not to come in Sept and Oct, he comes every month from Korea and stays a week. Why she tell him not to come? She has it set up to meet an American flying in from the states in another city. How do I know? She put my wife on the phone to talk to him as she was afraid her English not good enough. Wonder why she does not want my wife talking to her Korean?
7.) Doors. Well our front door is tight and have to slam it to get it to close and lock. I told wife to have them shave it done a little bit. Their reply? “There is nothing wrong with the door. Doors are made like that so you have to slam them shut.” Me: “Why?” Them: So you know when someone goes in or out.” Me: “That’s bullshit and you know it. When you going to fix the door?” Still waiting for an answer.
So now you know some of what has happened in my life. “It’s more fun in the philippines!!!!”Published in
