Ok, so I have not been on for a few weeks or so and some think the tribe took me back into the jungle never to be seen or heard from again. No, not by naked sexy, sex starved native girls. Well to the dismay of Filipinos I still breath, kick and vent. But before I go on it is only proper to send kudos to Capt Filo for keeping PFB up and running despite the hardships it causes on him.
So here is where things set on the “home front”, both good .bad and WTF. So where to start, maybe at the beginning? Well I checked my ebenefits for the first time in 4+ years and found out VA increased me to 70% over 4 years ago but have only been paying me at a lower rate, so 4+ years back pay tax free. There the good news, now onto anything that involves Filipinos, the Philippines and other worldly events. We moved (again) into a new place because the caretaker of our last place attacked me without cause or provocation. Now since it was within the boundaries of his property I did not fight back as I had no witness and did not want to give him the excuse I struck first. So we go to PLDT to get internet installed in the new pad. Two weeks they say and no longer, ok says I let’s do it. Then 13 days later still no PLDT pinoy at my door to install my internet. Further questions revealed that it took them 13 days just to write out the install order. Then I’m told another two weeks to install what should have been installed within the last two weeks, go figure. Now there is no fibr in this subdivision so we ask for the 8mb which they say they do have where we are. So into PLDT to transfer our internet at the 8mb, better than nothing I figure. PLDT then tells us that 8mb is very slow and then sets us up with,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,5MB! Wife threw a fit and they did install it within a few days AFTER our first 14 days and before the second 14 days.
So after waiting two weeks and expecting another two week wait one Sunday I lay down for a nap, boredom you see. Soon as I fall asleep PLDT is knocking at my door to install the internet they should have installed over a week ago. So I show them where I want it and right away they say it will take more cable, I say how much, blank stare. So I tell them to install it which they do in about 45 minutes always talking about the extra cable. So it’s installed and I have paperwork to sign, ok no problem and I sign as it just says it was installed and we paid in advance. Then it comes, one comes up asking about the extra cable and again I ask how much. His reply, what ever you think it’s worth. PLDT must lose a lot of wire/cable through this scam. Then to top it off we had a landline which includes a phone. The PLDT guys used our phone from the last place instead of using the phone that came with the package. So looks like they sell phones on the side as well. Now you might be asking why I did not get the phone out of them, Well that is simple. The Filipinos who lived here before had PLDT landline and left their phone, so I’ll just take it. Now get a load of this. So far the DSL works pretty good on the laptop and desktop but the problem is with the tablets. Open the tablet and all is fine but it keeps disconnecting from the net so have to open setting and sign back in. What does it say under wifi settings for the sign in? “Authentication Error Occurred”, it is not uncommon to get this several times throughout the day.
Here is the other thing about PLDT. When I moved into this house there was a PLDT wifi and phone already set up but the wifi/dsl was disconnected due to non payment but PLDT never disconnected the phone, just the wifi. So if I wanted I could call Sarah and flirt with her for hours and it’s on their or PLDT bill. Sarah, what is your number again? Sorry Al.
God’s gift. We have all seen that on cars, jeepneys, trike and so forth during our time in the Philippines. Well god struck in my house. I walked out front and there sat a brand new car with less than 40km on the odometer. A gift from god but the bastard also left the payments with it too, what a cheap bastard huh? Here are Filipino officials with mansions, cars, yachts and such that have millions and billions of pesos that have “gift from god” or “god’s gift” Then he gives me a new car and the cheap fucker leaves the payment book on the dash. How can it be a gift if I have to pay for it?????????
So I walk down the stairs the other day and there sits mother in law (79) on her bed naked changing her clothes with the door wide open. AL, PLEASE SHOOT ME. SARAH PLEASE BRING THE LETHAL INJECTION! Damn, no eyes should ever see a 79 year old woman with sagging tits, pot belly and a hunch back. I have been considering calling the CIA and suggesting this as a torture method of terrorist suspects. Maybe I could outsource her? Speaking of mother in laws and new place to stay. Well like most houses here there are bars on the windows and dead bolt locks on both doors going outside. The locks are the type that require a key to unlock even from the inside and the doors are a heavy steel, so that is the picture. I went to the new place first while the rest stayed at the old one and packed things up, yes it WAS nice and quiet during that all but too brief time.
So after a week or so mom in law comes over to the new place and has no problem locking or unlocking the dead bolts with the key. So later here comes the child bride and the stay in helper so everything falling into place. I stay upstairs as that is where the pc is set up along with the biggest tv. So there I sit stirring up shit online when the screaming for me starts. How come Filipinos think they have to yell for everyone when they want to talk to them? I was raised if you want to talk to Capt. Filo you don’t yell for him, YOU get up and go find him. You don’t keep yelling for him to come to you, common manners. What did they want that was so important? Well it seems mom in law and the rest of them have suddenly forgot how to lock the dead bolts with the door. Three full grown and mature (ok, as mature as a Filipino can get I guess) that forgot how to use a key even after doing so for years but our 7 year old son has no problem with the locks.
So now I wait on one of two people to show up. Al to just shoot me or Sarah with her lethal injection.
As always I look forward to comments from members. Free 79 year old mother in law to good home.
On Dirtyturd. I just opened my sons Ipab, tab or what ever the hell it’s called and found a game he installed called “Duterte Fighting Crime” you can find it on play store. Damn, they are making out like this guy is the savior of the country. Have one on Youtube telling me vote buying does not matter and others saying Dirtyturd has his good points but never list them. Filipino mindset, always defend another Filipino no matter how fucked up they are. So here is the point I made. Filipinos threw a fit over MJV going to be executed in Indo saying killing was wrong. Then they protested when China executed Filipinos drug mules, Middle East executing Filipinos for murder and so on. Now since they elected a self confessed mass murderer who says he will kill thousands more without when president, how can the legitimately protest the execution of a Filipino by a foreign country after found guilty in a court of law? They can’t without appearing like the two faced, double standard hypocrites they are.
Again a very sincere thanks to the capt for this website.
