The stupidity and complete idiocy of the Filipino way of doing things has delivered the ultimate fuck-over for me and my way of earning a living. The brainless, completely irresponsible, unaccountable idiots known as native Filipinos continue to out-do their stupidity, and this time it could cost me my livelihood.
My business is 100% dependent on a somewhat consistent high speed internet connection. Time is money. My progress and volume is throttled by internet speeds and up-time. Therefore I subscribe to both PLDT and Globe DSL services.
I recently relocated, but before choosing this house, I inquired with both PLDT and Globe to make sure their DSL service is available to the house I was intending to lease. Of course if it’s not available to this particular house, there’s no way I can operate, and will have to find a house that would be within their servicing area.
So when I called and gave them the address / location of the house I would like to rent, BOTH PLDT AND GLOBE asked me for a “sketch” (or hand drawn map) to the house. There’s the first utter fucking stupidity. First of all, any PROFESSIONAL company would not ask the customer to do their job. Secondly, any PROFESSIONAL company would have maps of the city which pinpoint all of their existing connection cabinets, and the range of areas within the spans of those cabinets marked out for immediate reference. But stupid morons can’t think that well. But fully expecting complete stupidity, I did better than draw a map. I did what they should have done, went online, printed out a map of the barangay, and highlighted the path to the house and spent the better part of a day fighting traffic to and from their offices to deliver the maps. Then they said they would contact me with an answer within 24 hours.
Of course as expected, I did not hear from Globe Telecom or PLDT with their answers. So as usual, I am the one who has to call them back after 48 hours to get the information they promised to give to me within 24 hours. And of course, it was forgotten about, and nobody knew a fucking thing, nor could anyone find the maps I spend most of my day delivering to them at their inappropriate idiotic request. So the typical arguing and fighting ensues, and the call ends with the typical perpetual cycle of the 3 F’s; Forward the concern, follow up, and feedback, then forwarding of the previous forward, feedback on the forward of the forward, and follow up on the forward and it just goes on and on. Eventually, after much hair-pulling frustration and complete typical Filipino stupidity, irresponsibility and ignorance, I got an answer from them.
Both Globe Telecom and PLDT told me that they do have service available to this house I want to lease. So I initiate the transfer of both my PLDT and Globe DSL accounts, and I sign the lease for the house, and start packing, and eventually move in to the new house.
Within a day or two after moving in, PLDT shows up to install. But they give me devastating news. “I’m sorry sir, but you are not within range of the closest connection cabinet, service is not available to his house.” and to make a long story short, Globe shows up the next day to deliver the same devastating news.
Needless to say I blew my top and delivered a major tongue lashing telling them how fucking stupid they are, and now they have put me in a position of not being able to do my job or make a living. I just spent over 200,000 pesos on the costs of relocating based on the fact they confirmed that DSL service was available to this house. So much for the map I gave them! FUCKING FILIPINO IDIOTS!!!!!!!
Well, I told them now is the time to extend their service just a little bit more by installing another connection cabinet and take responsibility for the MISINFORMATION they gave me which made me move into this house. I certainly don’t have another 200,000 pesos to move again, and I am seriously fucked now. I could almost hear their thoughts about my demand to take responsibility: “hhhmmm what is responsibility? I don’t know that word”. Filipinos are complete failures.
So far, neither Globe or PLDT have done much, and refuse to extend service a few hundred meters to service my new house. I’m stuck with a wireless USB device which is shitty, slow, and completely insufficient for my requirements.
I have had to deal with Filipino stupidity, unaccountability, irresponsibility for several years, and it’s been tough but managable. But this time I just don’t know if I can recover from this complete failure from Globe and PLDT. I guess time will tell. And maybe it’s a sign that my time here is finished.
I can certainly see why most of the world community will not invest in or associate with Philippines or it’s people. They are complete and total stupid, irresponsible, unaccountable fucking idiots who don’t know the difference between their ass and a hole in the ground. I swear, these people are so fucking stupid, I am beginning to question if they’re even human!! Because I find it hard to believe that any single living thing with a brain could actually be THIS FUCKING STUPID!! The cockroaches here are smarter!
IT’S MORE FAIL IN PHILIPPINES!Published in
