So here we are in another new year hoping to see improvements but waiting for what most likely will be more failures. Some more spectacular than others and maybe even some that blow the mind with a very big WTF WERE THEY THINKING?
Holy Mary Full Of Sh!t!
So we have our son in a private school which he seems to enjoy as much as a kid in school can I guess. Now this happens to be a catholic school but I was assured they would not push the religion on him before we enrolled him. Now if you have been in the philippines any length of time you know what is coming. After he was enrolled and about a month or so into classes it happened. The school said he had to attend mass once a month as part of his grades, all together now,,,, WTF!!!
So I go to his school to take his lunch, pick him up, chat with teacher about his progress. She ensures me he can do something else to replace the mass but offers nothing. As we talk outside the classroom gently flapping in the soft breeze are the string banners that run from post to post we see all along the streets. What are the banners? They are all ads for Globe! Teacher says Globe is one of their sponsors when I ask about them, the whole school grounds are plastered with them and it’s not a small campus. I have heard that the catholic church has 30 BILLION PESOS stock in the philippines. Archdiocese in Germany has 2 BILLION EURO surplus of funds and the list goes on. So why in hell does a catholic school in the philippines need a commercial sponsor? Yes, this is his first and last year at this school.
Where’s The Smart Part?
We went and looked a a bigger, better house the other day. Going down the street we stopped at a light and to my right I saw a tarp banner stating “Enjoy Ultra Fast Internert With Smart Bro Pocket WiFi In Brgy____”
Now I happen to live in that Brgy and just happen to have Smart Bro Pocket Wifi. I’m wondering when the “Ultra Fast” starts because for the last 4 months service has gotten worse and it is not uncommon for it to take 2 plus hours for a webpage to load! Reminds me of my boot camp days with the NCOs yelling ” DEAD PEOPLE MOVE FASTER THAN THAT!” or the ever popular “OLD PEOPLE FUCK FASTER THAN THAT!” NCOs always have a way with words right? But looking at the offers from Smart and the rest I see the fine print where it says 80% reliability. I think I have that figured out. They do not mean 80% of the time out of 100%. What they mean is the reliability is 80% only 20% of the time. Don’t know about you but as for me, I’m still waiting for the 20% of the time. I did stop into Globe and asked them about their pocket wifi. They assured me that theirs was better than Smart. But I have to ask,, how come I don’t believe them?
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished In The philippines
Kinfolk of wife had someone try to break into their house a few times back to back nights. So being the kind people we are wife asked about them borrowing our unused cctv system which I advised where to set the cameras. So what happens? They tell others they suspect wife is behind the attempted break ins. Told wife to go get the cctv system back before it gets broken, lost, sold or stolen as is the filipinos custom with anything they borrow. Wife will not and the excuse is a classic “If I go get it back then they will say that I am behind the break ins.” and the tail chasing begins right? We all see where this is going. It’s a waste of time trying to explain to child bride that they are already saying that. Then to top it off her step mother started making veiled threats and all in the house stopped replying to texts from wife. Now what is it filipinos keep saying about close family ties?
The Maid Has Been Maid
As to the above we did find out our maid passed info to the kin about the break in attempts. Looks like a cousin that lives in house up front trying to scare them off and a dyke down the street stirring the pot. How can you fault a woman that most likely gets more pussy than you do? So the maid is quitting. Not because of the passing info, was nothing to pass really as we never said anything. No, she quitting because mom in law threatens to beat her. We all know how filipinos think they are better than anyone who works for them. But this maid was “odd” anyway:
1.) Never had to tell her what to do, she just did it.
2.) Never used bleach on my clothes nor ruined them.
3.) Kept house clean, clothes washed.
4.) Never showed me bear body parts nor tried to bed me 🙁
So told wife, now I see why your mom chased her away, she did her job, did not give me any hassles, I always had clean clothes. Yep, great reasons to chase her off. Only in the mind of a filipino right?
I often go to www.military.com to read the news articles and do the trivia. Well about a month or so ago I saw where the U.S. was GIVING 2 or 3 ships to the philippines so I read the article and then the comments. I went ahead and posted a comment that the philippines would not take care, repair or maintain the ships and do not take care of what they already have. To back up my post I mentioned the AFP cash conversion, Lim, corruption on all levels of the society, trash thrown everywhere along with filipinos urinating on walls, doorways and such.
So how did it go you are asking yourself? Well right away I got a reply from a filipino who said that skid row in Los Angeles was just as bad as what I said the philippines was like and I must be mad because I live on Smokey Mountain in Tondo. To this I replied that he can name only one place in the states but I am talking about a whole country that is like Smokey Mountain. Said pinoy never would say where he lived though.
So here come another blind mouse telling me he LIVED (not lives) in the philippines years ago for a decade and that I was lying in my post. He goes on to say that the philippines is a great place to invest and do business in which he named magazines that said pretty much the same thing. So I pointed him to the Biz News Asia magazine and told him if so great then come here and invest or open a business and then tell me how great it is. I told him I do live in the philippines. Where does he live? In the U.S.
But, I saved the best for last.
Third guy told me I was wrong about what I said it was like in the philippines. He said he knew because he was married to a pinay and living in the states. So being married to a pinay and living in the U.S. makes him an expert on living in the philippines in his mind. My reply was simple. “Tell your pinay wife that you and her are selling everything you own and moving to the philippines for good and see what happens.” Never heard another word from him. I did notice though that ALL my comments regarding the philippines was removed by the website.
Did I use racial slurs? No. Did I trash anyone? No. All I did was say what everyone sees but ignores, said what can be verified online through several websites and what happens? I’m called a racist. Once again the truth hurts and comments removed. One funny thing though about after my comments were removed and I saw that. I put another comment in the same original posts as the replies of the others were not removed, my parting comment was “Looks like military.com is kissing filipino @ss.” That was not removed.
As you all know the child bride likes to do business, minds out of the gutter please. I’m talking the likes of owning a store, diner and so on and so forth which brings me to Pinoy Proof is there such a thing? In the navy they had an old saying that “it might be child proof but they have never made anything that is sailor proof.” so in line with that here we go.
1.) Staff would bend forks and spoons to use so they could “lock” the door. It did not matter that the padlock was right next to the door and within arms reach.
2.) Using bleach or chlorine and ruining clothes.
3.) Open the Rubbermaid cooler 40 quart and push lid back so far they snap it off.
4.) Break the thick,hard (mind out of gutters please) handle on a pressure cooker in half.
5.) Break the doors off the plastic cabinet that holds the plates. Not just one door but both and all within 2 months.
6.) Twist the knobs on faucets so hard when turning off they twist to faucet off. I replaced 12 faucets in 2 months.
7.) Broken plates, glasses, bowls.
8.) Broken pots and pans.
9.) Using steel wool on non stick pans until they see the shiny metal under ruining the pan. Yes, they were told not to use steel wool and sponge only.
10.) Using sandpaper to clean a pot until they sandpaper a hole in the side.
We left a 12″ Samsung LCD flat panel tv with my mother in law so she would have a tv. Well it lasted less than a year. Why? She let water drip down on onto it until it blew. At present I’m wondering just how the 32″ managed to survived.
Then I think of the freezer of Poor Ol’ Joe. He went back to the states to work and his “wife” let kinfolk borrow the freezer. They in turn loaned it to one of their friends all without Joe knowing. Some of you will remember the post I made about that. So Joe arrives back in the pi and noticed his freezer was gone and goes looking for it. Joe found his freezer later with car parts stored in it at the friend of the wife’s kin folk. What was wrong besides car parts and trash stored inside of it? They punched holes all over on the inside because ice was building up. So there is a ruined freezer that cost thousands of pesos. Do the filipinos offer to replace or pay for it? NO! What do they do? They look at Joe and ask “Do you want it back?”
So the question remains, is anything pinoy proof? Is there anything they cannot tear up, break or otherwise trash?Published in
