You know, I know, and we all know how dishonest and irresponsible and untrustworthy Pinoys/Filipinos can be. Regardless of the task, promise, or whatever word they are obligated to live up to, they inevitably let you down almost 80% of the time, or whatever percentage above 50 you have personally experienced. This story is primarily being stressed out towards the Filipinos who are in denial of the dishonesty, therefore I am providing this blog a series of evidences stating why I believe Filipinos can’t be trusted. These sources of evidence derives from the country itself, therefore it would be damn near impossible to contradict my statements, unless you are in the highest state of delusion to the point where you would even deny that fire is hot.
This is a quick list I have personally came up with based on what I see here on a daily basis:
1. Security guards armed with shotguns guarding both sides of a Goldilocks restaurant at Mall of Asia – Really now, is that necessary? It’s only a fucking bakery! Is stealing cupcakes that popular these days?
2. Hypermarket Employees – How many times have you stood around the entrance of a Hypermarket with a security guard stationed there. Almost every time right? I don’t know if this applies to all Hypermarkets, but at least at mine, the guard posted inside checks ALL who passes her (normally a female guard) by, customers AND employees. When ever an employee enters or exit the sale floor, they are ALWAYS pseudo-frisked at the waist. For God sake! They can’t even trust their OWN employees?!
3. Attendance for College Professors – OK, I get the point of clocking in to start off your work day, which is completely normal, and then clocking out at the end of the day, but here they step it up a notch. Within the first 15 minutes of every fuckin class, some student-slave (or student assistant they call them) barges into the classroom, interrupting the lesson, just so the professor can sign a clipboard stating that they were present to teach that subject. Then the student slave continues his spree of interrupting classes all day within the first 15 minutes of each class. Again, is this really necessary? They can’t trust their teaching staff to show up to their own classes on time either? I guess it’s common for teachers to play hooky too.
4. Cashiers – Needless to mention, but cashiers are not even granted the authority to void their own transactions when a mistakes arise, which is very ironic being the fact that they make mistakes very often, especially at fast food restaurants.
5. Rationing condiments (Sugar, Ketchup, Syrup, napkins…etc) – Must I really say more?
6. Inconvenient Bathrooms/ C.R.’s – As mentioned previously by another member on here, bathroom utilities are rarely seen in public bathrooms in Philippines because if it’s not bolted or chained down, they don’t provide it. It’s common for Filipinos to steal toilet paper, toilet seats, paper towels, and they even abuse the privilege of having free soap / hand sanitizer by filling their personal vials with it. This is why bathrooms are poorly furnished with the hygiene equipment needed for customers.
7. 24 Hour Security guards at ATMs and Condos – Bad enough we see these molesters at the entrance of every mall, but being the outgoing type that I am. I like to take nightly strolls, and as I walk down the street in the middle of the night, I notice security guards being posted to guard unattended ATMs. Yeah, even ATMs are guarded at night, especially if they are online. Sometimes I wonder why, isn’t the inbuilt security system not strong enough to prevent tampering. Never have I seen guards posted at idle ATMs in the states, not even at the busy ones in broad day light. Well I do appreciate the 24 hour guards posted at my condo entrance gate, those sleepy-head fucks keeps me protected every night 🙂 (sarcasm)
8. Buying appliances – I really shouldn’t have to clarify this, but for the sake of those who haven’t bought appliances before, I will briefly explain. If you are the type of person who likes to do your shopping, and having all your purchases be consolidated into one payment, you can forget about that when buying appliances along with your every week shopping. Being a credit card user, there have been times where my credit card had been temporarily suspended for over-usage, which is contributed to going to the Hypermarket, and being forced to pay for my appliances, groceries, and liquor at 3 separate counters, instead of ‘ALL AT ONCE’ at ONE fuckin counter! That rings up 3 separate transactions on my banks statement in one day, which caused my paranoid bank to shut down my credit card for suspicion of fraudulent transactions, because I’ve been using it too much. Lately, I’ve learned to do my appliance shopping, liquor shopping, and grocery shopping on separate days, I no longer go for all 3 anymore unless I am paying with cash.Published in
