Random Rules With No Reason


It’s a famous quote that says actions speak louder than words….

I’m speechless to describe the level of stupidity in this picture that I took years ago, imagine how many people gathered around and made up such a rule, imagine how much time and energy and stupidity required to make such a completely random rule, lacking any reason whatsoever, and then pass it to all the facilities! And why the fuck in the world just Mondays?!!! If it’s bad or whatever reason is in your stupid mind, just prohibit using of fucking plastic straws 7 days a week! What good can it do on Mondays except inconvenience of the customer who just want to have a fucking drink??!!??

Anyways I’m really new in this blog and I’m really glad that I found a place to empty my everyday anger instead of their stupid failipino face!

I’ve been living here for 8 years now and I have alot to share with you people from the bastard taxi drivers to the freaking so called 5 star condominium that i stay or the damn paperwork , it’s like a therapy group here, all of us are suffering from same shit and it’s FILIPINO STUPIDITY!

    I associate drinking from straws as something children like to do. I don’t drink my beer with a straw. I don’t drink anything with a straw. I crack open my soda, and drink from the bottle or can. To me, it looks ridiculous watching grown men drink from a straw. I never understood why these idiots have to use a straw, other than they never fucking grew up. Which we all know is the case with Flips.

      I used to drink from bottles then I saw what they were wiping the tops with. Something black that was once a white cloth and LOOKED LIKE it was used for everything including the floor and never washed .

    Ive been told by the child bride that everything is DIRTY., so she wipes everything and either pours it into her clean glass or sucks on a straw, if they don’t have a CLEAN GLASS.
    Why it would be dirty one day of the week is a fucking Mystery Though.

      That’s another FUCKING IRONY. If they’re so concerned about “dirty”, why do they treat their country like a fucking huge toilet and garbage dump? If they’re so concerned about germs and cleanliness, why do they make their country such a FILTH PIT?

        I’ve had friends marvel at the beauty of a place like sigijour and with another few breaths be unwrapping cigarettes and throwing the plastic wrap on the ground or butts on the ground or chip packets. I said pick up your fucking rubbish! Reply …why? As typical never argue with a Filipino I said see that ..it’s ocean and THIS will end up in the ocean blah. reply? We are far away from the ocean (around 70m I don’t think so)
        Such defensive cunts

          It’s that 2 second memory.. Like.. When I get told by a shit dumping Filipina ( many filos would probably give a gormless look at being called a shit dumper) where they say “I’m not like the rest” or “not all Filipina are like that sir” ..defensing themselves that they dont ask for money (the bigger better sari sari store syndrome) and in the next breaths be asking for cash for some fucked up idea or problem

          I watched the mother in law throw a plastic bag in the gutter, I waited until she got in the car, got nicely settled and comfortable and then I made her get back out, and pick up her fucking rubbish,
          Now I will admit she threw rubbish on top of more rubbish in the gutter.
          But that was not the point.
          I can assure you , the look I got would have frozen a bowl of hot chilli .
          I got to admit I did enjoy it maybe a bit too much., as she had to climb down into the small gutter to get the rubbish.
          But the point is , she never even gave it a second thought, just chuck it into the drain running to the ocean not 50 meters away.
          Then her daughter will blame the whole fucking world for sending their rubbish to the Philippines.
          Fuck you AL and you Canadians, you have given them another excuse to be GRUBS.

          Have you ever seen a GARBAGE TRAP on a drain to the ocean.
          Would it kill them to install them.
          They wouldn’t have to even monitor them, as the scavengers would realize what a fertile hunting ground it is and keep it clean.
          NOPE, they would take what they wanted to sell and throw the rest over the trap so they would not have to sort through that lot again.

    Apparently the city hall doesn’t have any other thing to do except deciding about straws!!
    Just imagine bunch of people sat around together and discuss about the day of not using straws!…. Someone ask why not Tuesday bossing? The other one will answer kase my mama using straws on Tuesday to put in her ass po!…. Cge cge monday nalang!
    And the other world that really caught my attention was STRICTLY… Like they wanted to warn about fire arms or something!!!

      Yeah, imagine the feeling of power that must have given the maker of the straw law to use the word “strictly”. He must have felt 10 feet tall! I wonder that the penalty is if arrested and convicted for violating the “drinking through a plastic straw on a Monday” would be. Would it involve prison time? Or just a fine?
      Ignorance of the Monday Straw Law is no excuse!

    I do notice random, bizarre rules that have no basis of any logic or reason. It’s like some guy with power is bored as hell sitting on his throne and wants something to do, and to exert his power. So he makes up some idiotic rule that makes no sense, has no reason, other than to feed his ego. It’s an opportunity to put his name on something.
    Such narcissistic child-like behavior.
    Remember as a child when you would play make-believe, and you got to be the king or boss, and you just made up some random law or rule just because you could, because that’s what you, as an unknowing child thought that’s what kings and bosses do? Nevermind a practical reason, just make a law, because that’s what you’re there for.
    Welcome to Philippines.

        How about this Fail, the child bride will NOT drink out of Plastic Coke Bottle, says it tastes funny all the chemicals. I sort of agree with that but .
        So she will only drink Can Coke or Bottle Coke. don’t know why it tastes funny.
        Then I see her on the fucking beach drinking Sack coke.WTF

          I prefer Coke out of a glass bottle myself. It tastes better than from a can or plastic bottle. Also, since they use real sugar here instead of HFCS that makes it taste better too. Those small 6 to 8 ounce bottles don’t take long to finish, so I just have them hand me the bottle, wipe off the top, put it to my lips and bottoms up! Sadly, most refs here are kept at 4C to 5C (about 40F), so it’s not as cold as I like. In Thailand they keep the ref around 1C (33F), that makes it an even better treat.

            I agree 100% if I drink coke at all, I like the little glass bottles , i my ref which is set at 3 degrees.
            1 degree is way too close to frozen coke.
            Two mouthfuls of ice cold bubbles.
            I usually try to have a case or two at the house in the store room under lock and key.
            It is amazing how the fucking rats open that coke and drink it, because it evaporates slowly.
            What pisses me off no end is I cant always get the little glass bottle.
            BUT SIR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE HAVE PLASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            The child bride prefers the coke in Australia now, its the only fucking thing she likes.
            Its something about the formula in the PI , it has changed or something.
            It may be the real sugar has been changed, this is a recent last twelve months event.
            She is the one that I buy it for, but I’m like you on a hot day, those little bottles Icy Cold.

        I know right. In the states that deposit is minor that it’s basically an incentive pay for homeless to keep the streets clean of bottles and cans. Over here they grip that deposit like it’s gonna make or break the business.

    You’re gonna love this one. A few weeks ago there was a neatly typed notice appeared in the lifts, at the condo where I live. It was from the manager of the condominium corporation, and was about the mostly mindless procedures pertaining to move in/out permits. After the usual use of completely deprecated “big words” in English, the notice moved on to pre-move-in requirements from the landlord. These included the usual array of notarized documents, plus an NBI clearance for each tenant.
    The notice then wen on to say (highlighting the complete incompetence of the manager) that many move ins had been permitted without their own requirements having been satisfied. It then tells owners that they must obtain all of these items and present them to the body corp manager, or tenants will not be permitted to move out.
    Fucking awesome, I thought. I’ll just stop paying the rent. No need to worry. The landlord can’t kick me out. I won’t even be allowed to move out!
    Of course, if I was a convicted axe murderer, it would have been perfectly OK for me to live here all of this time. It’s only when moving out (and presenting the NB clearance) that they would even know!
    The completely mindless nature of the rules that these fucking idiots come up with never ceases to amaze me. I’ve long ago stopped even asking why. My sole objective now in dealing with these retards is to figure out where the hoops are, and just jump through them.

        I like the guards.

        They are the only group of people in the Philippines that are consistently cool people.

        Did you not get some sort of rule book before you bought your condo and joined the homeowner’s association?

        Violating the rules could get you in serious trouble…

    So not drunken skinny dipping parties in your pool.?????????
    Sounds like a FUN place to live.
    It could be worse the public pool on SBMA wants 15k a year for membership.
    Which is probably why I still thought the pool hadn’t opened yet.

    I’ve often noticed in hotels and resorts the stupid signs in rooms aimed at everybody just because one stupid flip did one stupid thing, so some power tripping employee gets off on making a sign. We’ve all seen the, “Please do not put your tissue in the toilet because it clogs the pipes”. Some of my other favorites:

    Please do not put your sanitary napkins in the toilet
    Please do not do your laundry in the basin
    Please do not wash your dishes in the lavatory (seriously, did somebody actually mistake a toilet for a dishwasher here?)

    And they’re always signed – The Management. Oooh, it’s come right from the top, shit just got real!

    I saw in a bakery a sign on the back of the till for all the customers to see – “If you require a handwritten receipt please notify us before making payment”. Only a filipino, who prefers to be stuck 50 years behind the rest of the world, would ask for a handwritten receipt.

    My all time favorite sign was inside a bathroom at a bar. So simple, yet so mind boggling retarded. “Hand-dryer >” What else would it fucking be? And did somebody actually mistake it for something else? Morons.

    You silly kanos! You don’ unerstand how we make our rules? Simple, really. Just bored, sitting in the office, got some 10 sided dice off some fool kano who didn’t pay the right bribe, wondering who uses such weird dice? So I get to thinking, mus make use of dese dice! So I make up a chart, 1-2 Monday, 3-4 Tuesday, 5-6 Wednesday, 7-8 Thursday, 9-10 Friday. I roll a 2, so it means mus do somtin on Monday. Hard to make anyone DO anyting here, so I tink, Hmm, prohibit what? So I make up a silly chart of 100 things to prohibit, roll a 97, get “use straw”, so de new rule is “Using straw on Mondays is STRICTLY prohibited!” Got dat you silly kanos? Dese is how I come up wit my brilliant plans!

    But if you break the rules, what is the punishment? Some guard will say “stop or I’ll say stop again?”

    Come to think of it, actually being approached by a guard over something so stupid would be punishment enough. Something like that would probably tick me off for the next two hours.

    Dealt with TSA lately? Was taking medication that was required to be kept cool. Had two of those blue ice packs. One was frozen. The other partially melted. TSA got their knickers in a wad over the melted one. I asked them how do I handle this when, even in an insulted bag, they will both melt, sooner or later. Idiocy abounds.

      I don’t know about TSA, I was flying through Australia, and I had my small pillow for the flight tied to my carry on bag with a Bungy cord.
      They told me I had to throw it away as it was a STRANGLING DEVICE, I could not carry it on the plane.
      I asked how do you strangle someone with a FUCKING RUBBER BAND. ?????? Lucky I was in transit in my home country !!!!!!!!
      The Imbecile said it was a strangling device so that’s was it.!!!!!!!!!
      I asked if they were confiscating all the belts the other passengers had to take off too be checked before donning them again. He blinked,
      I said if I can strangle some one with a rubber band , I certainly can with a FUCKING BELT !!!!!!!!!!!.
      He had no answer. They just confiscated my Bungy Cord, to make matters worse I lost my fucking pillow because I forgot It wasn’t tied to my carry on bag anymore.
      I’m sure I have terrorist tattooed on my forehead, I can get on a plane full of RAGHEADS and they will check me for explosives every fucking time. At the gold Coast I accused them of Profiling Me.
      WHAT DO YOU MEAN SIR ?????????
      Fat white men with Beards ????????? are to be checked always.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bombers HAH.
      I shouldn’t complain though Ive had a good run for a while , whilst it was 100% check for explosives , the last two times Ive gotten through.unchecked.

    What about the tents that block the road for the wakes. I’ve seen some on the national highway!! Blocking 1/3 to half across the road!!!
    2. Where they put up signs of FINES My friends said private owners can fine you yup filos believe that shit eg 5000 peso..1500 pesos if you dump rubbishw on the front of the peoples properties..pissing against their wall or parking overnight 2000 peso release fee.
    3.detainment. Where else could people want to detain you because you won’t pay for a soup that had a hair ball in it!! And try force you to pay
    Aha that’s called traditional filipino service sir 🙂 we are here to help you sir..yes sir..no sir..three bags full sir

        In the US if you smoke in a hotel room and get caught, then they can tack on a $250 US charge for cleaning . You know the rules going in. An idiot coworker had that happen to him and next payday, they took the cleaning charge right off the top of his check.

      It sounds like a power/control thing. I hit that here sometimes, you’re paying them and they want to control you. Complain you make them feel small, I think the problem is they want to feel big by controlling you and when you push back, then they feel small because they can’t control you. How about being equals and playing fair? I don’t want to feel BIG, I just don’t want to be a door mat. Dealing with them never makes me feel big, it makes me feel they think they are better than me actually because they feel it’s right to take advantage of me. In the beginning I felt sorry for the poverty stricken girls, just needing a chance, a chance mainstream American girls have. They actually feel they are entitled to better due to their own ignorance. They want social climb while doing what would end an American up in ghettos and white trash trailer parks. The message I feel from them is they are better than us.

    So what is to stop someone from posting their own rules?

    How about something like:
    It has been brought to the attention of management that personal hygiene is neglected by some people. To ensure proper hygiene, underwear must be worn on the outside of the street clothing and changed twice a day. This applies to males as well as females. A 500P fine for the first offense.

    Management is aware that foreigners are targets of scammers. Be aware that if it weren’t for foreigners living in this complex, that it would be worse than Tondo. Pinoy/Pinay scammers preying on the foreigners will be fined 50,000P and forced to publically apologize to the insulted foreigners. The money is split between management and the offended foreigners.

    A 500P fine for all two wheeled vehicles found with both tires on the ground on every day that ends in a “Y”.

    Plaster these up all over the complex. Make them look ‘official’ and sit back and have fun.

    IIRC there was a law telling that the inmates/prisoners can have their own visitors. The real kicker is there was already a law implemented with the same purpose, with the difference being in description only. No shit, sherlock. The one who thought of that must have felt like he’s on the same level of smartness as Galileo for a moment.
