I am a new member of this site. I am a Filipina and married to American. I have so many why questions in my country instead of saying what the fuck . Like me and my husband going to grocery store and some Filipino leave their grocery cart in the middle , some just don’t give a fuck to other people?! Your looking for some stuff and you can’t find it you will asked some staff and some know what their job in fairness to them but mostly of staff you will asked where is this sauce or something they will look on their right side and left side and they will say nothing or they don’t have anymore but after 5mins me or my husband find it. Like, fuck do you even try to look for it or you just lazy or you don’t know your job. So me and my husband get tired of this situation it happen a lot of times so we stop asking.
If my husband go some where to commute without me instead of paying 11pesos , driver will charged him 100 pesos. Or in trike instead of charging him 20 pesos they charged him 600pesos but after living here for long he will have his coins ready always with him so even drivers try to take advantage to him they cannot. Mostly we go out together much better and safer to him. I heard a lot of stories about foreigner who goes to our shop and tell their experiences here in P.I. One foreigner took a trike and He proudly said , I took a trike and I pay 3000 pesos and the trike driver give me a free Gatorade. We told him that he suppose to pay 150 pesos or if he ride a jeepney it will cost him 8pesos.
Me and my husband walking and some kids and with some oldies shout hey foreigner guy give me money. I told my husband say nothing in tagalog word. some oldies and kids will say your foreigner you have a lot of money. Pisses me off and I shout fuck! it doesn’t mean you see a foreigner it will see a money coming out in their ass. It pisses me off and make me feel bad how this kids and elder let this kids think that.
I heard a lot of stories of our foreigner friend. We have one friend and have two kids with a filipina, so he need to take care of her , her kids from ex husband and her family till he doesn’t have enough money to support and he need to moved to much cheaper rent and looked for a job. Bar girl girlfriend left her and looked for another foreigner.
Then another friend who marry a young filipina and his in 60s he take care of her families and 9 siblings and her relatives. When his mother in law which his older than her asked him to give her money to start a bakery business ,of course he gave him (he told us he doesn’t care about money) bakery business failed. then family asked him they want to start a business again a grocery business so of course he cannot say no again so he give them money again. Grocery business doesn’t work again. He told us in their house his wife have a lot of visitor and he doesn’t even know them so he will get a chair and sit outside and wait till they leave.
One time , we saw a german guy in computer shop, he said his waiting for his friend to online because he will asked his friend to send him money so he can go back to his country. His bargirl girlfriend stole all his money and his laptop.
Do you notice that manner doesn’t really exist here?! I thought it exist. If you going out in a shop and someone will go inside the person will doesn’t give a fuck about you and will go inside and doesn’t even hold the door for you or for the next to that person.
If your in a jeepney, bus or plane… Some Filipino are me First! like you wanna say hey everyone will get out.
If your in the teller or cashier.. some filipino doesn’t care about the line, they don’t give a fuck who came first.. they just think they came got they need and will pay..
In Bureau of Immigration.. why foreigner need to pay express lane if there’s no other lane to choose from?!Published in
