some people

this morning, i know that i will be late by 2-3 minutes if i took the jeepney going to the office so when i reached Guadalupe and after i bought a bread for meryenda, i immediately look for a taxi and luckily i found one.

the taxi driver asked me to go the taxi loading area in front of the guadalupe mall/market because he's not allowed to load on the area that i stop him (oh, my bad!) so i run/walk towards the Edsa side of the building to wait for him. when he arrived on about the same time that i did, and then almost at the same time (hmm, paulit-ulit ah hehe) that i am about to hop on the taxi, a group of another three persons also went inside (of course not at the same time lol). i seated on the backseat and then one person occupied the front passenger seat. and then told me to go away as they're the first, hence it should be their taxi.

huuwwhaat?

i smiled and then told them calmly that i'm sorry but i got this taxi first on the other corner and the driver just asked me to go here. and then there was an eruption! the other person (okey, okey, a woman) outside the taxi already let a mouthful of explosive words aimed at me like i should be killed and be dead right then and there!

whoa! i just told them i got it first and the taxi driver affirmed it and then she, out of nowhere will cursed me like she owned the world? geez, where's this woman's reasons? or does she have any? kung magmura sya ng ibang tao para lang syang kumakain ng mani! masyado syang galit sa mundo! goodness!

and the person in front told me "pare wala ka namang pakisama!" hala, paki-spell nga yung pakisama? ano ba naman to, gusto ko lang sumakay ng taxi para makarating ng maaga tapos namura na at mabubugbog pa yata ako? hahaha

my sheepish smile is now turning into a wolf grin as i explain again that it's like this and it's like that, and what did i get? isang malaking "ah, sh*t!". buti na lang, pasensyoso akong tao na kahit mainit na yung ulo ko, i can still control what to say kahit umuusok na yung tenga ko at handa nang maglabas ng apoy! deep breath lang ang katumbas nito.

syempre, in the end kabutihan pa rin ang nagwagi! naks, hehehe. but of course they will not let go of the taxi that easily without the P words at ang malakas na pagsarado ng pinto. nagkatawanan na lang kami ni manong driver as to how some people could behave like that. sabi ni manong, andaming ganyang tao, dapat talaga di sinabayan ang mura ng isa pang mura or else gulo na agad. which is correct di ba? let our humbleness be the cold water to douse the fire.

hay, i just thought that maybe they just woke up on wrong side of the bed or maybe they're just pressured with something or maybe just as pressured and tense like me to go to our destinations early? hehehe.

it was a good thing that i kept my cool and reasons, i am willing to give the taxi to them had they asked me properly but they did not and instead attacked me with expletives.

before the taxi left, i told them "pasensya na po, God bless", and the reply? oh well... kumain ulit sila ng mani...

Dapat ang driver na mismo ang nagsabing nauna ka para tapos na sana agad. La man lang bang sinabi si manong sa mga yun?

vernaloo said...

*clap clap clap* for being cool as a cucumber (favorite idiom ko yan hehe)

jeez...baka na Boiling Point ka dude sa MTV. Hindi ka ba sinabihan kung may camera somewhere? hahahaha

grabe pag ako siguro namura iiyak na lang ako. hindi pa ako namura in my entire life (yeah pero mahilig akong mag "shit" at mag "f*ck" kung daga na ang pinag-uusapan hehe)..baka mabingi ako lolz

zelle said...

Gosh! Astig ka pre! kung ako kaya yun baka nasapak na ako kasi war freak ako eh! baka sagot ko kapag ako ang minura..."likewise...same to you! :D Ginawa ko yan nung college sinabunutan ako ng classmate ko eh sya naman yung nagmura.

Good for you at isa kang cool dude!

zherwin said...

abaniko, kasi nung una akala nya kasama ko yung mga yun pero nung nagmura na yung babae nagreact na rin si manong.

zherwin said...

verns, naku kung boiling point yun asan ang $100 ko???? haha

seriously, ayaw ko nung minumura ako kasi hindi ko nature na mangmura ng tao pero napaka-plastic ko naman kung sabihin kong di ako nagmumura because i do (katulad na lang pag nanunuod ng basketbol hehe) yun nga lang hindi nila katulad na parang kumakain lang ng mani.

zherwin said...

zelle, hala katakot ka pala hahaha. ako kasi hangga't maaari ayaw ko ng away, kung kelangang ako na lang yung lumayo eh ako yung lalayo, pero kung nagkagipitan na eh lalayo pa rin ako LOL

vernaloo said...

nahhhh hindi yun Boiling POint. Baka yun yung show ni...di ko alam name...basta about sa mga ugali ng Pinoy nowadays...tingnan natin kung ma feature pagmumukha mo sa tv lolz

lazarus said...

'live at peace with all men.'

kun ako yun, i'm sure i'll do what you did zherwin. But i'll ignore them.

jho said...

sheez! The nerve of some people! Sila na nga yung umagaw, sila pa ang galit. Buti na lang at nasa side mo si Manong Driver. First come, first serve dapat.

Toe said...

Galing! Galing! What a great story! Enjoyed reading this. Tama 'yon... magwawagi talaga ang kabaitan. Pikon-talo! Mwahahahahahahaha! Nasan na kaya yung mga taong 'yon? Baka hanggang ngayon, nag-aantay pa ng taxi.

Gina said...

If everyone were like you Zherwin , there will truly be 'peace on earth, goodwill among men'.. Sadly, in the real world, that's not the case.. Continue being the gentleman that you are and you're doing the world a big favor!

zherwin said...

verns, kung me makita ka sa tv na skinhead na nakangiti pero umuusok ang tenga, ako na yun. hehe

zherwin said...

lazarus, tama, isa pa mas maraming benefits kung ikaw na lang yung magpapakumbaba di ba? iwas gulo na, pogi points pa! :)

zherwin said...

jho, oo nga eh, baka masama lang talaga ang gising nila or they just had too much coffee sa breakfast hahaha.

zherwin said...

toe, hahaha baka kamo naghahanap pa rin ng makakaaway na papatol sa kanila. :)

zherwin said...

gina, thanks pero syempre just like everyone else, i also had my share with me being on the other side or being in a bad mood, buti na lang nagsasalubong lang yung kilay ko at di ako nangmumura. :)

melai said...

I sit and wait
i sit and wait
does an angel contemplate my fate and do they know
the places where we go
when we´re grey and old
´cos I´ve been told
that salvation lets their wings unfold
so when I’m lying in my bed
thoughts running through my head
and I feel that love is dead
I’m loving angels instead


isa sa fave ko yang kantang yan
......
parang dinalaw ako ng
angel kanina?

Mon said...

saludo ako sa'yo, cool na cool ka. Ako hinde masyadong naaapektuhan ng F*you or S**T, pero nagrereact ako sa P*mo. I don't know din, para yang attack command sa akin.

Sana matutunan ko din kung papaano maging cool. haaay buhay.

lady cess said...

and people wonder bakit magulo ang mundo. sana kinantahan mo, let their be peace on earth, andlet it begin with me...

kathy said...

Erai ne! :) Naku kung ako yun siguro nakipagsabayan na ako - mabilis kasi akong magreact lalo na pag alam ko na ako ang tama. :)

Seriously, that was an act worth emulating. Dapat sana bawat Pinoy ganon ang ugali, para hindi nakakastress ang buhay.

snglguy said...

I would have given the "up yours" to the guy who said, "pare wala ka namang pakisama!". That's practically an insult and a threat rolled into one. Anyway, it's good that you got your way in the end...

zherwin said...

melai, hmmm sa totoo lang di ko kaagad nakuha ibig mong sabihin hehehe pero serious, baka naman ang ibig mong sabihin ay dinalaw ako ng kapareho kong anghel? :)

zherwin said...

mon, cool na cool is an overstatement, nagkataon lang siguro na kahit male-late nako sa work ay maganda pa rin yung umaga ko at ako kasi hangga't makakaiwas sa gulo, iwas! takot ko lang hahaha :)

zherwin said...

lady cess, hmm, i should have done that, ang ganda nung song na yun kaso hindi bagay sa boses ko, para kasing naghahamon ako ng away kapag kumakanta so buti na lang hehe

zherwin said...

kathy, totoo ang gaan ng buhay kung walang gulo kaso di rin kasi natin mapigilan minsan ang magalit, so kung tayo yung mas nakakaintindi, intindihin na lang natin to balance things out, yin yang. :) but i am not saying i am good because i am not, mahaba lang talaga siguro pasensya ko. :)

zherwin said...

sngl, i believe i can still have my way without resulting to being rude and without putting myself into a fight, i really don't want to sound to be the very nice guy that i am not, it's just that if i'm going to answer back with as much rudeness as he had, it's not going to be the very ideal situation, so good thing i played the nice guy :)

fingertalks said...

WOW! congrats for being so cool zherwin. I admire people who have that kind of disposition to let go of people who are hotheaded. you just did the right thing.

"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
- Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

zherwin said...

fingertalks, i have this thinking that nothing can be settled if both parties are angry, shouting and cursing, it'll just worsen the situation. :) i am not really the mr. nice/mr. cool, i also have my share of being the hated one, human nature, i think. :)
