or the most part, if you’re not dodging gunfire right now and you’re reading this in the comfort of your home, the office, or your tablet, it’s easy to think that life is good. That’s a great outlook to have, by all means!
Unfortunately, there are some everyday little annoyances that we’ve come to accept as part of life, and we hardly even put up a fight with it anymore. We’re just too damn tired to bother. Don’t think for a moment that this is exclusively a Pinoy thing, though: it’s a problem for everyone.
Worst of all, any positivity we manage to muster up during the day quickly gets eroded by these 8. And this is why we can’t have nice things.
8. People who say “LOL” in person.
7. People who kick your seat in the cinemas.
6. Cab drivers from hell.
I’ve once had the displeasure of waiting from 9PM to 2AM in Megamall for a cab because I made the mistake of going out on December 23.
5. People who assume everyone else not wearing a turban is Catholic.
You don’t even have to go that far: just look at the non-Catholic Christians who cringe whenever people wonder why they’re not greeting “Mama Mary” a happy birthday on their Facebook timelines, as if doing that is somehow a measure of being a good Catholic. Here’s a hint: just because the Philippines is a country made up of 80 to 90 percent Catholics doesn’t mean everybody else is chopped liver. And that goes double for the government, who’s supposed to respect non-Catholics just as much as Catholics, yet insist on setting aside some of our tax money for chapels and masses.
Nobody’s saying you shouldn’t practice your religion or let nobody know what you believe in, and let it guide how you go about your life. But the government is constitutionally not allowed to do that on behalf of all of us, okay?
4. Stupid questions.
I don’t even understand how a woman could ask if the child she’s carrying is really hers. I just don’t. There’s just something about people who do nothing but ask stupid questions that makes you wonder they’re the reason why aliens have yet to establish contact with us, because they took one look at these people and concluded that intelligent life doesn’t exist on this planet.
3. Friends who fool you into attending an MLM pitch.
2. People who cut in lines.
It’s called a line, you doofus. Now move to the back!
1. Comments sections.
An actor beats his addictions and finally goes clean? He’s a no-good has-been!Ara Mina is now a mom-to-be? Unmarried slut! Whore!A video about women empowerment? Go back in the kitchen, you spawn of the Illuminati!
I wonder exactly how many of these brave, brave souls are willing to repeat these words without the anonymity of the internet protecting them?
