Highway Robbery

I met with some friends at the Alabang Town Center last night.

Going home, I passed through an unmanned toll gate going into the South Superhighway.

When I reached the Magallanes toll plaza, the teller asked for my entry card.

I had none.

I argued my case. No one was distributing cards at the entry point!

She said she can’t do anything. I have to pay as if I lost the card.

I wanted to stand my ground, but the queue behind me was getting longer. And it was getting past midnight.

It was useless arguing with the teller. It was not her fault.

I could hear the guerilla in my head grumbling and kicking - “Think of the many others on the same shoes! Someone must stand up for them!”

I didn’t. I grudgingly paid. Damn!

All I could say was “!#&@!!!-ina niyo! Ayusin niyo serbisyo nyo!” Then sped off.

As I arrived home, I tried fending off sleep. I was really pissed off.

So I brought out my long-kept dusty chest underneath my bed and got three black candles and five incense sticks. As I lit them, I muttered my most powerful incantations.

Magkabuhol-buhol sana ang bituka ng mga tao sa PNCC na nabubuhay sa panloloko ng iba”. Wushooooshhhh!

Ako rin po, may papakulam. Sendan ko kayo ng lists! Sana sinama ninyo na rin sa incantation ninyo na maging entry card lahat ng taga-PNCC. wahehehe!

Gypsy said...

Ay, sideline mo pala ang mangkulam? Andami mong pwedeng i-target no! Wawa naman yong toll collector--yong nasa congress na lang tsaka senado ang i-target mo...*evil grin*

hmmm hindi ka kaya napadaan inadvertently sa isang e-pass lane kaya walang tao? napadaan na rin ako once sa isang such unmanned toll booth- na walang barrier ha, yung tumutupi-tupi- but i awoke just in time para umatras at lumipat sa kabilang toll booth na may clerk...

as a government employee, it disheartens me to hear stories like that. inefficient public servants degrade the image of the government. masama na nga ang kondisyon ng pulitika ng Pilipinas, pinapalala pa lalo ng mga corrupt at tiwaling empleyado ng gobyerno. you should have confronted the PNCC branch head, it would make a difference!

well, ipagdasal na lang natin sila... at ipagtirik ng tatlong itim na kandila. hehehe!

intsik said...

hahahahaha good luck na lang sa mga na voodoo mo. hahahaha

Akala mo malala na yan? Hindi!!

Mas malala pa PLDT! Hanapin mo yung logo nun sa blog ko tapos click mo para mabasa mo yung ranting ko dun.

TIP: type mo sa Google/Yahoo: "PLDT sucks"

Endless 'yan pare. Kulang sa seryosong tao ang Pilipinas. :(
