I've been working from 6am to 3pm for over a month now. I do like the schedule because there's hardly any traffic going to and fro work. The only con is that I now take a cab going to work which explains the increase in my expenses.

But nevertheless, it's fine.

What really irks me are the cab drivers.

I can't even count how many times I've hailed a cab only to have the cab driver reject me and say, "Ay malayo, ayoko", "Hindi ako dadaan diyan" or "Traffic papunta dun eh"(I leave the door open and walk away when this happens. It gets a lot better if he stopped at the middle of the road. Haha!).

And then sometimes, they name the price of the fare instead of using their meters. And what's worse is they jack up the price and make silly excuses like the never-ending increase in gas prices.

I mean, isn't that the reason for the increase in cab fare prices, to compensate for the surge in fuel rates? These cab drivers and cab companies should be grateful that the government granted them that while we, puppies (Poor Urban Professionals), get salary increases as often as it rains on the Sahara.

I was running late for work this morning and there was this cab driver waiting outside his cab so I told him where I was going...

"Ma'am, 100 po ha?"

"Nyeah, ok ka lang?", was my instant reply. (Kasi naman it's only 60-70 pesos going to work)

And then he gives me this really smug look.

This ticked me off sooo badly that I said, "Alam niyo Manong, makakarma din kayo."

And he glances at me and smirks.


"Balang araw, Manong, pag may sakit kayo o yung isang kapamilya niyo, sasabihin sa inyo ng doctor o ng hospital na hindi nila kayo matutulungan kasi wala kayong pera o kulang yung pambayad niyo. Tandaan niyo yan. Makakarma ka din."

And then I immediately found another cab, hailed it and left him there--hopefully, thinking about what I said.

about moi

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for dinner.
