Older Doesn't Necessarily Mean Wiser

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 8:58 AM
Since January 2009, we have been living in my parents' house in Pampanga. Jay and I opted to give up our tiny apartment in Bulacan for two reasons: 1. because my dad is always out of the house and always asking us to house-sit that we thought that it will be less stressful to just live in the house than to just come spend the night and lug everything everytime that happens and 2. my mom asked us to just move in because of reason number 1. Today, Dad again is out of the house because he has to attend to the anihan in our farm. Jay was supposed to go but work prevented hinm from doing so (and who will be with me in the night naman diba?). Anyway, so I go to work today commuting. Our office is inside a big compund and so we have to take a tricycle to go there. In the jeepney ride, a woman of 40-50 years old in mint green uniform is apparently working in the same compound as I was and so she alighted the jeep with me. In can be seen that there are no tricycles available in the terminal and there is a somehow line formed in it. Somehow because the line was so crooked that you can't distinguish who follows who really. The only thing distinguishable is the end and first of the line. And so I take the my place in the end of the line knowing it is the right thing to do. And what does this woman do who came AFTER me? Take her place BEHIND THE FIRST ONE ON THE LINE! I can't believe the gal! You will think she could have known better being a woman of her age but no, she doesn't care if she is stepping on some toes as long as she won't be late. I wanted to tell her that there is a line but the people she overtook are not saying anything so I kept my mouth shut. Later I found out that this 40 something woman in a mint green uniform works at The Department of Education. And that, my friends, is what made it worse. Imagine our kids' teachers being taught values by someone like that. No wonder a lot of people don't have good manners these days!
