I, ME, MINE

Me and my son went to a big Supermarket here to buy a new washing machine. After we got the unit we wanted, I fell in line sa cashier for Electronics and Household Appliances.

When my turn came, one kababayan suddenly cut me and presented his item, a Blender to the cashier. The cashier told him that he is not on the line. Kabayan started making a scene saying that it is only a small item and only 1 piece. He was loudly arguing with the cashier.

I told him politely, “kabayan, baka naman puwede ka nga pumila.. lahat kami rito nakapila e, kahit ba iisa lang item.. tingnan mo nga itong sa likod ko, babae pa.. pero nakapila.” (Dito kasi, binibigyan ng courtesy ang babae, pinapauna sa pila, but when I told the saudi woman na mauna na siya, sumagot na okay lang sa kanya. )

He sneered at me and said, “e di ba sinabi ko naman na iisa ito at nagmamadali ako.. ”

I replied, “lahat tayo ay nagmamadali rito.. pinoy ka di ba? di ka naman lahi ng _____ na walang respeto sa kapuwa..”

He retorted, “ang yabang mo naman.. ”

Para matigil na lang, sinabi ko.. “kinukunan ka ng video nung isang arabiana, tiyak na sisikat ka sa social media bukas..”

At dinagdagan ko pa .. “ang masama kung sa pulis ipadala ang video, di ka na sisikat..”

He stopped and meekly walked towards the end of the line.
