I like how our country has priority lanes, seats and discounts for senior citizens. Today, I rode the LRT and my ticket malfunctioned and I was told o have it checked at the senior citizen counter. There was already a bunch of old ladies buying some tickets. And of course every time another lady came, I let her cut in front. See the problem with that system, LRT? Why not have a counter for ticket malfunctions?
Now this man lined up behind me and after another lady came in front, I started telling K, who was already out the gate to ask if there is a non senior citizen counter I can line up on. Man says to me, “Masingitan ka pa ulit dyan sisingitan na kita” and addressing K “Nakalabas ka na nagsasalita ka pa? Stop talking.”
By all means, old man, kung senior citizen ka, sumingit ka. Yun ang konsepto ng senior citizen lane. You think falling in line behind me and whining about me letting people cut in front of me makes you better than us? And how dare tell someone when she’s allowed to talk and ask a solution about a crooked system?
See, this is why “respect your elders” is an incorrect rule, it should be “respect every person around you.
Ugh. How can some people be so old and be so immature. Would you guys have acted differently?
