i spy with my little eye

funny things happened this morning on my way to work.

i take 2 trains going to work: MRT3 and LRT2, Blue and Purple lines respectively. rides on the train are pretty much uneventful, always packed with commuters in the morning rush hours but nothing really noteworthy happens during my commute. and today was my ‘lucky’ day, i guess. 😀

apparently, there was a pickpocket on the train. and it was on our coach! one passenger called attention to himself by holding the doors of the coach and security guards immediately came. i was seated while all this happened so i didn’t see who the passenger was. but i heard their conversations when i put down my headphones. (i listen to the radio while commuting)

“ituro mo kung sino.” said one. “ituro mo na. nakaka-abala ka sa ibang pasahero eh.” said another. i wasn’t sure if it was the guard or another passenger who said those things. some other passengers chimed in and said, “oo nga. natatagalan ang biyahe.” with a hint of irritation.

*sigh* i know nobody wants to be late for work. but, people, come on! utang na loob, ninakawan na yung tao, gaganunin niyo pa? ok, he may well have deserved being robbed because he was showing off his gadgets/wealth pero kailangan ganoon ang reaksyon? ugh!

another part of me thought about those who wanted the train to move already. hindi kaya sila yung dumukot kaya minamadali nila yung nadukutan? siyempre kung bumaba yung nadukutan para mag-complain sa security office sa station na yun and the train is given the OK sign to leave, edi nakatakas na yung magnanakaw? *sigh* making the victim panic could make him point to the wrong person/s. i hope hindi yung security guards ang nagmamadali… or sana they didn’t agree with those passengers who wanted the train to leave immediately. konting malasakit naman sa kapuwa.

finally, 2 or 3 persons were instructed to step out of the train coach and the train went on its way to the next station.

on my next train ride to Katipunan station via LRT2, this guy caught my attention:

una, uso ba talaga ngayon ang naka-salamin na walang salamin? i mean he wears just a frame for eyeglasses sans the lenses/eyeglasses! i found it really weird. then i noticed something else: the arms of the eyeglass frame (which i found out are called “temples”) were unusually large and thick. actually, not that unusually wide since most shades/tinted eyewear have wide arms but this person’s glasses were unusual. which made me suspect something was kinda fishy. or it could just be one of those MP3 player-eyeglasses. but they had those little dots in front of the endpiece!

paranoid ba ako? ahaha! anyway, that was a rather different morning commute today. a break in the monotony. and a couple of lessons learned din and realizations. 🙂

  1. I sympathize with the person who got robbed. I’d be panicking too if I was in his shoes. Arte lang nung mga ibang tao. Wouldn’t they do the same if they were in the same situation?

    Uso na nga ba yung nagsusuot ng salamin without the frames? Sounds idiotic to me. What’s your take on people who wear non-graded contacts? =)

  2. Marami na kasing mga taong alienated na sa mga nangyayari sa mundo labas sa makikitid na mundong ginagalawan natin, pulos sariling interes na lang ang iniisip, hirap nang mag-isip para sa iba o lumagay sa kalagayan ng iba.
    May nakasakay din ako sa aircon bus na isang mamang sige ang salita nang wala namang kausap; kesyo ang bagal-bagal daw magpatakbo ng driver, ilang oras na raw kaming bumibiyahe etc. I mean, alam naman nating ang risk ng pagsakay sa mga aircon buses ay mahahabang biyahe at pagsuong sa trapik, di ba? Ano ba ang maitutulong ng pagrarant niya? madadagdagan lang ang kabadtripan niya at ng kundoktor/driver dahil sa trapik.
    Napadaan lang…

  3. Nakakatuwa, andami ko ding nakikitang nakasunod ng glasses, without the glasses, I mean, what’s the point? Pang-porma nga naman siguro, oh well, this stuff bothers me too. Pero hindi ko nagets yung somthing fishy. Hehe, sorry.

    Nakakagulat na talaga ang mga tao ngayon. Masyado nating ina-isolate ang sarili natin. Ibig kong sabihin, sa mga ganitong bagay, wala na tayong pakialam sa ibang tao basta masunod na yung gusto natin. Baka nga naman kasi may lakad na sila. Pero nakakalungkot, kasi wala na yung malasakit natin sa ibang tao na tulungan siya. Hay..

    Magandang araw!
