MY KABABAYAN'S PADALA
I am just waiting for the sun to set
and I will be heading to the airport for
my trip to Manila today, Monday 04th.
I need to see my kid brother.

As usual friends from work came to ask
me to bring some of their "Padala"
which I am willing, provided it will not
inconvenince me.

Padala One:
"Mel, isang LETTER envelope lang. kailangang
kailangan ng aking mother this envelope
."
Dating si envelope.
Yes, it was a small letter envelope, but
the envelope is taped to a shoe box, which
weight at least five pounds, because there
are at least four big bottles of Calcium
supplementary tablets inside.

NO.... SORRY, I CANNOT TAKE THAT!!!!

Padala Two:
"Pare, isang manila envelope lang. It will not
eat a lot of space in your suitcase."

Dating si manila envelope.
Yes, it was a manila envelope but what is
inside is a "Lapida" that has to be placed
at the grave of the Father at Manila Memorial.

NO.... SORRY, I CANNOT TAKE THAT!!!!

Padala Three:
"Mel, this is just a small envelope w/my personal
check inside. My sister need this for her school
tuition."

Dating si envelope.
Yes, it was a small letter envelope with a check
inside, but the check was written to me, and this
co-worker said that I just give his sister cash
when I arrived and keep the check.
"Paano kung tumalbog ang check?"

NO... SORRY, I CANNOT TAKE THAT!!!!

Padala Four:
"Mel, this is just a very small envelope with cash
money inside
."
So, I said fine with me, as long as the envelope
will be sealed infront of me so that I really
know how much cash is inside the envelope.
The envelope arrived at my desk, it was sealed
and I called this person at his station, and asked
him to open the envelope. Refused to open the
envelope said it has been sealed.
"Wala ka bang Tiwala sa akin?" he said.
So I said..."wala!!"
The the cousin came to me and told me, that
she was really running after me not to accept
the envelope, alledged to have money, cuz
her cousin has the habit of saying there is
cash inside, but in reality there is no cash.

Tamaan sana ng kidlat.

Padala four:
"Mel, cel fon lang ang padadala ko. My son said
this is expensive in Pinas
".
Celfon arrived at my cubicle, I was not there,
it was left on top of my desk. It was in a clear
ziploc bag, and there are six cel fon inside.

NO... SORRY, I CANNOT TAKE THAT.

The moral of the story.
We Pinoy has the habit of asking favors, and we
are very assuming. Then, if the request was not
granted, then these people will not talk to you
anymore.

If they dont talk to me....I will be the happiest
man at work. Not being botherd by any Pinoy.

HANGGANG DITO NA LAMANG PO...
AT MARAMING SALAMAT SA MGA NAASAR SA AKIN
AT WORK.
