images Bad dayThis is such a bad day for me and what a way to start the month. I’m working as a call center agent here in Makati, Philippines and my shift usually starts at 7:00 PM until 4:00 AM. When I was about to leave the office, I remember that I need to withdraw some cash. I did and got into the bus. Since it was Sunday here in Manila, few people rode the bus. It was cold then and suddenly I fall asleep. At the back of my mind I know that I am aware of what is happening around me, So it didn’t bother me to open my eyes and look around.

The unexpected happened. In about 25 minutes I’m ready to get off the bus. I fixed myself and checked my things, I was shocked when I saw my pants slashed. B*llsh*t, I got robbed. I immediately went to the bus driver and discussed it with him, but they weren’t able to provide anymore details. I am really pissed and blame myself for letting this thing to happen.

To my fellow “kababayans“, please let this be a friendly reminder. Especially to my colleagues who work at night. Be alert always. I’m not gonna disclose anymore how much I lost but all I can say is, it really hurts.
