Mutilated money

YIn a one jeepney ride, I was out of coins and my next money bill is P500. Upon looking at my wallet I was able to find a P20 mutilated money. It was in my wallet for a long time already. It was originally part of our petty cash fund and was exchanged with my personal money. So at that moment in the jeepney I must choose between a crisp P500 bill or a mutilated P20 bill wherein my jeepney fare is only P16. Whichever I will choose I  might still be scolded by the jeepney driver because P500 is a big amount that he might not have change for it and the mutilated P20 bill might not be acceptable. I choose to pay the mutilated P20 bill but if only I had other smaller bills I would not pay it. Anyways upon paying it, the driver accepted it right away and gave me back my change. I was bothered and keep thinking about it. The driver might not be able to use that bill anymore but I hope he could still be able to do so. The bottom line of the story is to always check your available coins and bills before riding a jeepney. :)

Not a Gentleman

Gentleman are now few in these days. I would not believe on this for there are a lot of gentleman that still surrounds me but in one rainy jeepney, I was so disappointed with this man. It was raining and as expected, only few jeepneys are available in those times. I had been waiting in my usual spot just below the office for a jeepney. This particular man had been there already. Several minutes had already passed and several jeepneys  had already passby but were full of passengers. One jeepney stopped and this particular man together with the two ladies were running and chasing after the jeepney. This man really push his way to get inside the jeepney just to secure his seat even if he was already bumping the ladies. The other lady was not able to secure a seat so she step down from the jeepney. This shows only that in securing a seat inside the jeepney, expect that only few gentleman will arise.

New Route

We are now in our new office and it means a new route for me. My jeepney ride was lessen by one ride in going home and the jeepney would passby in  our office. I would just have to wait just below our office and I could get a ride in my way home. With this new route for me, I sometimes could not believe that I already get home. Unlike before that I have to pass by a mall before I get home. With this new route, it would be less expensive for me, less traffic, less hassle and more relax time.
