I am writing this article to have awareness on every foreigner that comes here. A few days ago I was at the mall with my nephew Deo and my niece Glenda. My niece Glenda still had more stuff to buy so I told Deo that we will just wait for Glenda outside in the car at the parking lot.
As you notice here in the Philippines at the parking lot of every mall a van or a small bus has a parking space for the out of town trips. A few meters distance away I notice a car that was parking just like us. A few minutes later I saw a foreigner walking across and come to the direction on the parked car thats just ahead of us. As he came near to the car I thought the car was just waiting for him with his driver in it. The car move out for the van with a lot of passengers would get out. The foreigner all of a sudden kicked the car. Me and my nephew were just looking at each other in shock. We thought really that he owned the car and the driver just did not noticed him and moved the car a little as soon as he was approaching. But then we didn’t think that he owned car because he would not have kicked it if he owned it. Plus, he keeps walking away and went toward the other side of the parking lot. I didn’t know then where he went because he was no longer in sight.
Anyway, lucky for that foreigner that the driver did not get out of the car and punch him hard on the face. To be honest I am going to side with the driver on that. The foreigner was wrong to be kicking the car. The car was privately owned by somebody. I think it was just the driver of the family who was inside, I know if the owner was the one driving there was going to be a confrontation happening in that moment. Stupid foreigner he didn’t even think of what will happen to him if the driver got out and fought. Just by looking at that foreigner he looks like he had a bad day. The unhappy one here.
Later that afternoon we went to another mall. We went to the deli section because I was wanting to buy some stuff for Bob. Ahead of us there I saw an old foreigner and his wife they both must be in their mid 70’s. We let them order ahead of us, me and my niece just waited at the other end of the counter. I saw that those people were in the cashier the other saleslady helped us then. We told her what we want and wanted to pay now. The foreigner and his wife were still at the counter. I sat down at the chair I just let my niece pay for our merchandise. While sitting I was hearing the foreigner yelling GO, GO, GO. So I look at them and saw the girl running. At first I thought it was his helper, but later found out it was the cashier he was yelling at. While the cashier was gone the foreigner sat down not too far from me and I could hear him talking to his wife. I could tell his really a demanding fellow. A few minutes later the cashier came back.
The foreigner stood up and went to the cashier counter. Near the cashier area my niece was standing talking to the saleslady about some product. I then saw the foreigner pushing my niece and telling her to move away. I was not going to react if my niece was blocking him at the counter, but I could see that my niece was far from the cashier and had some space for him to pay.
I didn’t really like what I’m seeing I then asked my niece what did that foreigner say and was he pushing you? My niece was kind of scared because she could tell I was kind of mad. I already said that he has no right to be pushing you or touching you. My niece just said that I think he thinks that I am wanting to pay ahead of him and he just doesn’t want that. My niece did not want to pay ahead of him because she knows that the old foreigner was there ahead of us.
I think the wife knew that I was already mad and grab her husband and left right away. When my niece was paying the saleslady told us that they are used to the attitude of that old guy. He has been going there for a while now and that’s really his attitude. He is really rude and demanding. They said that the wife really is a nice lady. They just know by now how to handle that old guy. They said if not for the wife they would have already complained to the owner of the shop. The wife really is a nice lady so they just put up with him.
Gosh I saw some of these kinds of foreigners here. The one that I witnessed at the immigration a year or so ago really open up my eyes. I just hope that at the end these people will not be in big trouble here because they get mad easy. Hopefully lots of people still have the patience to have them here. Good luck to them.
