Jeepney Ride

one of the facts i mention when i get tagged is that i would rather walk than ride the jeepney. but i do ride the jeepney. when i ride the jeep before it was not a big deal, but now...

four hours of bus ride would give you and your companion a chance to talk anything and everything under the sun. that's what happened to jason and i when we went to Anawangin. we talked about everything, as in everything, even economics! so don't be surprised that we talked about riding the jeepney. i remember telling him that as much as possible i don't ride the jeep. that i just walk home from the office than ride a jeepney. and why is it?

(1) i really think that i smell more polluted when i ride the jeep
(2) i just don't like the feeling of having your skin touch your seatmate who is sweaty

i'm not being mean. i'm just being honest. and i'm not being maarte or judgmental. i still ride the jeepney. when i go the prayer meeting, i sometimes ride the jeep. so why am i writing this and sounds defensive? it's because of this picture...

it was taken inside a jeepney. that's me in green! and i did not just photoshop myself there. and to clear to Yen that i do ride the jeepney.

is my preference not to ride the jeep makes me maarte?

and if there's a jeep from west ave. to coron, i'll definitely ride that! it's an airconed jeep, right?

Well, there is no jeepney in Norway, but I think I know what you mean and do agree with you.

You look cute in that picture - new sunglasses too? ;-)

Wishing you a great end to your week!

True - sitting beside a person sweating all over could be a drag esp if the person doesn't use deodorant hehe :) Hmmm.. Payat natin ngayon ah :)

and who would want to ride a jeepney if the driver is smoking, the other passengers are also smoking, and 10 persons would be forced to sit on a good-only-for-8-persons jeepney bench? hay commuters life in the philippines.

Miss ko na rin mag jeep kaya lang hirap minsan pag naka ayos yung hair mo then sasalubungin mo yung hangin.

We all have our own likes and dislikes, no big deal about that. Others will respect you for the things you don't want to do. Thanks for the post. God bless.

Now lang ako nasasanay mag-jeepney. sa taas ng presyo ng gas, we'd rather commute than use our car.
