Something to start your week. While I get my bearings, groceries and recover from a near harrowing week of work in Cebu, have a good chuckle or two.
At the Cebu Domestic Airport terminal last night, there were hundreds of passengers waiting for their flights, several of which were delayed, and it was as packed as a wet market. Over the PA system the announcement went something like this…
“Zest Air flight xxx is now on its final call for boarding. Please board now and have a REFRESHING FLIGHT“… I realize Zest Air is owned by a fruit juice (with lots of sugar) magnate, so perhaps that was the connection, but since WHEN has an airline flight ever been REFRESHING?! Perhaps if they had showers on board and offered free bars of Irish Spring with lime zest that might make a little more sense.
Meanwhile, of the oddest things asked of our sales crew at Zubuchon, while pointing at packaged lechon, the potential customer says “Miss, is your lechon cooked or raw?” to which our quick but polite Manager THOUGHT but DID NOT REPLY “If it’s cooked, it’s lechon, if it’s raw, it’s baboy”… He was having a bad hair day. :)
And finally, also last night while waiting for my 1.5 hour delayed Cebu Pacific flight (which I have sworn several times not to patronize after 3-4 awful experiences) which I had to take on short notice, I had to take a leak, and entered a surprisingly empty looking bathroom. No one at the urinals, no one at the sinks, but a bit of stirring in a closed cubicle. I started on my journey which is hard to interrupt, and this is what I heard:
“It’s hard no? HARD? Kip going, kip going…
Stand up now, STAND UP…”
So what are your evil minds thinking now?!?
“See, dat’s your pupu Junyor, your PUPU.”
Hahaha. I kid you not, I could have died laughing. More posts up soon.
