One bad waiting day
A glimpse of engineer-einjel's journal
June 27, 2011 Monday
I went out of our house for work. I live in QC and I work in Manila. It was a Monday. There were a lot of people waiting for either jeep, bus, or FX. The crowd was composed of students, employees, etc.
The people were competing for a ride towards each of their destinations. The buses, jeeps and FX were almost always full. I was still waiting as I actively compete with the people around me.
I wasn't able to get a ride still.. Thinking that I might be late for work. Sigh.
Fidgeting while observing how poor and bad the public transport is. Frowning, how easy it is to curse but I ended up praying instead and speaking a blessing for the drivers, the roads, the pedestrian, vehicles, and the transport environment.
I can't help but wish to go back to Korea where everything in the roads was in order. Yes, I just came back from a trip abroad and I can't help but compare what I see at the moment to what I saw and experienced there. My heart grieved with how bad our public transport is for the commuters. For taxpayers, this isn't fair.
I was finally on board an FX. Thinking may be that is why God called me in this transport sector. I gotta move on as I hope for the best.
