This is probably not my week.
- We got into a vehicular accident last Monday night. While waiting for
the traffic to move, suddenly a jeepney appeared at our rear-right
hitting us. Rather than stopping, the jeepney driver drove away and
worsening the damage by hitting our 2 right-side doors.
- I applied for police report that night and was scheduled to get it this afternoon at their precinct. I have
to travel 45 minutes from home just to get there since the area where
the accident happened was within their jurisdiction. When I came at
their office this afternoon, the other policeman told me to come back on
Friday or call first because I go there to claim it since I can only
get it with the other officer whom I had transaction with the night
before. I always thought that getting police report is easy and can be
claimed the day I apply for it. I paid 200 pesos to wait for 2 days to
get it but then, told to wait for another 2 days. And yet, it’s still
not sure if I can have it then. Wow.
- Then tonight, I called
for pizza delivery. I waited for an hour and a half and still no pizza
guy. Then I followed up with their hotline who told me that the branch
assigned to do the delivery will call me about the details. So I waited
for another half an hour before I got a call from the hotline telling me
that there was some "miscommunication" from their side and from the
branch. Apparently, there's a policy with the branch that they are not
delivering at our barangay after 6pm due to "security reasons". Ok, so
they are delivering at some distressed areas around the city proper but
not within areas not too far from the perimeter yet subdivisions are
abound. Anyway, I don't have problems with that policy if they want to
uphold it but having us waiting for 2 hours and just getting "sorry"
from them about what happened isn't good.
things might have been worse. So still, I thank you Lord. I just hope
that one day, majority of Filipinos will learn the true meaning of
“customer service” and “road courtesy”.
