Commuting can be a nightmare in Cebu, although I heard it’s worse in Manila. Commuting in Cebu might give you a headache or worse, you might faint. So be sure to bring some medicine ’cause you might experience these 9 things in one single day:
Oh, so you’re waiting for a ride to SM? Just take a seat as several overloaded SM jeepneys pass by while the sun is slowly roasting your skin. There’s no waiting shed and you’re sweating profusely, or worse, it starts to rain.
It’s not even full — it’s overloaded. You can’t even kapyot and it’s getting late at night. Good luck if you’re a kol senner agent!
So it’s already 2 AM and no more jeepneys in sight. You hail for a taxi and behold, he’ll ask for ‘extra fare’ since it’s already dawn. Suppy & Demand can be a bitch.
The street becomes a catwalk for beggars when the traffic light is red. These beggars come in all varieties — from a pregnant woman carrying a baby to greasy kids to someone who brings their blind family member. And you’re out of coins.
And the police force still hasn’t caught these guys. *Sigh* So be always vigilant especially if you own an expensive smartphone!
The other lane is smooth-flowing while your lane is congested. I heard on Facebook that the traffic light is to blame for this.
You have to be early on the jeepney terminal ’cause the driver’s gotta make sure the jeep’s full before sailing. (Oh, walo-walo ni, kuwang pa’g tagsa!!!)
Why are they simultaneously fixing or widening the road now that election is coming? Hmmm…
This is the worst. And wearing rain boots isn’t fashionable. God help you if you’re stranded, so pag-COC lang sa!
