delivery blues

buwisit masyado kahapon!!! this is what happened:
i’m a jeds operator (jollibee express delivery service) here… which
means i handle all the calls for delivery and assemble the orders of
every customer… i’m also a store marketing assistant… anyway, i’ll
tell you later about my day to day routine… let’s focus on what
happened during a particular delivery…

after accepting an order from a customer, i assembled and finished all
the needed preparations… i was waiting for our rider for he still
delivered another order to another customer… but since time was
running out: standard for delivery is 30 minutes, the only option was
me going to do it…

it wasn’t that hard… all i had to do was go to the room and present
it… (DUH! how hard can that be???)… while going up to the 5th
floor… the elevator opened and i was faced with a blank wall…
actually, plywood lang na tinapakan yung daan para hindi makapasok…
i went up one floor and tried to go down by a spiral staircase… it
was strange because the stairs was really small and wasn’t appropriate
for guests or normal beings to use… ‘kala ko na minumulto na ako…
para kasing pang-escape kung may sunog… when i got there, all i saw
were scattered garbage! at walang mga rooms! i tried to find a room
509… but kahit isa… wala akong nakita! parang parking space na
medyo madilim at kalat na kalat… nirerenovate pa siguro yon…
(parang minumulto na talaga ako!) yipes! i soon found another passage
back to the 6th floor and asked for some assistance…

when i asked where room 509 was… the lady didn’t know (she’s a bit
old)… and then finally i asked what hotel this is… and then
————damn it!!!————– mali pala yung hotel na pinasukan
ko!!! aaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!! buwisit talaga! i went down without any
hesitation while not looking too obvious na napahiya ako… shit!
wrong hotel talaga!!! and to topi it all off… pinagalitan pa ako
kasi na-late ako sa paghatid sa delivery!!! shoot!…


i made a stupid question to a grade schooler when i was asking on
who’s the recipient of another delivery:

boy: para kanino yang jollibee??? (he innocently asked)

me: para sa nag-birthday…

boy: ay oo! kilala ko kung kanino yan! kay lilian (or something like it)

me: babae yan??

boy: ha? walang babae rito.

…………. stupid me!!! i was in an all-boys
school!…………….. buti na lang rin bata rin yung tinanong ko…
