Polo

me and my officemates were in the pantry, taking our work lunches when i get to notice this guy on my far right. i already had a glance of him even before we settled on our tables.
our usual lunch went on. noisy. feast-like. and happy. then the guy, stood up. looks like he's about to go. and yes he was. his lunch is done.
when he stood up. me and a friend noticed a paper that he left on the chair that he used to sit. we immediately noticed that is a 50-peso bill.
"uy naiwan nya!"
"uu nga. kunin mo!"
"ikaw na kaya..."
"sauli mo"
me, with the goodness in me predominating the devil bitch in me decided to take the bill and return it to the guy who left it.
i stood up, took the bill and walked towards the way the guy went. i instantly saw him walking towards the other end of the hallway.
with no choice left, i shouted..
"excuse me.."
no response..
"excuse me, white polo..."
then he looked back. finally, i caught his attention. i approached him. and before i could hand out his 50-peso bill, he questioned...
"white polo?"
i handed him the bill and immediately turned back and walked away. and i started mumbling words...
"anu ba yan, instead na magpasalamat, nagawa pang kwestyunin ung pagtawag ko sa kanya!"
he was wearing a "white polo barong"

@prinsesamusang :: sya lang ung nasa hallway. wala ng ibang tao.


@archiemd :: ngek? ako colorblind. malabo lang mata ko, pero di colorblind... (i knew you were talking about him, he told me once that he was colorblind..)

ArchieMD said...

@ looking for the source: sayang... i have this certain magnetic intergalactic attraction with color-blind people...

because for me love is even more colorful when it is color-blind.

whatever he's trying to imply on the question (stupid or not) u should have given him the benefit of the doubt. he might be trying to open a conversation and u just shut him up by just handing him the bill. didn't u even said something like, "u left this"? he could have express his gratitude then.

btw, thanks for dropping by my blog.:)

odin hood said...

baka next time you see him mag-apologize siya .... hehe

Looking For The Source said...

@thetripper :: i assure you he wasnt trying to open a conversation. you should have seen the look on his face when he said "white polo?", its more like he's saying "duh". ha ha. anyways. thanks for dropping by.

@odin hood :: balik na lang nya ung 50 pesos! nyahah

"white polo?" = 3 syllables

"thank you!" = 2 syllables

I guess sometimes its weird when we are reduced to what we wear or the way we look. Alam ko naman wala kang intensyon i-reduce sya sa suot nya.

Yun lang siguro pakiramdam nya. He might have preferred calling him "kuya", "mama" or definitely "pogi". Hahaha.


Salamat pala sa pagbisita.

Looking For The Source said...

@niel camhalla :: pwede rin "pogi"... malay mo.. nyahahha..

thanks for dropping by!
