And My Name Is...

I was walking my way home when I got a glance of  the electrical posts on my way studded with papers with different ads. What got me into thinking was these "tubero" posts... No. Not that it was too much but what I noticed was why does it have names on it? 



Does it even matter if a "Ramon" or an "Eddie" or perhaps a "Jade" fixes your faulty sink or your leaking faucets? Would a "Ramon" do better than an "Eddie" and would a "Jade" be the best of them all when it comes to twisting tubes and preventing leaks? It just doesn't make sense. Surely, when the guy arrives in your house, you could ask him his name. Or perhaps after you made the call, you could've asked for the plumbers name...



But the greener side of me had thought of a very feasible reason for the alleged name inclusion in the said ads. Hmmm. I haven't tried calling these numbers nor asking for one but it could be true. And how does the word "tubero" sound green to you? Sounds green to me! 



Would the name give you a feel? Or a hint? Hmmm... Let's say... the name "Andrew" is on the tubero ad... Sounds like your boy-next-door guy for hire? Who'll make the most out of foreplay and before getting it on... Or how about "Eddie"? Hmmm... Some forty-ish, beer-bellied feel? Or "Jade"? Feels like a tranny-dominatrix type... Scary!

I tried calling one of the numbers, see what happens. Unfortunately, the phone went dead. I'll try next time..

So the name "Andrew" sounds like a boy-next-door guy for hire who will make the most out of foreplay and before getting it on, huh? Interesting take. *wink*

Romel seems a sexy sounding name. Mukhang tama nga yung legend tungkol sa mga tubero natin.

I vaguely remember an episode of GMA7's Imbestigador which focused on said "tuberos". Yes, some of them are peddling more than just their plumbing skills.
