Pic is from HERE. Thanks!
I was on my way to work on this rainy rainy Thursday and was anticipating the heavy traffic along EDSA already. So I went inside the car prepared... I have my fully charged cellphone on full blast playing songs from the phone's radio (Troopie's radio is busted). I was trying real hard not to be affected by the traffic+rain combo and just be cool and calm about it then....
"WANG... WANG... WAAAAAANG".
Three cars with red plate numbers are trying to get ahead of everybody. My initial thought was "Where the hell do you think you're going? Everyone's stucked... Might as well just 'go with the flow'". But noOoOooOo.. seems like they were really on a hurry. When 1 of the cars passed by, I tried to look at who's in it. Tadaaaaa.. just the driver. Then the 2nd car passed.... Tadaaaaaa.. just a driver and a bodyguard maybe. Then the 3rd car passed... it was darkly tinted so I wasn't able to look at the passenger. So I'm guessing, that's THE government official's car.
Got me thinking... maybe that's why our traffic problems never seem to be resolved. THEY don't experience traffic at all with all their Wang-Wang-ed cars. Aren't they public officials, ergo they're supposed to be one with the public. We (the public) experience traffic, I really think they should too. Maybe that way they'll focus more on clearing it up and fixing up roads. Agree?
*Biiiiiig Sigh*... Just my two cents for the day.
