I’ve had enough experience to say very very surely that Filipinos, in general, are annoying people. Sometimes, annoying and bordering on ridiculously stupid. Over at The Man Blog, we have an ongoing discussion about what we think or believe Filipinos should stop or start doing. I compiled my favorite replies (aka the ones I agree with the most as I agree with everything in there) into a list (because I love lists! And accutane reviews!) and here it is:
Filipinos need to stop borrowing money they cannot afford to pay back just to feed their neighbors during fiestas or to throw a grand celebration for a kid’s birthday. Spending, cooking, and feeding your neighbors is so unnecessary and birthdays happen every year. If you don’t have the money for it, don’t dig yourself a deeper hole by borrowing from someone.
Filipinos need to stop burning trash and leaves. You guys also need to stop spitting and throwing your trash anywhere and everywhere.
Filipinos need to stop believing that religion will save them from sickness and poverty. I’m an atheist so I’ll throw in a “Filipinos need to stop thinking that praying/prayer accomplishes anything.”
Filipinos need to start replacing plastic bags with paper or cloth bags. (You want to know why my office file cabinet is full of plastic bags? Because I can’t stand to throw them away and I figure I’ll be able find a way later to re-use them ’til they tear. If these were paper bags, I’d just go “LOL, see you later, future soil.”)
Filipinos need to stop being so damn sensitive so we could stop being the (more than) occasional international laughingstock. I am looking at you, Bong Revilla. There’s a reason people poke fun at us as a race and misplaced Filipino pride and baring our teeth at stupid things only makes us a bigger joke.
Filipinos need to start learning to hold their pee in until they find a proper toilet.
Filipinos need to start crossing at the proper pedestrian lanes and bridges. On this note, Filipinos need to start following all rules, even the simplest ones like where to park, where to cross, where to exit etc etc.
