This is why I hate politics. We had the Barangay Elections last month. The sitting Barangay Captain was running again. I had no problems with him, and was quite helpful when I needed Barangay stuff so I had no problem voting him in again. On election day he was joking some distance away from the voting center if he was going to break out the fireworks or not. It was 10am and I thought it was still a little too early to tell.
Well, he lost, in a matter of a few hundred votes. Thems the breaks, but that’s the democratic process.
Isn’t it damned curious that since the election last October 29, the garbage trucks stopped coming to our street? It’s been more than TWO WEEKS since the last one passed by. Before October 29 they used to pass by a couple of times a week.
Does the garbage collection depend on the whims of the Barangay Captain? What the hell? What, is THIS revenge for not voting the guy? Is this his telling us, “This is what you get for not voting me, bastards.”
How petty. How FUCKING petty.
