Hard Luck


So I was in a jeepney’s passenger seat when a traffic enforcer flagged us down to ask for the driver’s license.

Loading on green light. Violation.

The driver didn’t have a license to present. Turned out it was already confiscated yesterday. The driver was apologetic and even thanked the traffic enforcer probably for not losing his cool. It was depressing though. I could see the pained expression as the driver stuffed another ticket into that plastic bifold where his license used to be probably thinking how he’s going to pay for it.

There was nothing to say. Earning money is hard but your typical jeepney driver is not above the law.

God bless you kuya. Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. -aB
