Si Kap, hardcore chinese yan. Ma-da-mi Ne-go-syo! ;) He’s living on the principle of tubong lugaw. Small earnings from multiple businesses. When you add it up, pwede na rin pang-jollibee! Hay! ;P
He has a side business of meatshop, paintshop, a bulilit gasoline station & a couple of jeepning pa-boundary inside the village (for residents & visitors). Mahilig sya sa malilit.. ako lang ang malaki sa buhay nya! :P
Last wednesday, one of his jeepney drivers called saying the vehicle he was driving was hit by a car as his passengers were alighting. Most of them were hurt and needed to be rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, both of us were out so we couldn’t assist right there & then.
The female driver (non resident) who didn’t have a driver’s license and was driving the vehicle of a friend/boss (resident), gave her voter’s ID to the guard & a flock of her friend’s (boss’) friends came to make usi. Na-rattle si village guard coz of the “big named” residents who came to her immediate rescue including one who claimed to be their company lawyer. Ang sabi pa daw “just file what you need to file I’m getting her out of here”. Wow. Iba na talaga ang big time.
|Magparamdam ka naman ale.
Kahit nalang para sa mga pasahero!
The village guard let the female driver go kasi nanginginig daw, as well as all the things inside the vehicle to another “friend” who rushed to her aide -when the tv show CSI obviously taught us not to touch anything from the crime scene! @_@ Sana man lang nag-radyo sya sa higher ups for guidelines.
I’m not saying there’s anything questionable in her (or the car’s) possession, but nanginginig? Pula ang mata? (hearsay) And hitting the jeep when it was obviously at a full stop on the side road reserved usually for alighting passengers (when based on her friend’s/vehicle owner’s address she was supposed to turn left?) ? Why the need to clean out EVERYTHING from the vehicle???
I feel for the guard. I know he’s like a teeny tiny helpless goldfish swimming among big bad sharks. Ano nga naman ang laban nya? Pero papaano naman kami?
When Kap finally got to the scene of the accident after an hour, the vehicles have been towed, wala nang guard, wala nang lady driver. Puno lang inabutan nya, maraming puno! So he proceeded to the precinct & stayed there ’til the wee hours waiting for the lady driver & the owner of the vehicle -or even the supposed company lawyer, to come. Awa ng Diyos hanggang ngayon impounded pa rin yung accord. No show sila.
His PUJ turned 90 degrees from the impact & the left wheel landed on top of the Honda Accord. Can you imagine how hard the jeepney was hit for it to turn & LAND on the car that hit it?? To think we residents are only allowed a maximum of 40/kph on minor roads & 60/kph on major roads. Wreckless driving talaga!
|The PUJ hit a tree as it slammed when it turned.|
|A 70-year old lady was alighting when the accord hit the PUJ (at a very high speed I must say!) at the shoulder of the street in front of the intersection.Putol ang daliri sa paa ni lola. So far she’s had 5 operations on her leg! @_@|
So in the duration of that 1 week, Kap received numerous letters indicating he has some financial obligations to meet since pasahero nya ang mga nasakan even though he’s just the operator. Liabilities kung baga. Siya pa ngayon ang dapat magbayad?! Eh pareho lang po tayong biktima mga sir..
|Lola’s son in law & lawyer summoned us to the barangay this morning for an amicable settlement.|
|The other party said they will shoulder the bill, meaning they knew they were at fault.
Paanong nag-180 degrees at kami na ngayon ang pinagbabayad? zOMG!
|Hindi man lang nag-ahit mukha tuloy siyang GOON! @_@|

Sana, huwag umandar ang pera dito. Money talks. And in this village where money is not a rare commodity, paubusan ng kayamanan ang mangyayari. Pataasan ng ___! palakihan ng ___! I just want justice! Don’t let them get away. PLEASE!
|All is quiet along Guyabano street…|
|Wow may benz.. siguro naman kaya nyong ipagamot yung 5 pasahero pati na yung drivier...|
