a sign of ignorance

This has been around the blog world for sometime already and others are sick of it already about this issue that nobody wants to talk about it anymore. I am supposed to work on my assignment but since the computers that we have at work doesn't have speakers I decided to view the it again. This was regarding the Boyet Fajardo incident. I was really full of rage the first time I saw the video and read a blog about him that I tried opening his website several times but I think he shot it down. I just couldn't help but get angry at him even though he hasn't done me any harm. I watched the video several times and I have to hold my tears. I felt pity of how he let the cashier kneel down and apologize to him for doing his job. Maybe this was the first time that he used a credit card that is why Mr. Fajardo doesn't know the procedure. I don't think that Marc Jacobs or Oprah would do such a thing if the merchant would ask for identification from them. I really wanted to cry while watching the video.

I was thankful to Mr. Fajardo though because I can recall one incident as told by my friend that a cashier was asking for his identification while using his cash card which requires a pin before it works and the cashier still asked for his identification and this friend of mine becomes irate because of that. I was then dreaming of having a credit card then would shout at cashiers if they would ask for my identification since as I observed sometimes these cashiers are judge you as well of how you look whether you are wealthy or not. You could have observed as well that there are times specially if the buyer looks so credible or someone that looks like a wealthy person that they don't bother asking for identification but there are some that would ask for two id's if you look poor which could sometimes insult you. The incident has given me a lesson to remain humble and respect everyone and to remember always the golden rule in dealing with other people. I think I am becoming rude each, I forget or doesn't show a slightest respect to others but this incident has brought my feet back on the ground. Sometimes you really feel insulted if people doubted you. You have that craving to be known, to be someone, more famous than Britney Spears or Madonna and be more powerful, more powerful than a nuclear reactor.


  1. oh he's quite a bitch really.

    being so fucked up with all the things he had done during the day is not an excuse on why he should act like that to those people. daig pa niya ang isang baboy-baboy na nga siya! IBOYCOTT ANG BAKLA! BWAHAHAHA.

    just watched him say sorry last night at TV PATROL, but the case is still on charge. hope he'll be punished :)

  2. i feel so out of the loop. i had to do a little research before i could comment haha

    i suppose people in stores can be a little bitchy but nothing could justify that man's actions. he gives gay people a bad name, just more coal to feed the gay stereotype fire.

  3. it all boils down to one word: respect...

  4. excerpt from a blog i searched in the internet:

    “Mga leche kayo! Hindi niyo ako kilala? Ako si Boyet Fajardo! At itong p*t**ina na babaeng ito (pointing to a lady officer) at ang baklang ito (pointing to the cashier) ay walang kwentang mga tao! I want them fired!”

    -I wonder who's boyet fajardo anyway?
