The Filipino Attitude

I always believed that Filipinos have this "opportunist" attitude. By "opportunist," I mean they always seem to be very aggressive in every circumstance that would probably be beneficial to them. Sometimes this is what I call the "this-may-be-good-for-me-therefore-I-should-grab-this-opportunity" attitude.Well anyway, who wouldn't? But what sets the Filipino apart from all the other races is the MEANS to get what they want. Some people break their moral and ethical standards, or even go as far as breaking the law just to grab that "wonderful" opportunity in front of them.

Let me give you an example. This morning on my way to work at the MRT station, there were only 2 ticket booths open. Because of the large number of people wanting to buy MRT passes, a long line started to form. Then suddenly, the third ticket booth opened. I was on my way to the third booth (tinawag ako nung babae, "Miss dito na po"), and I was about to give her my money, but there was this guy who just arrived at the station and who suddenly ran in front of me and gave his bills to the lady. What an ass. See the attitude there? He saw the small space between my bill and the ticket booth lady and grabbed the opportunity of buying first instead of me, even if it meant totally disregarding the people who have already been in line for a couple of minutes.

This morning, I finally realized why only Filipinos are like this. My answer is that, we are in a country where people are not given equal opportunities. And so with that, people find ways and means to grab every opportunity that comes their way, because they might not get that chance again. In other countries, everyone has equal opportunities. They don't have to be so aggressive and disregard their ethics because they know that they will have a fair share of what's there. When I was in the States and in Singapore, people calmly line up and wait for transportation to arrive, because they know that the next bus or the next train or the next taxi will be there in a few minutes. Here in Manila, you'd have to push your way to the swarm of people just to get in front of the line.

Hay Buhay.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

She’s the rare mix of a rebellious young girl in a very ripe and mature body. She admits that she loves sex so much. She makes your imagination go wild with statements like that. megan fox naked[url=http://paris-hilton-sex-tape.com] paris hilton sex tape [/url]

Rumors of Megan Fox allegedly using a thumb double in a Motorola Commercial during the Super Bowl have been circulating all over the internet. Megan Fox has a known condition of her thumbs known as Brachydactyly, which literally mean’s ’short finger’ but in the commercial, the focal point was her thumb as she used it to scroll down while operating the Motorola phone. megan fox naked
Rolling Stone cover girl Megan Fox took part in a smoking hot photo shoot for the magazine, and of course, only the very best shots were used. Now several of the outtakes from the shoot have been released and trust me when I say that if this is this chick’s “bad work”, then it really doesn’t matter that she’s borderline retarded. Megan Fox cooking bacon in her undies, seductively chewing on her finger, hanging out all spread-legged and laughing wickedly… Does any of that appeal to you? Check out the gallery below megan fox naked
megan fox naked Fox is of Irish, French and Native American ancestry,6 and was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee to Darlene Tonachio and Franklin Fox. She was raised Roman Catholic and attended Catholic school for 12 years.7 Fox's parents divorced when she was young and she and her sister8 were raised by her mother and her stepfather, Tony Tonachio.91011 She said that the two were "very strict" and that she was not allowed to have a boyfriend9 or invite friends to her house.8 She lived with her mother until she made enough money to support herself.
