mp3 zombies

source
while I was riding a jeepny back home yesterday, I tried observing the people together with me. it was so silent inside the PUV except for this one guy. this guy was a large man probably in his mid to late 20s wearing a headset probably from his cellphone or his mp3 player. there were also around 6 people inside who has one, which includes me. but this guy was different. the problem was this person was actually singing on the top of his falcetto voice which was really really god! I swear! adding-up-all-the-annoying-adjectives-you-can-think-of to describe him while singing that what goddamn song he was listening. not to offend anyone, but honestly hearing a big guy singing regine velasquez's songs would probably be the most ackward moment of your life.
everybody was already staring at him that time. but the guy seemed to be so clueless of how loud and screechy his voice was and the torment of his voice scratching our ear drums.
I am really not fond of discriminating a person because of his features or what not, but darn it was really unbearable. infact, there were two girls sitting beside me, who at first was giggling at him. but the next time I twist my head on their side, they've immediately transformed into foul mothed bitches cursing him to the extremes. they were also already making 'parinig'. but the guy was still blankly looking outside and singing in his mind ALOUD, as if he was all alone and making his own mtv or videoke scenes inside the jeepny. I swear, I could even see him in black and white that time.
it was a torture chamber being inside the jeep that time. it actually went worst for me and the rest of the passengers, because it seemed like we were sharing this telepathic feeling that all of us including that man are dropping at the same place which was the end of the route---the jeepny terminal.
then when we reached philcoa, people began to dropped off. but all eyes where actually on the man, anticipating for the slightest movement that would tell us it was his stop. but the man didn't moved into his seat. but he paused from singing. the jeep went off after all philcoa passengers were already gone. it was silent again. from that point you tend to really appreciate the pleasure of silence. but when we thought it was already over, the man released something that was sharper, more thinner and more annoying pitch, trying to hit a high note on regine velasquez' song palasyo. it was extremely terrible! believe me, its not something that you want to encounter everyday. I just have my share. I just hope somebody would soon have theirs. hahaha.
by the way, to whoever do the same thing please be considerate. if you want to follow the song being played on your players, please sing with it silently and close your mouth.

If the person has a beautiful voice and such then I wouldnt have a problem with it. Also if I were in your place I would have approached the guy and told him that he is singing out loud. Probably he didnt do it on purpose just got carried away with the song.

chase: the problem was, it was not. but you're right. people has the guts to make parinig. but they can't directly approach them naman.

I had the same encounter before. A big guy sang on top of his voice and what he sang was a regine song. No wonder, I never liked that artist ever.

southdude said...

i therefore conclude si regine ang may kasalanan. ops! no offense meant! :-)

Anino said...

Yan ang kapangyarihan ni Regine!Hahaha!

May nangyari sa akin sa isang dyip.May sumakay na matandang babae.May dala siyang balde na may takip.Ang baho ng laman nung balde.Parang bulok na isda at bagoong.basta ganun na yun.Sa harapan ko pa siya umupo.Bale nakaupo ako sa likudan ng drayber.Siya naman ay kaharap ko.nagtanong agad yung katabi niya kung ano ang laman nung balde.Ang sagot ng matanda "Bakit?Bibili ka ba?"

Ayun ang baho na nga ng dala niya ay masungit pa si Lola.Eh ako naman hindi maarte pero talagang nabahuan ako.Tinanong ko siya

"Lola,sensya na po,ano po bang laman niyan?Mabaho po kasi."

Sabi ni Lola "Bibili ka ba?"

Tameme kaming lahat ng pasahero sa dyip.Medyo galit na dahil super baho at sungit ni Lola.

Hindi na nakatiis yung drayber,hininto yung dyip at nagtanong.

"lola,mawalang galang na po.Istorbo po kayo sa pasahero.Ano po bang laman ng balde?" tanong nung drayber.

"Bakit?Bibili ka ba?" sagot ng lola.

Sa galit nung drayber,biglang pinaharurot yung sasakyan.Sa sobrang bilis nung andar ay natumba yung balde at tumapon yung laman sa dyip.Ang baho talaga!Napasigaw pa nga yung mga babae sa dyip!Hindi ko talaga makalimutan yung araw na yun.
