Little Of Your Time

Dealing with Philippine government agencies is always a hoot.

Of course, Raft3r is being sarcastic.

This is The Deadbeat Club, after all.

Due to a recent incident, I had way too much personal time with Philippine bureaucracy.

You often hear horror stories about government employees. Raft3r can attest to that now.

Are government employees trained to be such arrogant bastards?

Not only are you obligated to wait for hours to get a chance to speak with any of them, you also get to experience their world class customer service.

Hey, government workers! It wouldn’t hurt to smile at your customers. Nor would it be such a burden to make eye contact with them.

It is tax payers’ money that put food on your table. The least you could do is try to be decent.

Denoy, not all government workers are like that. You could go to our office so you can see a different breed of public servants. :)

Raft3r said...

jella, Sana pala dyan na lang ako na-carnapan. Hehe

HalfCrazy said...

Oh damn, I hate some of the government agencies. Pila ka ng mahaba, susungitan ka, mauubusan ka ng papel, walang aircon at sobrang init, at kung anu-ano pa! Hirap pa hanapin ung mga taong gusto mong makausap!

HalfCrazy said...

Ay sorry, medyo galit yata ako? Haha!

Raft3r said...

halfcrazy, I feel you. I feel you. Hehe

Andy said...

Uy, dahan-dahan naman sa hurtful comments. I work for the government. Boss ko si Ate Glow.

Joke lang, hehe

Raft3r said...

andy, Your boss rocks. Nyahaha

wendy said...

Hi Raft, sa Pasay police station ka ba nagkakaproblema?

I've been a govt employee for six years and I understand why you hate some of us. Marami na rin akong naencounter na govt employees na ang tatamad and yung mga akala mo kung sino. Of course you know I'm not like that at all. Lol. But I understand where you're coming from. Kahit ako sinusumpa ko ang bureaucracy sa mga napasukan ko na opisina. Masakit talaga sa ulo.

Raft3r said...

wendy, Marami naman sigurong matitinong kawani sa gobyerno. Kaya nga lang mas exposed kami sa mga marurumi nyong counterparts. Hehe

gillboard said...

they can't help it din naman... overworked and underpaid din naman sila... unless corrupt siguro...

Raft3r said...

gillboard, Overworked at underpaid din naman ako. Pero di ako masungit. Hehe

hitokirihoshi_kawaii said...

hmmmm

hindi naman lahat pero mahaba-haba pa ang pisi ko sa kanila. kaso ang nanay ko once na napika, hindi nagpapapigil.umaariba ang pagka-waray.

one time sa may camp crame (nilalakad namin scholarship ng pinsan ko)

Manang Juling: ikaw (receptionist) kung ayaw mo dyan sa puwesto mo mag-resign ka! hindi ka tinanggap dito para mag-fashion show.

doon naman sa SSS

Manang Juling: Nagtatanong ako ng maayos, sagutin mo ako ng maayos. hoy pareho na tayong senior pero ikaw para kang walang pinagkatandaan.

ano laban Ka!

Raft3r said...

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Nyahaha. Maisama nga ermats mo next time. Hehe

prinsesamusang said...

Raft3r said...

Anonymous said...

Raft3r said...

mona, Hindi naman lahat. Syempre. Kilala mo naman ako. Mahilig ako sa hasty generalizations. Hehe

random student said...

malas mo lang natapat ka sa tamad at emo. swerte swerte rin kasi yan. parang sa private offices. malas mo pag natapat ka sa receptionist na laging meron. or bank rep na lumilipad ang isip. buwan buwan na lang ata eh parang minamalas ka? naku, change your routine, magbeberdey ka na nang swertehin naman.

Raft3r said...

random student, Nyahaha. Baka lalo ko mabadtrip sa bday ko. Hehe

zhe archer said...

Raft3r said...

zhe archer, Kasing sungit din ba nila tayo? Hehe

pete said...

Raft3r said...

len said...

SOME government employees just know how to perfectly follow their bosses’ lead especially the one who’s currently in Malacanang. ;p

Raft3r said...

len, Best comment - by far. Hehe

Hipchick said...

Anonymous said...

importante ang customer service. lalo na sa government.

Raft3r said...

anonymous, Sana ma-realize din nila yan. Hehe

Cedric said...

I always dread going to government offices for the same reasons you stated. You won't feel the 'public service' bit of their work. Not to mention the way they perpetuate red tape so you'll be forced to bribe them to facilitate the transaction.

I'm not referring to all government employees, but this has been a general trend as far as my experience goes.

Raft3r said...

cedric, Tama yan. Mahilig sila sa lagay. Sad but true.

Judayski said...

Are you sure you didn't give them enough reason to do that to you? Hm, nonetheless, they should be nice nga pala. We should know that, we provide 'public' services.

(Grabe talaga pag sapilitan magpa-comment, wala ako maisip. Bring the vodka book na. Hehe, love you.)

Raft3r said...

judayski, Nyahaha. On my way.

Jerick said...

what's up with you kuya?

Raft3r said...

jerick, Nawawala padin yun Picanto. Hehe

Jr said...

Raft3r said...

jr, Mahirap gumalaw pag may humihingi ang lagay. Hehe

eden said...

Raft3r said...

eden, Pati celphone? Ang lupit non, ah. Hehe

bestfriend said...

alalahanin mo na lang yung experience mo nung nag wi window ka pa, di ba parang gusto mo na lahat silang sigawan

Raft3r said...

bestfriend, Mabait ako sa window! Tanong mo pa sa kanila. Hehe
