Why Are Filipinos so Lazy?
Every culture has lazy people, but there sure do seem to be a lot more lazy Filipinos. I think the easiest way to notice this is to see how much they hate to walk anywhere.
I once got on a jeepney that was close to empty. After I got on a 30ish year old woman got on and we waited 10+ minutes for it to fill up.
Now the jeep started to go and before we had even traveled 200 yards she asked the driver to stop and walked into a building on the side of the road.
This would have been a 3 minute walk for her. Even though jeeps are super cheap it also would have saved her money. She appeared to have full functioning legs. So why wait almost 15 minutes to avoid a 3 minute walk?
That was an extreme example, but you will see things similar all the time. Maybe the jeep stops in front of one building and someone gets out.
The driver starts back up and someone else asks him to stop 15 seconds later after we had moved on 50 feet. Instead of just getting out and walking 50 feet they must be dropped off directly in front of their destination.
Granted I like to walk so this sounds even lazier to me than most people, but it must suck to be a jeepney driver and have to start and stop for lazy people all the time.
Sometimes I will tell a girl I walked somewhere that was 10 minutes away and she will look at me like I must be crazy. Why would the foreigner who can afford a taxi choose to walk?
If you’re with a girl just go ahead and get a taxi because she won’t be up for a short walk.
Other Lazy Ways
Ask a girl if she wants to hang out and if she has already done ANYTHING that day she will be to tired. Say she walked to the store that is 5 minutes away an hour ago and you ask her now.
What are you doing? ‘Lying in my bed I so tired.’ What did you do? ‘Walk to store get milk.’ And the rest of the day they lay in bed listening to music and playing around on Facebook.
You invite them to hang out and they say they can’t because it’s ‘so far’ even though its a 10 minute taxi ride (that you will pay for) away.
Some Filipina girls to use the excuse that they have been ‘so busy’ despite you knowing that they don’t have a job, aren’t looking for a job, and have no responsibilities.
Add to it that you have texted with them most days and they have told you they are doing nothing when you ask….. so either they lied then or they lied now.
But I’m not a detective and don’t really care, I just find it kinda funny how lazy they can be about some things. If you go into Rustan’s (the nice upscale supermarket) they have chairs at the check out counter.
They are right next to it, so you can only site while you are the one getting checked out. I have seen people buying one item take a seat and sit there as long as they could. I am sure there feet were so sore from the 2 minute walk while they found that one item they got.
