three incidents

Saturday afternoon, our street.

Lola neighbor: Kumusta naman ang trabaho mo?

Me: Okay naman po.

Lola neighbor: Hindi naman kayo nagtanggalan ng mga tao?

Me: Hindi naman po.

Lola neighbor: Mabuti naman. Kaya pag-igihan mo ang trabaho mo ha?

Me: Opo.

Lola neighbor: Swerte ka at napapasok ka diyan sa Unilever.

Nyaaah! I don’t work in Unilever ‘no!

Sunday night, dinner with family.

Me: *hugs chubby five-year old nephew very tightly*

Tita N: Ikaw kasi eh, kung nagkaanaak ka ba nung 24 ka e di may six-year old ka na ngayon!

Me: *stunned*

Uhhh, 26 pa lang ako ngayon! My aunt’s math is totally skewed.

Monday night, Starbucks Midtown.

Barista: May I know your name for the cup?

Me: Judie.

Barista: Come again?

Me: (louder) Judie!

Barista: Julie?!

Me: (frustrated) Yeah.

A little later at the bar.

Barista: Grande vanilla latte for Joni!!!

Hayyyy. At least it wasn’t totally far from Judie. I’ve been Marie, Josie, Lani and Janice before. Maybe next time, sabihin ko na lang ako si Ana, para simple.

Ain’t my life great?

    I prefer the hazelnut latte myeslf… Venti. I get all sorts of weird spellings for my name (even though I tell them immediately that it’s G-A-B-I). Pero malayo naman ang Joni sa Judie.
