Setting: Megamall Carpark
Two motorists going around looking for a parking space. Motorist A finally found an opening and so waited on the sideline. But when the space became available, Motorist B cut him out and beat him to it.
Motorist B then blurted out, “It pays to be fast!”
Perhaps due to sheer frustration, the Motorist A crashed into Motorist B’s vehicle then went, “It pays to be rich!”
Note: The story was related to me by a friend.

We decided to have lunch at Jollibee Merville one time. I was at the counter waiting for my order when I overheard this conversation between the old man (OM) and the counterlady (CL) on my right side.
CL: Sir, mga 15 minutes pa po.
(Sir, your order will take about 15 minutes.)
OM: Ha, bakit?
CL: Kasi, sir, lulutuin pa po, eh.
(We’ll still be cooking it, sir.)
OM: Ano, tanghali na magluluto pa kayo? Pambihira!
(What? It’s almost 12 noon, and you’re still going to be cooking? You’re impossible!)
Kwentong Kalye = Pedestrians’ Stories
In local parlance, this is “Mga Kwentong Kalye.” Stories that we hear from the streets or things we experience on the streets.
If you have your own “kwentong kalye” do share them here.Customer Service, Jollibee Corporation, Pedestrian's Story | Comments
