My friend and I went to the mall to eat dinner. As we fell in line in the crowded food court, I saw someone carrying my bag! When the man was about to leave, I left the order line and ran after him, “Bilis, baka makatakas!” I recall thinking to myself. I was so angry that I started cursing as soon as got hold of him, “Tangina mong magnanakaw ka! Bag ko yan!” My anger immediately turned into humiliation as the guy flipped the nametag on the bag with his name written on.
The damn bag was only a look-alike. I was so embarrassed I wanted to crawl under the chair and hide. I felt really bad. All I can do at that point is to apologize and ran away. So Mr. bag-owner, if you’re reading this right now, sorry again! My bad!
