Been there, done that, still here. Whether it’s going to work, school, or out on a date, commuting is no one’s favorite time of the day. Imagine being drenched in sweat, standing in a hot and stuffy train, squashed between strangers and trying desperately to avoid eye contact. Or worse, imagine being stuck in traffic for hours and hours even when your office’s supposed to be just a 30-minute ride away. There are also the hot-headed drivers, smoke-belching cars, long ticket and entrance lines, and scary jeepneys and trains that might derail at any time.
Travelling to work during rush hour is not for the faint of heart. But then, you’re living in the Philippines, so hailing a public vehicle is absolutely necessary. And since we’ve spent a lot more time than we would care for inside our ever-so-friendly jeepneys, we understand too well the struggles of commuter life. For everyone who knows the all-too-real struggles of the daily commute, this one’s for you.
