The Metro Rail Transit (MRT) has been experiencing a series of fiascos as of late, so Malacañang Palace is offering a solution: Mag-bus na lang tayong lahat.
"Yung MRT lang ba ang pwedeng sakyan doon sa mga rutang dinaraanan nito? Baka naman pwedeng matuklasan pa yung iba pang mga options," said Presidential Communications Operations Office head Herminio Coloma Jr. during a press briefing last Thursday. "Hindi naman siksikan ang mga bus. Siguro panahon na para tignan yung ibang mga opsyon habang hinihintay natin ang pagdating ng mga bagong bagon ng MRT."
Unsurprisingly, Pinoys think Coloma couldn't be more wrong. "This is the height of middle class arrogance!" says one netizen. "I love how my taxes go to well-informed people like the guy who said this," says another. With all due respect, Sec. Coloma, what the hell are you talking about?
In all fairness to Coloma, he has since retracted his statement. "Humihingi tayo ng paumanhin at pag-unawa dahil maaaring nagkaroon ng misimpression arising from that single answer," he said during a press conference earlier today. We appreciate the apology, but this is far from over.
Since Coloma seems to have it "all figured out," we wonder what he thinks about Anne Curtis, Daniel Padilla, and The Undertaker's respective mishaps. Do you have any words of wisdom for them, sir?
Note: It is not our intention to offend Coloma and the celebrities included in these memes. Biro lang powhz!
NEXT: Nakasakay ka na ba sa rumaragasang bus?
