As part of the workforce, I often take the FX PUV every day at 5AM, from my home in Pasig City to my office in Makati City. One morning, I had a hard time getting a ride. It was only after a few minutes that I was able to do so. So there I was, in a cramped FX. I found myself taking the middle seat, where two heavyweights were already seated. As soon as I got in, we almost had the entire seat-for-four occupied. How I wished the driver wouldn’t let another passenger in. But then halfway to my destination, there came this petite young lass, who was supposed to take the last vacant seat.
