This morning a co-passenger refused to pass my fare on to the jeepney driver. She was using her cell phone (or was pretending to), pressing buttons like she was entering code to avert a nuclear missile launch; I had to reach across her to the next passenger who was also reaching across to get my money.
Only after a few minutes did the lady look up from saving the world. She looked out the window, realized she'd missed her stop, and shouted, "Para!" Before alighting she accused the driver of not following his route.
What can I say, karma is a bitch.
