Do not cross this line

A month ago, on our way home from buying baking supplies, we passed through Farmer’s Market in Cubao. I’ve been meaning to blog about this but I didn’t have visual evidence. Haha!

So yesterday, when we passed by the same area, I tried to take the best shot I could. If you click on the thumbnail, you’ll see a security guard on the corner with what looks like a yellow and blue rope attached to the post. See those people behind him? They’re people waiting to cross. When the cars are at a stop light, the string goes down and people are free to cross the intersection.

Are Filipinos really that bad at following directions that they need ropes to tell them when to cross and when not to? I couldn’t believe it at first, but seriously, this is real! Don’t you find it strange?

    That’s being implemented on the whole Araneta Center. Sometimes the guards don’t rely on the stoplights. Kahit na the people are supposed to be crossing the street na, hindi pa nila binababa ung tali.
