Post Encouraging People to Clean Up after Eating at Restaurants Goes Viral

Many of us love to eat out at restaurants and fast foods. It’s not that we don’t cook at home, but we just love to enjoy a good meal from these restaurants. But many of us also assume that it’s the restaurant crew’s job to clean up after the meal, right?

Well, technically, it really is the job of the crew to clear the tables and make the area clean again for the next customers. However, as a courtesy to the crew, why not help them do it, too? After all, we clean up the tables at our homes after eating – and the tables at these restaurants are no different.

Recently, someone shared a photo of a clean table, with all the plates, saucers, bowls, and glasses stacked up together in a neat pile. Even the calamansi rinds, spoons, and forks are neatly arranged on the stack, ensuring that the place would only take a few seconds to buss out.

Practice doing this whenever you will eat outside and you will surely bring smile on the crew’s face,” Junery Ace Villa wrote in a Facebook post.

The post quickly went viral, with many people commending Villa for what he did to the table and for the advocacy of sharing this so that other people would also do the same.

It is a good example of discipline, inabot ng maayos yung pagkain kaya dapat iwan din ng maayos yung pinagkainan ❤️,” netizen Sean Kristoffer Ronquillo commented.

Indeed, many are saying this is but a matter of discipline. Others also shared that a lot of diners do the same in foreign countries, but Filipinos simply leave the table in its chaotic order after a meal when dining out.

But many aren’t as keen to the idea, insisting that it is the crew’s job to clean the tables as they might break the dinnerware if they do it. Hmmmm. What do you think?

Student Praised for Finding Ways to Earn Extra Money While Also Helping Classmates

Being a student can be a difficult thing, especially when there are lots of things that you need to bring for school. Plus, there are times when your parents just could not buy you the things you needed for school for a particular day or could not buy school supplies when you needed them, often due to monetary constraints.

A young student found a way to solve that problem a bit, by selling some much-needed items or renting out stuff to earn money.

Sarah Arabella Sanchez Canlas shared photos of her extra business in school, so she could earn some cash as added ‘baon’ (allowance).

The young girl sells paper for Php1 a piece, even putting clever ‘hugot’ lines on some of her ads.

The enterprising student also knows that there are some students who just don’t bring a ballpen to school. So, she rents out ballpens for Php3 an hour, with a charge of Php30 if they lost the pen. LOL.

She also offers baby powder for Php5 per use, perfume for Php3 per spray, a*****l for Php1 per use, and comb for Php2 per use. This girl is really clever with her business, offering things that many students would need.

Some netizens commented that her items are quite expensive, considering that you can buy pens for just Php5 and a pad of paper (which has around 80 lbs) is just around Php10 to Php20, depending on the brand and grade level.

But, hey! It’s her business! She can price the items any way she wants because her classmates could choose to become more responsible by bringing their own school supplies instead of depending on others.

It seems to have started when the Facebook page of 7-Eleven Marikina squealed on their page that a Ministop Marikina crew bought some ice from their store. In response, the Ministop Marikina page bragged about their ice lasting longer, implying that their ice is better than 7-Eleven Marikina although the other page/company was not named.

Soon, the two would exchange hilarious posts on social media that really got a lot of people laughing. They both slammed the other store’s goods, claiming theirs are superior. Some other brands also chimed in, joining in an internet free-for-all, while some netizens told the two brands to stop the word war because both of them don’t have comfort rooms to offer their customers, anyway. LOL.

The two continued to throw hilarious barbs at each other.

When 7-Eleven Marikina bid everyone a good night, Ministop Marikina quickly posted that they won’t be saying good night because the store is open 24 hours day. Good one, Ministop Marikina!

The word war seems to have stopped a bit; though the two had not decided on a truce…

Security Guards Try to Chase Beggar for Being a ‘Nuisance’, But He Buys Smartphone in Cash

Barefoot, with unkempt body, and carrying two sacks, a shabbily dressed beggar was repeatedly chased out by the security guards of a mall, thinking he was just being a ‘nuisance’ in the area, but he surprised everyone when he bought a smartphone with cash – and didn’t even try to haggle for a discount off the price tag.

The incident happened last May 22 in Thailand, as shared by the shop assistant who catered to this customer, Pimpim Cooper. According to Cooper, the man who certainly looks like a beggar, entered the mall and headed straight to their shop.

The still unnamed guy pointed to a phone model he liked and told Cooper he wants to buy it. He didn’t even ask for the price (though the price was listed on the tag, anyway) or begged for the shopkeeper to lower the price. Instead, he took out plenty of paper bills from his sack-bags to pay for the phone.

Although the man was not dressed proper clothes and looked so unkempt that he appeared to be a beggar who can’t afford to buy food, Cooper entertained him like any other customer – and he actually had enough money to buy the phone in cash!

According to Cooper, the man did apologize for paying in 20-baht notes ($0.63) and she had to spend some time counting his cash, but she was impressed that he was so well-mannered.

While waiting for Cooper to finish counting the stacks of paper bills and complete the paperwork, the man patiently waited by the phone stall. Several times, the security guards went to the stall and tried to chase him away – and Cooper had to defend him each time, telling the security officers that the guy was actually buying a smartphone for real.

Some netizens believe he had taken the money from somewhere but others think he earned the cash honestly, that’s why he’s using small paper bills to pay for the big-ticket item.
