Solution to ‘No Back Ride’ Policy? Funny ‘Social Distancing’ Video Goes Viral

Having a problem with the ‘no back ride’ policy? One couple found a hilarious solution to the ‘social distancing’ problem that’s got a lot of netizens laughing – and the video quickly went viral!

‘Social Distancing’ on a Motorcycle

In the Philippines, the ‘no back ride’ policy was imposed to ensure that there will be ‘social distancing’ to minimize, even stop, the rapid spread of COVID-19. Since the back rider can’t obviously sit 1m away from the driver, motorcycles can only be used by one person.

This poses a problem to many families, particularly because the motorcycle is their primary means of transportation to go to work, buy groceries, and other activities. Many Filipinos just can’t afford to buy a car and public transport options are limited at their area.

Funny Solution to ‘No Back Ride’ Policy

A video shared by Rodel Manalo drew laughs from netizens as it shows a woman riding on an aluminum basin that’s being pulled by a man on a motorcycle. The hilarious video has gained over 1.1 million views, with many netizens feeling amused over their antics.

At first glance, you might not see something wrong (or crazy?) with the man in the video who was just driving his motorcycle while wearing the prescribed helmet. He also had a masked on and didn’t have a back ride.

The guy wouldn’t have a problem passing through the checkpoint, but as the video continued, it was clear that he’s going to be in big trouble! Riding on an aluminum basin, a woman is clearly following ‘social distancing’ protocols but the land transportation office won’t be so happy with his modified ride.

Is This Safe?

While this might just be a joke video that was done for laughs, authorities warn people not to copy this setup. In reality, the ‘rider’ of the aluminum basin faces a lot of dangers. She could get hit by passing vehicles who might not notice her riding that low or she could be flung far as the motorcycle takes a turn on the road.

Other netizens also pointed out that the basin would easily heat up with friction. Aside from getting burns, the woman could eventually get scrapes from the road as the basin develops holes.

Bawal man ang mag backride sa motor, ingun anion nalang… okeey keyoo…

Corporal Seeks Help from Wife After Mistress Got Pregnant

A police corporal recently went viral because he sought help from his wife after getting his mistress pregnant! This shameless guy did not even tell the mistress that he has a wife when he took her out on a date, but he’s now hiding behind his wife after the other woman got pregnant. Tsk. Tsk.

Policeman Seeks Help from Wife over Pregnant Mistress

Yvonne Sandoval went to Raffy Tulfo in Action to seek help in asking financial support from her ex-boyfriend, P/Cpl Christian Peter Garino of Station 7 of the Quezon City Police Department (QCPD).

According to Yvonne, the corporal got her pregnant but now refuses to provide financial support for her and the baby. She also added that she did not know he was married. He only told her about being married when she got pregnant because he refuses to accept that the child is his.

Yvonne added that they only saw each other in person twice, on July 10 and July 16, 2020. The due date in April 2021 but Yvonne also says she is currently 8 months pregnant, based on her ultrasound results. This got the policeman suspicious that the baby might not be his.

Christian admits that he duped Yvonne and didn’t tell her he’s married but he denied that a courtship happened. Since he had only asked to go out with her the first time but it was her who asked for a second time, he thinks that she was already pregnant with another guy’s kid by then.

Zel, Christian’s wife, was calm as she talked on the show. She appears to have forgiven her husband for the infidelity but wants to make sure the baby was her husband’s through a DNA test. She promised that she won’t bar any allotment for the baby as long as the child is her husband’s baby.

Prenatal Paternity Test

These days, it is much easier to establish maternity/paternity through DNA testing. The standard test costs around Php15,000.

It is actually possible to test the baby’s DNA in the womb through a prenatal paternity test but the procedure is very costly and could go as high as Php75,000. That’s why many choose to wait until the child is born before doing the DNA paternity test.

Office Goes Viral for Yearly Tradition

After the door was opened, in fly the workers as they scrambled to get as much money as they could off the floor. The target is to get the bills with bigger value, of course, but getting more of the bills is also a good thing.

It is quite obvious in the video that the workers are having a good time as they tried their best to get as much money as they could. They were scrambling on the floor but it was all for fun.

While there were many netizens who jokingly wished that they were part of this office, there were others who slammed the administration for letting their workers do this. Some think that it would be better to just give the money in envelopes to the workers so that it would also be fair.

Responding to the attention the video has received, Ruzol said that they had been doing this for 10 years as tradition and had no plans to quit just because they received negative reactions from some netizens.

She explained that the workers had already received their bonus (in envelope) every December during their Christmas party. This activity is simply a yearly tradition they do to have fun.

Is Bonus Mandatory in the Philippines?

Employees are entitled to a 13th month pay which can be given in full in December or split into two.
