A netizen shared his story on his social media account about the two jeepney passengers that he encountered on July 12.
Clint Rematado Gardose, a working student recounted how the passengers mocked him and for his ‘burger-like smell’ while he’s traveling back home from school
Fortunately, Gardose controlled his emotion until the end of the trip. To release his grudge to the passengers who mocked him without knowing his background, he wrote a lengthy post on Facebook which addressed to the people who made fun of him.
According to him, he only kept his cool while the two passengers, which he described as people who wearing respectable clothes secretly mocked him for his smell.
The male passenger even said that Gardose doesn’t have money to buy soap to maintain good smell.
“hi ateng nsa jeep knina at mga tropa mong classmate mo ata yun na binabaligtad nyo pa salita nyo na sinasabihan nyo ako na amoy burger? haha di nman ako galit don kasi totoo nman 😂😊 uminit lng yung ulo ko sa katabi kong lalake na tropa mo din na sabi “alaws pang ilib ng nobas” di ako b*b* alam kung pinag uusapan nyo kinakalma ko lng ang sarili ko.. ang gagalang pa nman ng suot nyo” Gardose wrote in his post.
In his post, he explained that he’s working as a fast food restaurant crew in Jollibee to earn money for his college studies.
Gardose said that he doesn’t have time anymore to take a bath because of the lack of time and he needed to rush to attend his classes after working overtime.
“sana mkita mo tong post ko para malaman mo king bakit amoy burger ako haha 😉 galing kasi akong work nung time na yun tas accidentally na extended ako kya di nko msxado nag linis haha,” He said.
He also said that he’ not ashamed by his smell because the smell of the burger that sticked to his body was one of the reason why he’s going to graduate in college.
“At saka diko nman kinahihiya yung amoy na yun dahil sa pagiging amoy burger graduating nako 😇 yun lng sa mga mkaka amoy ng burger wag kayo ma beast mode sarap kya nun,”
Gardose hopes that the people who mocked him read the letter that he wrote for them so they can realize that the man that they mocked is a working-student who worked hard to fulfill his dream.
