10 Things That Run Faster Than the MRT

This is what 20 kph feels like.


(SPOT.ph) Following yet another technical problem encountered by one of the MRT-3 trains on Tuesday evening, June 13, Director for Operations Deo Manalo announced that the rail system will be undergoing inspections until Sunday. The number of operational coaches have been reduced to 15 and train speed has been cut to 20 kilometers per hour from the usual 40 to 60 kph. This resulted in longer queues especially during rush hour, as if it's not bad enough on a regular day.


Through the commuters’ reactions on the Internet, we round up other things that run as fast (or even faster) than the current MRT kph. Of course, most of them are hyperboles (nope, not symbolism), but you get the drift.


Your trusty neighborhood tricycle



An ex who's trying to move on



Your own running speed



A funeral procession



A chain smoker



The kiddie train inside the mall



The rusty PNR trains



A hammock or a porch swing that you always fall asleep on



The ever-dependable pedicab



Cars stuck in traffic along EDSA



What else can you think of?
