"Itim na Usok" or "Fancy Vroom": Which of Metro Manila's Public Transportation Options Are You?
This meme is too real.
(SPOT.ph) With the MRT breaking down on a daily basis, the jeepney phaseout leaving commuters confused, and Grab and Uber under the constant threat of being suspended, you have to wonder how the everyday Metro public-transport user stays sane.
In the face of these problems, it’s always nice to find something to laugh about. Local artist Huhsmile today posted a meme on Facebook that lists the attributes of each of the commuting options available to Metro Manila residents in a hilariously on-point way. From "Para Po" to "Fancy Vroom," which one are you?
Of course, the folks of the Internet couldn't help but relate, and here are some of the best comments:
The old-school "surge" pricing
Nice one, lah
FYI, there are more options available
That's what you call making the most of what you've got
If only the streets were safer and walking was an option
The East siders have spoken
Whatever gets you home safe and faster
There are always trade-offs
