Maybe this is due to the unbearable heat. Maybe it’s the series of difficult events that have happened to my friends and me. I just felt like posting two questions that have been bothering me for sometime now:
1. Why does Road Watch and all other traffic updates on the radio broadcast live with that irritating beat in the background? The traffic announcers sound nasal and scratchy – think A.M. mono effect – and given that unnecessary background music slash noise, who can understand what they’re saying? A motorist stuck in traffic, tired from work, late for work, or out of patience? The announcers also mouth their updates at the speed of light, and seldom do I catch what I need to her when I need to hear it.
2. Why do Shell gasoline attendants ask me if I want full tank V-power even before I can speak? Is it because of my old Velocity sticker? Or is this SOP? It irritates me when I’m rushing and just need a quick pit stop and there they are, offering me a product I cannot afford.
I try not to be masungit anymore. I am grateful for many good things. I just needed to vent.
