Black and White

When I entered the movie house yesterday, there was a fight.

Basing it on how the conversations of the two characters involved in this story went, let’s just call them Black and White. That was the colors of their shirts. Black sat behind me and White was sitting on the lane behind Black. White was with a girl, who placed her feet on the chairs in front of her. Black got annoyed and told the girl to put her feet down. And then, White confronted Black saying that she should not shout a girl.

They were going in circles. Black said that she doesn’t own the girl any explanation, because since it was a movie house, as etiquette, the girl’s feet must stay on the ground and not everywhere else. However, White was irritated because Black was shouting at his girl.

Both of them have their points. However, they were both unstoppable.

I was still enjoying my hotdog sandwich when a girl shouted that, “Ikaw kasi (Black) sumasagot ka pa, tumahimik ka na, para sa ating lahat, nakakahiya. Ikaw din Sir (White), tumigil na kayo, hindi na matatapos ito.” At that moment, I want to give the girl a hug. She sat besides Black and she was brave enough to even tell her companion that.

Yeah, the conversation was stupid. But its human nature that we always tend to make things complicated. Thinking that it all started with forgotten movie etiquette, tsk tsk. I’m ashamed of the girl who missed her manners; however, I am proud of the girl who strive for peace. J

I always believe in standing for what you believe is right. I am also aware that you should voice out your concern when something is wrong. But like any war, it is also important that you choose your own battles.

    Totoo to.

    Pero minsan kasi parang ang sarap patulan ng mga taong walang modo. Pero yun nga lang, hindi mo kailangang ilevel yung sarili mo sa knila.

    Kaloka naman kasi si girlaloo. Shunga naman tong si boylet white. Siya pa nagalit. Hay. Sunugin sila pareho! lol

    about the girl..."Yeah, the conversation was stupid. But its human nature that we always tend to make things complicated." - sometimes or shall i say most of the time i really care less when it comes to fight and fighting...i dont want to get involved any fights...but when it comes to manners really im such a monster,like what the girl did i might tell her like what Black do,but i wont do the same on shouting at her,maybe im a monster but i never shout haha kasi naman ayaw ko ng mga maingay
    im easily pissed off to people like the girl at the back but whatever hindi parin maganda ginawa niya at ni black...bravo parin kay black and to his girl kasi tough to scold the two of them hahaha buti nga,^^ sa movie pa nag ingay...

    i believe in this pero kasi alam mo yun merong mga nageexist na nilalang na sa sobrang babaw, ang sarap na lang ring patulan. i've had the same encounter na. una, hindi ako nagsasalita just ignoring her and all tapos hanggang sa napuno na ako and pinatulan ko na. hahaha..

    first time here, elijah.
