    Hi Nec,

    Thanks for honoring this post with you spending time to comment on it.
    If you have actually read this post the attribution is in the first line (“from a media loop”) . Meaning it came from an e-group of media friends. There is no illusion that this was original.

    Unfortunately, it seems you might have chosen to personify your comment. Peace bitaw!

    yeah right media loop. But this isn’t “collected by schools from all over the country.” that’s for sure. You suck with your excuses dude.

    And “Grab a Life?” WTF? now that’s original. and disappointing.

  15. Istambay says :

    To those who find irregularities in this post,

    I cant understand why its really big deal with you. I’m tempted not to respond to your tirades but I’ll speak my mind out anyway. Thanks for expressing your takes in my little corner. I respect your opinion and your right to say it.

    Even if a few expressed their narrow minds via their comments, I’m happy that most of those who gave comments are people with good dispositions in life who know the border between fun and bigotry.

    i love them… ang iba “korny” nga ang iba naman napaka orig… hahaha.

    now, it’s not only in the Philippines that teachers receive those kinds of excuse letters… ironically, dito din sa USA, i’m teaching in one of the top high schools in US and sad to say na ang parents din ng mga students ko di rin marunong mag construct ng sentence correctly, not only the parents but also the students, imagine my disappointment… so i guess we have to forgive some of our filipino parents (at least they tried to make it formal by writing excuse letters in english no matter how crooked and boy did they try really hard, saludo parin ako). Dito parang di ko kayang i-forgive kasi it’s their native tongue, and they are supposed to be masters of their language.

    well siguro nangyayari yan kahit sa pinas din with our Tagalog… notice my tagalog sentences? crooked din! maayo pa mag bisaya. hehehe. Bukidnon my home!!! I’m coming home soon.. miss ko na pollution and jeepney honkings, miss ko na traffic, and jollibee is 5 hours drive. I miss chowking, i miss Lim ket kai, Gaisano, SM, oro rama, I miss liceo de cagayan university, i miss my filipino students (who are always polite, and nice, and sweet, and QUIET kahit minsan di naiintindihan ang discussion, when i ask “do you follow?”, yango pa rin ng yango! haaaaaaaaaay!) i miss all of the Philippines!
