Well today wasnt a really good day. I was wasted from lack of sleep and I had to go to 2 interviews this morning. I never made it to both interviews. Although being sleep deprived, I was still alert to notice that a guy was trying to cop a feel on my thigh during that tricycle ride. Yes I was aboard this contraption that shuttles people from our remote neighborhood all the way to the town, when one of the fucking passengers tried to grope on my leg/s. My limb/s was obviously not going to secure the asshole from falling off the tricycle. I didnt buy his lame excuse that accidentally touching my thigh TWICE (thats why i mentioned leg/s) in a row was really an accident and that he thought it was still part of the motorcycle. Yeah right dumb ass.
Im very paranoid. I have reasons to be and that includes that disturbing massacre that happened many years ago and unfortunately was not given justice after 19 years. Also, a few years ago, when I was in college, a girl who lived in town rode a tricycle and a few minutes later, she was found dead. It was a case that I have followed over the years but lost track off when I enrolled in Medical school. Im not sure of the outcome of the case but from what I heard later on, it was not resolved. Like most heinous crimes that happen here in my country, a huge majority are not resolved. In 2004 I have been held up while on board a van on my way home to Antipolo.One of the guys who held a gun against my temple even planned on taking me with them. The other guy however said they were just after our cellphones and money and convinced his companion not to hurt anyone. That was a miracle however. An unforgettable yet chilling experience I never got over.
Right now Im still upset over what transpired this morning but grateful that Im okay and I safely made it home. I dont really know if there is a way for me to avoid things like this from happening again. All I know is, Im still lucky compared to some people who never even had that opportunity to share their story or rather live to tell their harrowing tale.
