Do not tolerate those "Rugby kids"

I have this story to tell which happened just yesterday. This really happens all the time, though I choose the recent one. My co worker and I were buying a burger at the Burger Machine when suddenly, a young boy approached us asking for a burger. It was too funny because he acted as if he is with us and close to us. Then, my co worker told him, the money was just enough for us. Then the boy persistently asked for 5 pesos. Too demanding that my coworker and I laughed. The boy again asked for 5 pesos, but the second time, he said he'll buy a bread. We declined to give him the money because we know he'll buy "rugby" instead. Another scenery was when we were going home, we saw another boy in one corner sneezing rugby, my other co worker said, "Hey boy, stop that", then the boy said sarcastically, "Ok, i will stop, but you have to give me money." My co worker just made a nod and told us, "no way, because I know that won't be a guarantee that you'll stop sneezing rugby". Of course, we agreed to what my co worker just remarked. Rugby kids were spreading here in Manila. It does not classify, they maybe a boy or a girl and sometimes a pregnant woman.

What are you talking about? I'm not being rude, I am just trying to understand what rugby is and what it means in this conversation???

Ok, i know. That is why i put a "and" on the term because "rugby" in the Philippines is a product used by shoemakers as a glue and it really makes you high. It's what street kids use as substitute for food.
