That is So Discriminating MOM!

Philippines
April 7, 2011 11:01am CST
How rude...... I didn't want to let this out but i couldn't believe she said those things. Just tonight, she's going to our Home Province in the Northern part of the Luzon, together with a family friend whos son was once her student. So, there just waiting for another person to come so that they can leave together for that trip. Mom remind me a few things like the workers monthly salary and the Middle person who's handling both of our Electrical and Water Meter Applications. but until the Meters had been installed, i'd been told to refuse him his balance. Then she told me not to say a word to renters about her whereabouts since it could save me trouble from more questions. two had already paid for their rent spaces, only one left, supposed to be the Barbershop but probably having a mind changing on and off. But i asked her, How about that gay (the only gay) who asked for that space for his Fruit Kiosk. She then remarked something i didn't expect and i never Liked to hear from her. she maliciously thought of him as doing something else (e.g. Prosti) and having a Fruit Shop is just a Front LINE. I told her Straight THAT IS DISCRIMINATION and out right wrong. i got so upset that i didn't buy them pandesal (bun) like she asked me to. I thought he'd be a good one because mom doesn't have to walked to market while there's already a fruit post in the area, not to mention we might get free 12 diff. fruits for ever NEW YEAR :D Though, it would have been More Civil if she would have just said he may not be able to handle the RENT, which was more reasonable and logical. but the rest were Garbage. I believe that Gay would have made it, but i hope he could take that other space that he told me when we had that conversation. which is less expensive... She's recommending VIDEO CITY business renter (people that sells original DVDs?) but there's already a Pirated one in the market and a DVD/CD renter store in our front! Mom is generally a good and generous person, but tonight......I don't know, maybe she said it as a way of Saying NO, disgusting maybe i should have closed my ears!(she was sleepy btw, hope she regrets it in the morning) PS: I guess having a rent space (8k[190$] - 10k[232$) is just too much for beginners. but am sorry to say, the materials were made were indeed expensive.btw, it's NEW.

And the point to this will be, sweetie? I don't blame your mom. Please remember, women feel things and that probably let her made a decision. Leave the fruit and whatnot and go to bed.

Hello Saphie, Maybe he didn't deserve the post or rent space with a Rest Room / Wash Room since the rate is way to high for him to cover but he didn't have to say anything else than just him incapacity to pay. she orders me around to go and buy fruits, those vendors and sellers from the market only buys it on another Market in a bit far a way but not to the suppliers. unlike this one..

No, but i'd rather have the Barber guy take it since i have less prospects on the DVD/CD (music and video) selling a success in the future.besides, the last space was longer and has higher rate...but she didn't have to mention those malicious suspecions of his.

Hi LK, Well maybe Ma don't mean anything about it's just that she is conservative and a religious one the idea of third gender is not acceptable to her try to understand you know sometimes because of their age they are not aware of what they are really saying towards to someone. You are so uuhmm.....can't find the exact word to describe your attitude you should buy her a pandesal (bun).

Hello Bhabycatch, I didn't like it at all don't want to blame her for having a trouble some renter but the one i was rooting for seems to be a very nice person and honest businessman. he'd been tricked before when he was supposed to get the other space next to our house, but the LESsOR had a quick mind changing thing. Well, I couldn't believe it what i just heard. just not right. even I didn't let that on my head. my reaction is sure "pissed". i guess it's another Filipino Neg reaction perse. so what if she's a member of a religious group...it's exactly why i don't go much to church, like i said before i don't want to end up hypocrite. besides, there's already food in the fridge enough for the three of them.

@jaiho Didi, how about finding more rental space in front of this space... where you can rent out all the customers who will buy your perfume And then I would ask letranknight (or even you) to get me some space to start the broker business.

Yes it is discrimination but what can you do?? My boyfriends mother is such a wonderful woman in general but she too will say things right out and straight forward. She will not stand anyone calling her discriminative and will swear she is not. Funny though she is Caucasian and I am Puerto Rican, so normally "people like Puerto Ricans" in her vocabulary are not good people. What is funny is that she will do next to the impossible for me and my children, lol. She will speak to me on the phone, she lives in another state, and will critic about any Hispanic and sometimes catch herself and say but dear I love you. lol Who can figure them out. My boyfriend and her will fight tooth and nail when he tells her she is wrong, I know better then to fight with her because her ways will never change. I love her though. I guess it is just the way their way raised and or their surroundings so by nature they are suspicious about anything outside of their own race. Does not make it right but what can we do, outside of argue tooth and nail and in the end they still have their ways.

Hello Hardworkinggurl, Well, I hope they ARE THE LAST GENERATION! these people lived in a world where mutual existence or equality doesn't add up. hope GOD can make a better judgement on these people. My moms' involvement in the church has caused me to be inactive in attending masses but i have grown to respect other people. despite of their gender. You know, it reminded me, she did made bad remarks on my ex who happens to be close to a tribe in another province. sometimes, i hated having spanish blood, makes me even lesser than a humble human.

We usually say discriminating things when we are angry. We should therefore be always watchful and be more educated because walls have ears.

wow.. it seems your family is pretty well off because of having a space for rent business! anyway, I think your mom may have seen something that has caused her to say such to that gay renter. However, just dont mind her if you think that the renter is doing nothing malicious and just selling fruits.
