Last week I was hindered from taking the LRT because of my baggage: a catapult target made from GI sheets and wood (which you could see on the photo above). I pleaded but to no avail; the guards wouldn’t bulge. In the end, I was told to go back down and wrap it with plastic or any other material. I took the jeepney instead.
They have a point, those guards. But to a certain extent only. I may have only been the one they were able to block but what about the others, probably numbering hundreds, who could have been carrying more deadly and more dangerous materials than my petty contraption. A hundred more objects which could change the day of thousands of commuters.
