We know for sure that we couldn’t always get what we want. What’s more irritating about it is that some people are born just to hinder us even from the simple things we crave in life. Yes, we could do something to stop them. But, what if chance made us let the annoying person do what he was born to? Then it becomes more annoying, right? I think you could now guess: yes, one example of it happened to me just this morning. Here’s how it went:
People always crowd the Times (Manila Times Village) area during rush hours, and I’m almost always one of the dozens of people running towards whichever FX taxi stops even if it is private. 😆 When one empty cab pulled over this morning, I was luckily in front of the door to be the first one to board. But, being the gentleman that I am, *teehee* I let the girl behind me board first before I did. Just after sitting comfortably, I’ve noticed the next guy beside me looked to the girl in such a way that he knows her. *oops* But he never said anything. For the whole trip of about an hour or so, he never did talk to her; he just paid both their fares. Now you know that I was the annoying person. 😛
Well, it was his problem, wasn’t it? If he had said anything just as I’ve let the girl ride the cab, I would have let him board next. If he told me after boarding the cab that he’s with her, I would’ve said I was sorry. If he held her in the hand or on the shoulder, I wouldn’t have boarded right after her. (Now I guess he’s still courting herâ€”he would’ve held her otherwise, right?)
Lesson: If you want to keep something dear to you, never let go. If ever you’ve already let go but you realized you want it back so bad, fight for it [or at least talk]. Or else, someone else might just sit between you.

I would have talked to the guy and apologized the moment I realized the situation. 😀 I feel compelled to help him out.. haha It’s not a fault pero i think it would have been “better” if you had. 😀
Maybe I was wondering how one would react to a situation like that. I guess it just came to me that I’d like to see how he’d handle the situation, or better yet that I’d give him a chance to impress the girl on how he’d do it. 😛
very interesting 😀
it happened to me more than once before. When I was still courting my then girlfriend and when we’re “on” already.
What I did, and what I will always do is talk to her and let the person between us feel guilty :p At least in our case, what usually happen was someone will rush to get in the FX or Jeepney after my gf as if s/he’ll die, so I let them feel bad by doing so, to the point that I raise my voice as if I can’t hear her 😉
In your case however its different. It was being a gentleman to the lady and there’s nothing wrong with that, and I agree, he might still be courting her. So if I were him, I will not let that hinder me from communicating with the lady I am courting. I’m pretty sure it is obvious that you let ‘her lady’ get in first and it wasn’t being rude or something.
Personally, you’re not an annoying person 😉 The guy beside you just have an inferiority complex – and well most guys are :p I’ll bet they got a little angry at each other after that :p
Girl: Bat tahimik mo?
Guy: there’s someone between us.
Guy: he’s annoying, he already know we’re together
Girl: Maybe he doesn’t know
Guy: he knows, and you’re so beautiful he wants to be beside you.
Girl: he’s just being a gentleman, you should’ve told him.
Guy: Now you’re defending him?
and you know the rest of the story :p
I couldn’t have said it any better. 🙂
You’re reaction was something I was expecting from him—I would have done it the same way if I were in his position. I guess I was just puzzled that he didn’t for that hour or so. 😛
hahaha! hindi ka naman annoying sa ganun. bakit ba, eh kasalanan niya yun eh diba? sana sinabi nia sayo na magkasama sila, or kung pede palit kayo ng seats. i mean, you wouldn’t even care a thing if he’d tell you that diba? pakielam mo ba dun sa gurl, diba? hehehe, siguro super torpe nun. or nagpapaka-gentleman kuno. hahaha! oh well, lesson learned: huwag maging mute kung nangangati na ang dila mo na kausapin siya. hahaha! 😀 do i make sense? hekz, 😛
I don’t think you’re the annoying person here. Baka naman may LQ sila or something kaya di sila naguusap. heheh. XD anyways, lesson learned: wag maging gentleman. hahah joke 🙂 take care aja 😀
i find your story cute and funny…of course it’s obvious na hindi pa sila, or kung sila man, they were cool about it. kung guy ako and that happens to me and my girl, magpapasalamat pako sayo 🙂
hmmm… its not your fault… they were quiet the whole time and you had no previous idea of their raltionship..
