The Between the Lines

I was about to post a status sa twitter, bilang alam naman nating ang twitter ang bagsakan ng mga emosyon nowadays, in line with facebook status and friendster shoutout at ganun na rin sa http://www.cge.tv, maisama lang. The status would have been this.

“Credit card due date, @BDO_DeditCard website under maintenance. have to withdraw 50K sa ATM to pay in cash. Ambigat sa loob kapag cash.”

Ang abalang pag-aayos ng site.

And then i remember the simple posts on FB at kung gaano kayabang ang ibig sabihin nito. I can’t find the meme, pero parang ganito yung sense. Kumabaga Tutorial ng pagyayabang.

Basic is…

“I’m gonna miss Boracay…”

Pero mas mayabang ang…

“It was so much better in Boracay the second time around…”

Pero ang pinakamayabang…

“Boracay would rank third for me, next to Amanpulo and the Caribbean…”

 

So what would my would have been status say/imply?

1. Mataas ang credit limit ko, which means i am rich?!

2. Marami akong pera sa bangko, at kaya kong abutin ang maximum limit ng withdrawal sa ATM sa isang transaction or limang transaction dahil 10K lang maximum withdrawal sa isang transaction. Which means i am rich?!

But what does that not say?

1. Na hindi pa bayad ang buong bill ko for this month dahil yung fifty na iyun ay partial payment lang. I just have to pay that huge amount  ayokong madagdagan ng 3.5 percent interest aking sangkautangan. Which could still mean na malaki pa rin ang credit limit ko, and i am rich?!

2. Na wala na akong pera hanggang sa next sweldo dahil sagad na ang savings ko sa BDO, At masasagad pa ulit next time dahil sa medyo dahil hindi pa pumapasok sa due date na ito ang second wave ng super gastos ko for the third quarter of this fucking year.

So i decided to make this entry rather than post a simple tweet that might be misread by the kidnappers and mga halang ang kaluluwa. Kawawa naman ang dalawang boylets ko kung sakali, dahil wala akong pantubos. Malapit-lapit na rin kasi ang election, at alam naman natin ang fund raising campaign ng ilang politiko. Mabuti na yung maliwanag.
