Another serious issue in NAIA happened yesterday, January 25, involving an OFW from Hong Kong.
A certain Ron R. Lacson posted his experience of Facebook. The story goes on like this;
She meet this Filipina lady in NAIA, going back and forth near the conveyor belt, where luggage and bags are carried. He was curious as to why the woman seems to be in real trouble. He asked the woman if he can provide any help.
The woman said that she is actually looking to where she could actually get her luggage. He asked for her flight number and fortunately they’ve got the same one. He instructed the lady to get her luggage in the conveyor near them.
But the woman insisted that it’s not the right place because she is an economy class plane ticket. But Lacson insisted that there’s no economy or first class when it comes to the releasing of bags in the conveyor. The woman sarcastically told Lacson that he’s not actually reading signs. She then pointed to a sign stating “First Class Cathay Pacific”.
Basically, the lady got confused with the sign “First Class Cathay Pacific”.
The lady made sure that her luggage will be release in that particular conveyor so she asked Lacson again. She also implied that it’s her “FIRST CHANCE” to go home.
Lacson became curious about her term “First chance” so she asked the lady. Lacson was taken aback after hearing that the lady actually meant “First Time”, but instead she said “First Chance”. The lady even told Lacson that he doesn’t know how to speak English.
The lady asked again if it is Lacson’s “First Chance” (she’s still saying “First Chance” even after Lacson corrected her). Lacson said no and happily said that he’s a “Chance Passenger”.
After a few minutes, they’ve got their bags and met the woman again. The woman asked Lacson if he’ll go somewhere else. Lacson replied that he’ll watch movie first before going home. The woman asked the movie title, Lacson said, “A Second Chance”
Their humorous conversation ended!
