Pasahero: "Mama, bayad."I rode the jeep this morning then realized I didn't have any small bills.
Drayber: "Paki-abot lang po ang load."
When the jeep reached the end of the route, I slid my butt across the now empty jeepney seat and told the driver: "Pwede ko ba kayo bayaran ng cellphone load?"
He gave a confused look. I explained. He was surprised by the proposition. Then he smiled and said: "okay lang" (translation: nevermind). I gave him the only piso I had in my pocket.
This idea of jeepney fare payment via pasa-load came from Sir Tommy Lopez. Imagine having this sign inside jeepneys: "God Knows Hudas not pay. Pasa-load ur pamasahe 2 - 09201234567"
Not unlikely. Not unlikely.
P.S. I will pay for two people tomorrow, regardless of which jeep I ride.
