LRT-ology

I'm Dr. Quak Quak. I have been observing and studying the people that rides the LRT (Light Rail Transit). Every morning I ride it and observe the people that goes in and out. I have been conducting this research since a very long time. I have discovered that I could classify people hat rides the LRT. Here are the classifications:


  1. Head/earphones people

    In my observations, I have discovered the class of people who rides the LRT with ear/headphones on their ears. Such people are so hard to talk to because they may not hear you. They can tend to get wrapped up in their own music and at times they can have the tendency to do head bangs, feeling may guitar or drums. Caution: you might also see them doing theirown concert inside the LRT

  2. Nawalan ng CR sa bahay

    Another classification of people riding the LRT is the nawalan ng CR sa bahay (people who lost their bathroom). These kinds of people are the ones who has this big kikay kit in their bag. The kikay kit contains make-up stuff. They make the LRT their own traveling bathroom where they do their make-up for the reason that may be they lost their bathroom or they think that the LRT is their own personalized traveling bathroom or they have no manners and do their make-up anywhere they want. Or simply, they are late for work or this is to conserve time? I do not know. I am afraid that if I approach them they might stab me with concealer.

  3. Swapang

    The classic swapang. These people crowds in front of the door of the LRT. They do not care if people from the inside are going out.All that matters is that they can get inside of the LRT and stay inside.

    These swapang people are inconsiderate people. When they get inside the LRT, they tend to crowd near the LRT even if their destination is 10 stations away. They have no courtesy to the other passengers who are going to go down in the next station. You have to be a great siksikero to be able to get pass them. when you do, expect yourself to be flattened because of them.

    Caution: Meeting these people, you may experience being hotblooded or cursing them. Best of all, you may want to push them which would be the best solution to do but...________________________(fill in blank)___________________

  4. Studentology

    Studentology is one of the most interesting classifications that I have discovered. You can actually play a game with this. The rule of the game is to spot and identify students and from what school they are from. This is a fun game. Tis can be played alone. I have tried and tested this game. One of the difficulties I have encountered is that it was hard to distinguish students from schools that do not have uniforms such as DLSU or CSB

  5. Workaholics

    People who bring their work on the LRT are considered in the workaholics section. These people are usually with portfolios, file cases and the like They can also be talking non-stop on their cellphone or students with notebooks at hand and studying notes. These people may take many forms. as long as people that brings their businessin the LRT, they are considered workaholics.

  6. Nakulangan sa Tela

    Nakulangan sa tela are people who wear clothes that looks like they lack cloth because you might notice that some unnecessary skin might be showing from various places. One of the problems you might encounter that the skin you might see is unpleasant after all

  7. Magnas

    Who would forget our hatable magnas? These magnas are the known MAGNANAKAWS. Be careful of you belongings and hold on to them tightly you might discover you need to visit Greenhills or 168 if you lose your cellphone. Better yet, you might not get to where you are going because someone stashed you wallet. Be very careful.

  8. Manyaks

    True enough, many people get harassed when riding the LRT. Through stories, I have learned that many people get harassed by manyak people. I myself have not experienced this (thank God). I say a word of caution, there are people who are like this and I mean in all GENDERS

  9. Zoo people

    And last, the zoo people. These people are what I consider Zoo animals. You can hear various noise from different species you know. They can be very very loud and get to your nerves or you can just eavesdrop on what they are saying.
These so far are the classifications I have observed. More classifications may occur or some classifications I might not have been indicated. Give me more feed back to confirm these results.

Humans are amazingly interesting. I shall observe more and shall report more of my observations. These observations next time might not be in the LRT. Be careful. I might be observing YOU.

Meron pa ako Lima idadagdag sa suggestion mo, Bihira lang sobra magyayari yun pero nakakita na ako at isa na rin ako dun ngunit hindi po ako "Finding Crushable". Inimbento ko lang un mga pangalan. Haha

Una, "Saktong Sakto"

may tao na alam na alam kung anong oras na may "Free Train" (Un walang tao at pag sumakay ka, may upuan ka nang 90%).

Pagkalawa., "Anti-Swapang"

may tao naman, nakakaiwas sa mga swapang, for instance. Kapag full un train, di na nila kelangan sumakay kasi alam nila na next train ay konti lang tao.

Sure nila na konti tao kapag dumating un bagong train in less than 1 minutes after nang sinakay nang mga swapang. Ayun, alam nila kung kelan sila sasakay at nakakaiwas sila.

Pagkatlo, "Guess, Stand and Sit"

Una, naghuhulaan (Guess) ka kung sino sa kanila na tao na nakaupo at paalis na. Mas madali pa malaman kung alam mo lahat nang lokasyon nang school at school uniform. Kung may isang estusyante galing sa Metropolitan Hospital and nakaupo siya at nasa Tayuman ka, tayo (Stand) ka lang dun kasi pag dating sa Bambang, aalis na siya at may upuan (Sit) ka na (for 80%) boi. :D

Pagkaapat, "Chivalry"

May tao na kabaligtaran nang Swapang. Yun gentleman. Pag me bata o matanda o may kapansanan o buntis. at yun "Chivalry" ay nakaupo siya, pinapaupo un bata o matanda o may kapansanan o buntis. Pag Babae.

Huli, "Finding Crushable"

May tao na walang magawa kundi nanghahanap na crushable. Kapag lalake ka (o tomboy), naghahanap ka nang chicks at pag malakas loob mo, lalapitin mo at susunod ka sa kanya parati upang malaman mo kung saan siya nag aaral o nagwork (Stalker na yan). Pag babae ka (o bakla), naghahanap ka at tingin nang tingin sa type mo. Pag malakas naman loob mo, flirty ka para lang sa kanya.

Ayun, Dagdag na yan. Haha
