un-AUSSIE way of cleansing his ASS!

listening to my favourite radio show is just one of my morning habits during my weekends. and as usual, early this morning, as i woke up, i turned on the radio, and was listening to good times with mo. and they were talking about this news that mo twister had read online, wherein a Filipino worker had been sacked over toilet habits. The 43-year-old machine operator was working for TEI Bohle on a working visa from the Philippines and used water to clean himself instead of toilet paper.

according to Bernabe, he was going to the toilet with a bottle of water, when his foreman saw him, and told him that he couldn't bring that bottle of water in there. he asked 'why not', and his foreman told him that 'it's not good.' Bernabe told him that it's his personal hygiene and it's his way of cleaning his ass. he's not breaking any law, so why couldn't he do that. his foreman told him that he'd report it to the manager. the next morning, he told Bernabe that the manager wanted to talk to him. bernabe explained what happened, and was told by the manager that if he didn't follow the AUSTRALIAN WAY of doing his toiletry visits he'd be terminated immediately. 'Better be terminated sir.'- bernabe quoted.

but what's really interesting here was when mo got the company's phone number and tried to call 'em. there was this I think a customer service representative, answered the phone.. Mo told her that he's calling from a radio show in the Philippines and was asking her about the incident but she told mo that he could just give his email address and they'd be sending their official statement. Mo, silly as he's always been, asked the CSR if it was really their way of cleaning their behind, not using water but toilet paper, but the CSR just repeated her statement and suddenly hung up the phone. that was hilarious.

goin' back, i really think that what they did was invasion of privacy and incursion of one's own belief and culture. yea, given that he's in a foreign land, not his native, but he's there to work, and it's no longer part of the contract he signed that they could wreck this kinds of issues.

ahh, these people give me a complete headache. haha. to all the Filipinos in Australia! better be sure! use toilet paper! just toilet paper! haha.

gillboard said...

kwento ko lang, not to defend aussies kasi mali naman talaga yung ginawa nila.

Pero sa Australia, may mga lugar dun na sobrang drought kaya kahit paliguan ang aso eh iligal.

this is racism, filipino style.

Hindi ko alam kung dapat na sumunod tayo sa kanilang patakaran o dapat natin ipagmalaki ang ating kultura. Ang nagets ko lang, kaya bawal panglinis ng pwet ang tubig sa kanila kasi kulang na kulang sila ng tubig.

Sa tingin ko na terminate siya kasi sinagot niya ng hindi maganda ang superior niya, at hindi dahil sa un-Australian toilet manners.

Regarding sa paggamit ng toilet paper, hahaha! Dito nga (sa Au) walang tap, bucket at tabo na malapit sa toilet bowl; sa mall, restaurant, hotel man o kahit sa mga bahay. Noon naninibago talaga ako, pero ngayon medyo sanay na. May handwash naman at tap pero hindi talaga katabi ng toilet bowl. ***Kung nasa bahay lang naman ako, may timba at tabo na ako dito sa toilet. Pero kapag lumabas, mapipilitan talaga ako siyempreng gumamit ng toilet paper. Hahaha! o",)

[Paano po ba papatayin ang music dito? Medyo hindi po kasi ako nakakapag concentrate magbasa kapag may sounds. SORRY. Sa totoo lang hindi ko nabasa lahat ng nakasulat sa post na ito. Nag-comment lang ako kasi nabalitaan ko na rin itong issue na ito.]

hahahaha that was a nice phone conversation. i think the person who answered the call thought it was a joke hehehe.... malay ba niya na may incident na ganun hahahaha!!!!

i think the aussie's should've let the filipino do it his own way

anyway, nung bata ako, sanay ako sa dyaryo pero hindi binabasa kundi yun ang ginagamit kong pampahid ng jebs...yan ay dahil wala pa kaming toilet at duun kami sa pilapil sa bukid nagbabawas...hahaha
