What’s all this about stickers??
One of the 264 PCVs, after being exasperated with Manila one day, said they should come up with a “Manila– It Could Be Better” campaign, with billboards, stickers, etc. You would take the “It Could Be Better” sticker and slap it on stuff that, well, could be better. Like the strangely complicated ticketing system on the train lines. Or the wacky electrical wiring. Or, well, quite a lot of stuff.
Anyway, my clustermate Patrick and I took this and ran with it– and its quickly become a running in-joke with a lot of my batch. During some of the more boring PST2 sessions, Patrick would mime peeling and slapping a sticker on something. Just about anything that annoys us “gets a sticker” now.
Its really quite funny…. Well, maybe you just had to be there.
