Standing proud and mighty is he, in front of a queue of jeepneys. An epitome of confidence and smug. Shouting orders to embarking passengers. Some even stomping the sides of the jeepney for emphasis. Always shouting that there’s still room for 1 or 2 more since the jeep is “siyaman” even though it’s already full to the brim. We, the poor passengers, will then have to squeeze our butts to half its size to accomodate those. Then as our jeepney left, the barker repeats all of the above to the next jeepney in line. Now, you gotta ask, do we really need those barkers?
