We all do crazy things – most especially under the influence of alcohol. It’s what keeps us alive, and keeps gatherings fun when we recount them to our friends. I admit, I’ve done quite a lot, but there’s one crazy thing that I’ll never forget – and hopefully I’ll never EVER do again! After you read this, I’m pretty sure you’ll never forget it, too.
The company that I used to work for was quite small. Back then, they didn’t have a messenger. Wait, I think they did but the management made him do so much errands, that I had to rely on courier service to have packages delivered to the people that I dealt with. One time, I had a project that involved home appliances. Since the items were too big, the courier service gave me a fat no and didn’t want to deliver them for me. So, I did what I had to do – deliver the appliances myself.
I thought to myself – sus, kering keri lang! The person that I needed to deliver the item to, Miss Fabulous (not her real name), lived near my house so I really won’t have a problem with dropping off the appliance. So on my way to Miss Fabulous’ house, I sent her a message asking if it’s okay to drop by at around 9:30pm. She was cool with it, and so I drove going to her house.
As soon as I arrived, I parked in front of their house, walked up to their gate, and gave her a call. She didn’t pick up. I gave her another call and a few messages, still no response.
After 30 minutes of trying to contact her, I was getting frustrated because it was getting a bit late. Plus, may mga manginginom na walang t-shirt sa tabi of her house. Ermahgerd.
I tried to look for the doorbell, but sadly it didn’t work. I was desperately looking for a way to get Miss Fabulous out of her house but then I don’t think I can. So, my genius brain thought..
KUNG SI MISS FABULOUS DI LUMALABAS NG BAHAY… AKO NA LANG PAPASOK.
And what’s the best way to get inside her house?
Jump over the gate. By the way, that’s the actual gate of her house.
I thought it was going to be easy since 1.) the gate isn’t that high and 2.) I’m quite flexible. So I went back to the car to get paper and pen, wrote a note, and prayed to the heavens that no one will see me jumping over the gate of Miss Fabulous.
I stepped on one of the bars on the gate, and made hakbang to the other side. Everything was going smoothly until I heard a dog bark. Shet, yung aso di nakakulong! Shet, lumalapit na siya sakin! I’m not afraid of dogs, but I was just worried that the dog might bite me since technically I was trespassing on his/her owner’s territory. While successfully crossing over the gate and panicking about the dog, the front door swung open and suddenly…
Miss Fabulous: TRIXIE!!!!!
Me: (in my head: SON OF A B- ! WHAT THE F- ! ANAK NG P- !) OMG SORRY HINDI MO KASI SINASAGOT YUNG PHONE MO TAPOS MAY MGA UMIINOM SA KANTO KAYA TINAWID KO NA GATE NIYO!!!!
Miss Fabulous: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Me: SORRY NAGTRESPASS AKO!!!!!
I handed the huge box to Miss Fabulous, made beso beso, and quickly went back to my car. I felt so humiliated, I wanted the concrete floor to swallow me whole. As in, Lord, bakit.
Up until this day, Miss Fabulous and I can’t forget my trespassing incident. Good thing she was very understanding, and didn’t doubt my reason why I crossed over their gate.
I will never ever climb up someone else’s gate. I will write this on pad paper, 100 times.
