    Ito din yung kundoktor na napaka bastos! Mahilig xa magpababa ng pasahero lalo na yung mga "Mukhang walang pera" yung mga improperly dressed, kasi walang barya yung matanda! Sabi ba naman nya, "Bumaba na lang po kayo, mag pabarya kayo." To think na, tanghali na! at napakadami nyang barya sa kamay nya? Dahil lang sa ganun itsura ng pasahero gaganunin nya?! BASTOS! Dapat jan tinuturuan ng magandang asal!

    AJA 8754 Jasper Jean Bus, Ticket collector W. Garcia! Hey Jasper Jean Mngt. You should have teach your people, especially your ticket collectors a right manner! They are the most disgusting and un-respectful person I've ever see! Especially for this specific bus with plate number AJA 8574, Time: 10:00 AM, Saturday January 16, 2016! I am your passenger for everyday and ofcourse, as an everyday rider of your service, its always a standing for rush hour (as expected)! This "Garcia"(Kundoktor) says "Miss, pakidikit nga lang po sa sa kabila" (Take note! The bus is SO FULL and so HOT. I am a girl and the people around me are boys! Only girls can relate to this!), elders are ranting because of the small space we have and the aircon was not that cool! Then, ofcourse, I answered him in a POLITELY WAY, "Kuya, wag na kasi masikip na at mainit na talaga," Then he undoubtedly and unmannerly says "Miss pwede naman bumaba, hindi naman kayo pinilit sumakay". What the fudge! Is this how you people gives a service to your riders? yes, for without you we cannot have a ride going to our work, but you are not there if you don't have us, as your passengers! FOR ANY WHO OR ANY HOW OR IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! YOU SHOULD HAVE TREAT YOUR PASSENGERS/CUSTOMER RIGHT WITH RESPECT!
