Tis the Season for "Hold-ups", Robberies, Muggings and Carjackings

When Carlo arrived at the center this morning, he looked harassed. We asked him what happened and he told us, "I got mugged... Again!"
HUUUWWAAAATTTTT???
Yesterday, I nearly arrived late and I told everyone our ride got held up by some accident. Then Carlo asked me, "You got held up too?" I guess he was hoping someone else could relate to what happened to him that day. Tuesday morning, a guy came up to him and asked for his wallet. I'm not sure if the guy had a knife. We think the guy was in dire need of cash kasi he didn't ask for Carlo's cellphone, just the wallet and the money inside, of course. He lost his las P500, his baon for the entire week.
This morning, on his way to work, 4 men held up their jeep. One man brought out a gun. Carlo checked out the gun, it was real. Ilan lang silang napag tripan: Carlo, a student, and this lady who just arrived from Bahrain. I guess they saw Carlo's bulge, the front pocket of his pants, kaya nakuha na cellphone niya. The student had his nN73(?) with him pero wala na ngayon. Ang biro namin, binalikan ang cellphone nya kasi nakalimutan the last time. Hehehe.
Pag dating sa Buendia police station he saw 5 more people filing a report, mukhang maraming nakawan at holdapan this morning. A bus load full of passengers was robbed early this morning, yung oras na petiks ang pulis siguro. An Assumption student had to go to the police station barefooted kasi tinangay ng holdaper ang kanyang sapatos.
Ayus!
Ingat na lang sa mga holdap at nakawan. Tis the season... Malapit na kasi ang Pasko?

Traumatic experience talaga... not neccessarily the lost of an item. But the feeling of 'being intruded'. I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

Iwas tawag pansin din sa pananamit... baka naman sobrang respectable or neon-ish(remember the 80's fad?) ang suot ng friend mo ?

Tsk! kaya dapat pala doble-ingat na ngayon kahit namamasyal sa mall, kasi malamang marami rin holdaper dun. Doble kayod din sila kasi nga malapit na pasko.
