“According to my friend….blah blah blah”
If you hear somebody say something like this in an intellectually stimulating conversation, most likely, the “intellectual” part is soon be gone. The worst kind – people who argue with all their might that they are correct just because that’s what their friend says. Come on, people! Read and know the facts before you impart your two cents about a topic, because your thoughts maybe worth nothing. Unfortunately, this scenario, aside from the “how-to-become-a-US-citizen” talks, is common in a Filipino conversation. The very one thing that I disdain. I just have to remind myself that I am a Filipino too. Sad, but true.
