Filipinos from the motherland have the weirdest jacket preferences.

I don't blame my people.

We live in a tropical country with only two seasons.

Wet and dry. Both humid and hot.

It's funny how most of us (including myself back in the day) would bring the nicest jackets out as soon as the sun fails to fully shine. It's more about fashion than function.

Leather, hoody, bubble/down, track, velour, nylon, wind, knitted sweater, rain, trench, wool, etc. Name it and I'm pretty sure I've seen it on the streets of Manila.

I say we should only stick to two kinds.

1. Cotton jacket/sweater for watching movies (it can get really cold inside), visiting not so warm places like Tagaytay or Baguio and at the office (FREE AIRCONDITIONING FTW!).

2. Rain jacket (water resistant) for the rainy weather. Duh.

Which brings me to why I published this entry.

More than a month ago, my coworker borrowed my vintage Nike track jacket. I let her use it since she looked like she was cold. I didn't mind it at all even though she annoyed the shit out of me. There's a reason why my other name is Mr. Nice. Ha ha.

At the end of the shift, I was in a hurry to go home and she was still busy finishing up so I told her to keep my jacket in her locker. A few weeks passed and still no sign of my jacket. No, I never asked for it back since she was the one who borrowed it. She should return it even without me reminding her. That's how it's supposed to be, right? You borrow something. You return it once you're done.

Then one day, it was hella freezing at work and I only had a v-neck on. My coworker Alex told me that I should've brought a jacket. I told him I didn't want to bring one anymore because the other one was never returned. He asked who borrowed it then right when I said the name he said, "Shit! Ikaw rin (You too?)!?! I swear it was like a Seinfeld episode. Turns out the same girl borrowed a jacket from him weeks before she borrowed mine and never returned it also.

I want to know where our jackets are. Does she have a collection of jackets from random people? Is she jacking jackets for her man?

I'm sure if you were in my position you'd try to smash and say "keep the jacket" once you're done. Buwahahahahahaha.

Buwahahaha. She's in one of my recent entries. Pink top.

Good riddance! I think she did you a favor with that jacket! LOL!

I'm sorry my jacket is not up to your hypebeast standards. Buwahahahaha.

If she were smart she'd sell it on ebay as one of your previously owned items. She could make $31,000 right there! lol

$31,000? I doubt it. Maybe 31,000 centavos. Ha ha.
