It s**ks!!! Really, as in, seriously....I'm one with much patience and tolerance but today, or early tonight, rather, was the last straw on the camel's back. So, here I am sharing with you a horrible thing that I hope would get the concerned authorities' due attention. There is a new elevator now running full swing at the Portal West and the poor thing, not even two months old yet, is already taking quite a lot of beating. First day of operations, a few weeks back, and it didn't take long for the scum bag users to scribble on the shiny interior walls of the elevator. Graffiti is acceptable to me, mind you. But when it boils down to vandalism, that is something right at the bottom of my S*** list. Worse than that, tonight somebody threw spit all over the push buttons of the elevator it made me cringe when I heard it from my niece! How could somebody do something so crass? OK, so I was upset about it because I had to use the stairs (from the 3rd floor) going down, but that's not the point here. Going up and down several flights of stairs is good cardio exercise for me...Hard to believe there are repulsive people out there, right in the heart of Silliman U, at the Portal West where majority of the people who hang out there are students!!!! :( Take it from me, I am there almost everyday so I know. Just recently, bystanders have been banned from hanging out at the Portal West after Bloods and Crips reportedly crossed paths (again!) The SU Founders' Day celeb is fast approaching and alumni and guests from all over the world are coming to Duma. So, what to do about it? Well, one person who learned about the incident suggested to install a spy camera inside the elevator to catch the vandals and hopefully, they will be punished accordingly. Writing on elevator walls doesn't speak much about Duma being the city of gentle people, does it?
