One of the reasons I can walk down main street here in Mactan at 3am is because every legit store down the street is paying for all-night security guards to keep an eye on things all night. I am not kidding, you will see a security guard at every legit business.Starbucks, the pharmacy, the mall (Now, most of them are like any other thief..They are that predisposed to seizing an opportunity when it comes up. losing some valuables on an ongoing basis will help you see it a little clearer. Another guy, owned a piece of property and hired a guy to be caretaker for it. Just a “you can afford it” attitude with no pang of guilt crossing his mind or heart. According to the caretaker he hired, pigs kept ‘disappearing or dying’. they see a chance to take something and they take it.
You just have to accept the fact that some people are THAT far gone.It is the first step into Phase 1 of their strategy.. When someone says they are your friend, and you’ve only known them maybe two weeks (or less) and you really know NOTHING about them or their past. here in the Philippines it really helps to have people you know you can trust. It is possible some people may actually be trying to help you. In the Philippines, people are very networked and will often use their family connections to genuinely help you out. Maybe later, but all I wanted to do was have some lunch.When you know you couldn’t locate them if they suddenly disappeared.. If they are genuine, like I said, they won’t be insisting you follow them blindly on some course of action. Let’s say you meet someone new and decide to have lunch with them one day. And like I said, it’s not just strangers you gotta keep an eye out for.For this second group of people the ongoing ‘con’ is how they relate to getting by in life. They aren’t interested in making their life better.They are motivated by one thing; ‘Years ago when my three sons were about 13 years old I took them for a day to Griffith Park Observatory. Later for lunch I took them to Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.
