lets cash in!
i got myself a globe sim last week just so i can pay for some online purchases with gcash.
i spent a good part of yesterday afternoon calling the globe business center in san jose. i wanted to ask them if they had a "cash-in" (where you convert your cash to gcash) center in pueblo so that i don't have to take the tricy to their business center. the two numbers i tried just rang and rang and rang. when i called the third number listed, the timid sounding girl who answered said that if its about gcash then it has to be the two numbers i have already tried because she was with the globe broadband office and the business center is another office. i explained to her that i have been trying to call for a VERY LONG TIME but she simply said "try lang ulit man". i gave up for the day.
at mid morning today, i went to the business center. of course the first thing i did when i reached the place was asked the guard, patay malisya, "close office nyo kahapon?"
"open kami ma'am", sabi ng isang guard.
agree naman ang pangalawang guard.
"eh bakit ring lang nang ring ang 992-3935 at 992-3944? sira ba ang phones?"
"ay ma'am nandito kami pero di lang nila sinasagot yang mga numbers na yan"
WHAT ZE EFFFF???!!!
"eh yun yung listed nyo na numbers papano namin kayo ma contact? bakit hindi ninyo sinasagot?" ang high-pitched kong sigaw, este, sabi.
"ma'am busy kasi yung mga tao dito palagi"
okay. fine. i followed the advice of my facebook friends and breathed in, breathed out. breathed in, breathed out. externally calm but internally combusting, i went past the door.
"ay, ma'am, anong purpose nyo?" guard two said.
i wanted to say to request an audience with the sons of don jaime (to kiss them, those cute lads) but i had a feeling it would be pointless so i told him the truth he can manage: gcash cash-in.
everything else was pretty incident free after that , thank goodness.
i am still trying to figure out what is going on with their phone lines. is it because the lines are pldt lines, the sister company of their arch enemy smart? are they trying to make people believe pldt lines are no good? are pldt people sabotaging the globe office phones? has watching too much "24" addled my brains even more?
