In the Philippines, especially in Manila, just about any commuter has had the experience of riding a bus, train, or even a jeepney without any seats left. What does a veteran commuter do? Well, we stand up, cling for dear life, and hang on till we get to our destination. That’s what you call the art of sabit.
Who hasn’t experienced this? Sometimes, we even have to hold on tight for like an hour before we get to sit on a not so comfortable seat. Who am I kidding? Sometimes, you don’t get even to sit, period! Especially in the Philippines! Let’s be honest, who here has never seen a bus or a train so full that people are almost bursting?
This is the reality that we face every day, this is the daily life of a commuter.
This Chinese commuter has the heart of a mandirigma and the wits of a genius when it comes to commuting. Without any seats left, she brought out a plunger, stuck it to the roof and pulled through like a champ. Of course, a lot of people were surprised with her tactics with most of them bursting to laughter but they can’t deny that this commuter has perfected the art of sabit!
Of course, when the commuter did it, a lot of people laughed at the spectacle but a true player knows how to respect the game and this commuter’s mandirigma skills are on a different level. Literally, on the roof!
Don’t worry, you won’t be left out because we got the video just for you!
Who knows? Maybe she’s on to something! It’s definitely worth a try!
The video got loads of reaction from laughing netizens.
Of course, a lot of people commended the commuter and are thinking of doing it themselves!
