Delighting in Treats


Character Actress (CA) seems to be gaining a new reputation among owners of stalls in food markets recently. With the increasing number of food parks in posh locations, CA became curious and joined in to see what the fuss was all about. Naturally, upon seeing CA, sellers were enamored at seeing her walking around and looking at what they have to offer.

The friendlier sellers took chances in calling the attention of CA. They offered her samples for her tasting. CA would get the usual piece and take another if she likes what she has been given. Sellers hoping that CA would buy would get a response that she will still look around. After some time, CA had done her rounds of food tasting and would leave the food park, as she already had her free meal of sorts. The usual sellers noticed that CA would not really buy anything from them, but would just get her share of food sample.

One time, an Innocent Seller (IS) who turned out to be fan of CA requested if he could have a photo with her. CA obliged and posed with IS. IS was so excited and grateful that when CA asked if she could have a sample of his product, he obliged. However, one serving of the roasted pork was not enough and CA asked for one more order. The two orders were quite costly, but IS could not do anything anymore out of embarrassment.

The incident quickly spread and the sellers realized their common experiences. When CA comes over, every one pretends they do not know her and treat her like any other potential customer. After all, they all know the possibility that CA might just ask them for free products and they would not be able to refuse her.

Incidentally, CA has had other similar moments of having a sense of entitlement that she should just get things free and that she should not spend a single cent. As CA has a name and reputation, declining her request seems to be inappropriate. However, what CA does not or refuses to realize is that nothing is free and sellers who succumb to her asking would have to factor her freebie into their costing. The sellers are trying to earn a decent living, but CA and her likes could ruin a business with their asking mentality.

    4. 1:33 Hindi nanghingi si CA ng sinasabi mong 'take out' na 2 orders. "...she just asked for one more order." Yan ang sinasabi sa article. Basahin mo ulit baks, medio mali yata pagka-intindi mo.

  6. pasalamat na nga sila at nakapagserve sila sa artista. itong mga commoners talaga mga feeling entitled! natural lang na di pagbayadin ang artista sa product mo lalo na face to face pa kayo at nakita nio naman na sya musmo ang kumain.

    2. Wow. Ano ang mga artista "gods" na kailangan magpasalamat ang tao na pumupunta sila sa mga ganun na lugar? Sino ba sila? Tao rin naman di ba? Ikaw okay lang yun sayo? Na pag may artista todo asikaso ka? Abusado yung artista okay lang sayo? Buti sana kung inendorse ng artista yung food parks hindi naman. Entitled na freeloader lang siya.
