a motorcycle blog flipside
I just couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the announcement in a newspaper. The morons at DTI were at it again. Sigh. And I thought that of all the departments in the government, DTI would be THE ONE to have smart guys running things at the top.
Copied this off the Philippine Department of Trade & Industry site:
DTI implements number coding scheme for the inspection and sticker marking on motorcycle helmets
Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Starting August 06, 2012, the schedule for accepting applications for inspection and sticker marking on motorcycle helmets will be done according to the last digit of motorcycle plates:1 and 2 – Monday3 and 4 – Tuesday5 and 6 – Wednesday7 and 8 – Thursday9 and 0 – FridayBring the following:
- Motorcycle helmet
- Two copies of filled-out application form
- Any one of government-issued IDs (driver\\\’s license, passport, etc.)
- Photocopy of government-issued ID
- Photocopy of motorcycle registration
While it was good that they were clearly trying to organize the chaos (that they themselves created, I might mention) at their doorstep, red flags were popping up in my head as I read that seemingly innocent announcement. It was just so wrong that I couldn’t help but comment and write about it.
All this craziness and stupidity was just making me plain sick to the stomach. I didn’t really like calling people names but sometimes when people do stupid things, you just have to call them morons.
So I’ll stop now and just drown myself with caffeine buzz. Strange enough, that always calmed me down. Thank you, God, for coffee and energy drinks.
