This is a true incident in US Embassy
Message: This is a true incident:

A 70 year old 'lolo' from the province was
accompanied by a grandson to the US Embassy in
Manila for his VISA interview. The lolo spoke not a
word of English so the grandson translated for him.

The consul told the young man to ask his
grandfather why he wanted to go to the States.
"Bakit daw ho ninyo gustong pumunta sa
Amerika?" the grandson translated. "Sabihin mo
gusto kong makita yung mga anak ko doon." "He
said he wants to see his children there."

Fair enough, that's what the lolo's application
indicated. The consul had another question. "Ask
him why does he have to go there? Why can't his
children just come and visit him here?" The
grandson translated this in Tagalog.

Lolo replied: "Sabihin mo kasi dito pinanganak
yung mga anak ko. Nakita na nila ang Pilipinas.
Gusto ko namang makita ang Amerika bago ako
mamatay." (Translation: "Tell him, my children
were born here. They've seen the Philippines
already. I just want to see America before I die.")

The HEARTLESS consul was unimpressed as he
declared, devoid of any emotion, that he was
rejecting the visa application because the applicant
was unable to speak a word of English.

"Reject daw yung visa ninyo kasi hindi daw kayo
marunong mag-Ingles."

The lolo was equally unimpressed. "Sabihin mo
ito sa kanya at huwag na huwag mong papalitan
ang sasabihin ko. P***** i** niya, bakit siya
nandidito eh hindi naman siya marunong mag-

Translated: "He said- you son of a bitch, how come
you are here... you do not know how to speak in

Taken aback, sense of humor still intact, the
consul relented and approved lolo's visa application
in pronto.

the Phil.), written by Boo Chanco)

go LoLo...mabuhay ang pinoy!
