"Barya lang ang natitira sa kaha"
(only a small amount is maintained in the cash register)
"Wala sa istasyon ang susi ng kaha de yero"
(key to the safe is not available on site)

How's this for a funny explanation of gas station owners pleading robbers to keep off their gas shop? I have seen this a number of times whenever we gas up and has never ceased to make me think how ridiculous this poster is. This display is placed outside the cashier booth.

I would of course understand the desperation of the management and they would really do anything to emphasize their point. It's still funny if you ask me.

Life is unpredictable as it can get. Surprises catch us unaware. In line with this, I know in my heart of hearts that even as I create this blog, sooner or later I will find my niche for this site to embrace. :-)
