Hindi malaman ni Dra. Vicki Belo kung siya ba ay matutuwa o maiinsulto matapos siyang sitahin nang pumila siya sa senior citizen priority lane noong halalan.
Ibinahagi ni Belo ang kaniyang karanasan sa inupload niyang video noong Huwebes, Mayo 12 na may caption na “my best ‘senior’ moment. should I be flattered or insulted?”
“Hi everyone! I’m about to go to work but I thought I’d share a story with you guys about what happened to me during election day. It’s just a light story because the mood is a bit heavy,” paunang sabi niya.
“So last Monday, when I went to vote, I was with Hayden, Quark, Bianca, and Atom. When we got there, ang haba ng line. Grabe!
“So, for the first time, kahit ayokong aminin, umamin na po ako na senior na po ako. Kasi I saw the line in the seniors, medyo short.
“So I went to the senior line and I said, ‘Excuse me po, is this the line for seniors?’ Sabi ng girl dun, ‘Senior?’ Sabi ko, ‘Yes’ And she goes, O sige, you sit here. What’s your number?’ whatever.
“And then when I sat there, bigla na lang narinig ko from the back, may medyo galit! Sabi niya, ‘Akala ko ba pang-senior lang itong area na ‘to? Bakit nandiyan iyan?’
“Ohh! Should I be mad or happy because she didn’t think I was a senior, and so I guess I’m happy!
“Thank you very much! It’s the best compliment I’ve ever received ‘cause it’s so genuine!” pagkukwento ni Belo.
Katunayan, 65 years old na si Belo. Hindi talaga halata sa kaniya ang edad dahil young and good looking pa rin ang doktora.
