I went out on a grocery run this weekend, and the taxi I was in had the aircon set to mid-range temperature. Politely, I asked the driver to adjust the aircon since it was so hellishly hot outside.
He immediately lowered the thermostat, saying, “It’s really hot ma’am, because of the global warning.”
I thought I was hearing things, so I verified, “Because of what, manong?”
Driver (loudly, since I seem to be hard of hearing): “Global warning ma’am, because of the hole we have in the sky. That’s why it’s so hot everyday.”
Me: “Ah, okay.”
Alright then, I have been warned.
