Mr. Cinches shared a short anecdote involving his conversation with the airline attendant shown in the photo.
ATM: NAIA 3 departure area. Check the garbage bins at the right side of the photo. Airport attendant on the left wearing a green polo shirt told me – ‘you haven’t seen the worst sir’ Ganyan ang mga pinoy, sir!
The netizens reacted with anger and dismay with the sight of the callous behavior of fellow Filipinos.

I’ve seen worst last month too, while waiting for our flight to Dumaguete. Grabeee ka undisciplined ang mga Filipino!

Nakakahiya. Ganito ba talaga tayo’ng mga Pinoy? I really despise people who doesn’t know where to throw their garbage. Such manners are first and foremost taught inside the home. Parents please teach your kids where trashbins are so they will grow as responsible adults.

That’s not true at all… One problem in that departure area is that there’s not enough garbage cans… This is Not an excuse to throw your garbage anywhere but the administrator should consider their deficiencies… Shame on you for telling na ganyan ang pinoy… Maybe kasama ka sa nagkakalat but not all pinoys…

Ergo, we cannot blame it solely on the type of people we elect…It is the Pinoy self that needs to change… That should be change that should be forthcoming. No iron fisted not educated leader can do that. I truly believe change comes from within. Don’t blame it on the lack of trash cans either! Put your trash in your bag til you find one!
What can you say about this photo?
