DAD DOES DUMB DEED

Strange News from Abroad

There are ways to prevent your daughter from rejecting a suitor you suggested, but calling in a minibus bomb threat is probably not the best way.

A 65-year old man had been insisting his daughter marry one of his friends. The rest of the family took the daughter's side in rejecting this absurd notion that a father can force his daughter to marry someone against her will. So with the help of the eldest son, the family planned a trip without the family patriarch. The trip just heppened to coincide with the father had set for his daughter's marriage. By the time the father realized what was going on, the family had packed the minibus and were on their way out of town. So the father decided the best thing to do then was to be incredibly stupid. He called police saying a minibus filled with family members was a cover up for smuggling arms and explosives. The police responded appropriately by halting the bus and searching the vehicle. When they didn't find any weapons, they arrested the old man. He is now facing charges and, much to the girls' relief, it seems the wedding plans have been interrupted by the ordeal.

Ha ha ha! Pakialamerong ama! Love and respect are two essential ingredients of a happy marriage. Either the girl doesn't like the man because he is uggggly, or he is too old for her! Very, very common here!

A person who loves has empathy for the loved one. He/she understands and even feels the feelings the other experience.
