Nauuso ngayon ang mga plate numbers na ‘DU*30’.
Wala namang masama kung magkaroon ng ganoong klaseng plaka to show support to our President.
Kaya lang, may iba kasi na ginagamit ang kanyang pangalan para makalamang o makaisa.
I feel for those who think that merely displaying anything that’s labeled with DU30 can get them out of a traffic violation. Alam na natin dapat, by now, that our President is a stickler for following rules – may it be a simple curfew ordinance or an order to speed up the issuance of business permits.
Hindi tinatanggap ng Pangulo ang special or VIP treatment. He doesn’t have self-entitlement issues, kahit pa may karapatan siyang gamitin ang kanyang impluwensiya, being the most powerful person in the land.
President Duterte sends a strong message of wanting to wipe out the entitlement mentality. He wants his cabinet officials to obey traffic rules na walang partiality. It trickles down to even the simplest of rules, gaya ng pagsusuot ng helmet para sa mga motorcycle drivers at riders.
Kaya naman katulad ng ordinaryong pasahero sa NAIA, the President went through the security checks – frisking included. Hindi porke’t makapangyarihan ka ay may shortcut ang proseso.
Para sa ating mga sanay na sa mga government officials na wagas ang pagde-demand ng VIP treatment, it’s rather refreshing to see a President na sineseryoso ang pagiging public servant na consistent ang ginagawa sa mga sinasabi at hindi puro lip service lang.
We finally have a leader who “walks the talk”.
THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
Do you have an entitlement mentality?
Pabor ka ba sa VIP or special treatment?
Are you willing to obey the law of this land?
