  1. I appreciate what you are trying to do. I just don't see any reason why I should cower to someone on the internet with a power trip. It's not worth it to me. Plus he's been a dick towards me since I joined here. Maybe if the 'leader' wasn't such a dick more people would participate and the forum wouldn't be begging for cash. #justathought
  2. IDGAF. He's a tyrant it seems. What's he gonna do kick me off of an internet website of which there are billions more? OOooo I'm shaking....
  3. Then you need to re-read it before you make comments like that
  4. OMG really? Okay I asked to cancel. They said no. I accepted that. Then after I got mad over the 50 pesos he cancelled because he said he didn't like my attitude. The owner is the one to cancel not me!
  5. This is the link maybe? http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11897039
  6. You know I had a Filipino friend egging me on telling me to 'make them squirm!'. But when I asked him if he will help me when the owner files a complaint against me with the BI he avoided answering directly!
  7. I must honestly say I'm overwhelmed here by the replies. I was expecting replies along the lines of 'If you don't like it go home!'. But you guys took the time to explain why I could've really gotten myself in a really bad situation. I wasn't expecting that. I like being the wrong person to mess with but you're right. It is time to let some things go. Thank you
  8. I appreciate the advise. I know you guys are trying to help. I just see it as if I don't stand against injustice that means endorsing it. I don't ever expect to see that money back. Frankly its not about the money. It was never really about the money. Its about doing what is right and principle for me. I'd rather be 'taken out' as one replier said than just be some punk who lets people treat me any kind of way they want to.
  9. This is what happened: I had a very disturbing incident with a whale shark compsny I booked a whale shark tour with this company it was for 8000 php and I was assured that it was to include transportation and any and all expenses. The driver picked my companion and myself up at my hotel and asked me for 500 php for gas. I felt this was unprofessional but I gave him the money anyway. I asked to cancel the tour but they said it wasn’t possible since everything was already booked. This is common in the Philippines and so I accepted that. When I arrived I began to pay for the rest of the tour and they added 50 pesos for a ‘transfer fee’ of photos. This irritated me since when I booked the tour the owner’s wife assured me that there would be no additional fees. The owner began to argue and curse at me. He called the tourism police I agreed to pay the 50Php just to resolve it but the owner declined since he said he didn’t like my attitude. The tourism police made him refund 3k which means he got to keep 4000 pesos stating that I had to pay for the transportation from Cebu to Oslob. We all know it doesn’t cost 4000 pesos to go from Cebu to Oslob one way. I went to the main police station to file a complaint. The owner also went and said he was going to file a complaint to have me deported in order to intimidate me. I said I wanted my 4k back or at least he could keep the true amount of transport from Cebu to Oslob or I would file a complaint with the department of tourism When I arrived I began to pay for the rest of the tour and they added 50 pesos for a ‘transfer fee’ of photos.

The owner added an extra fee after saying they wouldn't 2. The owner starting cursing and cancelled 3. The owner called the cops 4. He gives a partial refund he keeps 4k saying that was the transportation from cebu to oslob one way. Which is bullshit since the tour was only 8k. That would mean the entire cost the tour would be to-and-from transportation. No businessman would make that deal.
  10. How was my significant other trying to keep me out of trouble? Where did you read that? The equitable solution is to make the thief return ALL of my money since he's the owner cancelled the tour. Why should he get to keep anything if he's the one that cancelled? I can't believe so many people upvoted this answer. Oh well...
  11. I had a terrible experience with whale sharks in Oslob. I was defrauded and the police didn't help me. I want to post a bad review on fb but I heard the BI deports people for stupid reasons including for posting bad reviews. Is this true?
  12. I'm afraid he's right there are rude westerners. I was at PLDT to pay my bill and this French guy was yelling at the clerk. Don't get me wrong PLDT sucks but he didn't need to yell. His FIlipina(s)--there were two of them-- was so embarrassed by him too. I don't even think he took the time to realize that.
  13. Which goes to my next point. I don't understand why Western Expats seem to hate each other so much. The Filipinos know it too which why almost every gold digger I've encountered will tell me some sad story on how an American/European treated them in order to garner my sympathy. Other groups in the Philippines don't hate each other. Koreans for example stick together. Every time I go to DFA and I see a Korean he's got at least 2-3 of his buddies with him to make sure he's being treated fairly. Even the Nigerians stick together. I always see them in groups and they help each other out if there's a problem . Case in point a landlord where I live was very blatant that she wouldn't rent to blacks. Well the blacks got together and caused a big stink over at city hall about it. Long story short she ended up having to pay THEM a settlement!. But every time an American/Westerner complains about a problem I see other expats responding 'no sympathy' or 'you should've known'. 'that's what you get' basically put the blame back on him. I never see whites hanging out in groups.
