Life has a habit of throwing stuff that would test your patience to its maximum capacity, and you'd realize that all you need to succeed is the smallest amount of forgiveness and understanding.
Yesterday (and for the second time, take note), we experienced the slight incompetence of CCP's Box Office.
Around 1:30pm, a companion and l fell in line to buy a Cinemalaya Festival Pass. Once in a while the ticket sellers would let people cut in line for Kleptomaniacs or WiFi Body tickets, which is perfectly understandable if you look at how there are plenty of people spontaneously showing support for these productions.
Beforehand, we had asked the ticket seller, a lady in green, if Festival Passes are still available, to which she told us yes, and that we just wait.
3PM came and the line completely stopped because the Internet, they claimed, wasn't working. Nothing happened until 5pm, when they were already trying to shoo us away because of how unreliable their ticketing system is (pic above).
So out of desperation, we went inside the office itself and asked if it is still possible for us to get Festi Pass.
The lady in the pic replied, "Meron pa naman, kaso wala na yung assigned magprint."
Boom, napanes kami. Lol. That's life. People might piss you off for their ineptitude to do their job properly, but at the end of the day, move on na lang kaagad. There is always tomorrow. Or the day after tomorrow. As long as may available pang Festival Pass.
