The panda has sonic ears and x-ray vision. He mastered this at age seven by watching Bioman.
While eating at the local Buy One Take One Cheeseburger store a block away from his house, the panda witnessed an old man, probably in his early fifties, talking to the owner of a small restaurant adjacent to where the panda was eating his burger.
He wants a job. He seem to have lost a part of his leg.
"Sige na, kunin niyo na ako dito sa restaruant niyo, kahit taga deliver lang ako ng pagkain."
"Kaya lang naman ako humihiling sayo na pagbigyan mo ako para may pambili man lang ako ng gamot. Kasi nga meron akong diabetes, naputol nga lang tong paa ko dahil nainfect to nung nakatapak ako dati ng pako. Siyempre pag may diabetis ka hindi mo namaramdaman yung sakit, hanggang sa lumala na nga at kailangan ng putulin sabin ng mga duktor..."
"Parang tulong mo narin sakin 'to... Kung hindi ko man makayanan ang trabaho dito magreresign ako kaagad, pangako."
"Marami ako pera dati, pero naubos na..."
"Pag nagtrabaho ako sayo, parang sampal narin 'ito sa mukha ng pamilya ko, para mapakita ko man lang sila na may pakinabang parin ako."
You can hear by the tone of his voice his hopelessness. He lost everything with his condition. He used to have a life, but now, is begging for a job and is willing to be paid in scraps.
The restaurant owner was just listening to this old man. She was not saying a word. For some reason though, she had to go. The panda did not see what they have agreed upon.
The old man was left sitting there. After a few minutes, finding himself with nothing to do and no one to talk to, he left, limping his way into the sunset.
The panda, for some reason, lost his appetite. The cheeseburger was twice as difficult to swallow compared to his first bite. It is hard to be happy with a yummy food and to witness a sorry old man almost begging for his life at the same time.
Maybe, some people are forsaken. Poor souls with virtually nothing left. They live in desolate perpetual subhuman conditions, torture, and tears.
On the other hand, some people live with silver spoons in their mouth. The world is their oyster.
Some people are fools.
They don't care.
Nor give a shit.
