Of styleness.

I was eating the other day at Chowking in St. Francis and I noticed something. It is as if they had a crash course in training and all of a sudden they were uberly polite. Backtracking the minute I entered the facility, I heard:

Guard: Magandang gabi po sir.

Employee 1: Magandang gabi po sir.

Employee 2: Magandang gabi po sir.

Manager: Magandang gabi po sir.

Wow, there’s an echo inside a small area in St. Francis. It was amusing at first but once you sit there and eat, you’d rather tell yourself, ‘Nag-take out na lang sana ako.’

So, what if this happens? A pope, a dead king, a president, a cardinal, a princess, a monsignor, and a retired basketball player enter the Chowking fastfood resto and they all went there at the same time (let’s say they all came from an imaginary meeting or conference that includes the dead and the living. Much like the Hogwarts universe, wherein the Bloody Baron can rub elbows with Argus Filch and he-who-must-not-be-named Voldiemortie (oh wait… I included his name in here. Cringe. Voldemort, Cringe).

– Manager: Good evening His Holiness Pope Benedict the XVI, His Majesty King Henry VIII, His Excellency President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, His Eminence Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales, His Highness Princess Margriet, Most Reverend Monsignor Soc Villegas, and His Airness Michael Jordan.

– Employee 1: Good evening His Holiness Pope Benedict the XVI, His Majesty King Henry the VIII, His Excellency President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, His Eminence Cardinal Prodencio Rosales, His Eye-ness Princess Margaret, Most Reverend Signor Soc Billegas, and His Airness Michael Jordan.

– Employee 2: Good evening His Oily-ness Pope Benedict the sikstin, His Majesty King Larry the VIII, His Excellency President G Em Ey… and His Airness Michael Jordan.

– Guard:  (Whispers to himself, ‘ano daw? Dapat ako din, baka matanggal ako sa trabaho.) Good evening… uhm… ano… His Hairness Michael Jordan.

–=+=–

It was all gusto with politeness and it wasn’t really irk-y. It was just really weird when they do that. I’m used to the usual buy and ignore scheme (or the not so uberly polite approach). It was more than Starbucks-y in there.

And I do hope I didn’t write anything that might offend any religious sector or any one in particular.

And no curse words in this post that is absolutely good and the effort in finding the right people for the right styles. Yeah, they call these titles styles too. I do hope Wiki is right with these though.

And I already forgot the right spelling for Voldie’s name. It’s Voldemort, right?
