This guy’s unbelievable. Bastos talaga.

Here’s an excerpt from the INQ7.net story:

Luli, accompanied by her sister-in-law, Kakai Manotok-Arroyo, and the latter’s young daughter, was on her way to Hong Kong to join her parents, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Jose Miguel Arroyo.

This was how the source recounted the turn of events:

The Arroyos were waiting in line at the Bureau of Immigration’s special lane for diplomats and VIPs when Luli saw that the foreigner had cut the line and the immigration officer had started processing his travel documents.

Luli went over to the officer and asked why he had allowed the foreigner to get ahead of everyone else.

To the surprise of onlookers, the officer snapped at Luli: “Hindi ka ba marunong maghintay (Don’t you know how to wait)?!”

What’s tragic is that the guy doesn’t even get it — that the point is not that he failed to recognize the President’s daughter, but that he shouldn’t have done that to anyone, period.

Of all people, Luli’s someone who has never asked for special treatment or thrown her weight around — those who’ve met her can vouch for that.
