As the old saying goes, “people will judge you not for your intentions but for your actions.” Even if you have the best interest at heart, some people will still misjudge you. This is exactly what happened to this teenager who bought a condom in a drugstore, but the judgmental people were speechless after finding out the truth.
The teenager came to light with the horrible treatment she experienced in a drugstore. Based on her elaborate Facebook post, she bought a pack of condoms as instructed by her mother’s doctor.
While in the drugstore, the old people who saw her gave her bad looks, thinking she was a promiscuous young lady. Several even came up to her and confronted her with unsavory comments such as:
“Grabe na talaga mga kabataan ngayon.”
“Sigurado ka ba jan sa binibili mo iha. Baka nabibigla ka lang.”
“Parewara kang bata ka! Kung ako magulang mo baka nabugbog na kita!”
This unsolicited advice is enough to humiliate anyone, but the teenager chose to keep quiet. When she came up to the clerk, she made a point of showing the doctor’s prescription to show that the condom bought was not for her personal use, but for her terminally-ill mother.
Before leaving the drugstore, the offended teenager left the judgmental people some words of wisdom to ponder on:
“God bless. Sana po wag nyong ulitin sa iba yung panghuhusgang ginawa nyo sakin. Saka nga po pala, may cancer po kasi ang mama ko at kailangan ‘tong condom sa ultrasound nya.”
This post elicited mixed reactions from netizens on Facebook. While some people thought it was a far-fetched story, others supported the teenager and even offered help for her mother. Here’s what they have to say about this:
