Abogadong mahilig sumakay sa tricycle, may mensahe sa mga nagsasabing bumili na ng kotse para magmukhang abogado

Viral sa social media ang post ng isang netizen na si Atty. Kathrine Jessica Calano kung saan ay ipinaliwanag nito na hindi makikita sa materyal na bagay kung ano ang iyong propesyon sa buhay.

Ginawa ni Atty. Calano ang pagbabahaging ito sa kanyang Facebook sa kadahilanang nais na nitong sagutin ang mga taong palaging nagsasabi sa kanya na hindi bagay sa kanya bilang isang abogado na sumakay sa tricycle at kailangan na nitong bumili ng sariling sasakyan upang magmukha itong abogado.

“A lot of people would usually tell me “Atty, bumili ka na ng sasakyan mo. Di bagay sayo ang nagtrtricycle. Parang di ka abogado,” or “Atty, bumili ka na ng sasakyan mo, easy na lang yan sayo,” or “Magcar loan ka na, dapat priority mo ang sasakyan.” ayon kay Atty. Calano.

“I would respond with a polite smile. All I could do is to politely smile because if I would respond honestly, I would only come out rude especially when I would point out that being a lawyer doesn’t mean that I should look rich or I should be rich for that matter.” dagdag pa nito.

Ayon kay Atty. Calano, bilang isang abogado ay hindi mo naman kailangan magmukhang mayaman.

“Let me tell you this: you don’t have to prove your professional capacity with the properties you own.”

Another random realization.

“A lot of people would usually tell me “Atty, bumili ka na ng sasakyan mo. Di bagay sayo ang nagtrtricycle. Parang di ka abogado,” or “Atty, bumili ka na ng sasakyan mo, easy na lang yan sayo,” or “Magcar loan ka na, dapat priority mo ang sasakyan.” I would respond with a polite smile. All I could do is to politely smile because if I would respond honestly, I would only come out rude especially when I would point out that being a lawyer doesn’t mean that I should look rich or I should be rich for that matter. Plus, my dad would drop me off in the office every morning so a tricycle commute ride home is no big deal.

“Let me tell you this: you don’t have to prove your professional capacity with the properties you own. I would understand if I am told to consider buying a car for convenience or for safety and security more so if hearings are outside the City. But if I am told to buy one to look like a lawyer? Bro, pass! I don’t need to stage my life just so I can justify my profession. Bibili ako once kaya na ng savings ko. Minsan kasi, we are too judgy no?

“Uy nagtrtricy lang si Atty oh. Di man lang makabili ng sasakyan. Baka kasi hindi malakas ang kita kasi wala siyang clients. Baka hindi matalino.”

“Uy tignan mo yung bahay ni Engr oh, ang liit. Baka walang clients kasi hindi maganda ang gawa.”

“Uy tignan mo si ma’am oh, matagal na yang teacher pero di pa nakakapundar. Hindi siguro magaling yan, kasi kung magaling yan government teacher na sana yan.”

“Uy tignan mo yang nurse na yan. Ang tagal na niyang nurse pero sa apartment pa rin nakatira. Di kasi tumataas ang sahod kasi hindi napropromote. Hindi siguro magaling yan.”

“Reality is, we quantify one’s intellect and skills with the properties and material things he owns. Ang sad no? What we don’t realize is that we have our own priorities, our own timeline. One lawyer or any professional who is only practicing for a year could buy a car or a house in a snap because maybe, that is his priority. While another who is practicing for five years couldn’t buy one because his priority is to save for the education of his siblings, for the medication of an ailing parent, for preparation of marriage, or for charity-who knows? Regardless of priorities and of properties, we should stop equating intellect and skills with wealth. Hindi dahil hindi pa siya mayaman, bobo na siya. Malay natin hindi lang siya corrupt. 

“Is it lack of ambition? Yes if you are lazy. No if you have other necessary priorities.

“What’s my point? Wala. Bahala na kayong gumets. Let me just enjoy my tricycle ride and my coke float in peace.
