MANILA, Philippines – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque found his Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT3) ride on Thursday, November 23, "not that bad," but commuters were not too pleased by this assessment.
Netizens pointed out that Roque had taken a ride past rush hour, and had a security detail that kept him from experiencing what a truly jampacked train feels like. They described Roque's trip as more of a hassle to the riding public, and challenged him to take the MRT3 daily, end to end, without the aid of any personnel.
Here's a sampling of these commuters' complaints:
