A delivery rider took to Facebook and lamented how he was not allowed to pass through because he will be delivering a cake, which is not considered as essential.
The explanation of the rider, as uploaded in Pinoy Tayo Viral, was that the policeman said that people can live even without a cake.
"Pagdidiskyunan po namin ulit kung essential ba yung cake o hindi. Ang katwiran po ng pulis na 'to, sabi niya po sa akin, pwede naman pong mabuhay yung tao maski walang cake."
"Ang lugaw daw po, ganun din."
He was trying to clear it up with the officer as to what they would be doing, and urging him to issue them a ticket so that they could proceed to the next destination.
"Ang nangyayari, hino-horde kami dito, hihintayin daw po nila yung paniket nila."
"Guys, sira ulo to. essential daw ito, wala namang umoorder niyan," said the police.
The rider then told the viewers, "Guys, pasensiya na sira-ulo daw po ako, so hinihintay ko na lang yung ticket ko sir, mga ma'am, na iisyuhan daw nila ako pero until now wala pa."
He further talked to the officer as shown in the video below.
