Sorry, I just can't help it. Call me paranoid but I guess once you start spending money you worked hard for, you always want gain the most out of it.
My wife and I take a cab after doing our grocery and I would always take my sweet time waiting for a brand new looking taxi to flag. My reasoning is that, "mag babayad ka na din lang ng mahal, e di pumili ka na ng maganda na mabango ang amoy at malamig ang aircon." It just ticks me when I see an old and dilapidated taxi still plying its route! My God, they're health hazards already! The alone can already kill you!
I have the same philosophy when it comes to buses. Dun na ako sa maganda, malamig at mabango!
