I always see this man on the shuttle station every day when I go to work. He is a “barker” (a Filipino term for someone who calls for passengers) on the shuttle station where I get my ride for work.

He’s good looking but he’s obese. I can’t help but feel for him. I was thinking, there are a lot of diet pills in the market, in fact there’s an appetite suppressant called Phentermine which help reduce weight in obese patients. But why are a lot of people like him seem to be unbothered about their weight or how they look? Don’t they know that having a good body helps in gaining a person’s confidence? I think his size is five times mine.

I don’t know if this man has a wife or a family. But I’m sure, if he’s single and slimmer, he could’ve been a headturner.
