DICT worker clears side on senior citizen’s letter
DICT EMPLOYEE, Baguio City

This is in response to the letter to the editor sent by a senior citizen about an unbecoming employee of the Department of Information Communications Technology, which was published on Nov. 26 under the Week’s Mail column.

To clarify things, may I share my version of what transpired on Nov. 15.

At the time, my officemate and I were happily conversing when a woman approached us inside our office.

That woman asked us: “Ada attorney ditoy?” which I answered courteously “Awan ti abogado mi ditoy, dita ngato ah.” She replied, “Awan met ngamin ti this way (referring to a signboard).”

Contrary to her claim, I answered her courteously contrary to her claim that I answered arrogantly and at the top of my voice.

She then asked if we know how much the law office charges to notarize a document. I replied in a civil manner while smiling at her “Damagem kanyada ta saan ngamin agpapada ti bayad da.” That is contrary to her claim that I was laughing at her and sarcastically said to her “apay abogado ak ta ammok ti charge da?”

There is no reason for me to laugh at, show arrogance or embarrass anyone especially on that moment because I and my officemate were happily conversing.

To you who came that day inquiring, I am truly thankful and I recognize your precious contributions to this nation, which include the source of my salary. If I made you feel embarrassed or disrespected, my apologies to you for feeling that way. In my heart and in my thought, I have no intention to malign you.

My apologies also to my fellow employees because the issue had negatively dragged the name of our office and its employees. I have no ill intention at all. Rest assured that this will serve as a lesson for mending my way in dealing with the public.
