Jeepney Ride

It's funny when certain events in our lives occur and we blame it all
to bad luck. What's funnier is the things that we do to counter the
flow of bad energy that causes these so called bad luck or bad events.
At least at that time I thought it was funny, until my friend shared
her unlikely experience.

This story is about my friend and her scary jeepney ride going home.
For those of you who don't know what jeepneys are, they are a popular
means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were
originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and
are well known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating.

My friend went home late after finishing their school project, now
since she lives within the vicinity of the U.P. Diliman campus
(University of the Philippines) it was perfectly safe for her to take
the jeepney instead of taking a taxi in going home during late hours.
It was about midnight when she took the ride home, and she could not
help but notice the driver kept glancing at her through his rear view
mirror and then he would turn to her. (Now all jeepneys have their own
route and do not take any turns and they have to stick to their route
or else there is a big chance that they would run into some cop

she just stayed on the jeep. On the last turn that the driver made,
she noticed that they were back on the route that they were suppose to
be in the first place.

Before reaching the end of the terminal, the driver turned to my
friend and said, "Im sorry if I scared you or startled you! It was not
my intention".. "Could you do me a favor and BURN all your clothes
when you get home".. Wondering why my friend asked why he was acting
very strange. The driver explained, "The reason why I kept glancing
was because your head was not attached to your body when I looked
through my rear view mirror." "That is why I changed my route awhile
ago, hoping we could get away from the bad energy present in that
area, and thats why I want you to BURN your clothes when you get home
because I think its still with you."

Upon arriving home, still shaking from fear, my friend took all her
clothes off and burned them as quickly as she could. A few days later
she found out on the news that the jeepney driver died a day after the
incident. It turned out the warning was not for her but for the
