‘Don’t dump your garbage’ warning sign
I noticed this sort of warning/notice to public not to dump garbage along this area in Andres Abellana Street in Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City. I find it ridiculous though how the officials of the barangay or the owner of the property wrote it:
pagbutang ug basu
ra dinhing dapita”
Separating “basu” from “ra” is not a good decision. Some people who passed by the area could not help but joke about this warning, saying: “Dili pwede mulabay ug BASU ra dinhing dapita. Kinahanglan naay kuyog nga PLATO, KUTSARA ug TINIDOR, or USA KA LITRO NGA COKE.”
“Basu”, in this context, was used to refer to “baso” or glass/cup used for drinking.
The barangay officials or the owner of this property where the warning was written should correct this notice. Don’t separate “basu” from “ra”. Make it “basura”.
Just call me Ralph.
