There was an earthquake around 30 minutes ago, and I was having a teleconference.

“Hi Richard, theres an earthquake.” I said.

I stood up and was about to hang up the phone and realized that it would be tiresome to redial the whole thing again. So I decided to place the handset on my desk.

I was looking at my officemates who were still seated. It looks like they’ve decided not to evacuate.

We resumed with the meeting.

I realized that it would be traumatizing for the other people on the line if they’d be hearing the building collapse or something if ever that happened.

And to think it was only a 3 here in Makati. At least nothing bad happened.

And I imagined my manager saying on the other line

“Jose? Jose? JOSEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!”
