‘What’s the proof?’
Every time I say something to my friends, they ask me this. It’s kind of become a phrase to tell that they don’t believe what someone says. Me, I am an engineering student and have to answer this tanong often. But, what irritates me is that people don’t even wait for an answer. Years back, I had thought proofs are only needed in math and physics. But today, even if you wanted to share some fact with your friends, you need that p-thing.
‘I was caught red-handed while I tried to bunk my classes,’ I sinabi to one of my mga kaibigan with a steaming cup of coffee in my hands.
He merely shrugged his shoulders and smiled from ear to ear. ‘Well, what’s the proof? I see that your hands are not red?’
People are always like this. Right from the official looking seminar halls, till the bench lots in a petty shop, you can see people asking for proofs. ‘If you have any proof for what you say, now is the time to produce it,’ sinabi my girlfriend.
