I've seen Elmo, the jeepney dispatcher at the SM City terminal in Iloilo many times. Always wanted to get a photo of him, not to exploit the fact that he's a Filipino little person, but just thought it would make an interesting photo, plus I like to meet new people. Handed him a 50 peso note (1.17 US Dollar) and asked if he would mind if my asawa would take our picture. Listen, when I know the minimum daily wage is P265, a little extra cash can help. I dropped down from the sidewalk from where my new friend was standing in order to even the score a bit. I'm six feet tall.To be honest I had to ask Elmo his name twice. I had some difficulty in understanding him, and the best I could decipher was that his name was "Elmo." I shook his hand after the picture and said "Ako si Dave." ("I am Dave.") My asawa and I both thanked him and went on our way inside the mall to do some shopping. Just another day at SM City in Iloilo.
