The curious case of disciplined overseas Filipinos

I am just curious though… Why are most Filipinos following rules abroad a lot more than they do in the Philippines? Do they automatically decide to change once they step foot in another country? Or is it because rules and laws abroad are implemented accordingly?

I know for sure there are a lot of A–h0—s abroad but the law doesn't put up with anyone's BS. It probably wouldn't help if someone blurts out — "Do you know who I am?" when caught in a traffic violation. And I'm pretty sure some people have tried to do so. I believe Reese Witherspoon did it once and well, she was handcuffed.

In a personal crisis, sure, you have to be the change you want to see. If you are not happy with your job, change it. If you are in an unhealthy relationship, leave it. If you are failing school, make extra effort to study and do better. But when you step out of your home and unto the city streets…you deserve a peaceful walk or drive to work. You want to be able to trust that the taxes you pay are put to good use and feel it and seet it. You want better health care or better education for a lot of poor families. And in that part, we need our government to be on our side. Work with us. Protect us. Help us make that change that we all are dying to see.
