“Nagulat siya sakin, sabi niya ‘gwardiya ka?’ oo naman kako, ‘bakit hindi ka nakapagtapos ng pag-aaral?’ sabi sakin,” the guard narrated.
“Eh buti ikaw mayaman na, nakakotse ka na, sabi niya ‘syempre ginamit ko ‘yung utak ko eh, eh diba ikaw ‘yung matalino sa klase non eh bakit ngayon guwardiya lang ‘yung narating mo?'” he added.
Parunquin said that he just try to hide his emotion to avoid embarrassment.
The man also tried to introduce Paruinquin to his wife and couldn’t stop belittling what the security guard achieve in life.
“‘Classmate ko to dati, matalino to pero tignan mo ngayon, ‘yan ang napala guwardiya lang pala ngayon,” he said.

“Nanliit ako kanina sa sarili ko nung sinabi niya na guardiya lang ako. Pero okay lang yun kasi siyempre, may mga tao na sinuswerte sa buhay at may mga tao ding hindi,” the guard said.
“Pero nagsusumikap naman ako. Hindi naman kami isang kahig isang tuka. May trabaho naman ako at ikinararangal ko ang trabaho ko na to kahit na kinakahiya ng ibang tao,” he added.
The video reached millions of likes and shares on social media.
