When I arrived there it was almost 9am and there was a long line. Good thing the medical office was empty except the clerk I talked to last Friday. I gave my SSS Card then he said I am no longer allowed to file disability because I already have regular pension. Then he left me standing there. I say he is bastos. He was without manners. He should have told me last Friday not to go there anymore, I wouldn’t have wasted precious time. My e-mail was clear that I am a retiree.
