I’m having a hard time with younger co-workers. Any advice on being more patient with self-entitled Millennials?
– Old Man Loagan, 40, Taguig
Ramon: Patience? Remind them about the unemployment situation in the country.
Entitle the self-entitled to find a job elsewhere.
I also suggest you do a talk where you point out that they should value work to get paid more so they could sustain their #Wanderlust #YOLO #Blessed posts or else they would be posting puro #Funemployed ‘saka #NotAllWhoWanderAreLostYungIbaWalangTrabaho.
What’s your advice on balancing the day job with pursuing your artistic passions? Do you recommend quitting your day job and being a rockstar / athlete / filmmaker / DJ full-time?

Ramon: No. Being a Tito means working your ass off and putting all your dreams aside.
‘Yang stage na ‘yan reserved ‘yan kapag nasa midlife crisis ka na o kapag mayaman ka na.
Maaabot mo lang ‘yan kapag nagsipag ka sa early Tito age. Sa weekend mo gawin ‘yan unless super galing mo pwede kang maging pro. But then again, kung magaling ka diyan, dapat magaling ka noon pang hindi ka pa Tito age. Merong mga “late bloomers” pero ikaw, risk mo ‘yan.
What’s your advice on how to handle parents and relatives who pester you constantly, “Kelan na ba kayo magkaka-anak?”
– No Baby Yet, 37, Pasay
Ramon: Maaga pa lang i-establish mo na na ayaw mong tinatanong ka ng ganun.
Sanayin mo sila sa mga sagot na, “Matagal pa, Mama. Hindi pa kami ready. Ubos na nga toilet paper namin sa bahay nakalimutan namin bumili, diaper pa ng baby?”
It’s really hard to have children during these times. Busy e.
I think adopting pre-teen children is a better idea. No more waking up at night to change diapers, no more worrying that they’ll swallow pieces of Lego. Tell your parents about how sensible these ideas are and they will stop asking you about having children.
What’s your advice on how to accept your age gracefully?
– Peter Pan, 39, Cebu
Ramon: Accept? Para namang masamang bagay maging Tito. Ang hirap sa atin e, ang batayan natin ng fun at life standards e yung sinet natin nung bata pa tayo.
Dapat habang tumatanders, na-re-realize natin na ito talaga ang pinakamasayang stage sa buhay.
For Millennials, it’s called adulting. For the true Tito, it’s called being a real man.
