Please respect yourself.

What are you saying?

5. When you guys are taking pictures in public and you see agberos coming.


6. You, the first time they asked you to model for them.

I knew I had it in me.

7. When they wake you up to take pictures because they like the way the moon looks.

What is it?

8. When you see them putting their phone outside danfo to take a picture.

Behave yourself.

Finish na.

12. When their models are flirting with them and ignoring you while you’re there carrying lights.

See my life.

Didn’t you just buy one last week?
