A video of a girl berating a lady guard at the LRT-2 Santolan station has been recently making the rounds on social networking sites. According to an article on Inquirer.net, the girl, identified as Paula Jamie Salvosa, had reportedly failed to put her bag on the conveyor belt of the station’s X-ray machine for a security check.
Salvosa had complained about the way she was allegedly treated by the guard, Sharon Mae Casinas, and had demanded an apology. When the guard tried to explain, Salvosa was reported to have shot her down. “So now you’re making me look like a liar. So I’m a liar?” Salvosa had loudly asked repeatedly. The term amalayer, derived from Salvosa’s statement, soon spread on social media, starting debates regarding her actions.
