Is Robert Carabuena worth the trouble to Philip Morris?

Quite unfortunate for Robert Blair Carabuena that he is employed by global tobacco giant Philip Morris International. It does not help the man whose reputation is currently being carpetbombed across social media that he is employed by what is also a much-demonised industry. Carabuena is currently under fire after he was caught on camera assaulting a traffic officer of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA). The 26-second video went “viral” after it was posted on the Internet and since then had been the subject of much online chatter.

The way things are going, Carabuena cannot expect to be cut any slack in the foreseeable future. Yesterday, the MMDA had announced that it will file charges against Carabuena and an online campaign is currently being mounted by “concerned citizens” to pressure Philip Morris to fire him from his “recruitment executive” position there.

Clearly Carabuena finds himself on the wrong side of the equation today, staring up at what has become an avalanche of public opinion. The circus is proving to be a public relations bonanza for the MMDA which, on ordinary days, is much-maligned for being the bureaucratic face of the long-dysfunctional Philippine capital. The alleged “victim” in the incident, trafic officer Saturnino Fabros has become a virtual martyr, single-handedly transforming the blue shade of the MMDA traffic officer’s uniform into the new black

Every time an MMDA enforcer steps out onto the streets to perform his often-scoffed-at duty, don’t you think he isn’t afraid that he could run into a Jason Ivler or a Rolito Go [who were also accused of road rage-fueled acts of violence in the past]? Think about this for a second: Whenever MMDA personnel report for work, they are risking their own safety out there. They have no idea what kind of a gun-toting psycho could be behind the wheel of the next car. They know that. Do you really think Mang Saturnino would resort to a power trip even after seeing the burly fellow driving that Volvo S60?

I saw a photo of Robert Carabuena wearing a Glock shirt and also a video of him leisurely firing a gun in some shooting range. This guy is obviously a gun aficionado. It’s not a stretch of the imagination to assume he was carrying a firearm in his car at the time of the incident. If he was, Mang Saturnino literally had a brush with death.

The only relevant question to Carabuena’s current employer is increasingly becoming quite evident:

Is Robert Blair Carabuena worth standing up for?

The real answer to that question remains to be seen as an official statement released by the multinational cigarette manufacturer opts to take the safe route…

We are aware of the incident involving our employee Robert Blair Carabuena.

The incident happened last Saturday (Aug. 11) and Mr. Carabuena was on his personal time and was not doing any work in behalf of the company when the incident took place.

While the complete facts surrounding the incident are not yet clear to make a full appreciation of the situation, the company would obviously not condone inappropriate conduct by any of our employees.

We understand the matter is being investigated by the authorities and we will monitor developments closely.

Suffice to say, in a big corporation, no employee is irreplaceable. This is specially true for one based in a country where labour is in happy abundance. The argument that Carabuena was “on his personal time” is quite valid and, therefore, Philip Morris cannot be held accountable for nor be fairly associated with his behaviour as such. Unfortunately cold logic like that does not move public perception.

Indeed, risk managers within Philip Morris will merely sharpen their pencils and start calculating return on investment (ROI) on any move to save Carabuena’s hide. It comes down to how much in dollar terms Carabuena is worth to Philip Morris and how much in dollar terms the company’s brand equity gets shaved off with every day the company spends in the media spotlight (from its perspective, the wrong kind) while it remains associated with the Carabuena circus.

The MMDA had already reaped the opportunities to profit from this quaint episode. Philip Morris is likely already mapping out how it plans to cut its losses.

  1. Hey, I think we should cut Phillip Morris some slack. They’re in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” position now.

    We know this may look bad on the company if they keep the guy but it’ll also look bad for them on the professional side of it if the employee decides to sue them and bring his case to the NLRC.

    1. there are thousand ways to skin a cat. PM can ask him to resign, give him an optional retirement, or suspend him for 6 months.

      why pity this arrogant bully? let him suffer the consequences of his actions.

  2. I don’t think it’s fair to bring Carabuena’s job into this issue. It’s going too far. And since they state that it happened during Carabuena’s personal time, they should keep it between the MMDA and Carabuena. I mean, c’mon. Why do we need to take away a man’s job just because he got caught in a street brawl on public news? Have lost respect for privacy? Whoever informed that Carabuena works for Philip Morris is in bad taste. I cannot forgive that.

    That’s just ridiculous.

    1. I definitely agree with you. The occupation of the assailant is not entirely related to the incident and it should not be a part of the issue.

      1. pinch him where it will hurt him most. take away the source of his arrogance… his position, his money… then he will put his feet back on the ground.

        1. Hypocrites!

          Do you mean to tell me the man we saw on the video is not the same man who works with PMI? I bet if the MMDA officer was your dad you’d sing a different tune!

          He deserves what he gets and to me, strip him off of everything he’s got.

    2. What privacy?

      He was caught on video in a public street. No expectations of privacy there.

      The fact that he works for Philip Morris was on his public profile on LinkedIn, before he deleted it. I saw ot myself when I googled his name. Again, no expectations pf privacy there.

      The fact that he is probably one of the infamous Pinoys all over the intereebz right now, and that he may possibly lose his job is nothing compared to what the MMDA guy suffered from. Consider the fact that if this had not been caught on video, nobody wpuld have believed the MMDA even if they hd filed a case against Caabuena.

      The only thing Carabuena doesn’t deserve is a bullet through the head. Anything short of that, he does.

      1. Just because a man’s personal information is available online doesn’t mean anyone has any right to strip him of his job. That’s distasteful and implacable, and that doesn’t make you or anyone seeking vengeance makes them any better than he is.

    3. Phriel and E.C: you guys on drugs? or perhaps relatives of the barney man?
      Do you mean to tell me the man we saw on the video is not the same man who works with PMI? I bet if the MMDA office was your dad, you will sing a different tune you hypocrite.

      Carabuena deserves what he gets and to me, strip him off of everything he’s got.

    4. I agree, dragging PM into the picture is a stretch but having furnished the info of where he works is part of the investigation/reporting process in cases like that.

      PM’s official statement on the matter is, I think, unnecessary but since it created too much noise they were forced to issue one.

      To go back to the question, Is he worth the trouble to PM? I don’t think his situation has reach that level yet. All I know is he’s on the hot seat right now and he knows that his wallet, not the PM’s coffer, is on the line.

  3. I’m not a smoker and I don’t advocate cigarette companies, either. It’s my sensibility telling me that people are becoming ruthless and irrevocably vengeful. Leave the man’s job alone.

    1. Ah shut it, pig. Either you’re carabuena or a relative or friend of the fatso. WHy don’t you come out in the open and defend him in public, you lousy, coward, freak of nature in the ass.

  4. it’s a morality thing. people want bad karma to befall the bad guy immediately. and the fastest way to deliver it would be to cut the source of his arrogance.

    1. So, PM is the source of arrogance. If so, PM should also be charge as an accomplish in the assault.

      Umm, don’t you think you are already twisting the facts too much?

  5. Granted, he is a spoiled rich kid, who probably still lives with his parents- but I do agree with the previous comment that a large part of his arrogance is because of his cushy job with a multinational organization.

    Why should his job not have anything to do with it? The fact that Carabuena is an employee of PMI means PMI owns him. Whether he is on personal time or not. The only reason he hasn’t been fired so far is because PMI knows he is a spoiled rich kid who will likely get mommy and daddy to pay for some hotshot lawyer to sue PMI, and further increase PMI’s bad press since that will likely drag on far longer than the (well deserved) shit storm Carabuena is getting from netizens.

    1. “… a large part of his arrogance is because of his cushy job with a multinational organization.” – RealChangePh

      Umm, does that mean employees of multinational corporations are, by virtue of their employment connection, arrogant? I don’t think so.

      Carabuena transgressed the law. He physically attacked an MMDA aide. Nothing in the incident that would implicate PMI in terms of responsibility or liability. Carabuena is a responsible adult under our law. He is not a minor for us to see him as being “owned” or under the tutelage of PMI. I say, that’s a twisted interpretation of the event.

      Spoiled or not, Carabuena is the sole entity that is answerable under the law to what happened on that video that we’ve seen.

  6. he should be fired from his job. he is HR for philip morris. how can he demand good conduct from employees if his true self have been revealed by his actions.

    let him become a “bastonero” in bilibid, where he is most qualified.

  7. “It comes down to how much in dollar terms Carabuena is worth to Philip Morris and how much in dollar terms the company’s brand equity gets shaved off with every day the company spends in the media spotlight (from its perspective, the wrong kind) while it remains associated with the Carabuena circus.”

    I don’t think anyone would switch from Marlboro/Philip Morris to other cigarette brands just because some neckbeard brawler/employee of theirs was caught on camera hitting another person.

    Masyadong masarap ang Marlboro Black. 😛

    1. I would if I smoked. In America (and yeah I know Hindi Ito amerika), by now he would have already been fired. If I am the owner, those are not the type of persons I would be comfortable having in my company. he needs a a lesson. A lesson to teach all other employees there that they don’t tolerate that kind of behaviour in their employees even outside of their work. But your entitled to your opinion. We have to learn to be cruel to be kind.

  8. This Carabuena guy should be taught a lesson. Obviously, he violated the traffic rules that is why he is asked not to block the wsy. And obviously, he hits the guy because of his ego. An Atenean right? The typical rich guy who thinks that he’s the king of the world. If hr’s really smart(i heard that Ateneans not only has the money,but they also has the brains) then why does he acts with his rage first before he thinks about the consequences? A well-known company hired him brcause he’s an asset,yes. But before he is accepted to do thr job, idn’t hr

  9. If it’s punishments you seek, make Carabuena do community service for a week. Or force him to work as an MMDA for a month without pay so he can place himself in their shoes. Just don’t strip him of his job. Get him on leave for a month and do community service. That’s as far as I am willing to comply with punishments.

  10. Isn’t he evaluated first, as a person and as an employee? The typivsl GMRC thing….it’s written right? And the places where he haf worked for are asked not just his good job done but also how he cooperates with his fellow employees. PMI has been taking goof care of his company. This is a scandal and it could worth not jus a lot of profits, but also respect and dignity between buyers anf businessmen. All of us should make this Carabuena guy suffer for the wrong thing that he’d done. Let us show the world that justice still prevails in our BANSANG SINILANGAN(^_^)/

  11. I think going after his job is really too far. As this incident happened outside his job, it is also safe to say the PM can not fire him with just the incident alone. There are labor laws for a reason, to those who want to keep screaming get him fired.

    I do not condone his actions but I really am on the side of “What does his job have to do with any of this?”

    Whatever the case may be, there is still no case, nor trial or what have you. But leave his job alone. If the findings do end up getting him jail time, then that woul dbe time where his job would be in peril, but you never scream at them to tamper with it as it affects his family as well.

  12. Philip Morris does see this as a problem regarding the Carabuena incident. The company will continue to thrive with or without wild barney. The question is more of moral and not dollars and cents. But this is Philip Morris, am I asking the right question?

  13. I’ve been working in the recruitment field for a decade now, and from an employer’s standpoint, Carabuena just dragged PMI’s name through the mud. PMI is already at the losing end from an employer branding point of view because of the nature of its industry. Then “Barney” here decided to take it further with this public display of arrogance. A tobacco company with a recruitment executive from hell. It’s a total PR disaster and an employer branding nightmare.

    1. strongly agree on your point, pmftc has been working to protect its name since they’re in the tobacco biz. They had a marketing incident which took a life of a person in april, all these tax issues and now, carabuena. It’s not giving them any plus points. question is, will pmftc really keep him knowing he is their recruitment supervisor? How can he recruit now?I wonder who is his boss, can imagine carabuena is a nightmare to work with. Reflects the company values too.

  14. Let him wear that blue uniform and let him stay in the middle of commonwealth. I am sure that even Ateneans will not hesitate killing him!

  15. let the rule of law decide… if he committed a crime and the punishment is removal from his current position in Philip Morris and I guess it’s fair… although it was committed on his free time… he is still a professional (and should be at all times) and he should be the one to be more tactful not the opposite…

  16. He works at a tobacco company for crying out loud! What do you expect from him and his company, human compassion? Yes, they make cancer sticks and they care for you. Irony.

  17. what can an MMDA officer do in this situation? i mean it’s clearly not correct what Carabuena did to this guy, but as an MMDA officer what could he have done when he was being slapped that will not get him into trouble? i mean if all our public officials are as helpless as this guy, no wonder we get bullied around—both ways! we’re doomed!

    1. You are another stupid person who just talk and complain without using your brains. Seriously you are asking these questions?! Seriously!? C’mon how stupid can you be. Every time an MMDA enforcer steps out onto the streets to perform his often-scoffed-at duty, don’t you think he isn’t afraid that he could run into a Jason Ivler or a Rolito Go? Think about this for a second: Whenever MMDA personnel report for work, they are risking their own safety out there. They have no idea what kind of a gun-toting psycho could be behind the wheel of the next car. They know that. Do you really think Mang Saturnino would resort to a power trip even after seeing the burly fellow driving that Volvo S60?
      Hope you would experience what it’s like to work hard, and need money like Fabros, and experienced being bullied by someone like Carabuena and let’s see if you can even think like that. You need some brain booster vitamins Michelle. Use your brains before talking!

  18. Mr. Carabuena was not on company time but it does project a bad image for PMI. PMI can’t fire him just because of that though they better think of something really good to the public. The fact that their name has been brought up because of what he did can be grounds but it is still a little weak. It’s just sad that a company gets dragged into this because of an arrogant employee. He is a recruiter and he should have been a lot more able to handle stress.

  19. There is no way in hell that asshole in the video could be anything but pure evil. Even if you were to block all the noise from social media and analyze the video objectively, he could not be demonized further as he is the devil himself.

    1. Or, perhaps, human. Try to be less vindictive and more objective about the issue. Like a few already said, we do NOT know the full story and what led to Carabueno to fly off the handle.

      As for PMI, the quickest way to resolve the matter, the better which is a very likely possibility. Netizens have a memory of a fish and flock to the next big scandal at the drop of a hat.

  20. Remember that whether you’re on your personal time or not, you’re bringing the name of the company. This is very true to high ranking positions. So I would definitely strip this bastard off from his position and let him learn his lessons.

  21. I disagree. Do you mean to tell me the man we saw on the video is not the same man who works with PMI?
    He deserves what he gets and to me, strip him off of everything he’s got.

  22. I bet he wouldn’t do that if it was cop or a hagad on that intersection. He obviously thinks that the MMDA officer is beneath him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he thinks the same way of the PM employees — those beneath him as trash, and licking the asses of his superiors.

  23. Mr. Carabao-enamo is just lucky we are not in the medieval times.

    After the incident, he better be hiding, or be mutilated in the plaza. All of his fat, one by one, will be burnt to make an offering to Barney!

  24. PM should terminate Carabuena? Smokers will stop buying or patronizing PM just because of the MMDA case as insinuated by some here? Really?

    Hey guys, smoking (Philip Morris, etc.) kills, but people continue to smoke. Whether Carabuena works in PM or not is of no moment. Even if he killed that MMDA guy, smokers will continue to buy and consume PM product.

    Addiction has nothing to do with reputation.

  25. One thing that i would like to say.

    “Carabuena’s job has nothing to do with this incident.”
    YEAH.. YEAH.. Whatever! So what?

    Next time, you should wear Barney Custom before slapping a MMDA Office. So that your personal and professional life won’t be ruined! Kahit makuha man nila anng plate number ng sasakyan mo, maitatanggi mo pa!
    Carabuena, at di ka muna nagpa-advice sa akin bago mo sapakin yung MMDA officer.

    Carabuena you must learn a lifelong moral lesson.
    Let us Teach him a lifelong moral lesson.
    Let him suffer even though public humiliation is enough but
    make it more deeper in terms of consequences.

    Di kami namemersonal pero sa panahon ngayon, kakaunti lang ang taong mataas ang antas sa lipunan na marunong magpakumbaba. Kailangang sirain ang punong dulo o pinagmulan ng ganyang asal. PERA at REPUTASYON.

    DAMN! Kaano-ano kaba ni Carabuena??? @phriel! A week of public service? Month of being MMDA without pay? for that kind of immorality???

    With this high-earner employee??

    Without Pay? Eh ano naman. barya lang sa kanya ang kikitain ng MMDA. Marami na yang naitago sa bangko.

    Baka magtayo yan ng mansyon sa gitna ng daan!
    OR
    Even hire other people with his size and which makes an illusion that he was there.
    OR
    Baka magpasarap lang yan sa gitna ng kalsada.
    OR
    Even worse, baka manapak at may hawak na baril yan sa gitna ng daan.

    NAH……..
    I have a suggestion.
    PROPERTIES AND WEALTH Swap between Carabuena and that of Mr. Fabros. (I know, it’s a bad idea and it’s unfair although i’m not against it)

    Phriel. I have question for you. If you are part of top management of a company. Would you like to risk your company’s name for the sake of your employee? Where you know that there was something wrong done by your employee?

    —————————————————

    It’s you PMI that made him so arrogant.
    Sobrang laki na ata ng sahod na napamudmud ng PMI sa taong yan.
    PMI Terminate Carabuena.
    Let us keep his feet on the ground.
    Strip off everything that he have!
    Ibagsak si Carabuena sa Lupa!

    Give him a new chapter on his life,
    hindi yung babalik siya ng PMI, sasahod, tapos mananapak nalang. As what i said lately, public humiliation is not enough! OK?

    Let him suffer, He would probably apply on other company.
    The company would probably see his public “bad” record and have the difficulty equated to a fresh college graduate to get a job.

    Marami pa din naman tutulong sa taong yan gaya ng kaibigan, his family and his supporter (Phriel and E). Kaya’t impossibleng hindi siya makabangon sa kanyang pagbagsak.

    In my opinion he belongs from a mid-high class family.
    He probably gets the best things in life but
    paano naman si Manong MMDA na naghihirap na sa buhay at ganun pa ang sinapit.

    I know, parehas silang nag-hahanap buhay and unethical to remove Carabuena in his position for no reason pero there was a reason to remove him from his position. Which is he was identified as such and made a negative image on PMI.

    There is the video. That’s why he was identified.

    If I am not mistaken, Tulfo Brothers got Carabuena’s Information through the Plate Number of his car and though LTO. (I’m not bashing anyone. So please, keep off your negative feedback).

    For me, identifying him by a private sector (like TV Networks) through government agencies’ file (like LTO and a such) is illegal. They shouldn’t give any personal information unless authorized and should be penalized to maximum extent if there is something wrong happened in releasing the information.

    OR maybe someone know’s him and leaked his name.

    Be advise that all articles, information and etc published in the internet is guaranteed for public use.

    He take the risk of publishing his information online. It’s not our choice but his. In short, it’s his fault kung bakit nadamay pati ang pangalan ng kanyang pinagtratrabahuhan.

    Carabuena should be busy looking for those people who leaks his name to the public which reveals his full personal information through the help of the internet.

    Pasalamat siya at di nasangkot ang buong pamilya nya sa leakage ng information.

    I will leave you this beautiful quote.

    “A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot…”

    ― Robert A. Heinlein

  26. And I ask of you: how many eyes do you people have?

    Sure, Carabuena did something worth gaping our mouths at, but do you think, THIS INCIDENT is the only thing that’s happening right now?

    At the very moment Carabuena’s bad-mouthing an MMDA officer, there’s a teenage girl selling herself to prostitution, an official taking another share from his pork barrel, Budol gangs hitting on another victim, women and men cheating one another, and – your favorite – domestic abuse of the rich people on their maids and employees. The only difference is, Carabuena’s caught on camera while more other worse things with the whole world past noticing – or even caring.

    Don’t strike me with those ad hominem arguments – no I was never acquainted with Carabuena in any way, or even support him on this matter. I watched his video enough, and I thought, “Oh just file a case against him under some rules about disobeying traffic laws and physical injury.” He’ll of course be charged guilty with the video as sufficient evidence against him. But of course, I had to stop twitching reading all other comments striking him with insults as if the MMDA officer’s their dad. Worse, some video’s even spreading Carabuena’s PERSONAL information for the sake of, what? Destroying his whole life? Oh come on!

    I may delude myself that you may be trolling, but the comments were too many enough for me to tolerate. You’ve got two eyes. Try to think on another perspective. You’ve imagined yourself having your dad as the MMDA officer. But have you imagined yourself having Carabuena as your dad? Don’t even deny yourselves that your dad (and of course, you) can’t be an asshole like Carabuena.

    Media mayhaps be the most powerful tool of mind control. Stop seeing through the lens and start thinking for your own.

    It is sad that a man sees a sky and insists that it is green. It is more tragic that a man sees a sky and ONLY insists that it is blue. People should really stop jumping on bandwagons (especially those that fuel hatred) and think before they jump.

      1. I’ve already read the article (and also commented!) and it really is a good read for pinoys who hate for no reason. Sadly, it seems many of them didn’t exactly understand the point…

  27. “but do you think, THIS INCIDENT is the only thing that’s happening right now?” – crit

    Unfortunately, yes. What he did was wrong. That is the only happening the people saw in the video. But a lot of things happens all around us all at the same time. We can only appreciate their gravity and understand their message according to our senses.

    But whether or not it’s the only thing is immaterial. Either way it does not disprove that it happened or proved Carabuena’s innocence.

  28. IF PM has a morality clause on their contract especially with HR people, then Carabuena should be fired right away. If not … then it is indeed just all about dollars, win or lose for PM. Branding/PR nightmare? PM can turn this thing around and go for a new slogan – “The truly bad boys smoke Phillip Morris.” LOL.

  29. HR professionals must play a key role in ethics management.
    Ethical leadership is vital to creating an ethical workforce, is a leader who cares, listens to what employees have to say, and has the best interests of employees in mind.
     In addition, an ethical leader communicates an ethics and values message. When making decisions, he/she asks “what is the right thing to do?” also role models ethical conduct and conducts his/her personal life in an ethical manner. This role model is trusted by employees and sets an example of how to do things the right way in terms of ethics. An ethical leader holds everyone accountable, and defines success not just by results but also by the way they are obtained.—

    On another note, SERIOUS MISCONDUCT is a valid ground for termination of employment and the following elements must be present:
    1. The misconduct must be serious;-The misconduct to be serious must be of such grave and aggravated character and not merely trivial and unimportant.
    2. It must relate to the performance of the employee’s duties; and,
    Must show that the employee has become unfit to continue working for the employer.-Misconduct, however serious, must, nevertheless, be in connection with the employee’s work to constitute just cause for his separation.-PHIL. LABOR LAWS

  30. I agree that considering the situation he was in, he can no longer be an effective HR manager. How can he be a good employee if his behavior in public will not bring good image to his company?

  31. Dignity in Poverty
    (the way of Saturnino Fabros)
    by: Apolinario B. Villalobos

    Self-respect…..self-esteem
    Poise…. pride….
    All these, we have in us
    But can we hold on to them
    When our family miss not only one
    But all meals in a day sometimes?

    Can we hold on to them
    As sometimes we just stay home
    Instead of reporting to work
    When even loose change for fare
    We have none?

    Can we hold on to them
    As we see our family
    Sit it out at night
    Not a wink of sleep
    Due to the roof that leaks?

    Can we hold on to them
    As we see our children
    Clad in tattered clothes
    Barefooted as they play around
    Or trod the muddy road?

    Can we hold on to them
    When we are berated by others
    Who felt or thought to be slighted
    As we do our job –
    With all sincerity and honesty?

    Temptation is always there –
    Ready to delightedly push us
    Towards the verge of misdeed
    Making us just remorseful later
    Blaming ourselves without end.

    Poverty has been part of life
    Not everybody can be rich
    Contentment then of what we have
    Should be the norm, nobody to blame
    Just feel dignified …most of all –strive!

  32. Saturnino Fabros
    … humility personified

    By: Apolinario B. Villalobos

    When God created man and woman
    Perfection was in His mind;
    In His image they were molded
    But what happened in Paradise
    Was unfortunate, for it proved –
    His creations were weak;
    He could have asked Himself
    How he could have failed.

    Just like Adam and Eve
    Who, with virtues were created
    Around each of us lurks temptation
    And it’s up to us how to resist it
    Which is just waiting to embrace
    The weak who may finally give way
    To uncontrolled desire to burst
    Into uncalled for action he could vent.

    Humility is difficult to live out
    As pride always gets in the way
    But not for Saturnino Fabros
    Who stood tall despite humiliations –
    Blows, berating and all
    From Carabuena brothers –
    Traffic rules violators.

    His lean body unmoving
    And eyes fixed on Robert Carabuena
    Who shouted at him with all his might
    All these Fabros took with all humility…
    Admirable, indeed, as many later saw on TV;
    Pride of Metro Manila Development Authority
    Saturnino Fabros is one great guy to admire –
    A true Filipino… he personified humility!
