MANILA – A glitch in the system of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) caused many to panic about the security of their hard-earned cash on Wednesday.
Nevertheless, others still managed to crack jokes in light of the error that, according to BPI, had “caused some transactions occurring between April 27 and May 2 to be double-posted as of June 6”.
Twitter user Ruben Jay Alvarez’s experience trended on Facebook and Twitter.
Nagpost yung friend ko. Nawalan daw siya ng 23K sa BPI niya.
Pero kahapon sinisingil ko siya sa utang niya, wala daw siyang pera. #DontMe

Twitter user Kim Charlie posted a photo of a supposed bank account containing P12.4 billion, saying the shocking amount wasn’t a glitch at all.

Twitter user Lance Aldeosa had this message for those suffering from the hump day blues.
If you’re having a bad day, just remember you’re not the IT at BPI right now.

Twitter user Jimmy J, meanwhile, seemed to find it a funny coincidence that BPI had apparently posted a recent job opening for an IT security specialist.

And who wouldn’t turn the entire issue into a lament about love?
