It isn’t hard to be a good human being, doing good deeds in exchange for nothing.
Cristina Tan is one of those people. She recounts in her Facebook post that it was her first time driving a taxi cab.
She said that her driver suggested that she took another cab because the old cabby told her he was extremely tired.
“While on the road sabi ni tatay (taxi driver) lipat nalang daw ako dahil hindi nya kaya mag drive sa sobrang antok, sabi ko delikado naman kung baba ako somewhere hindi ko alam kung makakasakay agad ako so i insist ako na ang mag drive dahil malayo pa ang bahay ko from our location. At first ayaw niya nahihiya at akala nya hindi ako marunong mag drive ng manual. Pero pinilit ko nalang para maka-idlip sya habang traffic.”
When it was Tan’s turn to drive, she noticed the driver sleeping soundly at the backseat.
“Nung ako na ang nag-ddrive nakatulog agad sya at humihilik pa. Habang nasa biyahe ang dami pumapara sa taxi tapos nagugulat at natatawa dahil babae ang driver. Anyway, 70yrs old na si tatay sabi nya panahon pa ni marcos taxi driver na sya at puro babae anak kaya naghahanap buhay pa rin til now.”
Well, she got home safe and sound. “Ginising ko nalang si tatay nung nakarating na kami sa bahay ko,” she added.
