Jeepney is the most common mode of transportation in the Philippines. Aside from being the iconic public vehicle service in the country, Jeepneys are way cheaper in terms of fare compared to busses and taxis.
Recently, a Facebook user named Joseph Meija shared his heartwarming encounter with some Jeepney after he left his flash drive at home.
He told in his post that to be able to get home and accomplish some other works fast, he rode the Jeepney. However, upon finally getting inside the vehicle, he found out that his wallet was missing due to urgency.
He then admitted his thought of not paying his fare and will do a “123” (a native idiom that means leaving without paying.) Fortunately, his conscience took him and decided to do what’s right. He approached the old driver and admitted that he couldn’t pay his fare.
Here is their conversation:
UP Los Baños v/v Calamba city.
Naiwan ko kase yung flash drive ko sa bahay, bali nag decide na ako mag Jeepney para mapabilis yung mga gawain ko pa.
So sumakay na ako, at napaisip ako bigla dahil wala sakin ang wallet ko.
Pag katapos, naisip kong huwag nalamang mag bayad (o 123) ngunit naawa ako sa lolong driver kaya’t sinabi kong wala akong maipang babayad. At sinabi ko na nga ito…
Ako: Manong wala ho akong pambayad naiwan ko ho ang wallet ko
Lolo: Ganon pa toy?
Ako: Oho nakakahiya po sainyo
Lolo: *nag abot ng pera*
(Napansin kong ako lang naman ang sakay ng Jeep, bali hindi ito sukli)
*tinignan lang ang pera*
Lolo: toy kuhanin mo na, idagdag mo sa baon mo
Ako: hindi na ho, sainyo na ho iyan
Lolo: ihahagis ko to sa labas
*tumingin ng seryoso*
Ako: *kinuha na ang pera* salamat ho
Hi Lolo manong driver! Salamat! Kahit sobrang nakakahiya huhuhu!
Kaya kayo dyan, sabihin niyo lang kung wala kayong maipangbabayad, hindi yung gugulangan niyo pa yung mga nag tatrabaho mag hapon!
