Not all heroes wear capes, they say.
Today, John Erick Ami, a student from Adamson, shared an inspiring encounter with the driver of the jeep he rode to on his way to the university. In his Facebook post, he narrated that he noticed his wallet was missing when he was about to pay the fare. What the jeepney driver did will surprise you. Read John Erick’s post below.
“Shout out pala kay Manong ng San Miguel ikot. Pasikatin natin to.
Hindi lang pala sa Uber o Grab nangyayari yun, pati pala sa Jeep.
Papasok ako ng school sa Adamson, pag-sakay ko, hindi ko na makapa yung wallet ko. Tinignan ko na yung buong bag ko tas lahat ng bulsa ko, wala talaga.
Buti kahit papano may tres ako sa bulsa, so lumipat ako ng upuan, duon sa likod niya.
Tas sabi ko, “Kuya pedeng tres nalang nawawala wallet ko”.
Sumagot si manong “Ayan.” Medyo malakas akala ko galit.
“Ayan ang maganda, yung nagsasabi kesa yung mga nanahimik tas hindi nag babayad.”
Pag abot ko ng tres sa kanya, inabutan niya ako ng trenta pesos, tas sabi niya “Baka hindi ka na makauwi mamaya oh, eto pamasahe”.
Mangiyak ngiyak na ko nung panahon na yun, unang byahe palang ni Manong yun eh. Tas di ko inexpect na mag bibigay siya ng tulong, given na ang hina na ng kita ng nga jeepney driver. Pero na appreciate ko kasi kahit pare parehas tayung mahihirap meron paring handang tumulong.
Pag baba ko, nag pasalamat ako kay manong, tas sabi niya “Ingat ka, Anak”.
So ayun, kahit pala gabi may buwan na handang magnakaw ng liwanag para tanglawan tayung nasa kadiliman.”
Imagine, after John Erick told the driver about his missing wallet and that he only had three pesos in his pocket, the driver even praised him for being honest—and gave him thirty pesos so that he’ll be able to pay his fare on his way home!
