Nothing beats doing a good deed.
A tricycle driver earned praises from netizens for returning a newly-bought phone to its owner after his story got shared in social media.
Araw ng miyerkules,april 20, around 11am, sumakay ako ng tricycle papunta sa san jose elementary school para pumasok dahil sa mga kailangang tapusin na paper works. (RPMS) I have with me is my bag, laptop and a paper bag with a brand new cellphone inside it, because prior to that day i have been to robinsons malolos and napakiusapan to buy aircon unit for the school ofis at may nakisuyo din na friend na magabili ng cellphone. Sa sobrang pagmamadali, naiwan ko ang paper bag na may lamang brand new cp. I just realized na hindi ko na pala dala ang paper bag nung tawagan ako ng friend ko na.kukunin na nya ang pinabili nya. I immediately rushed outside the school na baka maabutan ko pa ang driver ng tricycle na sinakyan ko pero the problem is hindi ko maaalala ang itsura nya. Halos maiyak nko and hopeless na maibabalik pa ang cp unit. Pero nung pabalik nko ng school ay may nakasalubong ako na tricycle at tinanong ako na sa akin daw ba ang nasa tricycle nya sabay turo sa paper bag na nasa loob ng sasakyan nya. Halos maiyak ako sa tuwa nung makita ko ang gamit na naiwan ko.
Hindi ko po alam kung paano po kita mapapasalamatan. Bihira po ang mga taong katulad ninyo. Ang buong San Jose Elementary School ay humahanga po sa katapatan ninyo. MABUHAY PO KAYO RODRIGO CERVANTES ng barangay SAN JOSE HAGONOY, BULACAN!
According to the post in the Proud Pinoy Facebook page, the story happened on April 20: the poster was in a huge hurry that they left the paper bag with the new phone (supposedly for their friend) in the tricycle and only remembered it when their friend called to remind them of the phone.
They tried to run after the tricycle, but couldn’t remember how the driver looked like. Dejected that they will get the phone back, they made their way back to the school. On the way back, however, the tricycle driver came back to return the package!
Fate in humanity restored.
