Kind and Honest Taxi Driver Returns Bag of Valuables

Kind and Honest Taxi Driver Returns Bag of Valuables

Riding a taxi in Manila is not as pleasant as we expect it to be. There have been many horror stories on riding a taxi in the city like the scary taxi holdup shared by a netizen online, the use of knockout gas modus operandi inside a taxi, the airport taxi scam done by fraud cabs in NAIA, the Manila taxi gang, and the Costa Rican national’s bad experience riding an airport taxi.

But this is not always the case.

Last September 15 at around 1:19PM, a netizen posted on his Facebook about his dismay when he accidentally left his bag, filled with valuables, inside a taxi.

The post goes:

NAIWAN KO SA TAXI… UNG BAG KO NA NAG LALAMAN NG

iPAD mini
5 na ATM card
Cash
Remote ng TV 
My original NIkE sling BaG
And mga papeles

Sana makonsensya ung naka kita… Isa uli sakin.

Huhuhu 
#tuliro‬
‪#‎tulala‬
‪#‎depress‬
Nakaka iyak lang 

Rough English Translation: 

I left inside a taxi, my bag that contains an iPad Mini, 5 ATM cards, cash, TV remote, my original Nike sling bag, and some documents. Huhuhu. I feel like crying.)

It seemed like a hopeless case until at around 6:02PM of that same day, he posted this photo:

Thanks God.

Rough English Translation:

Big thanks to this taxi driver because it was his taxi that I was able to ride. I’ve lost all hope that my stuff will be returned. I left it all in God’s hands. But this driver has a kind heart. He even brought the bag to the condo.. to Trinoma.

You are really kind. I hope that you get blessed. Don’t worry, one day I will invite your whole family to dinner so that I can repay what you’ve done. Thank you and God bless. Thank God.)

Not all taxi rides lead to bad experiences. There are some good stories such as this one. To the taxi driver, kudos! We hope that you be blessed!
