Kind Taxi Driver Goes Above and Beyond to Help Pickpocket Victim Get Home

When we were young, our parents would always teach us to be kind to one another and help those in need. However, growing up, we seem to have lost some of these values. Which is why we always feel that stories of such unexpected kindness are always worth sharing. Hopefully this inspires a person or two, and helps us continue to believe that there is still a lot of good left in this world.

Patricia C. shares her story of some unexpected help from an unexpected person – the cab driver.

Kind Taxi Driver

“This is Mr. Glenmore Cayrel of Griffin Taxi.

I was in Market Market trying to catch a jeepney ride going to Guadalupe mrt station. I had been waiting a long time and there were still no jeeps, so I just decided to hail the next cab that passes. Even before getting on, I already had difficulty finding my coin purse. Thinking that it was just somewhere in my bag, I hailed the cab anyway.

Nung nakasakay nako, hinahanap ko parin pero wala talaga so tiningnan ko na pockets ko how much I have left and I still had mga 140 plus. I told him the truth, sabi ko parang nadukutan yata ako kasi natatandaan kong ipinasok ko pa yung purse ko sa bag ko and then I also asked him na “kuya aabot naman po siguro sa guadalupe mrt yung 100 no?” Tinanong niya bakit daw ba mag mrt ako, san ba ako pupunta. Sabi ko may pupuntahan kasi ako sa Cubao, he asked kung uuwi na daw ba ako paano daw pamasahe ko, sabi ko sa marikina ako umuuwi and may mapapagkunan naman ako ng onting money sa cubao na family friend. Honestly I can’t exactly remember how much yung laman ng purse ko pero sure akong hindi naman abot sa 1k kaya sabi niya mas mabuti na yun ang nadukot sakin instead na cellphone ko. I mean from there andun na yung concern e, I really saw that.

He then offered na either sa Cubao na lang or sa bahay ko na mismo sa marikina niya ako ihahatid. Kasi we talked about how near my house was sa garahe nila. Nahiya naman ako kaya sabi ko ok nako sa cubao, dalawin ko na lang siya sa garahe nila at palitan yung kulang ko. Tapos sabi niya ” hindi, ok na yun ma’am”. Ayun, then nung binaba na niya ako sa farmers, bago siya pumark pansin ko dinadakot na niya lahat ng pera niya sa dashboard. Hanggang sa nung pababa nako, inaabot ko na yung 100 ko, he did not want to accept it then he was giving me everything that he was holding with his 2 hands. I refused to take his money pero I insisted na kunin niya yung 100 ko, yun actually yung photo, pinipilit niya akong kunin yung pera niya. Then I said thank you many more times then I got off. I would surely visit him next week to personally say thank you again.

Rough English Translation

This is Mr. Glenmore Cayrel of Griffin Taxi.

I was in Market Market trying to catch a jeepney ride going to Guadalupe mrt station. I had been waiting a long time and there were still no jeeps, so I just decided to hail the next cab that passes. Even before getting on, I already had difficulty finding my coin purse. Thinking that it was just somewhere in my bag, I hailed the cab anyway.

Once in the cab, I continued looking for my purse but realized later on that it really wasn’t in my bad. So I started checking my pockets to see how much money I had left. I had about 140 pesos. I told Kuya Glenn the truth, I told him that I think I’ve been a victim of pickpocket because I explicitly remember putting my purse in my bag. I then asked him if 100 pesos would be enough to get me to Guadalupe MRT. He asked why I was just asking him to bring me to the MRT and asked where I was really heading. I told him I was going to Cubao. He then asked how I was planning to go home and if I still had cash on me. I told him I lived in Marikina but would be able to borrow some money from a family friend in Cubao anyway.

He then offered to just bring me to Cubao or straight to my house. He mentioned that their company garage was near my place anyway. I was embarrassed so I just told him to drop me off at Cubao and that I would just visit him some other time to pay my balance. He then answered “No, it’s okay” and caught me by surprise.

Upon getting off at Cubao, I noticed he was gathering all the money he had from the dashboard and suddenly insisted on me taking it! I on the other hand was insisting for him to accept my 100 peso payment.  He refused to accept my payment and continued insisting I take all the money he had that time. Of course, I didn’t accept it. That’s actually what I got on photo, the moment he was insisting I take his money. I got off and said thank you many more times.  I would surely visit him next week to personally say thank you again.”

Wow! Doesn’t this story just inspire you? Mang Glennmore could’ve just let Patricia off, he could’ve just brought her to the MRT station, he also could’ve just accepted her 100 peso payment. However, he chose to be better than any of these and bring her to her destination without pay. To top it off, he even offered to give her ALL the money he had on him just to make sure Patricia gets home safely. This story really gave me goosebumps! Mang Glennmore must be one of the kindest people we’ve ever heard of! Thank you sir for your genuine kindness! May there be more people like you!
