According to her post, she was driving along SLEX when she realized that she did not have enough money for toll. She stopped by Caltex in the southbound lane and asked one of the gas attendants if they had an ATM. They didn’t have one, and she started to panic. After a while, they approached and handed her a few P20 bills to help her out! When she did find an ATM, she came back to repay the gas attendants, and they refused the money, saying they wanted to help without expecting anything in return. Faith in humanity restored!

According to Mei Pop, who posted the story on Facebook:


While I was preoccupied by so many things and SLEx was almost zero visibility because of the typhoon, I forgot that I had to make a pitstop to get cash from an ATM at a gas station just before my exit at Southwoods. That’s after making a mental note that I had to do it since I only had 90 bucks on me and I need 62 bucks more to pay the toll fee. Rattled, I decided to go to the next and last gas station southbound, which was two exits away from where I was, only to find out from the gasoline boys, after briefly telling them about my problem, that no ATM machines were available there.

So I parked the car as panic was rapidly setting in and tried to contact my husband for SOS. At that point, one of the gasoline boys came up to me. Upon rolling the window down, I saw that he was handing over a few 20 bucks and said that he and the others chipped in in order to help me and that they were hoping that the money amounting to a hundred is enough for me to take the next exit and look for an ATM machine.

I was so moved by their kindness, knowing that the money could’ve easily been a big portion of their very limited allowance for the night. Tearing up, I told him that I will get cash and bring their money back right away. To which he responded with “hindi ma’am, tulong na po namin yan sa inyo.” (Don’t, we just want to help you.)

I didn’t know what else to say. I felt like thank you will never be enough for the kind of compassion they extended towards a stranger like me.

After finally being able to get money, I went back to Caltex as promised. They didn’t want the money back but I insisted. I tried to offer a little extra too but they said that they helped me without expecting anything in return. I was simply floored at how amazing these people are!

Thank you again, Shaun, Joel, Orly and Rendel! All of you are living testaments that there indeed is hope for humankind. There should be more people like you! I can never thank you enough. Ever.
