READ: Passenger Shares Inspiring Story of an Honest Cab Driver

When in Manila, people are courteous and caring. Most of the time, we are helpful especially, to elders, pregnant, and people with special needs.

Truthfully, we’ve shared heaps of wonderful, honest cab drivers stories on our site, but this story is too good not to share.

Faith in Humanity Restored

A Netizen took to Facebook his astonishment when he met a cab driver by the name of Moreto Fabricante with plate number UVC663.

As narrated by him, he was enlightened by his gesture of returning valuable items such as money and travel documents to his passengers.

According to the Netizen, their story started with a conversation about government, election, corruption, and the person he met, who apparently received spoiled rice during the Yolanda relief operations.

Exact words:

Ok.. Before I go to sleep.. Just wanna share this story. Pampagood vibes lang.
Kanina nakasakay ako sa taxi.. Nagkkwentuhan kami ng driver about government, election, corruption and yung kakilala nyang nakatanggap ng sirang bigas bilang relief good noong panahon ng Yolanda..

Following to that story, he felt nervous when he heard the renowned journalist and radio commentator Raffy Tulfo mentioned the cab driver’s name and plate. The netizen thought the driver did something bad.

Little did he know, the reason behind the mention was to commend him for returning a bag containing 1,200 eurodollars (approximately P64,000) and 700 dirhams, together with passport and documents.

Upon hearing it, the netizen couldn’t contain his curiosity. So, he asked the cabbie: “Sir, pagkakita nyo ng bag ano naisip nyo agad?” (Sir, what’s the first thing that came to your mind when you saw the bag?)

His answer?

Kanina nakasakay ako sa taxi.. Nagkkwentuhan kami ng driver about government, election, corruption and yung kakilala nyang nakatanggap ng sirang bigas bilang relief good noong panahon ng Yolanda.. Habang nakikinig kay Tulfo sa Radyo.. Nakatingin ako sa pintuan ng bintana ng biglang binanggit ni Raffy Tulfo yung plate number ng taxi na sinasakyan ko UVC663.. Mejo ninerbyos ako.. Then.. Binanggit yung name ng Driver na Moreto Fabricante na kapareho ng nakalagay sa ID ng driver ng taxi na sinasakyan ko.. Lalo akong kinabahan.. Kaya tinanong ko sya agad.. “Kayo yun sir ah..” Sumagot sya ng “opo..” After nun binanggit ni Raffy Tulfo na yung driver ng taxi na sinasakyan ko ay nagsauli pla ng bag na naglalaman ng 1,200 euro dollars at 700 dirhams.. Kasama ng mga passport at documents.. At nasa radio station yung owner na isang foreigner para kunin yung sinauli nya na bag.. Bigla syang nakiusap sakin.. “Boss, baka pwede mo itranslate sakin yung sinasabi nung foreigner na may-ari ng bag.. Pinapupunta kasi ako dun pero ayoko kasi makilala ako ng foreigner nahihiya ako.. D naman ako naghahangad ng pabuya..” And tinranslate ko sa kanya kung gaano nagpapasalamat at hindi makapaniwala yung foreigner na naibalik sa kanya yung pera..

Hindi ko napigilan ang sarili ko kundi magtanong.. “Sir, pagkakita nyo ng bag ano naisip nyo agad?”

Sinagot nya ako ng “binuksan ko.. Nakita ko ang daming dollar at mga dokumento.. May passport at mga ID.. Naisip ko kawawa naman yung may-ari nito kasi ang laking pera nun. Baka kailangan nya yun kaya dumeretso agad ako kay Tulfo para isauli..” Nagtanong uli ako ng “hindi pumasok sa isip nyo na kunin or itago?” Mejo nabigla ako sa sagot nya.. “Yung ibang driver na kakilala ko sinasabi sakin na dapat daw hindi ko na sinauli.. ang sabi ko nlng sa kanila.. Buti nlng hindi sa inyo napunta yung bag.. Hindi kasi sakin yun Sir, mahirap mag-angkin ng hindi syo.” Sobra akong napabilib ni kuya. May mga ganito pa plang tao.. Ang nasabi ko nalang sa kanya.. “Sana tularan ka sir ng iba.. Kahit hindi driver.. Kahit ng mga kumakandidato ngayon..” Ang sagot nya sakin.. “Sa totoo lang sir.. Pangatlong sauli ko na yan kay Tulfo”.. Kaya nung bumaba ako.. Nagbigay ako ng magandang tip para manlang kahit papano ay makabili sya ng maayos na hapunan.. Ayaw nya pa tanggapin nung una pero bumaba na ako ng sasakyan pra no choice na sya.. ????sarap lang sa pakiramdam na may makakausap kang ganung klaseng tao.. And also Thank you to Mr.Tulfo sa pagkilala sa mga ganitong uri ng tao. Sana dumami pa yung mga ganung program sa radio ay tv para maishare natin sa iba ang kagalingan ng Pinoy.. God bless kuya and Mr.Tulfo.. Mabuhay kayo.. ????
