I had a good chat with Manong Taxi Driver on the way home. He talked about his passengers for the day. He has a list of his passengers and their destinations. In his list, I am the 19th passenger. He shared about those passengers who are generous enough to give him a tip. Others even give him food for pasalubong. I asked him how his income is with the current gasoline rate. He said it’s not a huge amount but enough for his family to eat at least 3 times a day. I was particularly touched when he shared that he can’t resist passengers who have babies and kids with them. Every time he sees such passengers, he remembers the safety of his own grandchildren, that’s why he lets them ride even though it’s already the end of his shift. It’s his own way of doing something good for other people. It’s comforting to know that there are still trustworthy people around despite all the crises around.
