After numerous reports of malicious encounters over taxi drivers scolding their passengers or at worst a katana wielding taxi driver, taxi commuter Rommel Lopez breaks the streak by uploading photos of a driver but this time because of his good behavior.
The post is about Mr. Eugenio Ventura, a 63-year-old taxi driver that performs his duties with joy and even refusing tips from the passengers. Lopez’s post has been shared for over 120,000 and garnered over 268,000 likes as of posting.
“Sir, pasok lang. Hindi ako namimili ng pasahero. Kahit saan kayo pupunta, ihahatid ko kayo,” he quoted Ventura saying as he was welcomed before entering the cab.
Lopez learned that Mr. Ventura acknowledges the fact that the passengers are paying for a service, which means being nice to them is part of the job.
“Kayo ang pinanggagalingan ng aming kabuhayan,” Ventura told Lopez.
Lopez attempts to give Ventura a P20.00 tip for his joyful approach and good manners but the taxi driver refuses to take it, that’s why Lopez just decided to take snap of his photo to share the driver’s story on social media as a reward. -John Esconde
