Commuting can sometimes be such a tiring ordeal. Most of the time, traffic rush, pollution, inconsiderate drivers and many others all contribute to a stressful commuting experience. But a tricycle driver is trying to change it by sharing a little bit of sunshine to his passengers.
A Twitter user, aarontooters shared how lucky they were to come across this “special trike.” Aaron said that while a lot of tricycles have passed, “fortunately, this is the one that took us. have a good sunday everyone!”
He shared a photo of the small signage on the tricycle. One stated, “If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.” The short reminder on gratefulness was a quote from US host Oprah Winfrey.
And as icing to the cake, “Kuya driver” even gives free rides and candies. The kind driver has a list of people he’s willing to give a free ride. From birthday celebrants, pregnant women, people on their way to the hospital to those people carrying electric bills, those wearing green slippers, those who have no teeth and people without a fare.
Kuya driver even gives candies stating, “free candy sa pasaherong happy.” Aaron admitted that he failed to get the driver’s name but that he was very accommodating.
A netizen with Twitter handle @simply_ghelo commented that he knows the kind driver. He said that Kuya used to work in Dubai – for 14 years – but decided to go back home. He’d rather work as a tricycle driver and be with his family than live far away. Ghelo added, “ He is sooo kind and humble.”
Netizens praised “Kuya driver” for his compassion and efforts. The post has been likes 98,000 times on Twitter.
