Edgardo, the teacher said, set his things aside for safekeeping and returned it to him.

“Napakabait talaga ni tatay, very approacheable, at pinasakay pa kami sa kanyang jeep para makapunta sa kanilang bahay at makuha ang aking mga gamit, at sinamahan din kami para makasakay pauwi. Maraming maraming salamat din po sa PASAHERO na di nagdalawang isip na i-surrender ang gamit kay tatay.”

[Edgardo is very kind, very approachable, and even allowed us ride with him to his house to get our things. He also accompanied us to the terminal to go back home. Thank you very much to the passenger who surrendered my things to him.]

The FB story warmed hearts as it hails honesty and kindness from fellow Pinoys.
