Pokwang shared a lengthy post on Instagram to praise the GrabFood riders who recently became viral for contributing to help a co-rider who was a victim of fake booking.
On Facebook, netizen Jann Ashley Gabad shared a photo of four GrabFood riders enjoying a pizza. While it may seem like they are enjoying a fun merienda, the story behind it earned the ire of many netizens.
Gabad revealed that one of their co-riders became a victim of “fake booking.”
Since the order was for Cash on Delivery (COD), the rider already paid and picked up the food for delivery before the order got cancelled.
Such an unfortunate incident because the rider had already paid for the pizza. Gabad said the other riders decided to help out their co-riders by contributing money to make up for the cost of the cancelled order. They also enjoyed a slice of pizza each.
Gabad wrote, “FAKE BOOKING Kaya food triping na lang! Ambagan para maibalik ang puhunan ng kapwa rider.”
He also warned those responsible for the fake booking of bad karma. Gabad added, “Nagtatrabaho kami nang maayos pinagtripan n’yo lang.”
He also addressed the issue with Grab asking, “#GRAB kailan ba maayos ‘yung ganitong issue?”
Actress-comedienne Pokwang took to her Instagram to post a lengthy message asking GrabFood customers to be careful and not to cancel their orders.
She wrote, “Karamihan din sa kanila ay mga ama, ama na malinis at marangal na naghahanap buhay para maitaguyod ang pamilya kesa mag nak
aw, naaawa ako sa mga Grab drivers na nag-aabono dahil nagka-cancel ang mga customers kung kelan nakabili na sila. “
“Guys! Kaya maawa kayo sa mga riders ng GRAB FOOD. Sila nag-papaluwal, pumipila, naghihintay at naghahatid ng pagkain sa atin para hindi na tayo lumabas ng bahay. PLEASE MAKE SURE NA TAMA ORDER NIYO and DO NOT CANCEL kapag nakita niyong naka-order na sila ng pagkain niyo,” Pokwang pours her request to the public.
The comedienne also urged customers to give a tip to help the hardworking riders.
