Concerned Commuter Shares Photo of Emotional Jeepney Driver Crying After Some of his Passengers Did Not Pay
The heartbreaking photo of an emotional jeepney driver who cried after some passengers did not pay the required fare goes viral online.
Nowadays, jeepney is one of the most popular public utility vehicles all around the Philippines offering cheaper and affordable fares for the Filipino commuters. Most people prefer to take jeepney to reach their destinations and also to save money.
Several jeepney drivers are renting jeep to make a living and they have to pay ‘Boundary’ to the operators. Some of them are only earning a small amount of cash since they have to pay for the rent and also for the fuel.
Recently, a Facebook user named Cristopher Jhon Salve Barda has shared the photos of an emotional jeepney driver who cried after some of the passengers did not pay the required amount.
Barda said that the driver is a kind and jolly person but he became emotional during that time since he also need to earn money for his family. The poor man received P260 from his 26 passengers instead of P416. The concerned commuter also urged the netizens to pay properly.

“Sa mga kapwa ko estudyante sana naman maging considerate tayo at magkaron ng disiplina sa sarili!
Si kuyang jeepney driver yung isa sa pinaka mabait at jolly na driver na nasasakyan ko papuntang CvSU.. Pero kahapon nakakadurog ng puso yung nangyare, nung umpisa ang saya pa nya nung naniningil ng pamasahe samin bago tuluyang umandar nagpapatawa pa sya nung umpisa, pero habang nakakalayo na yung jeep iilan palang kaming nakabayad na.. Nakailang sabi si kuya na paki suyo nalang ng pamasahe pero wala na talagang nag-aabot, sabi ni kuya 26 kaming sakay ng jeep at 16 pesos pamasahe ng bawat isa pero ang nasingil nya lang ay 260 which it supposedly 416. Nung una parang ok pa kay kuya paulit-ulit pa syang nagsasabi na pasuyo nalang ng bayad pero wala talaga hanggang sa nagulat kaming lahat Umiyak na si manong driver 😢 It broke my heart seeing him like that, I can just imagine what if sa parents ko mangyare yun.. Sobrang nasaktan kami sa sinabi nya na “nagtatrabaho ako ng maayos kailangan ko rin kumita mga anak. Sana huli na to ha, sana wag nyo na to gagawin sa iba. Kawawa yung Ibang driver na nakikipasada lang at walang sariling jeep tapos hindi kayo magbabayad” 💔 Natahimik at nalungkot kaming lahat don kase sobra yung sakit at disappointment ni kuya na kitang kita sa pagsasalita nya 😢 Despite of that naging mabait pa din sya sa mga nababa at nagsasabi pa ng ingat at salamat 😢
WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS POST? I JUST HOPE TO REMIND EVERYONE SPECIALLY MY FELLOW STUDENTS NA HINDI MADALI YUNG GINAGAWA NG MGA DRIVER AT MAY MGA PANGANGAILANGAN DIN SILA, KUNG UUGALIIN NATING MAG 123 BAKA MAWALAN NA TAYO NG MASASAKYAN 🙁 PWEDE NAMAN SIGURO TAYONG MAGSABI NA WALA NA TAYONG PAMASAHE IF EVER MAN PERO YUNG PARANG WALA LANG MALING MALI YON MGA SER! ISIPIN NALANG NATIN KUNG SA MAGULANG NATIN YUN MANGYAYARE DIBA!
Ps; Sorry kung mahaba, I just feel like I need to post it para naman makonsensya yung mga mahilig mag 123 dyan. I saw how hurt and disappointed kuya driver was last night and I’m sure gusto nyang i remind lahat na wag nang gagawin yun sakanya at kahit Kanino pa!”
