“Guys! tulungan po natin itong si manong na naghahanapbuhay, kawawa naman.. binangga po sya at pinabayaan lang sa tapat ng SM Marikina, hindi man lang tinulungan at hindi binayaran ang kanyang paninda.. Paki share na lang po para mapanagot yung nag hit and run kay manong at para matulungan natin sya..
Nakakalungkot lang isipin na merong ganito na mga motorista sa kalsada”
