“Sobrang kaba po. First time ko po kasing makakita at makahawak ng ganoong kalaking pera, Naku, sabi ko po sa sarili ko eh malaking tulong na po iyon sa’kin. Kaya lang po inisip ko mga anak ko at apo. Ayaw ko po na magtamasa sa perang hindi ko naman po pag-aari,” Alvarez said.
The latter never thought of spending the money knowing that someone worked hard to earn it. He found an ID inside the bag and contacted the owner’s contact number. The owner thanked him for returning the bag.
“Sabi ko ‘huwag po kayong mag-alala, ako po nakadampot ng bag ninyo.’ Ayon po, laking pasasalamat po sa akin,” Alvarez added.
Alvarez returned the money and the owner gave him P5,000 as a reward for his honesty. The honest school maintenance worker earns praise from the owner and his family were proud of him.
“Tuwang-tuwa po sa’kin mga anak ko. Proud daw po sila na ako ang naging papa nila. Pati mga kamag anak at buong pamilya ko natuwa,” he added.
