A Pinay passenger named Cristina Tan volunteered herself to drive a taxi cab after a 70-year old man told her to get another cab because he was too tired and sleepy to drive.
Cristina wowed netizens after sharing photos of herself driving a taxi cab while the taxi driver was sleeping on the rear bench seat.
According to the passenger, she was basically on her way home riding a taxi. She and the driver discussed a lot of things, including his motivation to work tirelessly despite being 70 years old. The taxi driver explained that his daughters need him and so he continues to drive.
But after a few minutes, the passenger was told by the driver to get down and look for another cab for he was sleepy and he couldn’t drive the vehicle accordingly. However, Cristina volunteered to drive the car to the destination instead of finding another taxi cab. The old man didn’t believe it at first that she was capable of driving a manual transmission vehicle.
The passenger said that right after she took over, the driver went to a deep slumber. He was even snoring according to her.
Cristina went to say that some passengers would hail the vehicle, but would be surprised to see a lady behind the wheels. People applauded Cristina on social media sites for being sweet and treating the old man well. Others also praised the driver for being honest.
Here’s Cristina’s full post: “First time ko mag drive ng taxi. Haha “While on the road sabi ni tatay (taxi driver) lipat nalang daw ako dahil hindi nya kaya mag drive sa sobrang antok, “sabi ko delikado naman kung baba ako somewhere hindi ko alam kung makakasakay agad ako so i insist ako na ang mag drive dahil malayo pa ang bahay ko from our location at first ayaw niya nahihiya at akala nya hindi ako marunong mag drive ng manual. “Pero pinilit ko nalang para maka idlip sya habang traffic. Nung ako na ang nag ddrive nakatulog agad sya at humihilik pa.
“Habang nasa byahe ang dami pumapara sa taxi tapos nagugulat at natatawa dahil babae ang driver. Anyway, 70yrs old na si tatay sabi nya panahon pa ni marcos taxi driver na sya at puro babae anak kaya naghahanap buhay pa rin till now. “Ginising ko nalang si tatay nung nakarating na kami sa bahay ko. Wala lang gusto ko lang i share kasi first time ko.”
