Filipino taxi drivers get a lot of negative press – that’s why the Grab and Uber business get a lot of support from the public. We’re not saying that all taxi drivers do a poor jo, but surely many of you have encountered ‘choosy’ cab drivers, who will either ignore you when you hail them or refuse to bring to you a certain place because it’s not a part of their route.
A story of a kind Grab driver going beyond the call of duty has become a trending topic all over social media.
Netizen Nix Obispo went on Facebook to share her experiences with a caring driver named Joven.
In her trending status, which has garnered a lot of reactions, she booked a Grab Taxi to take her to the emergency room at the Medical City in Ortigas after she felt a severe pain in her stomach.
Joven, the driver, then took her to the hospital as quickly as he could. Once there, Nix tried to pay the driver. However, Joven refused!
Nix kept insisting on paying the driver, but he wouldn’t have it. In fact, Joven decided to stay and watch over Nix as she was undergoing treatment.
She was given some medicine which made her sleepy. Nix took a short nap and when she opened her eyes Joven was still there – watching over his customer.
Touched by the driver’s kindness, Nix told Joven that he could leave because she was doing much better. Joven, being the nice guy he was asked Nix to keep safe and to contact him once she was home safely.
What a nice man! I can’t imagine any taxi driver who would take the time to stay and watch over their customers.
