The unnamed taxi driver who became viral after returning the mobile phone that was left by one of his passengers.

Amid the severe traffic, long work hours, and other difficulties in life, sometimes it only takes a simple act of kindness to turn a bad day into a good one.

Lawrenz Sierra was late for work on Saturday (November 9) morning, so he took a taxi. Unfortunately, he left his phone inside the taxi. He asked his manager to call his phone but no one was answering.

“Hindi ko na din nahabol si kuyang driver. Halos mawalan na ako ng pag-asa na makuha iyong phone ko (I was not able to catch the driver. I almost lost hope of getting my phone back),” he said.

A few moments later, the taxi driver called back the manager saying he will return Lawrenz’s phone.

“Nagpapasalamat ako siyempre. Kasi nagkusa siya ibalik. He even looked for another taxi driver kasi hindi daw siya marunong gumamit ng smart phones (I am very thankful because he returned my phone. He even looked for another taxi driver because he does not know how to use a smartphone),” Lawrenz said during an email interview.

Unfortunately, Lawrenz was not able to get the driver’s name but he gave him a gift as a form of gratitude for his honesty.

“Well deserved naman po si manong sa mga papuri (He is well-deserved of the praise),” Lawrenz said.—AAC (with details from Cianell Camposano)
