SANA LAHAT NG JEEPNEY DRIVER KAGAYA MO KUYA.. GODBLESS YOU!
This is the sentiment of Facebook user Gener Gv Victor Garcia after witnessing a heartwarming scene inside a jeepney enroute to SM Bacoor on Friday, January 3, 2017.
Awed by what he overheard inside the jeepney, Gener posted it on Facebook on Saturday, January 4, 2017 perhaps to remind everyone that despite the prevailing materialism today’s society, there are still human being like the jeepney driver who remained true to their values.
Here’s the conversation between the jeepney driver and a group of kids:
Bata: kuya pwde po ba kaming makisabay? Hanggang sagana lang po.
Driver: oo naman! Basta yung kasya lang sa upuan ha.
(Tuwang tuwa ang mga bata, siguro mga 8 sila.. 4 na babae at 4 na lalaki puro mga elementary student na naglakad pa ata galing dulong bayan, nung nkasakay na silang lahat!)
Driver: oh basta pag laki nyo tumulong din kayo ha? Baka mamaya pag tanda ko ako naman makikisakay oh manghingi ng tulong sa inyo.
Bata: opo kuya! thank you po ha.
(Nung nauna bumaba na yung 2 lalaki sa may sagana, malapit sa SM! Tinawag ni kuya yung isang bata!)
Driver: Di ba ikaw yung nabigyan ko ng baon kaninang umaga nung papasok ka mag isa?
Bata: opo. Ako po un!
Driver: Bukas ulet baka ma tyempuhan mo ako.
The eight school children took the jeepney ride somewhere in Habay (Bacoor) and disembarked near SM Bacoor.
Gener could only wish that all drivers are kind and helpful like him. He noted that all the passengers alighted from the jeep wearing a smile in their faces.
“Sana lahat ng driver kagaya ni kuya, mabait at matulungin! Lahat kami na sakay nung jeep at naka ngiti na bumaba. Sana pagpalain ka pa ng maykapal at wag ka magsawa na tumulong! Sana lahat ng jeepney driver kagaya mo.”

Update: After the post of Gener Garcia has gone viral on Facebook, a commenter identified the jeepney driver as Sonny Aganan from Kawit Cavite, a barangay councilor. He is known as “Konsi” to his friends and neighbors. His wife is an OFW.
