Ice Cream House Staff Give Free Coffee to Old Man Who Didn’t Have Enough Cash

BTF Ice Cream House located in front of St. Luke’s Medical Center in Metro Manila, Philippines sells coffee at Php30 ($0.63) but though the price is certainly much cheaper than gourmet coffee sold in high-end coffee shops in the city, there are still some people who could not afford the price tag.

One of these is an old man who figured in a heartwarming moment witnessed by netizen Jasper Costales. He shared on Facebook how he overheard the old man asking the cashier for the price of the coffee.

When told that it was Php 30, the elderly guy slowly walked towards the door. The cashier hurriedly went after the old man and asked whether he did not have enough money to pay for the coffee. The old man did not say anything but his silence was enough to confirm that, indeed, he was short on cash for that cup of coffee.

So, the cashier assisted him towards a table where he was asked to sit and wait because they will just give him coffee for free! Then, even though they knew he could not afford to have anything else, they also offered to give him anything else he needed but the old man politely declined.

Costales also noted that even though they gave the old man free coffee, the staff “served the man as they would a normal customer”.

Admiring their kindness, Costales took a photo of the two employees who assisted the old man and posted the story on social media. As expected, the story went viral and these two kind people won the internet!

Kudos to both of you…

In the Philippines, most of us are raised to be family oriented. Most of the time, when the parents of a household is already 60 or older, their kids usually let them stay at home and then take care of the bills and expenses.

On the other hand, there are parents that we can’t help but admire for working hard to be able to provide for their family even when they are already old.

More so when they are working abroad and are sacrificing the hardship of being far from their family. This is the story that one netizen who is working in Hong Kong shared.

Facebook User, Amelou Saqueza shared photos of her and an old man who appears to still be a Jollibee crew despite his age.

Saqueza’s post confirmed it that the old man, whom she said was called Tatay Tony was indeed a Jollibee crew in Hong Kong where she is currently working.

Tatay Tony has been working in Hong Kong for 28 years already and is now assigned in Jollibee Mongkok.

Saqueza expressed her pride and respect to the people who are still working for their family despite their age.

She also mentioned that in Hong Kong there is no age discrimination. Tatay Tony shared to her that there are some that are still working in Hong Kong even if they are already 74 years old.

Comments on her post confirmed that senior citizens are indeed helped by most Asian countries so they can still work if they still want to.

Posts like this bring out the pride and respect that we have for OFWs who are working hard far from their families.

What is age discrimination

In some countries, people are forced to resign from their work when they reach a certain age (commonly 60 years old) even if they are still strong enough to work.

Some companies also prefer younger workers even if the older one is more established and qualified.

Jollibee Crew Surprises A Couple Diner When He Revealed He Was The Kid They Used To Help

In the Philippines, a lot of young children are begging in the streets, or if they are a bit more motivated, they sell small things like Sampaguita or rags to people they see on the streets so they can earn money for food or their family.

Sometimes, people build a special bond when a beggar or a child seller becomes their “suki.” As time goes by, the helping just becomes automatic for some people. Most of the time, they don’t even know what happens to the kids they used to help before, they just continue to help the new kids that are selling.

A nice couple from Junction Baliwag is lucky enough to know what happened to the kid they used to buy Sampaguita from.

Facebook user Rhyzz Canasa – Balanday narrated in an Instagram post that she and her husband were about to eat at Jollibee Junction Baliwag.

Seeing that there were no empty tables, they approached the table with leftover food from the previous diners.

As the crew is cleaning their table, her husband asked her about the kid that used to sell them Sampaguita around the area. They were wondering where the kid was now because the kid was always there whenever they dined in that branch.

So nag dinner kmi kanina ng asawa ko sa Jollibee junction baliwag. Ang daming tao halos wala ng vacant na table. Tapos may isang vacant table n Puno pa ng food waste tapos my isang crew n lumapit para linisin. While waiting na ma cleanup ung table tinanong ako ni husband kng nasan na kaya yung batang sampaguita vendor n laging nag aalok samin ng Sampaguita every time n kakain kami dun or mag papa gas sa shell oh mag grocery sa puregold.

To their surprise, the crew who was cleaning their table answered.

“Wala na po siya kasi po andito nako sa loob”

(The kid is gone, because I am now here inside.)

Tapos biglang sagot ng service crew, “wala na po sya kasi po andito na po ako sa loob”. Turn out na yung crew n nag lilinis ng table nmin ay yung batang sampaguita vendor n suki nmin.

As a closing to her story, she left a lesson that with perseverance and a dream, there’s nothing that you can’t do. She even said that she won’t be surprised if this kid becomes a manager someday.

Lesson learned: basta masipag ka at may pangarap lahat posible. Hndi na ko mag tataka kung one day manager na sya.

A gorgeous Math teacher has quit her day job to travel the world – and she gets paid big money to do it! Can you believe that?

Growing up, Jessica Hirsch had always thought she would be a teacher for life; that it was her calling. After all, her mother is a teacher and she loves to teach as well.

Back in her teenage years, it was something that she was so sure she would do for the rest of her life. But there was no Instagram (IG) then – or at least she hasn’t created an account yet and discovered its capabilities.

Little did she know that after 7 years of being a teacher, she would quit her full-time day job to focus on traveling the world and working for various brands as an IG influencer!

Just about two and a half years ago, Jessica opened an IG account and began sharing food photos.

I had always been weirdly the person of my friends who took pictures of their food and was obsessed with where they were going next, and no one really related to me. So when I saw that there was this whole world who did the same thing, I was like, wow, I need to be a part of this,” she told Entrepreneur Media.

While her friends didn’t really dig her IG tendencies, the world would soon fall in love with her posts. Her followers quickly grew from 10,000 in the first year to more than 100,000 the following year!

Today, she has close to 360k followers on @ cheatdayeats IG account and has also become a part of @Sonyalpha as collective ambassador. She has also started @yourroomservice which is growing quickly.

According to Jessica, she posts around 3-4 photos each day and has made it a point to try out IG’s latest features. Her first sponsored post surprised her and made her realize that IG is not just a platform to share her photos and experiences but to also earn money.

In June this year, she officially resigned from her job as teacher and has gone on press tours to many parts of the world. Brands pay her big money for her IG posts, even covering all her expenses for the trips. She gets paid to do the things people pay to do!

She’s definitely got the best job in the world, eh?
