Kindhearted Man Offered To Let His Sleepy Uber Driver Sleep While He Drove The Uber Car Home

In the Philippines, working day and night may not be able to put food on the table on the daily basis, that is why many citizens take extra work to be able to sustain a good life for their families. This does not exclude this Uber driver who spent the night driving for passengers who witnessed him slowly doze off– while driving!

Allan Yumul Jr. is one of the two passengers who booked Wilbert as their Uber driver from Manila to Pasig, which is an hour away, without traffic. Allan was observing the driver because he was driving at a low speed, and kept on taking deep breaths in between. Later on, he pulled over and confessed that he is feeling a bit sleepy.

The Uber driver moved to the backseat after Allan offered to drive to Pasig instead. He looked really tired and didn’t care who took his car anymore. When they reached the destination, Allan told him that he can rest in his car, outside his house, so that he can drive home safely.

The passenger then shared his experience on a Facebook group called Uber Pilipinas, and wished that the driver was able to go home safely.

While on trip, I noticed medyo mabagal si Sir Uber Driver at lagi siya hinga ng malalim. Then few minutes more di na niya kinaya, he pulled over at sabi inaantok daw siya. I offered to drive us home while he sleeps in the backseat from Manila to Pasig. Pagdating sa bahay we told him it’s okay to park outside so he can rest more so he’ll be more awake before going home to Angono. Hope you get home safely, Sir Wilbert.”

The post was shared on Facebook and got more than 300 shares and almost 9,000 likes. The passenger was praised for his kind gesture while the driver was praised for his honesty and for working hard as well.

A similar thing happened a few months back when a woman took over the driver’s seat to drive herself home while the driver rests in the backseat.

Radio Presenter Reveals Discovery of Daughter Still Texting Her Late Grandpa

Different people have different ways of coping with death, and many do it by ‘talking’ to their dead loved ones even though they know they would no longer get a response. But any don’t think that children cope in this manner, and some even say that kids aren’t as affected with death as adults.

British radio presenter James O’Brien discovered recently that his daughter has been sending text messages to his late dad who actually died 5 years ago!

According to O’Brien, his daughter was still ‘very young’ when her grandfather died; thus, the radio presenter didn’t think he held a lot of impact on the girl’s life or that his death would greatly affect her.

Sometime after his dad died, O’Brien gave his old phone to his daughter. She used it mostly to just play games as the phone didn’t have a sim card with credits from a telecommunication company.

My youngest has had my old phone for a couple of years. Just for games, which I download for her before disconnecting the internet. Still has my old contacts though [and] it turns out she’s been messaging my dad, who died 5 years ago. I may have something in my eye,” O’Brien wrote, as he shared a photo of the text messages.

The photo went viral, with many people saying they also did something similar when trying to deal with the death of a loved one.

That’s so lovely. About two weeks after my Dad died, my four [year] old picked up our phone and had a hushed pretend conversation, then put the phone down and announced, ‘That was Grandad. He isn’t very happy in heaven and he wants to come back!’” wrote another parent, Rachel McCoubrie (@McCoubrieRachel).

What do you think of this little girl and her text messages to grandpa? Cute, right?

Witty Online Seller Wins People’s Hearts With Her Funny Buyer-Seller Conversations

Putting up an online store can be very scary. What if the people don’t like your products? What if there are no repeat orders? What if you can’t grow your following and a lot more what ifs.

But one thing is certain, if you put up a shop, you have to get customers. The method that you use to entice your customer will determine whether they will be curious enough or sold with what you show them.

One “online shop” in the Philippines became viral and is definitely winning the uniqueness game as buyers and page likers flock her page. As of now the page already has more than 100,000 followers.

All this because of the way the online shop brings a twist to online selling.

Stereotype

Normally, online store sellers try their best to be nice to their buyers even to the point of kneeling and begging just so the seller will buy. But then, what makes them different from other sellers? Nothing, they are just like them.

Anna’s Online Store made sure that she is not like the rest of them. With her witty replies and reactions to her buyers, people quickly grew fond of her.

Sounds rude? No, that’s just the way she handles things. The way she delivers her honesty and frankness to the clients made them love her more.

I mean, come on, who would not be entertained by a buyer who answers like this to buyers?

Take this buyer who suggested items for the seller.

What about a kind of seller that tells you that you can’t order any more from her?

When this buyer saw his conversation with Anna posted on the page, he commented and this is where the seller made it clear that she was serious.

Speaking of the devil, (devil comment, not Anna, peace Anna!)

This is by far my favorite one on the page. When I read this I nearly spat out what I was drinking.

(Thank God I didn’t, RIP to my nose if that happened.)

Imagine being called a devil just because you wanted to order again. LOL Anna, you just made our day.

This just goes to show that Anna is by far the best seller out there. Who wouldn’t want to transact with a dishonest seller, right? At least Anna is honest.

Brutally honest, but still a great seller.

P.S.

Cyst Anna, if ever you read this, we mean you no harm, we were just so entertained by the way you put a twist on online selling. Hat’s off to you and more power to your shop.

Bride Pays Php30k for Designer Gown, Receives Ugly Piece that Nearly Ruins Her Wedding

Published

Her wedding day is one of the most exciting moments of a woman’s life. It is also the day when any woman becomes the star of the show!

It is expected, therefore, that every bride wants to look her best even if that means spending a good amount of money on her wedding gown. Of course, many would argue that the wedding gown is something you use only once; thus, you don’t have to spend a fortune on it but many brides would disagree, saying that the most important day of their lives deserve the most beautiful outfits.

Bride Mhayo B. Arguelles felt the same way. So, for her wedding scheduled last February 14, she made sure to order the gown of her dreams way ahead of date. She met with a gay designer who drew what appears to be a gorgeous gown for her wedding.

It was worth Php30,000 ($575) but that actually sounds like a good deal for that kind of gown. Just looking at this design, anyone would have fallen in love with this piece! But it turned out that the gay designer was much better in drawing than making the actual gown.

The first fitting was in November 2017. While the gown looked too simple compared to the drawing at the time, the bride didn’t think there was anything wrong because she simply thought the gay designer was going to add more to that gown. After all, it was still November, 3 months from the wedding.

Pleased with her gown, she even ordered the groomsmen’s clothes from the same designer; although she changed her mind on letting the designer work on the bridesmaids’ gowns as she wanted him to focus on her wedding dress.

The designer delivered the gown the day before the wedding – and it was so ugly that the bride thought her wedding was going to be ruined. For sure, no one would want to wear that gown!

Thankfully, her maid of honor was able to save the day, finding her a beautiful wedding gown at the last minute.

What’s rather hilarious, though, is that the gay designer has filed a complaint against her at the barangay hall for failure to pay the Php8k ($153) balance on the gown. The nerve!
