While cleaning a comfort room inside Terminal 1 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in the Philippines, 31-year-old janitor Bobby Duarte found a bag which contained a lot of money and some IDs.
Instead of taking some of the cash or even keeping the bag for himself, the honest worker swiftly looked for the owner, 71-year old balikbayan Reynaldo Domingo Bautista, through the airport’s public address (PA) system but no one went to the desk to claim the bag.
It turned out that Bautista had forgotten about the bag and had already gone home!
Duarte turned the bag over to the Lost and Found Section of the airport. Airport police head of the Lost and Found Section of the Intelligence & Investigation Division, Corporal Reynon Flores, said they were able to contact Bautista using the contact number in one of the IDs inside the bag.
Bautista, who arrived in the country on Thursday morning, February 4, 2016, from San Francisco on board Philippine Airlines flight PR105, sheepishly admitted that he had accidentally left the bag while using the comfort room inside the airport. He had no idea the bag was lost until he received the call from the airport police!
For his exemplary honesty, Duarte’s superior, NAIA Terminal 1 manager Dante Basanta is recommending him to the MIAA (Manila International Airport Authority) Praise Board.
It is unknown whether Duarte will receive monetary reward for his actions but the airport janitor was not looking for any monetary compensation when he returned the bag, saying that the money (which is well over his annual salary!) was not rightfully his and that God provides him with everything that he needs.
While many people such as Duarte would not hesitate to return things they found, even if that thing does not have obvious marks of ownership, there are those who believe that such things are the finders’ to keep.
The English adage “finders keepers” simply means that anyone who finds an item has all the right to claim it as his/hers. In fact, this has awesome rewards to some extent; such as US laws (the Homestead Act) allowing anyone to claim land that is not originally owned by someone else.

Woman Who Stole A Family Parking Space Bragged That She Has 3 Cars And “Money To Burn”
We have seen a lot of people argue about parking spaces but none like this! In Singapore, a woman who was clearly alone stole a parking space form a family who was supposed to park in a family lot.
Family lots are for drivers who carry families with them. If you have an elderly or a kid in the car, then the space is reserved for you and you have all the right to park there.
Unfortunately for this family of 3 kids (1 baby) who wanted to go to the mall to enjoy a nice movie, the parking space that was meant for them was stolen by this Singaporean woman.
The woman was caught on video. When the man confronted him, she became very arrogant and boasted of her 3 cars and even told him that she has “money to burn” and that is known for being rich. In the video, she doesn’t seem very well.
Such attitude infuriated the male driver not just because of the parking space, but because privileges like this can be easily taken advantage by people who are not deserving– and she is not even apologetic.
The Facebook post garnered 2,700 likes, 8,500 shares, and 169 comments as of writing and the netizens have a lot to say!
Many criticized the woman for having “money to burn” but no money to have her teeth fixed! It is a hilarious comment but it makes sense.
While others, pointed out her being a lonely individual. Stang Cheng, a netizen, commented that she knows the woman because she is her neighbor. She did confirm that the woman has 3 cars but parks in the loading/unloading area. The woman has given her the same attitude as well but, she feels pity for her because she has no family she can take with her in her cars.
What the woman did was really rude that she even made it to their local newspaper’s headline! However, the third comment above makes sense as to why she only has her money and cars as her refuge.
Lucky for the man because he has a family to take to the movies to.

Driver and Honest Passenger Praised for Returning Php400k Cash to OFW Owner
Everyone knows how stressful it can be to lose money, especially if the amount is big; thus, those who return valuables or money they find often earn praise from others. After all, these people might have chosen to keep the items for themselves but still do the right thing by returning what isn’t theirs.
That’s what happened to an honest passenger and driver who returned a bundle of money in US dollars, worth Php400k, to the rightful owner who turned out to be an overseas Filipino worker.
Erwil Payangdo Agyapas, the honest passenger, spotted the bundle of cash inside the jeepney driven by Jimmer Antos Denson in Tublay, Benguet. Instead of pocketing the cash for his own use, something he could have easily done because jeeps have no CCTV and there were no other witnesses to say he stolen the money, Agyapas told Denson about the bundle of money.
The two decided to take the cash to Tublay Municipal Police Station. The policemen were able to trace the rightful owner, an overseas Filipino worker from Kapangan, also in Benguet.
For their honest actions, Tublay Mayor Armand Lauro commended Agyapas and Denson, especially after learning that this was not the first time Agyapas returned money he found. Agyapas said he knows the pain of losing money and valuables; thus, he always returns anything he finds, knowing the owner will be hurt if the item is not returned.
The mayor told the two, “With what you did, it made me believe that there are indeed people like you who return money without second thoughts. This is a good reflection for our constituents this Lenten season that there are still good and honest people in this world, worthy to be emulated.”
Mayor Lauro rewarded the two with some money and had them included in the list of people who will receive special commendations in November, in time for the town’s annual foundation day celebration.
Domestic Helper in Saudi Arabia Escapes From Her Abusive and Manipulative Employer
Being an OFW means enduring the feeling of loneliness and homesickness as you are away from your family. However, there are a lot of Filipino workers who are determined to endure the hardship of their professions just to earn money. A lot of them are willing to sacrifice their happiness and comfort if it means giving their families back in the Philippines a better life.
Overseas Filipino Workers are having a difficult and tough life while working abroad just to give their families a bigger and brighter future. They are forced to seek opportunities abroad to sustain the growing needs of their loved ones.
There are many OFWs who are lucky to find their fortune abroad. But there are still some who are struggling with their cruel and abusive employers, especially in the Middle East.
Domestic Helper Escapes Employer
A video is now catching the attention of many netizens who instantly felt pity for the Filipino domestic helper. The domestic helper were intreviewed by other Filipinos who rescued her after she escaped from her male employer’s house in the video uploaded by a certain bOjOy sa Macau on Youtube.
According to the Overseas Filipino Worker, whose name was not revealed, she choose to escape from her employer’s house because she cannot withstand the bad character of her male employer. She revealed that the said employer questioned her several times after seeing photos of men on her smartphone.
The domestic helper kept wondering why the male employer was strangely reacting to things she’s doing since as per her, she is only a maid and they are not in a romantic relationship. Eventually, her employer confiscated her phone and later on destroyed it for reasons she does not know. So when she finally had a chance to escape, she immediately took the opportunity.
Threatened to Kill Her
The unnamed OFW also added that he even threatened to kill her. She eventually learned that her employer is still single after his wife left him and she thought that the reason why he cannot find a partner and start a family is because of his rude and manipulative attitude.
The Filipino worker had been working in Saudi Arabia for a year and 5 months before she escaped. However, before she served her current employer, she was with his mother. This is not surprising as there are a lot of employers in Saudi Arabia who are selling or passing their domestic helpers to another family if they are no longer happy with their services.
