Adidas shoes might be expensive, but one guy readily gave away one pair to a Lalamove rider with damaged shoes – and the kind deed has gone viral, earning praise from netizens who felt inspired by his kindness.
The guy’s kind act was shared by his girlfriend who was surprised but also so surprised by his decision to do this.
Rachel Julian lives in Pansol, Quezon City. She was able to buy cat food for the cats she and her boyfriend own at their separate households but because Gabriel Wynn Bugtong lives in Caloocan, she had no idea how she can bring him the cat food amid the enhanced community quarantine imposed in Metro Manila.
Finding a rider to bring the cat food from her house to Caloocan proved to be a difficult task, despite the offer for an extra Php50 tip to anyone who accepts the booking. Rachel spent hours trying to book from various apps, to no avail.
When someone finally accepted the booking, Rachel was ecstatic; especially because her boyfriend’s cat is running low on supplies.
It was not until some hours later that a rider finally accepted the booking. But when the rider, Reynaldo Manlapaz, arrived at her home, Rachel felt heartbroken to see his damaged shoes. The pair had seen better days.
“Eto yung shoes ni kuya, kapag gumagalaw siya parang may pakpak yung sapatos sa gilid at nakanganga na din,” Rachel shared.
Back at home, she messaged her boyfriend to tell him about the rider’s shoes – and Gabriel immediately offered to give the guy a pair!
“Walang pagdadalawang isip, inoffer agad ni Gab bigyan ng shoes si kuya. Yea, bibigay daw niya yung adidas shoes niya kay kuya Reynaldo. ? Yung shoes na last year lang namin binili at wala pang 1 year sakaniya, walang kasira-sira, hoping rin na sana kasya kay kuya yung shoes,” Rachel narrated.
Needless to say, Reynaldo was surprised when the customer had box ready for him when he finally arrived at the destination. It was also quite lucky that the shoes fit him! Yay!
“At ayun nga, wala pang 1 hour nadeliver na agad ni kuya yung items and gulat na gulat siya na may package rin si Gab para sakaniya. ?
Sinukat niya yung shoes at kasya sakaniya. ? sabi pa ni kuya “Naku sir, totoo po ba to? Totoo po to?”
Nag leave kami ng feedback sayo kuya Reynaldo pero gusto uli namin magpasalamat ni Gab na kahit ganito sitwasyon at kahit alam ko mahirap magmotor ng di maayos ang suot sa paa eh patuloy ka parin naghahanapbuhay at nakakatulong sa aming mga customers niyo. Salute to kuya Reynaldo. ?? God bless you and your family!”
God bless po!
