Special Shoutout To My Filipino Taxi Drivers!
Sorry to interrupt my blogging hiatus, but I need to give a special shout out to all of my Filipino Taxi Drivers.
I’ve always said that Filipinos are pretty friendly people, but to experience some love first hand is quite an experience.
It was a typical normal day and I was getting off the cab 30 minutes late for work. My regular pairs of slacks were a bit wrinkled, so I decided to go with an older set of nut huggers. Those of you who know about nut huggers, know that you have to sag a little to get that extra room for comfort.
note: There’s a downside to this though, sagging with butt tight jeans practically leaves your pockets wide open.
Well, wide open pockets and being in a hurry is just a recipe for either losing your wallet or your cell phone. In this situation, it was my wallet.
I ended up leaving my priceless wallet with my drivers license, atm, credit card, card key for my office and a bunch of business cards from several contacts that I was supposed to hit up months ago.
There wasn’t a lot of money, but having to replace these items would be a huge headache that I definitely do not want to deal with.
Well, after a day of canceling all of my credit cards and feeling sorry for myself for being so irresponsible, I wake up to around 3 texts in the morning from a few of my business card contacts. Apparently, the taxi driver that drove me to the office texted all of my business cards in my wallet and told them that he found my wallet.
To make a long story short, the taxi driver drove all the way to my office, parked and delivered it to me personally. I hooked him up with a fatty tip… but I felt he did a pretty honest deed.
