I Just Have To Help Him

A sample of a jeepney

Last Tuesday , I commuted going to work . At the jeepney , I overheard a young man told the driver to drop him at the name of the company he mentioned . But when it passed by that company the driver just kept driving so I told the young man it’s what he mentioned to be dropped. He told me that it’s not actually where he will be doing a transaction but he mentioned another company . Knowing where it is , I told him it will still be a bit far . So when it was nearing it , I called the driver to stop and told the man it’s where he should be going . He was all smiles when he thanked me and alighted . Will you do the same too , to a stranger who seem not to know the place if you happen to know it ?

Absolutely, surely I would do the same, because I know I would appreciate that the others should do this to me when I travel in a place that I do not know.

Precisely . What if we are that person too . What comes around goes around , so we always have to do good to others .

I hate myself for sometimes minding some people if i know that i can be of help . Some would not even thank me , after that . I guess , it's second nature for people like us to help in anyway we can .

They were opportunities like that but most of the time it's either other passengers or the driver knew the place.

Yes, others can help too , though wouldn't do it , so when that happens we have to pitch in to help.

I'm glad to see your concern here to help the young man. Everyone should be like that because we also don't want to get lost just because no one cared to lead us to the right place.

you did a good job and yes i will also do same because if we help people they will give bless us as he dont know place and driver forgot you did you job which show you are so humble and helping personality. because if you not help him at that time you feel guilty later as you know what mistake you done. but good that you help him and make him happy.

I surely would feel l guilty if i don't help him , since i very well know where that place is . Sometimes , we have to really extend help to those who needs help even if it would mean you will spend a bit more time for it .

@SIMPLYD yes dear i agree with you because sometime we also need help and when people do like it then we know how we feel so if we have time and we know things then definitely help them.

I also do that. Most of the time, the driver forgets what his passenger told him so its better to just help and tell the passenger than wait for the driver to remember.....

Precisely . With so many passengers the driver is bound to forget him .
