- This, however, got him into trouble and he got an earful from the checkpoint officer, but who apparently had a heart for hardworking lads
- After explaining amid tears, the officer took something out of his wallet, which the driver initially thought was a ticket, but to the latter's surprise was a $100 bill
Joshua Basa, a food delivery driver, shared how a furious police officer at the checkpoint became an "angel." The officer scolded him relentlessly for a violation, but when he explained that he was a working student, trying to make ends meet, the former gave him a $100 bill or P5,000 to help him make it through.
In the May 16 Facebook post of Joshua, he said that he passed by a checkpoint in España and lined up with the other motorcycle riders.
When he saw another driver transfer to another queue, he followed suit. However, the checkpoint officer scolded him for cutting the line.
Joshua tried to explain, but the officer could not be dissuaded. The former said that he was just a student trying to fend for himself.
The officer asked him to surrender his license and even asked for his school ID to prove his claims.
Joshua, who was already in tears, due to having a really bad day was at the point of breaking when the officer pulled out his wallet.
He thought that the officer would give him a ticket, but to his surprise, the officer, Sir Sirjon Nacino pulled out a $100 bill and gave it to him.
Sir Sirjon told him to finish his studies and his words pierced his heart that it made him cry.
"Tanggapin mo na. Tulong ko sayo yan, gusto ko magtapos ka ha! Ipangako mo sakin!" said the Sir Sirjon to Joshua.
“Pag sabi nya non lalo kong umiyak, hindi ko napansin yung halaga ng pera pero sa mga sinabi nya talaga ko nadala," continued Joshua.
