A shocking video showing a greedy Filipino taxi driver throwing out an old couple and their baggage for refusing to pay an extra fee has outraged Pinoy netizens.
According to the netizen who shared the video, the incident took place in Mandaluyong City. Taxi drivers are prohibited by the government from charging passengers with an extra fee.
“SHARE po natin itong video. Kawawa po sina lolo at lola. Pumila sila sa paradahan ng taxi. Pagkatapos pasakayin ng walang hiyang driver at hindi pumayag ang lolo sa kontrata, pilit na ibinababa ang mga bagahe,” the netizen posted.
(Let us share this video. I sympathize with the old couple. They queued on the taxi lane area. But a greedy taxi driver forcefully threw out their baggage because they refused to pay an extra fee.)
The viral video shows the old man arguing with the taxi driver as he takes out the couple’s bags.
Many Pinoy netizens were outraged with the video and urged commuters to choose Uber and Grab instead of waiting for taxis.
“Dapat i-educate ang tao sa pag rent ng UBER o GRAB. Mas convenient at kahit papano pwedeng mai-track ang travel record,” a netizen wrote.
(The public should be educated with Uber or Grab because it is more convenient and the travel record can be tracked.)
Several netizens also urged the couple to report the incident to the LTFRB but some social media users said that it is too much of a hassle to do so.
