Isang Senior Citizens sa Dumaguete City maraming beses na esnab ng mga tricycle driver . Walang mag pasakay sa matanda hanggang ang nag video nito ang tumulong na sa pag para ng masasakyan ni lola..
Humingi pa ang driver ng subra sa minimum na pamasahi .Walang nagawa ang matanda kundi magbayad na lng . Ganito na raw ang Dumagute ngayon , namimili ng pasahero ang mga tricycle driver..
Note : Nang makita na ng mga driver na nag video kami dyan pa sila nag pasakay sa matanda . Matagal na kaming naghintay halos lahat walang mag pasakay...
