Viral stories are often the ones that touch the emotions of people. Many of these stories are about how people overcome the obstacles facing them and became victorious. Others are about humorous circumstances, though there are a few that talk about sad endings.
Several months ago, a story about the video of an online seller bursting into tears of joy when she found out she passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) while doing live selling has gone viral. The seller, Jerlyn Esteves of Masbate City, said she didn’t expect to pass the exams as she wasn’t able to review properly because she was too busy with her live selling. She admitted she took the same exam in 2019 but was not able to pass it even if she reviewed for the test properly. Esteves also said she went through a lot before finally passing the examination for teachers.
In some cases, viral stories aren’t about talent but brought about by circumstances. One of such cases is the photo taken by netizen @ellagarcia of a posted sign inside a jeepney plying the Sta. Barbara-Dagupan, Pangasinan route. The posted sign contained the earnest appeal of the driver to passengers for a few pesos additional fare. The sign indicated that the driver doesn’t compel passengers to pay a higher amount of fare but they can voluntarily do so if they could. The driver of the jeepney, according to the sign, said that his appeal came about due to the high price of diesel fuel.
