Jeepney Driver’s Wife Goes Viral, Earns Netizens’ Anger for Discrimination against Old Beggar

When a dirty, smelly old beggar rode a jeep bound for Monumento, the other passengers just scooted over to let him ride but the driver’s wife got angry that he rode the vehicle during rush hour and told him he was a disturbance.

The old beggar shyly looked down and accepted the hurtful words the driver’s wife was saying but the other passengers got angry at the discrimination.

That kind of feeling na makita mo ‘tong taong ‘to na pinapahiya ng asawa ng driver na katabi niya kagabi! Last night! Yung pakiramdam kong pagod ako sa trabaho isama mo pa ang biyahe na napakalayo! Tapos may makakasakay ka na pulubi. From the start! Pag sakay ko pa lang halos ipahiya ng ipahiya ng babaeng katabi niya si tatay! na kesho “Istorbo kayo! Dapàt hindi kayo sumasakay ng ganitong Rush hour” Napapailing nlng ako o kaming mga pasahero sa babae, halos kumirot yung puso ko!!” Renzel Lopez Sobrepeña wrote on Facebook.

Sobrepeña paid for the old man’s fare which actually just amounted to Php13 ($0.25). Much to their surprise, though, the driver told the old man to get off the vehicle a few blocks later even if his fare had been paid by the other passenger.

This angered Rodine Grace Salonga Gelle, another passenger who had seen Sobrepeña pay for the old man’s fare. She insisted that the old man should be allowed to stay because his fare had been paid. Another passenger chimed in, telling the couple that they could be charged with discrimination, especially because the beggar is a senior citizen.
