For the Kind Nameless Driver

This is a re-post. It originally appeared on another blog on Feb. 19, 2012. It is re-posted for sentimental reasons.
This post is for the kind tricycle driver who gave back my friend’s envelope containing very important documents.
My friend is a BS HRM student in Cabanatuan City. Early last week, in his haste to find a ride home, he left an envelope in the tricycle he rode on his way to the jeepney stop. It was already dark. He was so anxious to go home that he only noticed the missing envelope when he was already home. I asked him if there was any way he could find the tricycle, but he said there wasn’t any. First, it was already dark, second, he didn’t pay attention to details like the inside of the tricycle, the driver, anything. Third, he didn’t get on at the terminal, but just hailed it from the passing ones.
His only hope to get his stuff back was if, by any means, the tricycle driver would be kind enough to give the envelope back to him. The envelope has his name, his mobile number and the name and address of his school.
For me, that was a long shot…
LUCKILY.. I was wrong.
When my friend went to school. His envelope was returned by the kind tricycle driver who left it to the security guard of the school. According to my friend, the driver even sent him a text message to let him know that his envelope was already in school. My friend called the driver to thank him and found out that the driver, upon seeing the envelope, went back to the jeepney terminal hoping my friend was still there. Early the next morning, the driver just left it to the guard on duty in school.
For you, Mister, thank you. Thank you for giving us hope that there are still kind and considerate people like you. May GOD bless you and your family always..
