What would you do if you found an iPhone with an amount of money placed on it’s back and no one knew that you found it? Perhaps, every one of us will have different answers regarding this matter. For some, they’ll probably say that they will return it to the owner. While others will choose to be practical (and a bit dishonest) and keep the phone and take the money. Well, take it from this tricycle driver in Vigan City who chose honesty over material possessions.
On Tuesday, a certain Cha Antonio took to Facebook to share her memorable experience with a tricycle driver whom she met while on vacation in Vigan recently. According to her, she accidentally left her phone inside the tricycle, and she only found out that she lost it when she already arrived at their house. In addition, later did she realized that she placed an amount of P1,500 at the back of her phone.
Worried, she then asked her friend to call her phone hoping that someone would answer. Much to her surprise, she learned that the tricycle driver in Vigan saw her phone. However, the latter asked his fellow driver to answer the call since he doesn’t know how to operate the gadget.
The next day, the netizen and her friend immediately returned to Vigan to retrieve her belongings. While waiting for the driver who saw her phone, other tricycle drivers in Vigan told her that apparently, another passenger saw her phone. However, the latter probably lost interest in the phone after seeing that there was a password protecting it. Instead of taking it, the passenger threw it the trash bin inside the tricycle.
