In these trying times, everyone is clamoring for an inspiring story filled with hope. There’s been too much hatred surrounding the country and we can all agree that the trend needs to end. Luckily, a commuting netizen witnessed an amazing sight that showcased an MMDA officer‘s generosity.
We’re often used to hearing stories about mean local authorities who’d rather accept money than give it away. Generosity among traffic enforcers, who some believe to be corrupt, is a rare sight. However, this netizen was fortunate enough to be in the right place and time.
