Nowadays, people are trying hard to make ends meet and engage in whatever income-generating job they may think. Because of crisis, many employees lost their job, companies closed, businesses stopped operating, and some are in skeletal setup. If you have a job right now despite the pandemic, you are greatly blessed.
Recently, the influencer and YouTuber Andrew Luis Lapid, commonly known by his followers Buknoy Glamurrr, made a fuzz after motivating his followers by belittling a tricycle driver. What he did earned so much hate and criticism both offline and online, and many netizens lambasted him for saying such.
In response to this, one netizen named Jan Marini Capacio posted a picture of her and his dad who works as a tricycle driver. She is a proud daughter of a tricycle driver, a decent job that supported her studies until she graduated in college. The photo was taken years ago but it’s a good way to prove that being a tricycle driver is not less as Buknoy and other people consider it to be.
Eto yung pangarap na tinupad ng tricycle driver kong tatay.
Kita mo yang ukab sa kamay ko? Nagkaron ako ng bone tum0r dati, kasabay ng pag aaral ko, pinapagamot rin ako ni tatay. Tatlo din pala kaming pinagtapos nya ng kolehiyo. Halos di na yan umuwi dati kakapasada.
Hindi mo alam ang nasa likod ng araw araw nilang pagbibilad sa init at alikabok ng lansangan. May mga pangarap silang tinutupad, buknoy. Mag aral ka pa, marami ka pa dapat matutunan.
PS. Ang pogi ni tatay dito, happy birthday in heaven tay! Saglit mo lang naranasan ang katas ng lahat ng pag hihirap mo, pero alam ko masaya ka na dyan na nakikita kaming maayos. Gabayan mo din tong si Buknoy Tay, nawa’y tumuwid na ang isip nya.”
