Nowadays, it’s very hard to stay honest without expecting anything in return. This vegetable supplier in Benguet is one of the few good people who still believe that one shouldn’t do a good deed and expect something in return. Without second thoughts, this woman returned a bag she saw in a fast-food restaurant.
As per Cordillera Express, Alice Baguitan, 37 yrs. old narrated how she returned the lost bag of the two ladies eating in a fast-food restaurant in Laoag City who were sitting at the table next to hers. She noticed that when the two stood up to leave, they left a bag.
She was surprised that upon opening the bag, it was full of money. She didn’t hesitate to follow the bag’s owner whom she had overheard to be going to the bus station. She immediately went out of the restaurant and rode a tricycle to go to the bus station.
The bag contains Php2.7M which was for the hospitalization of the owner’s relative who was confined in a hospital in Manila. The owner was very thankful to Baguitan for her honesty and tried to reward her honesty. Alice politely declined in accepting the reward saying that she didn’t return the bag for a reward. She did so because of her belief as a Christian that doing something good pleases the Lord and will give her more blessings.
Meanwhile, the bag’s owner sent a text message to Police Senior Master Sergeant Joan Alipio of the Ilocos Norte Police Provincial Office who happens to be a cousin of the honest vegetable supplier. She said that Igorots are trustworthy. What the owner texted was true and it would do the world good if there would be more Alice Baguitan who’s honest enough to return such a big amount of money and doesn’t even expect a reward for her good deed.
