The story of Cristina Tan who drove a taxi after the driver of her rented taxi said he was sleepy and could no longer continue driving is now making rounds on social media. “[Nearly] 70yrs old na si tatay sabi nya panahon pa ni marcos taxi driver na sya at puro babae anak kaya naghahanap buhay pa rin till now,” Tan said in a social media post dated September 15.
“While on the road sabi ni tatay (taxi driver) lipat nalang daw ako dahil hindi nya kaya mag drive sa sobrang antok,” Tan said.
She said that it would be dangerous for her to alight in a place she is not familiar.
“Sabi ko delikado naman kung baba ako somewhere hindi ko alam kung makakasakay agad ako so I insist ako na ang mag drive dahil malayo pa ang bahay ko from our location,” she said.
Tan said the taxi driver – who was later known as Rolando Sarusad, 67 years old – was hesitant to accept her offer. “At first ayaw niya nahihiya at akala nya hindi ako marunong mag drive ng manual.”
“Pero pinilit ko nalang para maka idlip sya habang traffic,” Tan added.
Tan said when she took over the driver’s seat, Sarusad immediately fell into sleep.
“Habang nasa byahe ang dami pumapara sa taxi tapos nagugulat at natatawa dahil babae ang driver,” she added. “Ginising ko nalang si tatay nung nakarating na kami sa bahay ko.”
