    Rider shares sentiments after getting belittled for job

    Brian Tabuzo shared his sentiments after getting belittled for his job as Grab rider. It made him feel sad that people look down on Grab riders, especially because someone told him that it would be better if he found another, much better job.

    After graduating from Malabon National High School, Brian studied Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - Business Management at the City of Malabon University. Though he did not finish his studies yet, the 20-year-old Brian found a job as Grab rider to support himself.

    Previously, he also worked as service crew at a fastfood outlet.

    He enjoys his job as Grab rider but was dismayed after a recent talk with a high school mate who appears to belittle his job.

    The question surprised Brian who could only laugh in response. But it got him thinking just how sad it is that people belittle the noble job he and many other riders have. While the job isn’t paying him big money, he is happy that he’s among the frontliners serving the people amid the COVID-19 crisis. Moreover, this is a noble job that he can be proud of, because he is earning honest money.

    “Oh pre! Naggagrab kana lang pala? Diba college level ka naman? Bat jan ka bumagsak? Bata kapa diba? Dami pang trabaho mas better jan,” - high school mate said.

    Honestly ‘HAHAHAHAHHA wala lang’ yan na lang ang naisagot ko, ganyan pala kababa ang tingin nyo saming mga food/parcel delivery riders. Oo bente anyos pa lang ako, daming mas magandang trabaho jan, pero pinili ko to dahil masaya ko dito ang mahalaga di kami nanlalamang ng ibang tao. Di rin naman ganun kadali ang ginagawa namin. Anjan ang risk ng aksidente, mga fakebookings, scams. Pero masaya kami at mahal namin to hahahaha.

    Di naman namin hinihingi ang pag galang at appreciation nyo, ang importante sa malinis na paraan namin kinukuha ang perang pinanggagastos. Kaya salamat sa mga taong kayang umunawa at tumangkilik sa ginagawa namin, wag na lang pansinin yung mga ganung klaseng tao. Sa lahat ng riders jan. �Ride safe sa ating lahat ❤

    Ps: Di ko alam kung nagpapakasarcastic ka lang, di naman tayo close limot ko na nga din pangalan mo eh haha pero bigla kang kumana ng ganun HAHHAHA 😂

    Gawin na lang nating motibasyon ang kritisismo ng ibang tao satin, aangat din tayo ❤
