It’s quite expected for people to remain modest even when faced with a crisis. Not being able to control one’s overwhelming feelings, anger or frustration for example, may result to thinking and making decisions irrationally. Worse, this could work against you or be a reason for your embarrassment. Though we’re not sure who this woman is or what she felt after her recorded argument with the GrabShare driver went viral online, it clearly showed that she acted illogically and arrogantly.
On Tuesday, March 13, a female netizen ranted about her recent fellow passenger in GrabShare (carpool service). Apparently, the woman had no cash to pay for her fare. But instead of following the driver’s innocent suggestion to just borrow money first from the security guard, she declined and started telling him off.
The netizen, who was with the said woman in the ride-sharing service, posted:
“Hindi ko kilala ‘yung guard diyan! Ganito. A-ask ko sa loob ng office, ha? Sasabihin ko may nagwawalang Grab driver. Kung hindi ko bigyan ng pera, magwawala. [Ang] sinabi ko, bumalik ka kasi gagawing pera. Ngayon, maghintay kayong dalawa kung gusto niyo. Pero hindi ako hihiram ng pera sa guwardiya dahil ni 200 wala yang pang-araw-araw.”
The rude woman even threatened the driver by saying that she, as a transport service passenger, has the privilege to give him low remarks. When the other customer butted in, the woman could not say anything. The other person said:
“[Inconvenient] din po kasi sa driver, tsaka po sa pasahero. Dapat po, hindi po kayo nag-Grab kung wala po kayong pambayad.”
However, the woman didn’t stop scolding the Grab driver. When the poor man explained that her suggestion would be a hassle for him and the other commuter, she reproached him by saying:
“Lahat tayo, nata-traffic, ‘di ba? Kung gusto niyo masarap ‘yung buhay, ‘wag ka na lang magtrabaho. ‘Di ba? Do’n ka na lang sa kama mo, araw-araw. Lahat tayo eh, kumakayod. Lahat tayo eh, hindi lang ikaw.”
In spite of the woman’s insolence, the driver still insisted her to just ask for the security guard to lend her money. The rude passenger, however, then arrogantly said that she would just double her payment to end their disagreement. What was worse was she seemed to have put the blame on the poor Grab driver.
“Ang punto ko lang is bakit kailangang mag-create ng malaking drama? Konting adjustment lang naman ito. Hindi naman premium ‘yung car mo!”

Wow Ate ikaw na nga walang pambayad ikaw pa galit. Nakashare ko sa Grab papasok, usually dedma lang naman ako sa ganito! Pero nakakairita siya at nakakaawa ung mga taong nagtatrabaho ng matino dahil sa mga gaya nitong tao.Hindi ko talaga ni video ung face ni Ate Girl kse baka naman magalit siya lalo.UPDATE: Sa mga ngtatanong po ngbayad naman po nghintay kami ng sandali lang naman, bastos lang po talaga. Naireport naman po sa Grab before ko po ipinost. Naniniwala naman po ako that Grab will do their best accordingly. Hindi po pwede ibigay ung name ni Rider according to Grab dahil po sa Data Privacy nung nireport ko.Thank you po sa mga malawak ang pagintindi kung bakit walang mukha. Thank you din po sa mga makikitid pa po sa eskinita ung isip at kung makaflood ng message inbox ko e parang G na G ng very very hard talaga dahil walang fez.
