What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the place Davao City? Well aside from being well-known as the hometown of President Rodrigo Duterte, it is the most urbanized city in Mindanao. In fact, many have attested that the city is indeed safe.
On a Facebook post by Ayer Kristianne last year, he shared the kind of security that the Davaoeños are experiencing in the city.
Dated March 26, 2017, the netizen shared a snap of an unattended expensive mobile phone laying on top of a table inside a convenience store. According to him, the photo was taken inside a 7-11 store near the University of the Immaculate Conception in Davao City. He recounted that a guy left his cellphone on a table in the store because he happened to forget something on the counter and returned after three minutes.
The netizen said that Davaoeños are used to seeing unattended valuable materials such as bags and gadgets being left behind by their owners on the tables of various food establishments. It is for their reason of securing a seat while they are still lining up on the counter.

According to him, it would probably be unusual for non-Davaoeños to witness such a situation given that there have been numerous cases of theft in other places. That is why he wants to urge the Davaoeños to learn to appreciate the simple things like this as this because these could already be a big deal for others.
