Driver refused to take woman’s fare, he later revealed their heartbreaking PAST

“Almost, almost is never enough” a line from a song of a famous singer perfectly describes the “almost” love story of this Jeepney driver and woman passenger from Iloilo City. While it is a given truth that not all love stories end happily, it is also true that people may change but feelings will stay.

Just like this viral Jeepney Love Story shared by a netizen.

The story started when the woman paid her fare and the driver refused to receive the payment. One of the passengers kindly said to the old woman that the driver knows her that is why he will let her ride the jeep for free.

The old woman curiously asked who the driver is but the driver just kept quiet. The woman even enumerated random names in hopes that she can spot the name of the driver. All the other passengers also just kept quiet.

Then, the woman declared that she will get off at the nearby mall. She said her thanks to the driver whoever he may be. Nobody dared to break their curiosity and all the other passengers just remained quiet.

It was at this moment that the driver said, “She didn’t even remember me. I waited more than 30 long years for her but she married someone else. I said to myself then that when she would give her sweet “yes” to me, I will take care of her that she would not be burdened by even a single peso to spend. Until now, I am still true to my words.”

The post melted the hearts of Netizens that it instantly went viral and is repeatedly shared by people who still continue to believe that “forever” does exist despite the negativities of the world.

”The woman at the jeepney paid at the driver but the driver returned her fare. Since she can’t see nor hear vividly, I relayed what the driver said. “Kilala ya ka kuno La, amo na libre pliti mo”, (“Lola kilala ka daw po ng driver kaya libre na po pamasahe niyo.”) I told her.

“Sino ka man?” (“Sino ka?”) she asked. But the driver kept quiet all the time. The woman then enumerated random names, hoping she would pin the tail on the donkey and find out who the driver is, while me and the other passengers kept quiet. The driver didn’t say anything until the woman told the driver to stop at Gaisano La Paz. Hopeless to find out who the driver was, she just said, “Salamat gid kung sino ka man.” (“Maraming salamat kung sino ka man.”)

Nobody dared to go break down their curiosity, and still we all kept quiet; until the driver said: (Non-verbatim) “Baw wala ya gid ko nadumduman ba. Gin hulat ko na siya sobra 30 ka tuig pero iba gin pakaslan ya. Siling ko sa kaugalingon ko sang una, kung sabton ya ko, sagudon ko gid siya kag bisan piso waay gid siya may problemahun sa gasto. Asta subong gin tuman ko promisa ko.”

(“Ay hindi niya talaga ako natandaan. Hinintay ko siya ng 30 taon pero iba ‘yong pinakasalan niya. Dati sinabi ko sa kanya kung sasagutin niya ako, aalagaan ko siya ng higit pa at wala siyang gagastusing pera niya ni piso. Hanggang ngayon tinutupad ko ‘yong pangakong ‘yon sa kanya.”)

Do you know why humans are beautiful? Someone inside the bus might actually love you secretly. Perhaps someone you passed by at the mall adores you in secret. Someone at the same line as yours in fast food chains probably has a crush on you. You’ll never know that you are loved.

It’s courageous when you love a person but you chose to let them go just because you realize that you two aren’t meant for each other. Most of us would end up finding someone else that are meant for us instead. It’s peculiar to see somebody who stays in love with that person that goes for years even if their love story only ends in the first few chapters of their book.This is one of the reasons why every old couples’ love story just make my heart swoon.
