Facebook user Renier Bona gave an interesting twist to the whole Uber-Grab-LTRFB fiasco with his hilarious anecdote.

Among all the social-media posts showing support for ride-hailing services Uber and Grab, Facebook user Renier Bona had one of the most unique anecdotes.

His Facebook status yesterday, July 18, read:

“Marami na ang nasabi tungkol sa desisyon ng LTFRB (Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board) na ipatanggal ang mga drivers ng GrabTaxi at Uber na walang permit.

“Idadagdag ko lang ang aking kuwento tungkol sa kasalukuyang nakababahalang lagay ng ating public transport system.”

A student of University of the Philippines in Diliman, Renier knew the pros and cons of every riding option around Katipunan Avenue area.

He knew the cheapest option was the Katipunan-UP jeep, since Uber and Grab rates would hit up to PHP300 during rush hours.

At 1 p.m., Renier decided to take the jeep and, lo and behold, an unexpected twist of fate happened.

Or, in this case, 'fate' appeared and sat on his lap.

Renier wrote, “Pagdating namin sa bandang Miriam College (formerly Maryknoll), bahagyang tumigil ang jeepney driver upang magsakay ng ilang pasahero. Dagliang pumasok ang mga Atenistang magkakaibigan.

“Pagkaupo ng ilan, isa sa kanila ang wala nang maupuan. Wala siyang pasabing nagpakandong sa 'kin.”


Everyone in the jeep—including the Atenean's friends—took a double take at the scene unfolding.

“Nagulat ako. Nagulat ang kanyang mga kaibigan. Nagulat ang jeep. Nagulat ang Katipunan Avenue. Nagulat ang Diyos.”

The unsuspecting Atenean remained seated on the lap of Renier, who was literally stuck in an awkward position.

He continued, “Makailang minuto na, nakadukot na siya ng otso pesos mula sa kanyang bulsa, nakapagbayad na siya ng pamasahe, nakailang hagikhik na ang mga pasahero nung napagtanto niyang sa hindi niya kakilala siya nagpakandong.”

When the Atenean realized what just happened, Renier simply heard, “Oh no! I’m sorry. It was a mistake,” as a quick apology.

Hirit ni Renier sa kanyang post, “It was a mistake?”

The words crushed him a little.

“Na-fragile ako.”

Or probably crushed him a lot.

“Nakapag-invest na ako ng emotions.”

“Naplano ko na ang kasal namin. Napagdesisyunan ko na kung ilan ang mga magiging anak namin, para lang mapag-sabihan ng, ‘It was a mistake?’”

“Paano naman ako?

"Paano ang mga plano ko para sa amin?"

And then, he had this hugot: "Mga pafall talaga ang mga Atenista kahit kailan."

“Kaya sa lahat ng ito, safe ba talaga kaming mga marurupok sa ating public transport system? Kayo na po ang humusga. Sa kasong ito, I #SupportGrabUber.”

Read Renier’s post in full. Hilarious!
