A Netizen expressed his disappointment after seeing a delivery rider who waited long for the package’s recipient under the scorching summer heat.
Since the pandemic started, people have been reliant on online services to get what they need. Things that people would usually go to the mall can be purchased from online shops to minimize the possibility of contracting or spreading the virus. However, this means that someone had to sacrifice to bring the items to their doorsteps.
Facebook user Clariss Glorio wrote about her concern after seeing what a delivery rider had to go through just to give her neighbor’s order.
She wrote that the man has been waiting under the sun, holding a small package, while constantly knocking on the gate of the house adjacent to their place.
She then emphasized the rider’s sacrifices so that people won’t have to go out during this pandemic.
“Mga rider na nag ri-risk ng buhay para wag na tayong lumabas. Pero nakakalungkot lang na may mga taong walang pagmamalasakit,” Glorio wrote.
The Netizen also gave a piece of advice, saying that if the order was still to be paid for, it’s better for the receiver to just hand over the exact amount.
She added that as most applications inform the customers of the delivery date, she hopes that people would anticipate for it to be delivered any time of the day.
“Hindi ka na nagpabalik-balik, nakasave ka pa ng oras ni kuya. Hindi lang tayo ang pupuntahan ni kuyang rider, marami pa. Ano ba namn yung ihanda mo na ung pambayad ahead of time para i-abot na lng sa kanya, imagine pipiktyuran ka pa niya bago siya umalis.”
Glorio further wrote that people are lucky that they don’t have to leave their homes to get what they need, but the riders also have families who wait and pray for them daily.
“Kaya sana naman bukod sa maging mabait, magalang, matutong magpasalamat para maginhawa ang isip nila sa daan ng malayo sila sa kapahamakan ay magkaroon din tayo ng pagmmalasakit para sa kanila.”
Nakita ko lng itong eksena na ito pag silip ko sa gilid ng gate namin. Naghhintay si…
