“My name is Maris Mayol Tian. Last Thursday, I had just ordered my breakfast from a placed called Jollibee and my 92-YEAR-OLD neighbor saw me with the delivery guy.
When Lola saw him handing me my food at our gate, she called him over and asked him what he does… So, when he told her he delivers food that she would want to order… she proceeds by giving him her order.
I honestly thought he would just ignore her, laugh and be on his way, but he actually took out his own cellphone, dialed a number, and ordered for her!
There was a time when I hated Jollibee’s delivery service because they messed up a few times, but now I think I’m going to order more delivery from them.
Since the post was shared, the delivery guy and I became friends on Facebook! He sent me a message to thank me for the post. He was very grateful, which to be honest, I didn’t understand why he was thanking me, when in fact I didn’t do the good deed, I just took the photo! He was very humble. He said that he was praised at work, he said it was a nice feeling.”
