How a netizen outsmarted a taxi driver who charged them P3,600 for NAIA-Cubao trip

  • A taxi driver and a barker tried to charge a netizen P3,600 for a trip from NAIA to Cubao
  • Along the way, the netizen thought of a plan to outsmart them
  • Apparently, the plan was successful, according to the sharer

MANILA, Philippines – A quick-thinking netizen shared on Facebook how she successfully outsmarted a scheming taxi driver who tried to fool them into paying P3,600 on a trip from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 to Cubao in Quezon City.

In a Facebook post, Janine Jennilyn said she and her brother boarded a cab at NAIA after a man (caller) offered them they need to pay only the regular fare.

However, once their luggage were placed inside the compartment, they were surprised that the barker also quickly hopped in to the taxi beside the driver and sped off without saying any word.

Their suspicions were confirmed when halfway through the agreed journey, the driver stopped the vehicle and negotiated for a P3,600 fare, which, understandably, shocked them both.

Fearing that it would be useless to argue with the two men who may hurt or assault them if they refused, she decided to accede; although the sharer said she had something else in mind.

  1. DEAR KICKER DAILY NEWS – These are tips to improve this article
    1) Fix your grammar. Halata kasi na hindi umabot ng high school and sumulat nito. Kung umabot man, siguro nakatulog ang writer nung tinuturo ang past and present tenses.
    2) Mag-Tagalog na lang kayo. Kung sablay sa English, huwag nang ipilit.
    3) Learn journalism. Alamin kung paano talaga na-outsmart nung pasahero ang taxi driver dahil yun ang headline niyo. Kasi pinakita lang naman sa video na abusado ang driver pero hindi kung paano na-“outsmart” ng passenger ang driver. So ano, nagbayad pa din ba yung passenger?
    4) Have some bit of shame. Mahiya naman kayo sa buong mundo na nagbabasa nitong article at ang sama sama ng English niyo.

    • And & Ang.. But I do share your sentiments though. Nakakainis lang na sa panahon ngayon madalas na-ooverlook ang grammar errors. Di lang naman dito but all over the web. Para bang bumababa tuloy ang tingin sa kalidad ng mga editors/writers/publishers ng era na ito. It’s just my honest opinion. I don’t mean to offend anyone. Wala akong ipinagmamalaking degree sa english or tagalog. I’m just sayin’.
