Woman Caught on Video Grouping Three Families into One for Social Amelioration

A woman was caught on video as she grouped together three families to answer one form, telling them they would have to divide the money and relief goods they are set to receive under the social amelioration program. When someone questioned why that was so, she told them to choose if they wanted to receive the money or none at all!

Social Amelioration for the Poor

Under the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) “Bayanihan Fund: Tulong Laban sa COVID-19”, financial assistance will be given to families across the Philippines to help them survive the enhanced community quarantine imposed by the president or their local officials to combat COVID-19.

Priority is given to poor families; thus, the DSWD will still conduct an assessment after receiving all the forms. However, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte and also Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano clarified that the financial assistance is not given per house but per household. This means that if there are three families living in one house, they will receive three forms.

But the woman in the video uploaded by Facebook page cut#share was doing the opposite thing. Instead of giving every family one form to fill up and sign, she grouped three families into one form and told them that this is the proper way to answer the forms.

She went on to explain that the families will receive the first Php2,500, with Php1,000+ of it in relief goods, and the next Php4,000+ in cash. She urged the gathered families to choose who among their relatives and neighbors they choose as groupmates so they can later divide the relief goods and money among themselves.

Instead of each low-income household getting one form and later financial assistance, they have to divide the money among themselves!

Heartless Customer Cancels FoodPanda Order, Throws Food at Rider

A heartless customer cancels her FoodPanda order and throws food at the rider for being late in bringing her food! The story has gone viral, with many netizens wishing karma on the woman for her heartless actions.

Delayed Order Gets Canceled

These days, a lot of people enjoy the convenience of simply using their smartphones to order food from their favorite restaurants. So, despite the lockdown and various versions of the community quarantine wherein most people are not allowed to go out, they can still fulfill their cravings for such delicious foods.

What’s sad, however, is that there are customers who are so impatient with their orders that they get angry or even cancel when the rider takes a long time to deliver their food! But that is not the rider’s fault because the restaurants are usually too busy these days, too.

There are just too many people making orders for takeout or delivery food.

In Cebu City, a certain Mary Paras ordered food worth Php800+ from Chowking. When the FoodPanda rider arrived at her house, however, Mary reportedly refused to accept the order because the rider was late.

Considering that the rider had shelled out nearly Php1k for the food, he tried to insist that Mary pay for the order. But she got angry and threw the food at him! The poor rider had no choice but to leave, knowing that the customer won’t pay up.

But a concerned passerby snapped some photos and shared these on Facebook where the incident went viral. The heartless customer received netizens’ ire.

Mary would later issue an apology, explaining that the FoodPanda rider is the second to arrive at their home with her order. She claimed that the first time she placed her order, the app was ‘loading’. She had no idea that order pushed through. So, she received the same order twice; thus, she didn’t accept the second one.

This translates to:

“Good evening sa lahat na nagcomment sa Food Panda. Hindi ko po intension na manloko ng tao higit na sa panahon ito. Magcocomment nalang din po ako kasi nasasaktan na din ako sa mga sinasabi ng mga tao.

Kaya po eh explain ko po yung nangyari noong una nag-order ako pero nagloloading po at matagal yung net at data sa app. Hindi ko po namalayan na naorder na pala iyon at nadalawa na pala yung order ko. Noong dumating ang inorder po namin may tumawag ulit di ko nalang pinansin dahil dumating na yung order.

Kung may mali po ako nanghihingi po ako ng pasensya sa rider, kinontak ko na po siya at handa po akong magbayad sa kanyang pinang abono at nagpapasalamat din po ako sa nagpost po nito para mabigyang linaw ang lahat.”

But netizens are not buying her alibi. Many said that even if that is the case, she shouldn’t have been rude to the rider!

Safety in Food Delivery

These days of COVID-19, it is important to stay safe by staying at home. There are options for food delivery so you can still enjoy your favorite food from popular restaurants. Many restaurants impose many protocols to ensure safety in food delivery.

Food handlers and delivery riders are required to follow hygiene protocols such as wearing masks, washing their hands regularly, using alcohol, and limiting contact with customers as much as possible.

Old Man Bikes with Training Wheels Amid COVID Transport Restrictions

An old man bikes with training wheels amid the COVID-19 transport restrictions. His photos went viral, with many netizens expressing admiration that he found a way to solve his transport problem even if he did not know how to ride a bike!

Bike to Work

In the Philippines and even in many places around the world, restrictions are placed on transportation to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19.

Back riding is not allowed on motorcycles, with fines reaching to Php5,000! Public transportation also imposed social distancing; thus, most vehicles can only accommodate half or even less passengers than what they usually had.

This led to shortage in transportation and many commuters having to wait longer hours to find any vehicle to ride. So, many workers began using bicycles to work.

Biking to work can be tiresome and dangerous, even, yet they have no choice. It is the cheapest option that most people can afford in these trying times. But many people don’t even know how to ride a bike, including a lot of adults! So, many have also began learning how to ride a bike.

An old man recently went viral after someone spotted him riding a bike with training wheels! Most of us associate training wheels on bikes for kids but because he probably didn’t know how to ride a bike without them, the old man had to put them on so he can ride safely to work.

While a woman in Cebu had to struggle in riding her bike, and her husband had to act as her guide on a scooter, this old man found a way to ride the bike without a guide. Many hope that he would soon learn how to ride without the training wheels, of course, as such could lead to other accidents on the road.

What are Training Wheels?

Training wheels are two extra wheels placed beside the rear wheels of a bicycle to help someone learn how to bike. The wheels stay there until the rider learns how to ride the bike with their own sense of balance.
