A woman went viral for complaining about the ‘rude’ GrabFood driver who kept calling while she’s using her phone for a Mobile Legends (ML) game. She wanted to earn netizens’ sympathy after she lost her game because of the constant interruptions – but this backfired after netizens got angry at her instead!

A certain Trixie Dauz posted on her social media account, complaining against GrabFood driver, Ramer Monteflor Beraquit.

Due to the driver’s incessant calls, she lost her game. She got angrier when the driver would call back as he could not reach her. She messaged to tell him that she lost the game, getting only a bronze.

Trixie also told the driver that he should have researched who she was so that he will know she’s an ML player that he should not call. The driver apologized and told her he was only doing his job, but she angrily told him he not only caused her to lose the game but that he’s getting late and making her hungrier.

She also told the driver that he might be a friend of their opponents and might have been calling her on purpose so she would lose the match.

Netizen Joshua Adesna angrily shared screenshots of Trixie’s post, slamming the woman for ruining the GrabFood driver’s rating for such a trivial, non-valid reason.

At tumigil ang mundo ko, nung makita ko tong post na to. Jusko ate, Dahil sa moba nagkakaganyan ka? Nireport mo pa yung grab driver dahil nasira laro mo kuno. Wala ng sisirain sa laro mo dahil una wala kang laro. Naghahanap buhay yung tao irereport mo dahil sa walang kakwenta kwentang rason 😂,” Joshua wrote.

Sana yung grab umaksyon dito eh, nakakasira to ng pamumuhay, nakakasira ng araw. Sasabihin mo pa sa post mo na mali yung rider? Arte arte mo kala mo kinaganda mo yan 🙄.

Several netizens pointed out, however, that Trixie was actually playing a ‘Classic’ game of ML. This means that she’s a newbie. Also, her rank and level show that she’s no yet a pro player.

What is the Classic Mode for ML?

Classic is the earliest game mode in Mobile Legends. It is suitable for beginners to familiarize with the ins and outs of the game. On this mode, players can enjoy the full Mobile Legends experience without fear of losing their rank; though the win rate will still matter.

Fake Delivery Rider Tries to Scam Frequent Shopee Buyer

A scammer tried to dupe a frequent Shopee buyer for Php3,499 but he left emptyhanded after the guy noticed that the package clearly looks so fake!

Fake Delivery Rider Tries to Scam Shopee Buyer

These days, it is so easy to buy something you need and have it delivered at home. You can shop for almost anything you want even without leaving the comforts of your home – and you don’t even have to deposit the payment first, for most cases.

But the system of “cash on delivery” (COD) on many online platforms has given scammers a way to earn some quick, dishonest cash. These scammers prey on people who often make orders on these online shops and might not notice that they are paying for an order they did not make.

Netizen Jay Jazo shared the experience he had with what appears to be newbie scammers who arrived at his house carrying a package with his name written using a pentel pen. The address was incomplete, just “1200 Camba” and the amount was written out as “3499 php”.

Jay has some pending orders that he’s waiting for, yet he also knows that he doesn’t have an order worth Php3,499. Moreover, as a frequent Shopee buyer, he knows that the package doesn’t look like something you’d get from an online store. There’s no barcode or waybill on the package. Only the supposed buyer’s name was there; no information about the seller or the order number.

A bit scared, Jay quickly closed the door to inspect the item before telling the fake delivery rider that he doesn’t have an order. After the guy left, they followed him and saw that he was just walking! There’s a rider who fetched him several meters away from the house, but the two appeared to have realized that the fake rider was being followed.

Jay shared the experience as warning to others so they won’t fall for this kind of modus operandi.

Fake Package Delivery Scam

Don’t be fooled by the fake package delivery scam. Here’s what you can do:

  • Always track your packages from online shops.
  • Don’t give out personal information to callers, even if they sound like a real delivery rider.
  • Check the packaging for clues. Real orders have a proper waybill, with information like your complete name, address, and phone number.
  • Tell family members or other housemates to never pay for orders delivered when you’re not around, unless you tell them beforehand or if they could confirm it with your first.

Concerned Citizens Break Car’s Glass to Save Two Kids Left by Parents

Two kids were rescued from a hot car after concerned citizens broke the glass to save their lives. The two young children were left by their parents inside the car which was turned off and locked.

Kids Left in Hot Car by Parents

There are so many people who are not aware of the dangers of leaving children or pets inside a locked car with the air conditioning turned off and the windows closed. Not everyone is aware how hot it can quickly become inside that car, even if the weather isn’t too hot.

So, just imagine how hot it could become and how much oxygen will be left inside the vehicle on a very hot day!

In a video shared by Philippines CCTV & DASH CAM Spotted, several concerned citizens could be seen surrounding a Suzuki Ertiga that’s parked near business establishments at a still undisclosed location. It turned out that some passersby noticed the small kids inside the car and were concerned over their condition inside the locked vehicle.

The concerned citizens could be heard speaking in Visayan, telling each other that the best course of action is to break the car’s glass because doing it without damage to the vehicle was taking them a very long time. The kids inside could be seen looking weak and sweaty.

Acting as fast as they could to save the children, they broke the glass window at the driver’s seat. With the window broken, they rushed to remove the car seat of the baby and moved it inside an air-conditioned establishment near where the car was parked.

Another person picked up the elder sister, still a toddler, and also brought her to the establishment where they were both given water.

The video did not show what happened next or how the parents reacted once they learned what these concerned citizens happened. But everyone is furious at the irresponsible parents and thankful that the kids were safe.

What Happens to Kids in a Hot Car?

Kids’ bodies actually heat up more quickly, about 5x, than adult’s bodies. When left in a hot car, kids’ major organs could begin to shutdown at 40 C. You could easily lose the child as temperatures rise to 41.5 C!

Top Advantages of Using Solar Power at Home

Just like other sources of energy, solar power has its own sets of advantages and disadvantages. But even if the costs are usually high in putting it up, there is a great return on investment and you could actually save a lot of money in the long run.

Here are some of the top advantages of using solar power at home.

Lower or Eliminate Your Electricity Bills

Depending on what system you are planning to set up on your roof and the actual usage, you could either lower or eliminate your electricity bills. It is possible that you won’t generate 100% of the electricity you need but you’ll certainly see a huge slash from your monthly bills.

Power Even on Brownouts

Not all solar power systems work this way because there are those that are still connected/tied to the power company and doesn’t store the electricity produced during the day. But if you truly want to save money and have power even on brownouts, get the one with batteries. It costs higher but will be more useful in the long run.

Harness the Power of the Sun, Save the Environment

According to SolarGain, installing a 1kW solar power system helps reduce your carbon footprint and prevents the release of 1.5 tonnes of carbon a year. This sustainable system lets you harness the power of the sun and help save the environment.

Great Investment

Most suppliers offer a warranty for 20 to 25 years on your solar power system. This makes it a great investment for your home. Moreover, having solar power adds value to your home.

In some places, the government offers a subsidy or tax breaks or even cashback options for those who set up solar power at home. Take advantage of such offers if available in your area.

Incentives may actually go away and it may not actually pay to wait for too long,” says Vikram Aggarwal, CEO of EnergySage.
