WATCH: Taxi Driver Without Change vs Ateneo Student Video Goes Viral

MANILA, Philipppines – A video of a heated argument between a taxi driver who didn’t have  change and an Ateneo Graduate School of Business Student with a P500-bill is making the rounds on social media.

Mark Buraga posted the video on his timeline on December 6.

On his video caption, Buraga said that he was late for his final examination because of a Red Angelo taxi driver.

I was late for my Final Exam in Ateneo because of this guy from RED ANGELO taxi. I’ve been calling the company but no one is answering.

He didn’t have change for my 500 so we had to go to the nearest gas station (petron jupiter) to break my 500. In Petron he took his fare and didn’t take me back to Ateneo, he left me there.

Kindly share, I want to make sure that the only thing he’ll be driving for the rest of his life is a pedicab. I want his license suspended.

Maraming Salamat Po!

The taxi driver was insisting that Buraga should have asked first if he has change for a P500 bill while repeatedly saying G*ago!

On the other hand, Buraga insisted that the driver should have been prepared with smaller bills.

With more than 500,000 views, over 15,000 likes and 18,000 shares on social media site Facebook. The video received mixed reactions from netizens.

    ang pinakamainam na gawin bago sumakay sa taxi eh itanong muna sa driver kung may ipansusukli ba sya sa 500 o 1000 kung sakaling sasakay sa taxi nya..ikaw namang taxi driver ayusin mo naman yang ugali mo..tingnan natin kung sa anak mo mangyari yan na aalipustahin at pagsasabihan ng di makain na mga salita eh..mamang driver madami ng balasubas dito sa pinas kaya please lang wag ka ng dumagdag pa..wala sa alignment ang utak mo eh..

    I think it’s also wrong for passengers to presume that taxi drivers would always have change for big bills. Konting unawa din, mas mabuti siguro na isipin ng sumasakay ang kalagayan ng taxi driver, wala silang dalang cash register, takot din naman silang mahold-up kaya hindi rin sila magdadala ng sobra sobrang pera. Dapat isipin ng sumasakay na obligasyon niya magdala ng rasonableng barya pambayad sa taxi o sa jeep.
