LOOK: Delivery guy braves floods in QC for his job

by | Lifestyle

The rainy season in the Philippines continues to bring heavy rains in many parts of the country. Last week, typhoon Gorio brought heavy downpour and even floods in Metro Manila and nearby places. For those who were helpless to head off the markets or restaurants, fast food chains—and delivery crew, too—saved the day!

Recently, photos of a fast food chain’s delivery man from Frisco in Quezon City went viral after braving flooded streets on July 27 while carrying bags of food.

While the customer who placed the order received flak from some netizens, the delivery guy in the viral photos, Adrian Ilagan Dayanghirang, defended the customers.

“Hindi po alam ng managers namin na baha dun sa area. [Kung] alam po ng managers namin yun, hindi po kami talaga makakadeliver dun. [Wala] pong kasalanan sina customer dito, talaga lang pong tumaas ang tubig sa patuloy na pag-ulan,” Dayanghirang said in a comment to Batang Pinoy – Born in the 80s raised in 90s’ post on Facebook.


He added, “Siguro po nung umorder sila hindi pa inaabot ng baha yung building nila.”

Dayanghirang’s statement came as a response to netizens’ comments, calling the customer “insensitivity”.

A Facebook user said, “Buti sana kung ang taas ng sweldo ng mga service crew na kayod kalabaw. Dapat [kapag] alam niyo nang malalagay sa peligro yung tao, hindi na dapat nagpapadeliver.”

Another netizen also commented, “Salute to Kuya kasi kahit na gaano pa kataas ‘yong baha, laban pa rin siya at ginawa pa rin niya yung trabaho niya!”

 

Dayanghirang thanked the netizens for their concern, but clarified that he knows the threats he may encounter in his job.

 

“Masaya po na intense yung nangyari sa akin. Matagal tagal na din po ako sa serbisyo kaya alam ko naman po yung mga risks. Tuloy lang ang trabaho. Tuloy lang ang buhay,” he said.

 

Dayanghirang’s photos have been shared 8,178 times and have gathered over 24,000 reactions in a span of four days.
