VIRAL: Netizens laud parking boy who saved Php175 to eat at restaurant

Nowadays, one of favorite pastimes of Filipinos is eating at samgyupsal restaurants.

However, because of the unlimited amount of food that you can eat, these restaurants can be a bit pricey. That is why this particular parking boy decided to work hard and save money just to treat himself and eat at one of these restaurants.

As seen in a Facebook post by Yumgyeopsal-Baliwag Branch, they narrated the story of a young boy who worked around the area by helping drivers park their cars.

The restaurant said that the boy would often visit them and ask for rice and a glass of iced tea.

Until one day, he asked one of the waiters how much would it cost to eat inside.

“Since we have kids’ rate, (4 ft above is regular price) and he’s above 4 ft but he told him na Php175 na lang pag kumain siya,” the Facebook post reads.

Lo and behold, the kid returned shortly after carrying coins worth Php175 to pay for his meal.

The restaurant also said that they have learned something significant from their young customer.

“Of course we accepted his payment, not because mukha kaming pera, but to teach him that if he wants something, he has to work for it.

I also learned that there’s nothing wrong of treating yourself when it comes to food once in a while. Don’t feel guilty. Imagine this kid treating himself nga e,” it said.

The young boy’s story has since gone viral on social media garnering more than 117,000 reactions and 28,000 shares on Facebook.

Several netizens also commended the young boy for working hard to get what he wants, regardless of how simple it might seem.

“I have a strong feeling this young man is not your ordinary street boy. He is determined to enjoy the food without begging and it surely made him feel entitled as a paying customer. Thanks for sharing. It elicited a lot of positive reactions and it warms our hearts that something like this do really happen nowadays . Thnk you to the management for your compassion and may we have more of your kind in the food industry. God bless us all,” one netizen said.

“As a kid he already has the necessary requirement for success. Imagine how he earn/save the money? While some of the kids are just playing and watching movies all day this kid may be hustling on the streets. Reminds me of story of Andrew Carnegie. Thanks for sharing. This kid certainly has a good future,” another one said.

“Amazing. It’s nice to learn the value of hard work and reward. Nothing in this world is free. Pag sunod sa mga simple notion of ‘work for it to earning it’ will mold a person big time. Sana ganito din ang mindset ng ibang mga bata,” another netizen wrote.
