How much does an iPhone cost? Probably at least P30,000 nowadays. Well, for cab driver Mervin Tinoy, being honest is priceless as returning the smart phone to the rightful owner.
The story goes last June 5, 2016 at around 6pm with Keith Angel Jablan and his grandmother riding a van from Laguindingan Airport after a month-long holiday from Hong Kong. They were en-route to Bukidnon. However, they rode the wrong van which dropped them at SM City instead of Agora. There, they rode Mervin’s taxi who took them to Agora. Because of their heavy luggage and tiresome long trip, Keith did not notice his phone dropped inside the taxi. It was only when they’re on board the bus to Bukidnon that he noticed his phone was missing. Arriving home, they called up his cellphone which was answered by Mervin. They asked him to keep it safe as they would come back the next morning to pick it up. They agreed to meet at Limketkai.
Photo above shows Keith and Mervin with the thumbs-up sign after their meeting at Limketkai. Keith got his phone back and his mother wanted to share his experience with good Mervin. Mervin can be contacted at +63926-859-7035 ??.
