Stephen Louise W. Tan belongs to a rare breed of honest taxi drivers in Cagayan de Oro City. Just last Thursday, February 20, he personally drove his taxi to Pagatpat which is more than 8 kilometers away from the City Proper just to return the cell phone left by his passenger.
Cellphone owner Tri Rachs was all praises for Stephen. In his Facebook post, he said he got into Stephen’s taxi at Polymedic Plaza bound for Pagatpat at around 4:00pm. After discovering he left his phone inside the taxi, he returned to Polymedic Plaza but couldn’t find the driver. Other taxi drivers in the area advised him to leave his number and assured him his phone will be returned unless other passengers took it first. At around 10:00pm same day, he received a text from Stephen saying he is already on his way to Pagatpat where he dropped him off.

Stephen even posted in his Facebook account showing a photo of the phone with a caption stating he’s going to Pagatpat to return it.
Kudos to Kuya Stephen.
