- Greg Laude wants to improve the morale of taxi drivers
- He buys 30 to 50 roses every day
Amid all the negative feedback on a number of taxi drivers, one has been doing a sweet gesture to his passengers in hopes to “improve the morale” of cabbies.
On Facebook, commuter Criss Subang shared her experience when she rode driver Greg Laude’s taxi.
“I was in the middle of booking grab when I noticed that there were only 5 or 6 people in the cab lane; yet noone took the taxi in line. I asked one of them if they were waiting for someone ahead of them in queue but they all said no. Apparently they were all waiting for their grabcars to arrive. I then decided to skip grab, avoid the waiting time and take the conventional way – I immediately went in the taxi. I saw a lot of rose petals scattered on the floor and as I was about to ask Sir Driver, he quietly handed me a rose. I didn’t get to ask anymore. I smiled and said thank you,” she shared.
Laude, who wants to improve the morale of taxi drivers, buys 30 to 50 roses every day.
“Sir Greg Laude does this every single day. Why? He said he wants to improve the morale of the taxi drivers who couldn’t afford being a member of grab (old units ain’t allowed to and he currently is renting one). ‘I want people to know that riding taxi is still safe. More so, I want to share happiness.’ He buys about 30-50 roses a day and gives it to all of his passengers. He said, ‘The money I spent buying those roses does not compare to the joy I give and receive. Seeing people happy is important. It makes me happy too.’ I wish we’re all like him,” wrote Subang.
