A photo of this old man went viral on social media as it was shared by a certain Jeff Garcia on his social media post. On the photo, the old man slept in the sidewalk as he has beside him his bananas that he was selling. Maybe because of so much tiredness of selling those bananas, the old man could not help himself but sleep.
His photo has a caption that says:
“Nakakahiya naman dun sa iba na puro reklamo na lang. Ginawa pang rason ang kahirapan para gumawa ng mga iligal na gawain. Samantalang si tatay kahit mahina na ang katawan, nagsusumikap pa rin para mabuhay, huwag lang mamalimos. Godless you tatay.”
It already earned 41,000 reactions, 4,500 comments and 68,000 shares. A lot of netizens could not help it but praised the old man for selling bananas instead of just asking alms from other people. Age is just a number especially when you are working hard for the sake of your family.
