It’s common knowledge to be respectful to one another. Treating everyone, including strangers, with grace and civility without prejudice is a must!
However, some still fail to have basic human manners, just like this bus driver’s unacceptable behavior towards a man and his disabled mother.
Mikhail Adam took to Facebook to lament about the encounter he and his disabled mother experienced. The post has gone viral with over 14,000 shares. His post reads,
“The story goes like this; we were on a bus that was going to leave for Johor from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) when my mum, a disabled person (OKU), wanted to go to the toilet. So, I politely asked the bus driver’s permission to bring my mum to the toilet.”
“The reason I asked for permission is because I didn’t want to be left behind by the bus if I went to the toilet without the driver’s knowledge.”
However, shockingly, the bus driver reacted in a rude manner toward Mikhail and his poor mum. He continued,
“The bus driver uncivilly replied, ‘You can bring your mother to the toilet but if you’re late, I’ll leave you here. I’m in a rush and next time, refrain from bringing your old parents on buses because you cause discomfort to everyone by bringing them along’.”
Angered by the driver’s remarks, Mikhail was quick to fire back at the man’s insensitive comments against them, which led to a quarrel between the two men.
Eventually, Mikhail managed to take his mother to the toilet but after that, as the mother-son duo were getting on the bus again, the petty bus driver suddenly accelerated, causing Mikhail’s sickly-old mum to fall off the bus!
The unhappy Mikhail insisted that the owner of the bus company and the Ministry of Transport Malaysia should take the necessary actions on the insolent driver.
We understand that bus drivers are often in a rush since they have a time schedule to follow, but it doesn’t hurt nor does it take up your life to be nice to your passengers.
