“Don’t judge a people dahil sa itsura.”
This is the moral lesson learned by the online seller who have encountered a boy customer booking him to buy a cellphone worth Php4,500.00.
On the Facebook post of Monasque U. Rhemuel, he narrated his experience with the young boy who booked with him and insisted to buy a cellphone. At first, he underestimated the boy because he knows by its profile pic on Facebook that the one contacted him was just a boy and he was thinking it’s just a fake account.
He continued that there meet up time was set at 7:00 hour in the morning. He did not pay much attention on it but the young boy continued texting him that he has already at the meeting place.
Monasque challenges the boy to take picture of him proving that he was really at their meeting place. The boy replied with a picture proving that he was already at the meeting place. This prompted him to come over because he thought that the boy was just running for errand.
Upon the arrival of the online seller, he saw the young boy was using Samsung A70 phone, which convinced him that he is a legit buyer.
When they started exchange words each other, Monasque found out that the young boy customer used to save money to buy the cellphone for his younger sibling for the online class.
Upon knowing it, Monasque was touched and pricked on his heart to learn a lesson that no matter what, it’s not good to judge anyone based on what you can see to them.
The post of the online seller went viral online and garnered various reactions from the online community.
