Malaysian Grab Driver With A Speech Disorder Writes Cute Note To Explain It To Passengers
"If you are having a bad day, my ears are all yours."
We've heard of several recent GrabFood riders who work hard despite having disabilities
This time, a man from Miri, Sarawak who has a speech disability has gone viral for an adorable note he wrote for his passengers
In his note, the driver introduces himself to passengers in an unconventional manner
He wrote: "Dear passengers, you may have noticed that I'm a very quiet guy. That's because I believe Silence is Golden. I'm actually so hilarious. I'm the only one who gets my jokes."
The driver then went on to explain his type of disability.
"The truth is I was born with a speech problem. After words have been formed in my brain, it takes a long time for them to be sent to my mouth to be spoken out," he wrote, adding jokingly that his "audio system" is somehow "wrongly wired".
He continued by reassuring passengers that his disability however, does not affect his ability to drive
"[I'm] certainly not deaf. My eyesight is sharp and my mind is clear. So, be rest assured that you're in safe hands when you sit in my car. I can bring you safely to your destination," he wrote.
He even took the opportunity to list down three types of rides passengers can select from: Silent ride, Therapy ride, and Friendly ride
Under 'Therapy ride', the driver wrote: "If you are having a bad day, my ears are all yours. And so are my shoulders for you to cry on."
And if passengers select 'Friendly ride', the man wrote that he can smile and wink in the rearview mirror from time to time.
He ended his note by thanking passengers for taking his humble Grab car service.
The netizen captioned her Facebook post commending the driver for being "innovative" and "funny".
