This old man who begs for food speaks English fluently and was a former professor.
One netizen shared her experience which is nothing like the rest.
She was asked by a stranger saying, “Miss, I’m sorry but I have to tell you something. Please don’t get mad. And Sorry to bother you but I’m not gonna ask for money, I’ll be asking for food to eat ‘coz I’m hungry.”
The netizen named Faye agreed and led the stranger to Jollibee. The old man was shocked at first but still happy to have someone helped him. Upon entering the fast-food chain, Faye requested the old man to look for an available seat while she orders their food. As soon as Faye arrived at their table carrying something to eat, the man was relieved thinking that she already left him.
While eating Faye and the old man exchange conversation and discovered something that really makes her shocked. The old man’s name is Jansen Locson, a 70-year-old man who graduated from Ateneo de Manila and a former UP and Ateneo professor.
Jansen does not have his own family, only two sisters left after his father died. He was in Cebu for a business but unfortunately, it didn’t go well leaving him bankrupt.
After eating and chatting about their lives, Faye offered Jansen a bottle of water and a hundred pesos which he totally refused. Faye insisted for him to accept the money so he can buy something when he gets hungry again. The old man accepted Faye’s help and asked for her contact number so he could thank him again after that they exchanged goodbyes and went separate ways.
Faye also encourages netizens to share Jansen’s story so it could reach his family in Bacolod, she added that the old man could be found living near SM mall.
