Lady Apologises After Falsely Accusing Grab Driver Of Masturbating In Front Of Her

Given the power of social media in this age of technology, a simple accusation in a single post or tweet can easily ruin someone’s reputation. A lady in Penang recently made the mistake of accusing her Grab driver of masturbating in front of her, only to realise it was a misunderstanding on her part.

The lady had first posted on Facebook on 6 May to detail how her “perverted” Grab driver had taken off his pants and masturbated in the car while she was sitting in the backseat. Out of panic, the lady then called her boyfriend and stayed on the call with him throughout her whole ride. She also stated that she had reported the matter to Grab after arriving home safely.

In her post that was originally in Chinese, the lady wrote “I didn’t cause you to lose this job, you are just not suited to be a Grab driver. Although you didn’t hurt me today, I don’t want the next customer to be like me, meeting a perverted driver like you.”

The post then caught the attention of netizens, who urged the lady to lodge a police report. But there are also others who suspected the lady of slandering the driver as she had no evidence to back up her story.

Moreover, netizens also found that the driver managed to maintain an excellent track record of 4.8 star rating after driving with Grab for five years. For some reason, the details aren’t lining up in the lady’s story.

Fast forward to two days later, the lady had come forward with another post to explain the situation, It turns out the poor driver was not wearing pants because he had a urine bag, and since the matter was not communicated by Grab, the lady was unaware and thought otherwise.

And as a female and the only passenger in the car, she was afraid of taking pictures or photos in fear of getting attacked, which makes sense. Luckily upon discovering the truth, the lady was willing to admit her mistake and publicly apologised to the Grab driver, while also deleting her original post.

Although the driver had been suspended after the lady’s report, he managed to get reinstated by Grab and despite this, he never held a grudge against the lady either. “Apology accepted and I just wanted to clear my name and reputation. Thank you,” wrote the driver in response to the lady’s post.

It’s good to know that everything worked out in the end but at the same time, this story should serve as a reminder for us to always try to understand the full story before jumping to conclusions to avoid accidentally accusing someone innocent.
