A Facebook user shared how he boarded a Gojek car and had a chat with the driver during his ride, during which the driver told him that he makes $17k per month.
Netizens were quick to express their envy, except for one netizen who listed down the reasons why there was nothing to be envious of.
Here is what he said
Let’s be fair, is it possible? Yes, but it comes as a tons of reasons, driving a excessive inhumane 16-18hours, no commitments, no family (or no time for family) no friends, deprivation of sleep, endangering basically everyone on the road, innocent road users and risking your pax life.
Simply said, a road menace that risk killing innocent life, life is so much more than just driving like a dog and still being proud of that.
Look at all the traffic accident, it is almost like by default that phv must be involved in every single crash.
Anyone of us here can do that do, driving for non stop for 16- 18 hours daily. But being a responsible road users, a responsible father, a child, we know better.
So there isn’t anything worth being envy of.
One friend of mine, works as a FL chicken, earning $900 to $1500 per day, and nett more then 20k monthly, is there any thing worth to be proud of the earnings?
Money should never be a gauge of how rich a person is, I am rich because I am blessed to be able to spend time with my mother, bringing her for her medical check up, for dinner, bringing my child to his fav playground, celebrating festival with my wife.
But some people are rich with only money.
