Even as the rider was leaving the area, the uncle wished him well and advised him to drive safely.

Members from the online community appreciated the uncle’s pleasant and positive gesture, saying it made their day.

“An enthusiastic, compassionate and definitely kind uncle who works 12 hours, six days a week and still able to be kind to fellow human beings. Such quality is rare,” said Facebook user Ashiqah Zulkifli. “These small gestures can impact one’s entire day.” Facebook user Sulin Han added that more people should behave the same way as it changes an ordinary day for some people into an extraordinary one.

Another netizen highlighted that only “down to earth people would understand and extend concern for others. This security guy wants to make the Grab delivery boy have a pleasant day.”
Others pointed out that this was the standard which security personnel should uphold. Meanwhile, many hoped that the man’s agency would hear of this experience and reward him accordingly.

Facebook user Dennis Yong noted in a comment that the man works for Prosec Services Pte Ltd., a leading security agency in Singapore. “I’m glad this gentleman is in one of my assignments and definitely he will be appreciated and rewarded. And thanks all for the compliments and encouraging replies,” wrote Mr Yong.

The Independent Singapore has reached out to Mr Yong, who confirmed the identity of the uncle. He is stationed at the Concourse Skyline Condominium at 300 Beach Road. Mr Yong is an Operations executive at Concourse Skyline, and they are planning to reward the security uncle with a S$100 cash incentive and an excellent customer service certificate. “It’s always our company direction for our securities for providing extra mile,” said Mr Yong.

Updates to the certification awarding will be provided.
