Generally when you get in a taxi you’re able to sit back and relax as the driver takes you to your destination; however, one young woman found herself unable to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Cristina Tan had hailed a taxi to take her to her home in Manila. While the cab driver was driving the two got talking and he mentioned how tired he was. At 70 years old, it was getting to be a lot for him to be out driving all day, but he needed to do it to support his family.

Tan’s cab driver wasn’t sure he could continue the trip.

The elderly man reportedly told Tan to take another cab because he was so exhausted and he didn’t feel it would be safe if he continued driving. Since Tan was still a distance from her destination she told the driver that she would drive instead.

Tan wrote on Facebook that at first the driver was hesitant, but he eventually agreed to let her drive.

While the cab driver slept in the back of his car, Tan drove herself home.

Now that’s something you don’t see every day!
