Upon leaving the petrol station, the man couldn’t resist making another jab, mocking her by mentioning her monthly income of approximately RM1,500.

Izzaty, on the verge of tears, shared her story while visibly upset by the encounter. Despite her anger, she said she tried to maintain composure due to his status as a customer.

Following the upload of her video, netizens flooded the comments section with words of support for Izzaty, praising her patience in handling such disrespectful customers.

Many also shared their own similar encounters while working their own minimum-wage jobs.

In her post, Izzaty urged viewers to refrain from mocking others without understanding the circumstances they face.

This incident serves as a stark reminder that higher education does not guarantee compassion or kindness. It is crucial to cultivate empathy and appreciation for those who work diligently to make a living. Let us all remember this story and strive to be more understanding and respectful towards individuals facing various challenges in their chosen professions.
