MANILA (UPDATE) - A man running late for work did not expect to share a carpool ride with his ex-girlfriend and her current partner ahead of Valentine's Day.

In a Facebook post, AJ Magallon joked that there must be something wrong with ride-hailing service Uber after he matched with his ex-girlfriend for a shared ride on Thursday.

"Hi, Uber PH, I matched with my ex and her new guy in Uber pool. Maybe there's something wrong with the application. Valentine's Day is near. Please have a fix on this ASAP," the caption read.

Magallon, who was seated beside the driver, said he was surprised when his ex-girlfriend's name and location popped up on his Uber driver's phone.

"I was picked up first by the driver then his cellphone alerted that we will pick someone up. So I checked the location of the other rider, then saw her name and the location," Magallon told ABS-CBN News.

But there was apparently no bad blood between the man and her ex, and he even made light of the situation. 

"I know naman na (boyfriend) niya 'yun and they are vocal naman on their relationship in social media. I'm a cool guy naman so I just told them na 'Hey guys, let's take a pic together'," he said.

Magallon said he and his ex-girlfriend were together for about two and a half years and that they remain friends after their breakup middle of last year. 

As of posting, Magallon's Facebook post has earned more than 6,000 reactions and 1,500 shares.
