Bangkok taxi driver returns 120,000 baht and other valuables to Australian tourist

Recommended Posts

Two split system air con units a metre apart on the back wall????...........the FM91 public relations office must be a source of some very hot air.   

 

Anyway, thank you Mr Senha for your exceptional display of honesty.   Many a taxi driver would have nicked the lot and then slept well that night.

Just the usual propaganda news that pops up on a regular basis to save face. No way all those people constantly forget large sums in a cab.

Another honest Bangkok taxi driver ...…  Thailand has the most honest taxi drivers in the world. They are all honest, you leave anything in the cab... ipad, 200,000k, rolex, gold chain, wallet, land title deed, anything worth money … don't worry, don't even think about it  … it will all come to you by the radio station.

NO BIG NEWS STORY - In any normal country this is not a face saving exercise- just do the right them as a common staff mistake - no need for public relations media - BS 

In over 20 years of visiting and living in Thailand, I have never been ripped off by a driver. I have encountered jerks, quoting ridiculous fares. But, I have never encountered a scam.
 

My wife once left behind a package she picked up from Thai Post. Later that evening, after he returned the taxi, the driver showed up on his motorcycle, package in hand. Our address was on the package. 

Thai taxi drivers are brutally criticized, to the point that many tourists are afraid to even catch one from the airports. They really do need this "BS" to help counter the bad rep a bit.

We was about due one these honest taxi driver stories 

More likely it was about due time to read of a brain dead, careless customer leaving behind a wad of cash & valuables.

This sounds odd to say the least the guy has a bag with 120000 in it and valuables and he doesn't keep an eye on it but somehow the staff have it?

Thank heavens for another "honest cabbie" story at long last.

I was beginning to get withdrawal symptoms.
