Gam­bler re­wards hon­est cab­bie

China Daily (Canada) - - LIFE -

An hon­est cab­bie was given a $10,000 re­ward last week af­ter re­turn­ing the $300,000 he found on the back seat of his Las Ve­gas taxi. The owner of the aban­doned wad, a poker player, made good on his prom­ise, hand­ing over the $10,000 re­ward to the cab­bie who re­turned the stash. Yel­low Checker Star Cab Com­pany also hon­ored the driver’s good deed by nam­ing him em­ployee of the year, award­ing him $1,000 and giv­ing him a gift cer­tifi­cate to a Las Ve­gas steak­house. A ho­tel door­man no­ticed a brown pa­per bag on the back seat of the taxi out­side of the Bel­la­gio casino and handed it to the taxi driver, who thought it was sweets. The driver said he had another pas­sen­ger by the time he be­gan won­der­ing what kind of choco­lates were in the brown pa­per bag. He peeked in­side at a traf­fic light and spot­ted the cash. It took sev­eral hours to ver­ify the iden­tity of the owner and re­turn the cash.
