Hon­est Taxi Driver Re­turns Ex­ces­sive ‘Tip’

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - News Worth Sharing -

Zhang Peng is one hon­est taxi driver. When the Chi­nese cab­bie checked his taxi phone app, he re­alised a re­cent fare had paid 100 times what the fare ac­tu­ally cost. The con­sci­en­tious cab­bie fig­ured out the ex­ces­sive over-tip­pers were a group of four he had re­cently picked up from the train sta­tion and taken to a nearby ho­tel.

A Chi­nese-Amer­i­can tourist, who wasn’t fa­mil­iar with how to pay on­line, had ac­ci­den­tally paid 6500 yuan in­stead of 65 yuan (equiv­a­lent to pay­ing more than US$950 in­stead of US$9.50). So, Peng drove to the ho­tel and ex­plained the sit­u­a­tion to the staff be­fore con­nect­ing with the over-tip­per to re­fund the ex­cess fare. The tourist was be­yond de­lighted with the hon­esty of the trust­wor­thy cab­bie who would not ac­cept a re­ward. Not sur­pris­ingly, he re­ceived a fives­tar re­view on the app.
