Taxi Driver Goes Back to Passenger’s Home and Returns $731 She Forgot in His Cab – Her and Her Family Can’t Hold Back Tears
A taxi driver returned to the house where he dropped off a passenger and returned her lost money.
A Ghanaian taxi driver has won the hearts of social media users after he returned GH¢8,000 ($730.59 USD) that was dropped in his vehicle by a market woman.
The woman, who sells fish at the Mallam Atta Market, chartered the unknown driver and forgot her money in the car.
Why a Taxi Driver Returned to a Passenger’s Home
The driver saw the money but didn’t have the opportunity to return it the same day. The next morning, he returned it to the home where he had dropped her off, and it was all caught on video.
Upon seeing him, the woman and her relatives, who had already realized that she lost the money, couldn’t hold back their tears as they hugged him.
“We haven’t slept all night. We are grateful you returned it, sir. Thank you very much,” another one said.
“God richly bless, sir,” the market woman said in the video.
One Driver’s Integrity Touched the World
The video went viral, and commenters praised the driver. “Only a few bad nuts are taking the shine out of the good deeds of millions of Ghanaians. Ghana is still an icon in the world.” Alfred Okyere-Darko said on Facebook.
By choosing to return the money instead of keeping it, the driver helped the passenger renew her faith in humanity. His integrity will be remembered by thousands and with this simple gesture he helped a woman who had earned the money after doing honest work.
That’s definitely one happy passenger.
