$410,000 Thai Golden Cab Driver!
[ Life]

A Thai cab driver tracked down a forgetful customer who left over $400,000 worth of gold in his cab this past Tuesday. The 56-year-old cabby, Saksri Ketsrikaew apparently drove around for several days searching for the owner.

Meanwhile, Eakerat Kanokwattana, the owner of the gold which was in the form of ornaments he intended to trade in a business deal, had already filed a report with authorities. Ketsrikaew heard the report about the gold on a local radio show and called the station. He then was contacted by Kanokwattana who arranged for the gold to be returned.

In the end, the cab driver was given a reward of golden ornaments worth well over $6000 by the grateful gold vendor. It is a story of true altruism or possibly ignorance of how much the ornaments were worth. I’ll leave it up to you to decide. I don’t know that there’s anything I can add that people on Twitter haven’t already said.
