Bangladesh cabbie is toast of NYC
from the bbc:
A Bangladeshi immigrant taxi driver in New York is the toast of the Big Apple after returning a $500,000 lost bag of diamond rings to their rightful owner.
get this; turns out that the owner of the diamonds had a $10.70 fare, and she paid him $11.00. that's a 30 cent tip... (or 2.8%)! not even a measly dollar!
i'd she got very lucky, wouldn't you?
how much do you reckon this same woman tips her hair stylist...?
