This is a cool story with a happy ending. I am delighted that there are still honest taxi drivers out there (though overall, I think Shanghai drivers are probably the most honest taxi drivers I've met in the world... so far). I think it would have been a nice of the bullion owner who lost the bag of bullion to have thrown at least a little bit of a reward towards the driver. I suppose doing good is a reward in itself. Extra blessings upon the taxi driver! Cabbie returns lost gold worth 1m yuan http://www.shanghaidaily.com/nsp/Metro/2013/04/18/Cabbie+returns+lost+gold+worth+1m+yuan/ By Zha Minjie | 2013-4-18 A TAXI driver will get a 200 yuan (US$32.39) reward from his company for recovering a bag of gold bullion worth more than a million yuan that a passenger left in his cab. "I'm not greedy and just wanted to do something good," said cabby Ni Longchun, who works for Shanghai Dazhong Taxi Co and has been driving a cab for nearly 10 years. He didn't get a reward from the bullion owner. As Ni picked up a passenger on March 5 in downtown Huangpu District, he saw a black bag lying beneath the back seats. "Don't move," Ni said he warned the passenger who was looking inside the bag and appeared ready to take the bag. While the passenger claimed it was his, Ni said he would turn him in to police. The bag with the six gold bars had been left by Ma Yonggen. When Ma realized he had misplaced the bag, he called police and the taxi company. "When I was looking up the police, I also received the call from my company about the lost bag," said the cabbie. The passenger he had onboard got out and he drove back to meet Ma to return the bullion. "I sweated in a hurry to send the bag back," said Ni. "I have never seen so many bullion bars," he said.
