He got rewarded with pride. Most people would have just kept the diamonds, though, so I gotta give him props :)

EDIT: Cheap jeweler, though :(

The unidentified woman, who said she was a jeweler, offered a $100 reward. Osman accepted the money to cover the fares he lost while tracking her down.
Poor dude didn't really make out much on the reward but at least he can live with himself knowing he made the right choice.

typically round up plus a couple bucks... like if it's 26.50 i'll just give 'em like 30?

i normally don't take cabs unless i'm drunk or in vegas gambling, and in both cases, i can get pretty generous so... it really depends

"I'm a hard worker," the soft-spoken cabbie said. "I enjoy my life. I'm satisfied. I'm not going to take someone else's money or property to make me rich. I don't want it that way."

"When I find something left in my cab, and I can return it to the owner, I feel very happy. I feel proud," he said.
:thumbsup:

It's funny you say this. When I saw this yesterday, I thought the exact same thing!

You would think she would have corrected her ways after giving him such a lousy tip! Now he returns 30+ diamonds and all she could give him is a $100? Dayum!

30 diamond's at most likely a minimum of 1,000 bucks each and he gets $100 bucks. He was more likely sitting on anywhere from 50,000-100,000 in diamonds and he got $100. Good for him he keeps his pride, but as for me my pride can be bought and 100k seems like a fair price.

it's possible that the jeweler isn't exactly rich herself. Sure she had that bag of diamonds, but they may not be hers, so it's hard to tell whether if she is rich herself.

But yes, $0.30 on a $11 ride is pretty cheap

i don't tip cab drivers squat! of course where i'm at it's one drunk guy with a beat up manual neon that jerks all over and smells. then they cram you in with a bunch of over stinkers even though you called yesterday to guarantee your time. i shouldn't have to sit three deep in the back of a neon.
