At a very young age, we were always taught that honesty is the best policy. As much as possible, adults have instilled in our minds to never lie about something no matter what it is. Admittedly, not all of us have taken into mind this golden rule as we grew up. Still, there are a few people who turned out to be good and honest adults. Although these so-called honest people never ask for anything in return, reward still comes into their lives no matter how big or small. Such is the case of this female bus conductor from Thailand who did a good deed during her shift.
According to a report from Coconuts Bangkok, a female bus conductor saw a backpack which was left behind by one of their passengers. Upon opening the backpack to check what it contained, she was stunned to see a whopping amount of cash worth at least 1 million Thai Baht (or roughly PHP 1.5 million).
Despite seeing the huge sum of money, which could help her and her family out of poverty, she was not tempted to take it and instead returned it to its rightful owner.
The 50-year-old bus conductor, named Sumon Matidul, took the bag to Samut Prakarn police to ask for their help. She then told them that one of their male passengers left it behind inside their bus. According to Sumon, she remembers what the said passenger looked like – a man wearing glasses who was roughly 30 years old. The conductor added that the man got on the bus at Bangna Intersection and got off of it at Big C at Puchao Saming Phrai.
The owner of the bag then realized that his belongings were missing which is why he went to the same police station to ask if anybody found his money. Lucky for him, the conductor was a good and honest person. As a reward though, the man gave the conductor two bags of candies for her honesty.
Obviously, people won’t be very pleased if they were to receive two bags of candies as a reward but Sumon didn’t seem to mind. In fact, she was quite happy to receive the said reward as she gave it to her young daughter when she got home.
