    Cabbie returns 31 diamond rings to passenger

    NEW YORK - A taxi driver returned a black bag carrying 31 diamond rings to a passenger who earlier had given him a 30-cent tip on an $11 ride.

    Hours after Osman Chowdhury dropped off the passenger, he tracked her down through a flurry of phone calls and returned the bag, which she had left in the taxi’s trunk.

    The unidentified woman, who said she was a jeweler, offered a $100 reward.

    Chowdhury accepted the money to cover the fares he lost while tracking her down.

    Chowdhury, a native of Bangladesh, told the New York Daily News that he didn’t so much as consider keeping the gems.

    “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.

    Good for him.
    It is nice to see some people take pride in the intrinsic goodness of an act, and not do so just because he is expecting a reward.

    Sounds like the passenger was a cheap ass though.
    30 cent tip for the ride and $100 reward for 31 diamond rings?
    Karma is going to get her in the end...

    I would've kept the rings for sure.
    Women seems like one that keeps the purse a little too tight.
    The universe will even out in the end.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Wow. He only got a $100 reward too. What a cheap @$$ lady. Good to see we still have good citizens left in the US!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
