Bus conductor returns 1 million baht cash to doctor, gets candy as reward

In a feel-good Monday story, a noble bus conductor yesterday returned a forgotten backpack containing over 1 million baht in cash (more than USD29,000) to a passenger, who rewarded her for her honesty with — two bags of candy.

Sumon Matidul, 50, the conductor of Bus No. 511, which runs on the Bangkok outskirts, took the backpack filled with THB1.12 million in cash to the Samut Prakarn police, saying a male passenger had left it on a seat.

Sumon told police she remembered the passenger well — a 30-something man in glasses, who got on the bus at Bangna Intersection and left at Big C at Puchao Saming Phrai.

If that doctor is as mindful in his job, as he is with his finances, I would not think twice only before letting him work on my body; it might not be fun, running arould with a scalpel or another tool forgotten inside. ;D

As to the reward question: Upright thankfulness might mean a lot more to some people than a part of the returned cash. So I wouldn't criticise on the reward. It's something between the conductor and the doctor. Other people should stay out of that. Maybe the conductor found a private doctor now, who really cares for her when she is in need of medical services.

Yes and she'll be left on the seat of the bus forgotten just like the cash was :-[

Wallet returned to tourist before Suvarnabhumi departure


An airport official returns a wallet left in a taxi to British tourist Charles Mann at Gate D1A at Suvarnabhumi airport. (Public relations office of Suvarnabhumi airport)

A British tourist was lucky to get his wallet back just before leaving Thailand to Myanmar, thanks to a good taxi driver.

Pongpisut Promkote, the taxi driver, said after dropping the tourist at the airport at 9.40am, he pulled over at a petrol station for a break and found the passenger's wallet on the rear seat.

He called JS100 traffic radio for help to locate the passenger and drove back to the airport to hand it over to Suvarnabhumi Airport police station at 11am.

Pol Lt Col Kaweerat Bangkhomtham said police checked what was inside and found 10,354 baht in cash, credit cards and a business card bearing the name of the tourist and his phone number.

Authorities checked flight schedules to Myanmar and found that Bangkok Airways flight PG709 to Mandalay would leave at noon at Gate D1A, with the name of the tourist on the passenger list.

Security officers at the airport then called a Bangkok Airway staff at the gate before going there. Five minutes before the aircraft was scheduled to leave, the wallet was returned to the owner.
