A Knight In A Shining Taxi Cab July 26, 2012 – Posted by jess_lyons04
I’m from Ireland and while away in another county to attend a gig I had my handbag stolen!

My bag contained the money my friend and I needed to pay for our accomodation the following morning and our fares to get back home the next day. It left us in an awful prediciment!

While looking for the Bed and Breakfast place we were staying in, I stopped at a Taxi rank to ask for directions.

On hearing about what had happened one of the drivers offered to take us there for free. Seeing us safely to the B&B, he drove off – then returned and dropped €100 out the taxi window for us. At first we refused to take it. He insisted, and told us he had been in a similar situation once and someone had helped him. When he asked for a phone number or a forwarding address so he could return the money the other person simply replied, "Don’t pay it back – pay it forward!"

So, he did!
