Hey there, time traveller!

I know some cab drivers in this city have behaved badly and brought the occupation into disrepute, but not all cabbies are bad.
The other night I had to take a cab home, then realized I had lost my debit card. When the driver dropped me off, I told him I would give him my $350 iPod as collateral for the $15 cab ride. He agreed and told me to call him the next day.
The next day I realized I might not get my iPod back. I was wrong. The cab driver came to my door (out of his way, and he didn’t charge me for the drive to my place) and delivered my iPod. I gave him $40 for the ride and his troubles.
He could have easily sold my iPod for much more than the $15 ride. He was such a nice guy. He told me he trusted me to meet up the next day, as I should with him.
Thanks, random cab driver, for being legit and helping me out.
