The Cheap Award: Man Returns $17000 - Gets $32 Reward
SO goes the honesty of a Phillipines taxi driver- Iluminado Boc.
He finds the 17K someone left in his taxi. Even though the poor smuck had an ill wife and overdue rent- he gives the found booty to the police in Tagbilaran City.
Even though the article states that Mr. Boc's reward of $32 "was 7 times what taxi drivers make in one day"- the least the cheap-assed person could have done was give Mr. Boc one-percent as a reward- or $170.
