    What is not yours is not yours so don’t regret your good act. For all we know the money might not have belonged to the passenger personally and $100 was the only tip he could afford to give out.
    Indeed at the current exchange rate, the Naira equivalent of what the taxi driver got is in the region of N30,000 thirty thousand Naira and not that small an amount.

    To be honest, I myself was shocked. An honest man is honest not just because of what he may get, but because of the satisfaction and easy conscience it brings about. But when a man does this kind of thing, he unconsciously finds himself having expectations. The only occasion that would forgive this ingratitude on the part of the owner of that money is if the said money does not belong to him, as Big Koks suggests. N30,000 is an insult to N56,100,000.

    This remind me of a story told by one man (Late now) from my Village.
    He was among the railway workers in those days at the Eastern part of Nigeria.
    So when the white man who was in charge were about to pay salary, somehow, the money (some) felt down along the way (probably where the man dropped) while the trail was on the move,so this man eventually picked the money and knew very well it was from the moving train, he decided to run after the train in other to hand it over to the white man as a good gesture.

    Unfortunately, the white man thanked him but told him that he will never be useful his entire life…and honestly,this man remained to be useless until his demise.
    And the lesson here is,sometimes,it can be your own opportunity and try to use it to do good to yourself and others.
