    Agent who lost Blackberry hails taxi driver's good deed

    Advertisement



    FIFA agent David Ferguson, who is currently negotiating deals between Chinese and Scottish clubs, had left the handheld computer in the taxi. It contained contact numbers for clubs and players around the world, as well as details of several confidential contracts.

    He said he had been "unsettled" by the thought he could have dropped it anywhere between Beijing's Tiananmen Square and Tynecastle.

    But the driver of city cab number 962, who did not want to be named, spent the best part of Friday evening tracking him down.

    Mr Ferguson said he was impressed, especially when the driver refused any reward.

    Pretty encouraging story... Hmm, does this mean soccer, surprisingly, brings out the best in people?

    Re: Agent who lost Blackberry hails taxi driver's good deed

    I remember getting a taxi into town with a couple mates, and the taxi driver told us a quick story.

    One of his mates at the company had taken a lady in his taxi, who had left her handbag in the back of his taxi. It had Ł1500 cash in it. He returned it to her house when he finished his shift, with all the money present. The lady, rather than thank him for his honesty and promptness, claimed there was substantially more money in the handbag than there was.

    Cue long investigation, and company policy on belongings left behind in taxis, changed.

    Sad times.

    This simply means that there are indeed a few good people left in the world.

    That's pretty awesome, but don't expect it to happen to you. People just aren't like that much anymore.
