Some stories have a happy ending

In today's Bangkok Post is the story of a lady who had left all her money and valuables on a bus in Bangkok. She was so distraught she attempted to commit suicide by walking with her young niece out into the traffic. A good samaritan stopped her and helped her to contact the bus company. Miracle of miracles she was able to recover her money and gold. The bus conductor who had found the lady's purse said:

''I didn't know what was inside and didn't open it because I was trained not to open anything passengers leave on the bus,'' said the bus conductor, Jindaphon Harikhampha, 27.

I am impressed! In the past such an event as forgetting your handbag on the bus or in a taxi would mean 'goodbye' valuables.
