Usually cab drivers are peculiar about online payment mode or cash. Some won't be comfortable travelling long distances while others would sometimes cancel the ride minutes after waiting. However, one cab driver is winning hearts online after his response to a passenger who travelled in his cab but forgot to pay him and rushed to catch his flight at the Delhi airport.
Parminder Singh, former Managing Director of Google and Twitter took to the microblogging site to share this heartwarming incident. He shared that the cab driver understood that he didn't live in India. On calling and asking for details to transfer money, the "soft-spoken" cab driver refused to accept it. He said, "Koi baat nahi, phir kabhi aa jayenge" (No worries, money can come sometime later.) He was duly paid eventually.
"The soft spoken cab driver dropped us at Delhi airport. We walked off without paying. Desperately called to ask how to pay & he replied, 'Koi baat nahi, phir kabhi aa jayenge'. Won't even tell the amount. He knew we don't live here. We eventually paid him & learnt decency exists," Mr Singh said in the tweet.
