    i jumped out of the car and by the time the taxi was driving away, i realised that all my money and my phone must have spilled out of my handbag!

    After a few panicked calls to Bluebird, we managed to get on to the driver, and my belongings were returned to me within 10 minutes.

    I cannot tell you how relieved i was. just to lose my mobile phone would be so difficult to replace, as i have a lot of numbers stored for work.

    of course, i tipped the driver nicely, and I also wrote to Bluebird to commend him.

    I thought it was a nice story to post on here, considering its often only the negatives that are spoken about.
    awh! So great.

    That is a nice story, I wonder if it was because he was Balinese and believed in karma. Hope stories like this are still happening :)

    I hate to say it but it would seem that all "nice" people have moved on to Twitter/FB/having a life and such like posts don't seem to happen anymore...

    I'm sure it's my fault
