This is a nice story....but isn't it sad how such a nice story about someone doing the right thing makes news. Why wouldn't or shouldn't the taxi driver keep the money safe and do all he can to find out who the money belongs to? It's a sad state of world affairs that we think this is newsworthy! Come on world.... Honest up!

wow what a fcukin nice story, just makes me cry all over my shitty keyboard. it's great to hear that there are morons, oops i meant gentlemen who are there to give you a hand (in the face?) when you need it... i will now carry my suitcase full of dollaros with total calm from deep inside.
strange ... perhaps he was very drunk to leave money and chips in the car? or intoxicated he win? in any case, well then that ends well ... well that the driver got honest and returned everything that I forgot passenger

What a touching story. It made me cry like a baby. Jacob must have been so relieved when he retrieved his money. An unconditional willingness to act as a civilized human being anonymous Uber driver has shown deserves admiration.

First: why is so hard to cash-in those chips after you won them, makes no sense to bag them up... Especially if you forget you have them and try 2 exchange them after the casino bring on a new set. Second: once you have your money, just make a nice sized roll from it and put it into your pockets. Why is so hard in having common sense?
