2016 has been a dark year for Planet Earth, so we’ll take feel good stories where we can get em. This story comes to us from Thailand. Waralop, 44, from Thailand, had what equates to $20 when he spotted a Hermes wallet with (what equates to) $600 and credit cards inside. However, instead of keeping it for himself and buying some clothes and food – as most people would – Woralop immediately turned it into the police instead. That strong moral compass paid off for him.
According to Metro:
Owner Niity Pongkriangyos, 30, was so happy when police told him they’d found his wallet, he offered Woralop a job at his factory in Bangkok.
Nitty said: ‘I was totally surprised when the police told me they had my wallet as I didn’t even know I’d lost it. My first reaction was ‘wow’, if it was me in that position with no money I probably would have kept it.
‘But he was homeless and had just a few coins in his pocket and still handed it in. That shows a good, honest person. Just the kind of staff we need.’
Pongkriangyos initially offered Woralop $60 reward but then decided to make the job offer instead. Woralop’s new job comes with accommodation plus a $315 salary.
Gotta love when the light of the human heart shines through. We need more stories like these.
