UPDATE: December 27, 2013: Although they often say that no good deed goes unpunished, for when, some one whom did the right thing has really gotten rewarded for it: cab driver Gerardo Gamboa had a little merrier xmas after receiving a $10,000 reward from the mystery poker player to who the $300,000 in cash belonged, as well as another $1,000 from their boss Yellow Star cab and a $250 dining certificate.
Apparently like ransom money the cash, still bundled in those $5,000 wads, was fallen off at undisclosed location by Mystery Poker Person for Gamboa’s good deed.
When you are a Las Vegas cab driver, you won’t ever know who or what find yourself in your taxi on any provided time. So veteran driver Gerardo Gamboa was unfazed each time a Bellagio hotel doorman, opening the cab’s rear door to assist a new customer in, noticed a brown paper bag left in the seat by the cab’s previous occupant, apparently. He didn’t even bother to look inside once the doorman use it his passenger chair until he got to a light and curiosity got the very best of him. Guessing that chocolates lay in wait, he took a peek in, with illicit ideas in mind should his conjecture be correct.
‘What type of chocolates are they?’ Gamboa pondered. ‘Are they good ones that I really could buy some for my wife as a present?’
