Now you mightn't expect this in New York.
I hailed a yellow Cab to take us to a restaurant, sitting in the front seat I accidently hit my leg against the credit card unit and, undetected, my mobile phone slipped out of my pocket. I discovered an hour later that it was lost and by deduction thought that I must have lost it either in, or getting out of the Yellow Cab and I said good bye to my phone. Back in the apartment I took a chance and googled â€œ Yellow Cabs lost and found ". I trawled through the site and found a report form which I filled in and sent back on line with my sons mobile number included. Less than 12 hours later he received a call to say that the phone had been handed in and that it would be delivered to his apartment. Within 24 hrs my phone was delivered - by the same taxi driver â€“ to my sonâ€™s apartment. Now you mightnâ€™t expect that from a Yellow Cab in New York. My faith in New York taxi drivers has been restored. Michael Doorley
