Bravo the bus drivers ...

A bus driver in Skiathos found a wallet with 600 euros and handed it over ...


A bus driver in Skiathos found and handed over to her owner her wallet, which contained a large sum of money. The incident took place this afternoon last Friday, when a young Voliotissa, which operates business on the island of Northern Sporades, used the bus on the line Skiathos-Koukounaries. 


But reaching her destination she lost her wallet. As soon as he discovered his loss, he contacted the bus owner, Mr. Yiannis Tsiflidis. The latter, after receiving the phone call, contacted his driver, Yiannis Kariofyli, and asked him to check the bus seats. After checking, he actually found the missing wallet, which just opened it in front of the coach of the bus, Christos Makris,

The honesty of the driver gave a good end to Voliotissa's adventure, which soon received the wallet with the money. "Giannis has been in my job for many years now. It is a diamond character. He comes from Skiathos, where he marries and is a great family man. His move to return the wallet, not even thinking about keeping the foreign money, has moved me, but reminds us that we must start thinking again more human if we want to hope for better days, "he commented Mr. Tsiflidis, with 70-year-old Skiatitis then referring to a similar incident that he experienced during his active driver: 

"Just 15 years ago, I found in my bus a leather bag. It contained 500. 000 drachmas and belonged to a Greek-American tourist. I kept her and when we spotted who was her owner, he came and took her from the collector I had at that time. But instead of saying "thank you," she was content to say that she would not mind if she did not find her again. On the contrary, now our girl said a thousand thanks when we told her how we found her wallet. "
