Let me ask you the same question in a different scenario: What if you paid your $25 bar tab with a $50 bill and the bartender gave you back $75 - thinking you gave him a $100 bill. Would you chug your drinks, grab the cash and leave? Or would you take $20 and give back the rest - explaining to him his error?I gave a ride to an attractive women with her child, maybe 5 miles away. The neighborhood of the pickup was in a depressed area of town. It was obvious to me when she got into the car that she knew NO English. I mean nothing. No problem. We're on our way.
When I pulled up to the address of the drop-off she started to hand me a $50 dollar bill! I thought she was giving me a tip.
I told her that was too much. I assumed she wasn't aware of the currency and exactly how much she was giving me, so I refused.
I then deduced based on some hand gestures toward the app that she thought she had to pay for the ride.
I gave the the OK sign and told her everything was paid. I did not take the $50.
Don't regret it.
What would you do?
