While the free gifts were enough to spawn likes, the netizens are more impressed about the driver’s heartfelt notion that giving away these small gifts doesn’t trouble him as knowing the recipient appreciates it gives him something to smile about each day. Words like this always sound extra sweet when it comes from a Khun Lung Jai Dee or “kind uncle”.

The post also mentioned that the taxi driver probably gets a lot of regular customers since there were name cards left around for the customers to take.
