Guard returns P500,000 left by condo resident
"If I had kept the money, I would be able to buy a lot of things. But who knows what that would cost me in the long run?"
- George Bacod, honest man
Quezon City, Philippines - Were he a weaker man, George Bacod, a security guard at a Quezon City condominium, will be preparing a generous Christmas feast for his family by now.
But Bacod, 27, did not think of these lures when he decided to return P500,000 to a person who had left a belt bag full of peso and dollar bills at the condominium lobby where Bacod was on duty one November evening.
