Man Overpays for Flower Garland; Vendor Gives Number to Press to Give 500 Baht Back in Prachinburi

The vendor was taught by his father to be honest about money.

When: February 6th, 2021

Where: Phanom Sarakham district, Chachoengsao province

What: On February 6th, 2021, a flower garland vendor who sells at the intersection in front of a Tesco Lotus in Prachinburi was overpaid by a customer. The normal price for the garland would be 20 baht. The customer accidentally handed the vendor 500 baht. Once the vendor saw what happened, he tried chasing down the truck but couldn’t catch up.

Since then, the vendor, Mr. Chatree Kongkam, 28, has given his phone number to the press in hope that the customer will contact him so that he may return the money.

Mr. Chatree said that he doesn’t want the extra money. His father taught him to be honest about money and it is a large sum for himself. He wants to return it back to the customer and asks that the customer call him at 061-564-1480 at any time.
