This Guy Invited His Taxi Driver To The Theme Park With Him Because He’d Never Been

Liam Murphy, an engineer from Cork, Ireland is currently visiting the United Arab Emirates for work. On his day off, he decided to visit the theme park Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. On the way there, he discovered that his taxi driver, Shakiha, had never been to a theme park and was going to “wait in the car for four hours.” So Murphy invited him along…


Together they toured the theme park and Shakiha even rode his first roller coaster – which happens to be the fastest in the world. Murphy learned that Shakiha has lived in Abu Dhabi for 14 years. The rest of his family lives in India and he sends money home each month.


Murphy paid for Shakiha’s admission (about $68) and on top of that, bought the man dinner.

“Every time he drops passengers off he stays in the car for the day,” Murphy told BuzzFeed. “I decided to bring him along… I bought him some pizza on the way home.”


Although Shakiha felt a bit ill after the ride, both men enjoyed their day together

    Thank god this wasn’t the United States, the taxi driver would’ve sued the guy for making him ill because he’s allergic to pizza and fast moving vehicles.
