There are some pretty good people out there, and we’ve been guilty in the past of focusing on the not-so-good, so when I found out about this guy it was a definite breath of fresh air.

Meet Liam Murphy, a test engineer from Cork, Ireland, who is currently visiting the United Arab Emirates on business.

On Sunday, he took a trip to Ferrari World, an indoor theme park home to the fastest ride on the planet, however, upon approaching the park he discovered that his taxi driver, Shakiha, had never been – but was prepared to wait for Liam for over four hours.

So, being the good man that he is, Liam kindly decided to take Shakiha into the theme park so he could enjoy it for the first, and possibly the last time – and if the photos are anything to go by, they had a ball…

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Liam said: “Every time he drops passengers off he stays in the car for the day. I decided to bring him along for the laugh. He was great entertainment. I bought him some pizza on the way home. His family are in India and he said he sends money home each month. I felt sorry for him.”
