Following is an item quoted in the Metropolitan Diary column of the NY Times, 7/10 edition:

"Chris and Hilary Wendel and friends recently took a taxi from the Upper West Side to Brooklyn. During the course of the journey, someone in the party mentioned that he was hungry. Before they knew what was happening, the Egyptian driver pulled over on Atlantic Avenue, got out of the cab and soon returned with mango drinks, baklava and other Mideast snacks. He refused payment, Mr. Wendel said, apparently happy to have his passengers experience Egyptian hospitality. Needless to say, the tip was generous."

He gets my vote.
