"I accepted $1 and [moved] on," he said.

He shared a WhatsApp conversation between him and the cabby after the taxi driver had transferred him $200 in a private settlement.

He replied that he managed to get a cheaper reply and understood that driving a taxi amidst the spread of the coronavirus, or Covid-19, is hard and high risk.

He then offered to refund $199 to the cabby, keeping just $1 as compensation.

"It's not easy for taxi services to make a living during [this period]," he wrote.

Netizens commented on Fed's post, praising him for earning their respect.
