Education official fails tuk-tuk arithmetic 101

A drunken staffer from the Education Ministry got a maths lesson on Tuesday.

Police said the man had approached a tuk-tuk driver asking for a ride from the capital’s Daun Penh district to Chbar Ampov.

After offering 10,000 riel, the driver countered with a request for 15,000, which sent the civil servant into a sputtering rage.

When the tuk-tuk driver took umbrage, the ministry employee then struck him in the mouth. Bad move, as the tuk-tuk driver got on his walkie-talkie and fellow drivers soon materialised.

Thinking better of the situation, the would-be passenger ended up apologising and paying 320,000 riel, about $80, to extricate himself from the situation.
