Steve Bein. The Most Important Thing in the World. (Asimovs, March 2011)

A New York cabbie finds something left behind in his cab by a fare, something that gives him all the time in the world.

It appears to offer an opportunity to wealth and happiness, but when reunited with the owner, he realises that there have been prices to pay, and even more prices potentially to pay, and in the end he realises that being able to control time is not a panacea, and that the answers to his problems are altogether more straightforward.

An interesting take on temporal tweaking, with the cabbie coming across well as a very human, very real character.
