Returned Wallet

I lost my wallet yesterday. I was pretty sure it had fallen out of my purse on the bus, so I called the bus company and they said they hadn't found it. I called a friend and borrowed a bus ticket so I could get to work and planned to call the credit card companies and bank in the morning to get all new stuff.

I got to work and received a call from my neighbor. He said that a man had stopped by the house with my wallet. He had found it on the bus and was sure that I was frantic by then so he wanted to make sure he returned it to me as soon as possible (this was 8 in the morning). The lucky part of the story is that my driver's license, which is the only thing with my address on it, originally had only my old address. But the week before this, I had received change of address stickers in the mail that I had attached to my license, so he was able to find my current address. I am so incredibly grateful to this person (who left his card at my neighbor's insistence) for returning my wallet. It's an incredible relief.

The same thing happened to me a while back. Maybe we've all become too cynical--people can be surprisingly kind.

Third time's the charm?

That happened to me once! I dropped my wallet and a neighbor found it; we didn't even know each others' names, only faces, but my licence was in there so she knew it was mine, and she put up a sign in the building so I'd know to come to her apartment. :)
