When I was living in Salt Lake I left my purse at the Trax station and I for sure thought it was gone! I went back and it was missing and I for sure thought someone had stolen it cause it had money, my cards, id, everything. Later that day I got a call from the police station and someone had brought my purse in to them!! And it was a little old homeless lady!! She hadn’t taken anything! I have always given food and money to homeless people I walk by but I never got to thank this lady but I wish I could somehow!

I could write out all the times I’ve lost my purse, wallet, cellphone, jacket but I would be here typing out at least the 5 or 6 stories that I can remember right now. I’m so thankful to the kind people that have made the effort to return almost everything I’ve lost and I always make sure to return the favour when I can.

I forgot my iPhone at a Dillard’s cash register and didn’t realize it for over 20 minutes. I raced back in just KNOWING it would be gone, and a sweet family of about 6 women all asked for my phone number and began calling it for me. Somebody had turned it in and the cashier had it safe and sound for me!

I left my purse (ok my giant bag full of all the shit i carry around on a daily basis) in the cart in a WALMART (of all places!) parking lot. I got almost home before I realized I was missing it, raced back, cursing and nearly in tears, and someone had turned it in to the lost and found. At Walmart. Unbelievable!!

Wow, great stories! I agree these should be on the news more. Sadly, TV stations know that scary/bad = more ratings, but it totally warps how we see the world! I do believe that most people are naturally good.

I recently pulled up to the ATM and there was a card in there all logged in. I turned it in to the bank, and afterward thought to myself, hm, I wonder how many people would have taken money rather than being honest and turning in the card? I’m glad to hear there are other people out there who think like me! 🙂

Fiance left his wallet on the roof of his car once after getting gas (oops!) and of course as he turned a corner on his way home, the wallet flew off. He was so upset when he couldn’t find it later that evening, we were calling the police station, the gas station, the grocery store next to the gas station. We drove the entire route to and from the gas station 4 times looking for the wallet on the side of the road. He had finally decided someone took it and he was about to start calling to cancel his cards. Then he got a phone call from his boss. The guy who found the wallet looked inside and found his business card and called his office. We gave the guy $20 to thank him for being honest and turning it in.

FYI- In the future, he should call his bank immediately to cancel the card. I am surprised the bank didn’t block it when they received it. My bank blocks any card turned in for liability reasons. When I bartended, we also had to call and report any cards left behind for the same reason. I had my purse stolen a few weeks ago and I called the police and then MasterCard to block my card. They caught the guy and since I blocked my card right after he stole it, he didnt have time to use it.
