The most wonderful thing just happend to me- and I'd like to share it with all of you!
Recently, I was on a long road-trip and had to stop at a gas station to use the restroom (not ideal, TRUST me.) When I was in the ladies room I noticed a wallet, full of cash, credit cards and two different ID cards. I was shocked. There was at least $150.00 dollars in this wallet and all I could think was how terrible this person who lost the wallet must feel. It was a girl..in her mid-twenties, who must have left by accident.
Now if she is anything like me, or most of us mid-twenty'ers, $150.00 is a lot to lose. It's at least half of a car payment and it is painful for me to think of losing that much cash.
Long story short, I snail-mailed her wallet right back and hoped that I sent it to the correct person. Just today I received a package in the mail with a bag of awesome looking coffee and a wonderful little note. The note read:
I cannot thank you enough for sending me this wallet. I was frantic and figured it was gone for good. You have thoroughly restored my faith in humanity. Enjoy the coffee!!"
The sense of emotional joy that came when I read that note was amazing. It's surprising how many of my friends told me to take the cash and run, but I truly feel emotionally complete by helping this girl out. Would this be considered "emotionally-fit?" I would say so...
Would you have returned the wallet? Feel free to comment below!
