There are still nice people on this planet. Besides me. Besides you.
There are others.
I have proof.
I have proof that I am a goof too. Not that you really needed proof.
We got a few phone messages last weekend from a man & a woman in broken English saying something about them finding OUR phone. We all had our cell phones. So I just figured he had the wrong number.
Then we got a few more messages about a found phone. Then I started thinking: Could it be Lo’s cell phone that was stolen from school…back in the fall of ‘08?? naaahhh.
I relayed the messages to Coach and he said: call them, it could be her cell phone, or you can let them know they have the wrong number.
So I called and left them a message.
A woman called back the next day and said: I find your phone on 31 street.
My first thoughts were: this is a scam of some sort. I just know someone has a goal in life to scam me.
Me: huh? on 31st street? that is the street I live on. What does the phone look like?
Spanish woman: It is silver and black……. House phone.
Me: OH. It is my house phone???? **me smacking my head**
Long story short. My silly self left one of our house phones on the bumper of my car when I was working in the yard. I forgot about it an left later in the day…. This nice lady found it on the street, but did not know which house it belonged to. She found the number in our phone and put in her cell phone before my phone went dead she and her husband called us as many as 5 times.
She brought it back to us this week. SOOO nice. I was so impressed that they went through the trouble to get it back to us. They live about 8 miles away.
We have 4 phones in the house and I was just complaining a day before: there is a phone missing somewhere in this house…those darn kids left it somewhere!!!
yeah, I am the darn kid.
Maybe it is my karma coming around for all the good deeds I do?
*A few weeks ago I found a cell phone in Target and took it directly to a manager.
*I found a full wallet at Christmas-time in Target. (maybe I am in Target too much?)
Anyone else find any good folks out there lately?
Isn’t it astonishing that a simple act like this just amazes me/us, when in actuality, it should be the norm. We should always help each other out. The world would go ‘round a bit better I think.
