My wife, who works in retail, recently found a wallet at her place of employment. Contained therein was every credit card known to mankind and $2000.00 cash.

Let me begin by saying that the gentleman who lost the wallet was EXTREMELY fortunate that it was someone like my wife who found it and not someone like myself who wouldn't have thought twice about lifting the cash out before returning it.

My wife and I are students and we have a child. I can only imagine how tempting, especially at Xmas time, it was for her to keep the cash.

However, she called the gentleman in question (why i am calling him a gentleman escapes me because he proves to be quite the contrary.) and had him collect the wallet.

This man did not even say thank-you. His only comment to my insanely honest wife was 'yeah, it would have been a pain replacing all those cards'.




Nice buddy...real nice. Even if you won't cough up a reward, and I say 'won't' because he was quite well off if judged by appearance and wallet thickness, the least you could do is say thank you.
