    Found a phone

    I was pulling into my work last week @ 4am and as I was driving threw the parking lott I saw a cell phone on the ground so I picked it up and put it in my car,forgot about it for a couple of days & then tried to turn it on,dead!,so my son was up from college for his 21st. birthday,and I asked him if he new how to turn it on.He plugged his charger into it and got it to work,he scrolled thru the phone #'s and found a sisters phone # and told her that I found the phone & for her to call back.
    Later that night she called me and asked where she could pick it up,2 days later her husband shows up at my job and asks if I was the guy who found a phone.I said yes & gave it to him.
    Today she comes in the store and thanks me personally and gives me $20,I told her no,but she gave it anyways.I took it and gave in to the West,Tx. relief fund/here in Texas
