    Found A Wallet

    I found a wallet while digging clams this morning . It was all full of mud . I hosed it off when I got home .
    No money but there is his drivers license , credit cards , etc. . I found him on Facebook , but he hasn't posted in over a year . . I will knock on his door tomorrow .
    His father use to be the local chief of police .

    If it were me and I knew where the person lived I would mail it, without a return address but a printed note explaining where it was found. If there wasnt any cash for all you know that person's wallet was taken from him in an robbery. If so, you and I both know that you know nothing about it. But the cops don't know that and there is risk of a hassle.

    Do the right thing, then run like hell.

    Well no wonder there wasn't any money in it.

    I just cannot resist ethics = the right choices always give us the greatest satisfactions.

    And those choices keep us straight up. A happy life is the one we live straight up.

    I've found wallets/purses in creeks and woods in "vibrant and diverse" parts of town, and one rather off-putting spot I came across was a large concrete slab in the woods that was about 8 inches above the dirt, resting on rocks/rubble. I looked under the slab and saw gobs and gobs of pairs of shoes and something like 5 wallets all mysteriously owned by white folk, with trash, blunt wrappers, 100+ visible 40oz beer bottles laying around the area and a disgusting patch piled with months worth of human feces and plants around it killed by urine. I grabbed the wallets to deposit in a mailbox and got outta there quick before I got culturally enriched by the denizen(s) of that fetid lair too.

    In a different state, I was exploring a similar blighted area and found the remnants of what must have been in a stolen purse or wallet but unfortunately nothing personally identifying. I guess they took the ID and credit/debit cards, but left a scatter of Gift Cards in the leaves which I picked up. One was a Kay Jeweler's gift card with 400 bucks on it!

    Not sure how many of you do this, but often one sees gift cards in parking lots or in urban creeks (cards traveled down and out storm drains) and since they don't look like money most people leave them alone, but I always grab them and check the balances. More than 1/3 of the time in my experience they have money on them, sometimes a good amount.

    I gave him his wallet a few minuets ago . He never got the text from his father , but his father called him today and gave him my number . I met him at the fire station down the road . He was amazed ! He said he lost it about 3 years ago when he was on the oyster boat .

    Never fail to turn lost belongings in to someone. While working in a factory years ago the handyman came up to me and said he'd found a suitcase in the dumpster. We fished it out and with gloves on we ventured to open it. There was a full suit of ladies clothing right down to the frillies as well as her shoes and an empty purse. I had the receptionist call the Sheriff and he came out and looked. He wasn't a real agile man so he drove his cruiser through the empty field next door but found nothing.
    They have must felt, as I did, that no lady leaves that much stuff behind on purpose and why would she throw it away in a factory dumpster. I don't know how they put it together, NCIC perhaps, but I read an article in the paper about a month later that they'd put it together with a dead woman they'd found nude just off an interstate on ramp about 80 miles away. After that they linked it to a missing persons report and found the two guys that did it.
    When I see things like wallets and personal effects laying around it still gives me the willies.
