The act of losing a wallet may be, for many folks, a serious issue. Most would assume that any cash can be kissed goodbye, credit cards need to be cancelled and a nightmarish trip to the DMV for a new license may be necessary.
The act of finding a wallet presents one with a completely different dilemma. Some folks might just grab the cash and drop the wallet, others may take the cash and try to use the cards before they are cancelled, but some simply look for identification with intentions of returning the item.
Pablo Pulido, a New Milford Patch user, found himself on the losing end of a wallet dilemma on Tuesday evening but woke up to a surprise on Wednesday.
“This is an open letter to a rider on the 177X bus from Port Authority to New Milford on Tues, January 14th. I wanted to thank you for the return of my wallet. I dropped it on the bus without realizing it, and found it in my mailbox the next day,” Pulido wrote on our Speak Out board.
The anonymous wallet returner saved Pablo time, money and provides a simple example of people caring about each other.
“I can not thank you enough and just wanted the people of our community to know of this random act of kindness. You did not leave your name or number so I can not thank you in person, but hope you see this note of gratitude,” wrote Pulido.
