How can people be so horrible?!

Yesterday, I left my Coach wallet (which was a present from big sister) at restaurant when I had to abruptly leave because my son was throwing a tantrum. My wallet contained $60 cash, my debit and atm card, 2 gift cards to restaurants (also gifts), the police report number from the person that hit my car last week, and a whole slew of other things. I called the restaurant today and naturally, no one turned it in. How in the world could anyone be okay with just keeping MY wallet?! Especially if they saw me leave it and saw that I have a small child! That $60 was to pay for the chicken we are having at my son's 1st birthday party on Saturday. I don't understand the scum bags in this world.

  • Some people were not taught to have a conscience. Some people were taught right but changed as "life happened" to them. And some people just plain DON'T CARE. Some people get a kick out of hurting other people. It's an awful thing and I'm sorry it happened to you.

  • I know. It's disgusting. I'm so sorry. It seriously sicken me how selfish some people are these days, that they think it's okay to steal from and hurt another person for their own selfish reasons.

  • That sucks. Not everyone is like that though but there are sure some money grabbers out there. I would have handed it all in...because that is exactly how I would want someone to treat me. I know that doesn't make you feel better..but some people are just scummy :(

  • People are pretty shallow. But honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was your waitress that took it!
