Quoting lizzielouaf:

Wow that woman squandered away a perfect opportunity to teach her children a POSITIVE message. That's very unfortunate.

i couldn't NOT turn it in. that's just wrong..

side note: once, while 7mos pregnant with my 2nd, i took my 3yo on a long, awful bus ride to his pedi, so he could start school the next day. it was my only chance to get him his physical for prek. we had to take 3 busses starting at like 6am, all i had was a bus pass and an emergency 5$ (i was young and poor but trying to do what i could).
after missing 2 busses, i caught one and as we got up, a large black woman told me i had dropped my wallet on the seat. if i'd had money to thank her with, i'd have given it to her, but all i had was a heartfelt thank you. had i left it on the bus, i'd have no bus pass, no money, and be stuck in a different city(the pedi was 45 mins away in a nearby city). she saved me and my child from a dreadful situation.

you never know someone's situation. always do the right thing.

This story is actually fairly old. The update is that the wallet was returned with all of its original contents intact including the money.


Update: Jan. 10 - The case of the missing wallet took a turn for the good when Fayetteville resident Joseph Smith received a call from the Fayetteville Police Dept. on Jan. 9 saying that a call had been received from the Pike County Sheriff's Office indicating that the wallet and its original contents had been turned in by an attorney. Fayetteville officers said they will pick up the wallet and return it to the family, said Smith.

WOW - Is about all I can say.

Is that what she would want someone to do if she lost her wallet? People need to think about that! She is nothing but a thief and just taught her children how to steal as well!!!! Disgusting! She is a prime example of what is wrong with this world!
