Thumbs up Humanity.... not over yet

My wife ran out to Wal Mart for whatever. I asked her to take my wallet in case they had Bowman Chrome.

She comes home with $400 in Bowman Chrome, but left my wallet in the cart in the parking lot. Some cash, most of my CCs, and my ID etc.

Drives back to Wal Mart and an older Spanish woman who was cleaning the parking lot and bring in the carts found it. She brought it to the office.

To top it off, the lady did not want a reward at all. My wife finally got her to take at least $20 once the manager said it was ok to accept it.

Just wanted to give a shoutout to the nameless nice lady who did not keep my wallet.

Heartwarming story...there are definitely good examples of humanity still out there.

You should have given her a blaster.....or El Guapo.

El Guapo? It was supposed to be a REWARD!

That's what I said.

$400 in blasters and a measly $20 reward for returning your wallet untouched??

CHEAPSKATE!

So, because the lady is "Spanish," you suggest giving her El Guapo as a reward? You, my friend, are a biggot in the worst way possible.

OP's story, positive for humanity. Some of the comments here take us all right back into the sewer.

1 step forward, 2 steps backward.

Hit a gold mazaro auto in the last blaster.

There wasn't much cash in the wallet, but it was all still there.

25% now? Well... since you can only make #@#@#@#@ up, why not keep changing your numbers. If it ain't broke, why fix it?

Thats awesome..nice to hear this..

My mom dropped her wallet on a city street one time, and it was not an expensive wallet, but one her mother (who passed away) gave to her. And there was like $200 in cash.

What do you know, 3 weeks later, we get a bubble mailer with the wallet and money and everything inside it. I guess they looked at ther ID and sent it to that address.
