The good side:
A few weeks ago when I was in the early stages of my recovery, I walked down to the local shops to buy the missus a Valentines card. However on the way I lost my wallet. Now being on crutches I knew the wallet had to be a few minutes from the house as I had stopped to adjust the splint. But there was no sign of the wallet. After an hour I rang the police to report it and lo and behold it had been handed in. They returned it and nothing was missing, not even the 25 quid, 80 Euros or 20 dollars that I had in there. I rang the person who handed it in and offered a reqards to which he said no thanks! That really boosted my faith in people!!!
The bad (?) Side:
I was given permission by the physio to start cycling so today I went out for a ride. On the ride I got a call from a camera shop and ordered a bit for my new camera. I rode on, then got a flat. A guy help to fix the puncture, I offered some cash towards a charity ride he was training for but then I realised I had dropped my wallet AGAIN.
So I went looking for it....After retracing my steps ( only about 200Yds) from using the wallet to finding it lost, I was about to give up and head home. But one last go I thought. I spotted a group getting into a car that was in the area I thought I had lost it and asked them. Yep they had it...FANTASTIC ....BUT:
They said the wallet was on the floor with all the cards laying around. (strange!) I checked the contents and yep all the cards were there, but the cash had gone.... I thought maybe the wind had blown the cash away. However, all the reciepts were there. So I can only guess that someone has taken the cash and discarded the rest....Was it the people who returned it? I can't prove any thing but I am suspicious. So again I get away with loosing my wallet but this time it wasn't scot free!
