    Wink Honesty!!

    Well it was the other day i was on my way to wembley topps tiles when i decided that i would pull over for a short break it was about 0630am i stopped at gateway services at the bottom of the M1.

    Cutting a Long story short i went to the toilet in the services upon entering the cubicle i spotted a Wallet on the floor there was no body else in the tiolet at the time so i picked it up.Checked inside and there was a driving licence and a number of identity cards and also £120 cash.
    Now bearing in mind and past experience i decided to go and hand it in as i was looking at the driving licence i noticed the adress was leicester and about five mins down the road from where i live (How ironic)anyway this then made me change my mind about handing it in.
    The course of action i took was to ring my wife at home and tell her to find the number for the address and contact them and inform them that i had the wallet and i would bring it to that address later that day.

    Cutting short again i manged to get in touch with owner of the wallet and arrange for him to come to my house and pick the wallet up ,anyway the owner was very greatful for my honesty and gave me £20 for the trouble.

    Thanks for reading and sorry for the boredom that has set in cheers al the best nick.

    Wot would have you done???

    well done Nick..theres not many in this world who'd go to the lengths you did..If you'd have handed it in he'd prob got it back empty..
