.....the world is full of them
When I got off my bike after my commute this morning I was horrified to discover that my wallet had somehow fallen out of the side pocket of my Top Peak bike bag. All I knew was that it would be somewhere between Croydon and Horley.
It was a crap way to start the week as I desperately clung on to the vague hope that it might be found by a honest person who might hand in to the old bill.
At about lunch time my phone rings and it's Costco to tell me that my Costco card and wallet have been found, they give me the phone number of the guy who's got them.
It turns out that a FedEx driver found my wallet with £40 cash and my debit card in the street and handed it in to the nearest shop. The shop owner first phoned Nationwide, who weren't interested (thanks for nothing Nationwide) he then phoned Costco who said no problem and they phoned me straightaway - a big thank you to Costco.
Quite a boring story I know but I thought it would provide a slight balance to the sadly more usual "thieving scum" stories. There are plenty of honest people in this world, and plenty who are prepared to be helpful to anonymous strangers without any need for personal reward (although I did leave a tenner in the shop for the FedEx driver should the shopkeeper manage to track him down) and they include FedEx drivers and the staff at Jesters Party Shop South Croydon
