SERIES: Lost Purse Part 3

October 22nd, 2008 at 07:49 am

This is a series about a certain purse owned by the Sangl Family. Unlike every other series I have written, I am NOT excited to be writing this one.

Part 3 - A Chance
Jenn was devastated over the loss of her purse. I gave her some money to go get the Chinese food and started unloading the car.

About ten minutes after Jenn had left, my cell phone rang with the caller ID reading "Jennifer Sangl". I thought, "Jenn has found her phone!"

I answered the phone and said, "Jenn! You found your purse!"

A voice on the other end said, "Hello?"

Short story - the caller was the McDonald's employee. They had went out in the lobby and Jenn's purse was still sitting IN THE LOBBY. It had been there for over seven hours!

I asked the caller to tell me her name and told her that if she would mail it to me, there would be a reward. I think she is a teenager - she had no clue about how to mail something. No clue! I had to walk her through exactly how to mail it.

That was on Sunday evening.

On Monday, late in the morning, I received another phone call from Jenn's phone. The girl was at the post office to mail the purse! She said, "I have no money. Can I use some of the money in the purse?" Apparently, the money was still in the purse!!!

My answer? AB-SO-LUTE-LY!

    I found two credit cards and contacted the people and they came and got them. I also found a purse in the post office and the lady came to my house to pick it up. I am so happy for you.

    I've found two credit cards in the past few months also, one outside a CVS and the other outside Target. (I was actually excited when I saw the Target one from a distance because I thought it was a gift card, although I guessed it would have no value left on it.) In both cases, I turned the the credit cards in at the customer service, but I don't know if they try to track the people down or just wait for them to show up. It gives me a better feeling knowing that security has them rather than someone with ill intent, but then again, a lot of people work at those customer service booths, so you just never know....
    I left my cell phone in the shopping cart at Walmart one time, and was pleasantly surprised that someone had turned it in. It's sad that we have to be surprised to get something of value back when we lose it. Anyhow, I hope it all works out for you.

    we get a lot of bank cards left at my work, and we usually call the bank and tell them the cardholders name. then they ask us to chop up the card, and then they call the owner of it.
