SG ❤️ – someone returned my lost wallet
Went out for a run this morning and 10km later realised my wallet had managed to fall out of my pocket. I walked back the last 2km or so of the run without seeing it and realised it would be very unlikely to find it that way. Went home and put blocks on my cards, applied for a replacement IC.
6pm tonight I was on a work call when someone rang the doorbell. He said his employee had found the wallet this morning outside their business and passed it to him.
There was a few hundred dollars untouched in the wallet, all my cards there, and he refused to take a reward for his effort going out of his way to drop it off.
Some days you just have to wonder at how great people in this city are. Thank you Singapore!
- I’ve noticed this about Singapore where I’ve left things at busy restaurants by mistake, went back several hours later to either find it untouched or picked up and kept aside by the staff. It’s a really comforting feeling!
- Dropped my wallet on a feeder bus, on concession so didn’t tap out and didn’t even realise it was gone, woke up next morning by my sister who said a couple came by to return my wallet :’)
- Experienced this today as well! Not me, but my dad misplaced his wallet in a rental car. He didn’t even notice it! Till some kind souls drove all the way to our place to return the wallet. Thankful that we do have great young people around!
- Had a good meal and left my work laptop at a restaurant. Sauntered out satisfied from my meal and was window shopping for 15minutes when I thought about the work I need to do at home. Then something felt amiss and my laptop to do my work is missing. I ran back to restaurant and the staff handed it back to me…. Whew…
