Karmic Goodness!!

Three months ago, I turned in $20 someone had left at the grocery store. Today, I left my wallet at that same grocery store. Since I vividly remember walking out of the store with it, I must have left it on the cart outside. This was around 11am. At 11pm, I tried to pay for hotel reservations online and realized the wallet was gone. I've never lost a wallet before (well, as an adult) and was really really kicking myself. The grocery store's open until midnight, so I called, got grilled on description, name, etc...and was told my wallet was there!!! I went to pick it up and everything is still it in and in the place I left it! Of course, I'll be watching my credit and checking accounts MUCH closer for a while just to be on the safe side, but it certainly appears as though one monumentally good citizen turned it in undisturbed and a string of employees throughout the day left it undisturbed. What goes around, comes around.....woo hoo!!!

In all fairness and honesty, I must admit that a while back I had some diapers on the bottom of my cart at Target that I forgot to pay for and given a weak moment (when it was over 100 degrees and I already had both kids strapped in the car), I didn't go back in and pay for them. So I'm still a little on the negative side of things karma-wise. Though, those diapers did give Sedona diaper rash, making them only barely usable, so maybe that's my payback for that? And I've checked the bottom of my cart ever since!

Whoever you are, thank you fellow citizen!

That is SO AWESOME!!!! And I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only "weak" person sometimes, too.... last weekend I had a Houston Chronicle at the bottom of my cart that I realized I hadn't paid for..... and I totally just threw it in the trunk with everything else and took my tired baby home!!!

I really think that's an awesome gesture! It definitely makes me have hope for mankind, but specifically those wacky HEB shoppers that drive me crazy!

I left a pack of bottled water under the cart and forgot to pay for it. The next time I went grocery shopping, I asked him to add it to my total and explained why. He said, "and you want to pay for it?" I said yes and he said, "why?" You could have knocked him over with a feather, LOL!

As a side note, I agree with you. Nabisco should sell that cream filling by the tub!

I'm so glad you got your wallet back. My debit card somehow missed getting into my wallet two weeks ago at HEB, but it was picked up and used. :( Thankfully, our bank refunded the charge.
