Keys de­liv­ered to home

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

Re­cently, I had an up­set­ting ad­ven­ture when I lost my car keys to which I had at­tached my house keys.

I was out at a friend’s home, and we searched ev­ery­where, re­traced my steps, asked ev­ery­one in sight, but no keys.

To com­pli­cate mat­ters, I was us­ing a rental car so I couldn’t sim­ply dash home to get spare keys.

My friend had to drive me from the north end of the city to the south end, where the body shop gave me an­other set of keys. She then drove me back to her place and the car.

To make things worse, the lost keys were not in­side the car which I had hoped. With the spare car key I was able to drive home, get into my apart­ment with an­other spare key I had given to my neigh­bour.

I came home to a phone mes­sage from Red River Co-op. (I have their ID tab at­tached to my keys.) A kind gentleman named Adam had found my keys on the side­walk out­side my friend’s home, called Red River Co-op, who took his name and phone num­ber. They then re­layed this to me.

I called Adam at his work­place in the north end, and dis­cov­ered he lives in the south end of the city, too. He sug­gested he bring the keys to me on his way home, which he did. What won­der­ful peo­ple in this city! 1) My friend who drove me from one end of the city back.

2) The Red River Co-op worker who con­tacted me.

3) Adam who found my keys and had the pres­ence of mind to seek their owner then per­son­ally re­turn them to me. I am for­ever grate­ful. Thank you, thank you, Adam. You all made my day.
