It’s my turn to pay it for­ward

JUST a short note to let ev­ery­one know there are still good peo­ple out there.

I drive about an hour into Win­nipeg ev­ery week to play vol­ley­ball in a men’s league. A cou­ple of weeks ago, I got out of my ve­hi­cle at the In­vestor’s Group Ath­letic Cen­tre at the Univer­sity of Man­i­toba and put my wal­let into my pocket. That was the last time I saw it. A cou­ple of hours later when I was leav­ing, I re­al­ized it was gone. I re­traced my steps and even drove back into Win­nipeg the next day look­ing for it with no suc­cess.

I had $180 in it along with credit cards and the rest of my ID. That’s more cash than I nor­mally carry. I can­celled my credit cards and dreaded the task of re­plac­ing ev­ery­thing else.

Five days later, I re­ceived a call from the Bank of Montreal in Tuxedo that some­one had turned my wal­let in to their branch be­cause of a credit card that I had. When I picked it up, ev­ery­thing was still in it, in­clud­ing the cash.

Sadly, no name was left. To whomever re­turned the wal­let: thank you! I guess it is my turn to pay it for­ward.
