I lost my wallet, and got it back.

Incredibly, a kind soul found it on the westbound King streetcar after I foolishly lost it, and turned it in.

Just as incredibly, the TTC Lost & Found Department at Bay Station actually called me to ask me to come in for it.

This can only mean that they actually looked at my I.D. and then googled me and found my telephone number. Incredible! This is wonderful and amazing.

I am amazed. I couldn’t thank the Lost Articles attendant enough. Really, I wouldn’t have ever bothered to look into the Lost & Found, believing it to be totally futile. Yet my wallet was intact; even the Metropass was there.

I wish there had been cash inside, and that the kind person who found my wallet had helped themselves. The line-ups that person has saved me from merit a cash reward, because time is more important than money.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I have had my wallet stolen twice in the last 18 months; I was really devastated to lose this one. I went to bed early, as soon as I was able to. I slept for ten and a half hours! I am getting a wallet chain (a la Kaleb Barker) and will never be separated from my cards and I.D. again. I should have thought of this a while ago, yet on the other hand, if I had done so a year ago, I wouldn’t have had the amazement I had this week, of knowing that people do give a damn.r
