A Cheyenne, Wyoming couple saw a dining room set advertised on Craigslist™ that they were interested in buying. They drove to Aurora, Colorado, where the dining room set was located, with cash for the purchase.
After making the purchase and loading-up the furniture, they decided to stop to eat at a Wendy’s restaurant just off I-25 in Denver. The man apparently dropped his wallet with credit cards, IDs and $1,200 in it as he got out of the car. When they made a temporary stop on I-25, they discovered that the wallet was missing. They called Wendy’s, believing that the billfold–or at least the $1,200–would be missing.
Luckily, Maricella Juarez, a Wendy’s employee, had recently arrived for work. She saw the billfold on the ground and promptly reported the find to her boss, who put the billfold in the store’s safe.
The couple returned to Wendy’s, where the billfold–with all contents intact– was returned to them. Ms. Juarez was commended by her boss and no doubt by the happy and relieved couple.
Isn’t America a great place?
