Yesterday, June 21st 2015, I was in the next town over, Folkestone, waiting in line to buy tickets for my son’s performance. I went to check my phone, and it was gone. As I have a Galaxy Note 3, it is not easy to misplace in a pocket. I still patted all pockets and found nothing. My daughter and I started to retrace our steps, and she rang my phone to see if we could hear it. A woman answered.
She said she had found the phone on the floor and was going to take it to the Vodafone shop (phone provider I am with) but it was closed. She agreed to head towards us so she could give me the phone back.
When we met, I thanked her and offered her money as a reward for finding it. She refused saying that giving it back to me was payment enough.
People like her are few and far between and in this world with murders, deaths, muggings, kidnappings and worse, having someone like her is a miracle. I didn’t think to ask for her name, I wish I had done so I could thank her properly.
So if she ever does manage to see this …
