April 18, 2024: Lost & Found

I misplaced my wallet last summer. I was pretty sure it was somewhere around the house, but I wasn't able to find it. I could (mostly) pay for stuff with my phone and I was monitoring my accounts for any weird charges, so everything was mostly fine. After a week and a half or so, I gave up and replaced all the cards and IDs and moved on with my life.

On Monday, I received a hand written card from a grocery store in an area I'm occasionally in, but not often, saying someone had turned my wallet into them. I stopped by there yesterday and they indeed had my old wallet in pristine condition with all inventory accounted for. The person working there when I stopped by didn't know anything about it but I am very curious how it ended up there ten months after the fact.
