THANK YOU, MR. ANONYMOUS TRUCK DRIVER!!!!!!!
So....long story short, Heather lost her wallet today. She was FRANTIC!!!! After retracing our steps to look for it, we came home. She was getting ready to make her calls regarding her cards and such, when she saw there was a voicemail. Luckily, she checked her voicemail before cancelling her cards--A truck driver who had just left a dealership after dropping off a load of cars spotted her wallet and its contents scattered on Jonestown Road (near the on ramp from I83). HE (60 yo man!!) PULLED HIS RIG OVER...GOT OUT (IN LUNCH TRAFFIC!!!) AND GATHERED UP HER WALLET AND ALL OF ITS CONTENTS (which were SCATTERED all over the road!!) !!!! He saw (on her license) she was young and thought she would be frantic about it, called the State police, who told him to take it to the local police dept (which he couldn't do, seeing that he really couldn't drive the 89 ft rig through Lower Paxton Township :)). He then saw there was a business card from where she purchased her car in her wallet,called them, gave them her information and his number, and decided to stay pulled over until he heard back from someone. The car place found her information in their files, called her and left her a message (after trying to track her down where she works, which didn't work because she was off today!) with the truck driver's number. She called him right away, and arranged to meet him about 5 min. away from here (I went with her). We met up with him and he was REALLY hesitant to take ANYTHING, but he did finally take $10 and 5 free MetroMint water coupons that I had grabbed before we headed out :). We don't even know his name, but are SO THANKFUL that there ARE honest, NONJERKS left in the world!
