Coming home after a work's evening out I lost my purse. I guessed it had fallen out my bag as I was being dropped off. While it was probably very close to my house I couldn't find it and had to cancel my debit cards, etc.
I'd had the purse for ten years as it was a Christmas present. It was a bright, red leather, Cheeky Monkey purse, so probably not very grown up for a 36 year old but I was very upset to have lost him!
Everyone I spoke to said I might get the purse back eventually but the money and vouchers in there would very likely disappear. I had therefore written off the contents of the purse and was even considering whether to move on and go "grown-up" when I was seeking a replacement.
I came home late the next night and my monkey purse was on my mat! I checked the contents and everything was intact including anything of cash value. I was astounded when I read the accompanying note which read, "I found this last night. It was too dark to go through it then, so I came back tonight. I got your address from your license. Sorry. Iain."
Not only had this man returned my purse but he was apologizing for not bringing it back sooner!
I have told everyone I know and the standard response was, "It restores your faith in human nature" and it prompted lots of stories about similar positive experiences.
There were no contact details so am unable to get in touch to say thank you to Iain, but I hope he gets to know how grateful I am!
