Have you ever lost something valuable? It doesn’t matter if it’s a purse, wallet, phone, or envelope full of cash, the second you realize it’s gone is just about the worst moment you’ll have. Your heart leaps into your throat and you start frantically searching but it’s not there. Then, you’re forced to do that awful thing where you call everywhere you went that day and hope some good samaritan returned it. Usually you strike out, but occasionally you get lucky. Let us here at McCluskey Chevrolet, your home for buy here pay here ohio, tell you about a couple that got lucky in a big way.

A Seattle couple left an envelope full of cash in a Walmart shopping cart. It wasn’t until they saw an employee chasing them down that they realized their mistake. Inside the envelope was an incredible $20,000! Apparently, the money was for a down payment on a house that they were about to go finalize. The Walmart employee who returned the envelope makes $9 an hour, but still she returned it to the couple. We here at used cars Cincinnati admire the heck out of him!

“My conscience wouldn’t allow it,” the employee told the Times. “I couldn’t even drive home if I did that.”

The couple got lucky this time, and hopefully they’ll be more careful in the future!
