On our recent vacation, my husband left his iPad in the seat pocket on the plane in Charlotte, North Carolina. By the time he realized what he’d done, the plane was well on its way to Pittsburgh. We filed a report with the airlines, but they couldn’t find it and we just assumed we were out of luck.
When we got home, Tom had an email from someone saying they had found it and asking us to contact them. I have to admit I was a little skeptical because it was from a hotmail address and I figured they were going to want a king’s ransom to give it back.
Long story short, I responded, they asked where they should send it, I supplied an address and they sent another email this morning indicating it’s on its way.
I replied to thank them and tell them we’d like to send something as appreciation for their honesty and trouble, and they replied back:
There is no need for anything. All I can wish for is that if I lost something someone would return it.
Score one for humanity!

Nice to hear a story of a good deed. Thanks for sharing it, Brenda.
That’s great! Good ending to an eventful vacation!
You mean there is still an honest person left in the US?? Send this to the WH
There are honest people in the US, Dave. Just don’t look for them in DC.

And… the iPad arrived today safe and sound. I still can’t believe it found its way home.
Dave Adams Very lucky. Tom is happy and the guy who found it is a little richer!
