Today I was leaving a client's office when I looked down. On the ground I saw what looked like a bank credit card. I stopped and did a double take. It could not be a credit card. But it was. It was also a transit card and another card. I picked it up immediately and looked around. No one was on the sidewalk. I quickly tucked the cards in my pocket and looked around for a police officer. I was in an area where there are lots of cops.
On the way to my car I ran into no cruisers so I decided to go to a police station around the corner. A few minutes later I pulled up to what I thought was a police station. It turns out it was a police union shop and a police uniform and supply pick up location but there were plenty of police officers in attendance. I went up to an officer and told him I found a bank card around the corner and needed to know what to do with it. He jokingly said "You didn't use it? That is what everyone else would do." I told him I am not like everyone else. I am one of the few honest folks!
He took down my information and asked me where I found it, etc. Then he took the cards. I jokingly asked him what was stopping him from using the card to go shopping? He said he was well paid and didn't need to use it.
So I guess I did my good deed for the day. I hope the person gets their stuff back. I sure hope they were not mugged or anything. Maybe they just dropped it but it seems weird that it would be three cards if they dropped it.
