On Super Bowl Sunday, alert “06880” reader Beth Saunders asked her husband to run to Whole Foods for cilantro. (You know: guacamole.)
He had just played squash. Not until he left the store did he notice his wallet had fallen out of his gym pants.
He headed back inside. Someone had already turned it in — with $500 still inside.
He told Beth the story. She peppered him with questions.
“Who do you think was so kind? An employee? A shopper? A woman? Didn’t you ask? Who was at the desk? And who carries $500 in their wallet?”
There were still no answers.
So, Beth says, “I’m just throwing out a ‘thank you’ to the universe.”
We don’t know who this week’s Unsung Hero is. But as John Wooden said, “The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is looking.”
