Sometimes you just get lucky
« on: July 22, 2019, 06:27:19 PM »
Last Saturday my wife went to wash her SUV at a local automated/self serve car wash. She left her phone with bank card on the hood and drove off when she was finished. About two miles down the road she realized what she had done and retraced her steps back to the car wash.
Security camera at the car wash shows the phone on the hood when she drove off. So she returns home extremely upset. Phone had an app that when remotely activated wiped it clean. Cancelled the bank card. Traced her route in my car but no luck.
This morning I received a phone call. The phone had been found. The person that found it works at A&M and was talking to a co-worker who realized she knew my wife when she worked there. They called H&R to get contact information and the person that answered the phone is my neighbor of 25 years. I mean what are the odds of all that? Thankful for honest people.

a huge stroke of luck  :thumbsup1:

just me- that's just another reason why modern folks shouldn't
carry their cell phones around as if it were a baby.
if mine gets gone, i can spend another $19.95 at dollar general
and be back up and running.
since i don't keep any personal info or codes or anything on it,
i wouldn't be in such a tight to retrieve it.
(that's ^ ^ not a wise thing anyway^ ^ )
