I had hopped on the Crescent bus, as I often do, to go to work. I took my earbuds off, unplugged my iPod and set both down on the seat beside me, as I had run into a friend and we had started talking.
When I got to work, I had the ear buds but no iPod. Ugh. I realized I must have left it on the bus.
I thought it was gone forever, but I called Winnipeg Transit the next morning and they had it. Someone turned it in after finding it on the bus.
What a relief.
A very big "thank you" to the Crescent bus rider who handed it in. You are "good people."
My kids told me I would never see it again, as someone likely slipped it into their own pocket. I will be very happy to tell them at dinner, "No, there are good people out there, ready, willing and able to do the right thing."
