During this busy season we all witness sadness, stress, road rage and even shopping rage! I wanted to take just a minute to share a big Thank You to the person responsible for a very good deed late last Friday afternoon. While we so often hear all the negatives, sometimes the positives are lost in this busy world of today.
A Seafarer reached out to me and was desperate to find a wallet he lost on HRM transit bus 52 late last Friday. Having made several attempts to contact the offices of HRM Transit offices Friday night and Saturday, it was obvious I would not hear back until Monday morning.
I was delighted to hear direct from HRM Transit early Monday that the wallet had been turned into lost and found. Having picked up the Wallet we found that the cash, credit cards, vital personal identification was all intact. On behalf of the Seafarer, and our management and staff, We extend a HUGE THANK YOU to the kind hearted soul/s who are responsible for the safe return of the wallet.
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
