No good deed goes unpunished

Post by Geekophile on Sun Aug 07, 2011 5:05 pm

On his way to work this morning my husband (who rides a motorcycle) noticed a purse in the road. He stopped and threw it in his backpack. It still had a bunch of cash in it, an iphone, creditcards etc. The phone was dead, so there was no # to call, but there was a paystub with an address. He calls me from work to say he will be late so he can try to get this lady back her purse. And he was late all right... When he got in touch with the woman she didn't even have a clue that she'd lost it! She was happy needless to say and tried to give him $5 which he refused- the good deed being its own reward and all. So he leaves her house and starts heading home and *blam* lays down his bike in a corner! He is fine. Dirty and bruised a bit, but fine. And now he's gonna have to listen to me rag on him for a week. So much for Karma, right?

Karma is a fickle woman.
That is awesome that he went out of his way to do that.

I once left my tiny wallet on top of my car and drove away, near where I lived. My parents had recently divorced and at that time I had moved to a pretty transient (read: not nice) neighborhood and though I didn't have a lot of cash in there, it contained all of my identification.
I was SHOCKED and impressed to near tears when a local teenage boy returned it, with not one penny removed.
That kind of stuff... sticks with you.

So good job husband!

Sucks that Karma was busy washing her hair that day though.

Yeah, he is kinda great. I think I'll go tell him that. (I don't say it nearly as often as I should) then I'm gonna go back to picking on him!

ok maybe I'm morbid but having been in a big bike wreck a few years ago and spending months in bed my first thought was maybe Karma let him get away with just a few bruises? - compared to the alternative that's a good day!

How sweet is he! I love that there are still people like that in the world! I just wish there were more of them. At my office, people always steal lunches out of the fridge, and the other day, someone had the cash stolen out of their purse when they went to the restroom! Kudos to your husband for being a nice guy. Maybe Karma will come back to him sometime later. . . kind of make it a surprise Smile

Karma is sneaky Shocked Got to hold it by the tail sometimes Razz
I made my hubby sell his bike, on his CL post he mainly ranted about me making him sell it lol! But as long as he posted a price and the bike was GONE a few days later, I was happy.
Your husband is a good man returning the purse! I wish the stuff I lost during the years would have been found by such a person... Never been that lucky

I agree with Rianna, I think maybe karma was taking care of him! Positive!! Being positive about things that happen help more happen! I mean that it could of been much much worse! But it wasn't, I am glad he came out of it with only bruises!! I know I was at home depot yesterday and paid for something at one of those self checkout things... it gave me $10 too much, I could of kept it real easily, but I didn't I let the people know... they were happy... I am hoping that now karma is nice to me... Smile

NAh, it was just him being dumb. There was a curve that was really sharp (not many of those in Fl! and he was on an unfamilliar rural road) and he went into some loose sand. So the bike is fine and so is he because it all hit soft ground at a low speed. God forbid that anything truly bad ever happen, but honestly that's the risk you take just breating! I won't ever make him give up his mid-life crisis mobile. It makes him happy to ride to work everyday- and that is really something these days.

I thought the same thing, Riana. Or perhaps Karma for this wasn't instant.

That's a good man, and a very lucky woman (both you and the one who got her purse back). Smile
