Over the weekend, I was furious because I was convinced my wallet had been stolen by the Black Undertow while I was working out in the gym.
It turns out that I had set it on top of my SUV while getting gas and it had blown off when I absentmindedly got back on the road. It was gone at that point. It was a lost cause with no hope of recovery.
Today, I got a message from someone who had found my wallet: a White man on his way back from church who stopped in the middle of the road to get my wallet which was tumbling through traffic.
After making several failed inquires to various people he knows who live in my area, he finally found me on Facebook. Now I get my wallet back which contains all my personal information including various items which would be difficult for me to replace.
This is actually the second time that I have lost my wallet and a stranger has tracked me down and returned it. Both strangers were White Southerners and sympathized with my plight enough to save me from misfortune.
If I had lost my wallet in a place like New York City or Los Angeles, would someone have returned it?
