Okay, first of all, we’re officially Idaho homeowners! Yay! So we like it here. A LOT. Hearing all these guys talk about how they never lock their doors. Seeing classic cars with the windows rolled down parked outside restaurants and all, you get the feeling there’s not much crime. Everyone is really nice even after they learn where we’re from.
But to top it off, there was what happened today. We are going to spend our first night in the house tonight, so we needed a few things. Nothing in Bonner’s Ferry, so we had to go all the way into Sandpoint to the Walmart. So we go, and I go in to get some necessities, and in the whole process I left my wallet in the cart. I didn’t know it though for several hours. We had gone back to the house and spent the whole afternoon with the previous homeowner going over stuff and walking the property. So we get ready to go to dinner and I realize I don’t have my wallet. Finally realized I had left it at Walmart. So I call them and sure enough, it’s there. But I’m thinking, great, the wallet is there but no way the money is still there. It had about $1500 in it. But we got there and the wallet and all the money, credit cards, everything was in it. I tried to get the name and contact information for the person that turned it in so I could reward them. Turned out it was an employee and they can’t take rewards. They wouldn’t even tell me their name.
If this was California, I’d be up all night cancelling credit cards.
