About 15 years ago, when mobiles weren't as sophisticated/protected/traceable as they are today, my then flatmate found a very expensive phone which he knew to be popular in The City. We were in the last throes of our rebellious, anti-establishment twenties, so we were a bit surprised when he announced that he would try and track down the owner. When we asked why, he answered that whoever lost it was probably in some senior management position, might take out the loss of their phone on their subordinates, shop assistants, basically anyone they'd communicate with that day, making their day miserable as well and cause some negative domino effect. By returning the phone, he hoped to achieve the opposite. I always thought that was such a brilliantly positive way of thinking that I still try and apply it whenever I can.

Life is hard enough these days even if you don't have unhelpful mishaps and losing money really isn't very nice. There's enough "legitimate" things trying to part us all with our cash without something like this happening so I'm hoping the person comes forward and I can re-unite them with their cash. Apprecitae all the kind thoughts.
