(By the way, I just saw the gold on the side of the road thing… I was going to post this)
This morning I was walking the dog on a road with very little foot traffic. At the side of the road I saw a gift card holder. I picked it up and it has two gift cards, worth about 75 dollars. It looks like these were not used and it’s damp and dirty, like it’s been on the side of the road for a few days.
There is a To and From on the card. It has only first names. It’s to a female and from a male and female. The names are neither common or rare.
I’m an honest person and would like to find the owner and give it to them.
Plan A. I did a search for the two “from” names that the cards and the city where I live (about 20,000). I found a baby registry with the two names as parents. I think the odds of two couples with the same names would be unlikely. I searched for each name, and the city and found a facebook page for the female. Based on the picture she could be pregnant and could have a baby registry. I sent a message with some information. If she responds with enough to identify that it’s hers (like what cards and how much) I will give them to her.
But, I’m not sure on Plan B. My road is about a mile long out in the country. There isn’t a lot of traffic. About half of the traffic is someone that lives on the road. Maybe somebody on the street knows who it would be, but I don’t know most people on the street.
