Last week, we went to watch Vivid like every year. It is one of the best shows Sydney puts on apart from the New Year fireworks. I loved Vivid this year as there was line-up of amazing lights in even more places.
My favourite was the animated canvas on Opera house inspired by Aboriginal arts. It was so nice that we stayed in front of it for a long time, admiring the view and taking some great photos.
Another one of my favourites was the Sydney’s Hidden Stories projection onto the Custom’s House. It was full of great characters like the lizard, snakes, cockatoos, gnomes and gumnut fairies and even a witch. Even though it was a cold evening, we loved the night out and Chhori was happy to run around.
On the way back to the train station, we found a phone on the middle of the road. It was an iphone6 and a car must have run over it. The screen was all smashed and we could not see anything.
The phone had a cover which had a student card with name and a photo. The first thing I could think of was to search for her name on Facebook just in case we could find her. We found a Facebook page with the same name but we were not sure if that was the same girl as the photo seemed a little different.
In that mean time, the phone started ringing but we couldn’t pick it as the screen was smashed and was not sensitive to touch. So I decided to leave a message on her Facebook just in case it was the same person.
The phone kept ringing and eventually died.
The next morning, I checked my Facebook for a response but there was none so I decided to call the university. Luckily when I talked to the lady there, there was only one student with that name. So I left a message for her to call me back and let her know that the phone is with me.
That afternoon she called me and was happy to know that I had her phone. Unfortunately I had to inform her that the phone was smashed and unusable. We arranged for her to pick the phone up from my friend’s office as that was closer to her.
The next day, she picked up the phone and I was happy that the phone was reunited with the owner even though it was battered. It is a good feeling when you know that you did the right thing. 🙂
And it was really nice of her to send me a pack of nice chocolates as a “Thank you.”
Do you have a similar story where someone has returned your lost item or you found the owner for a lost item that you found? Please do share.
Have a great day.
