Thank You!

This is just a thank you to whomever turned in my license/id holder to Palos Verdes PD. I went riding through PV today and got home and was digging through my back pockets looking for it and couldn't find it. I had my license, registration, proof of insurance, and house key tucked in it. I couldn't get in the house so had to wait for my parents to get back home. I did about 40 miles through PV and it wasn't worth my time trying to drive around looking for a needle in a haystack. So about an hour after getting home PVPD calls my house and says that someone turned it in! Awesome!

That saved me god knows how much time not having to go to the DMV and waiting in that hell hole to get a replacement license. So thank you to whomever turned it in! I asked them who turned it in because I would have probably offered to buy them a drink or coffee or a gift certificate to Starbucks. But they told me the person never gave their name just dropped it off.

Same thing happened to me in Michigan 12 years ago. At the time it was critical that I have my license & credit cards & stuff because I was just about to move and getting that stuff replaced before I left would have been difficult if not impossible. There are a few good people left.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
