Washington, DC


Hero

Thanks to Katie for sharing:

“Warning: this is a POSITIVE “does anyone recognize this guy?” Doorbell camera post. Typically posted videos from Ring cameras are about package thefts, break ins, people juggling car doors on the street to see what’s open…and our neighborhood list serv is always littered with these this time of year. But this morning I saw an alert while I was as setting up my 6am class at Off Road DC – I clicked over and thought it was a little weird for a delivery that early, but figured maybe someone got my mail or whatever. Turns out: I was in a huge rush this am and didn’t zip my bag. My wallet fell out in the middle of the road. This guy was nice enough to stop his van, clearly checked the address on the ID and returned it under our mat. Anyone who lives in DC knows this is pretty much unheard of- you drop a wallet, you lose a wallet, and you usually lose everything in your accounts if you’re not quick, too. Counting my blessings today- im damn lucky. Random Dallas fan in the plaid with the white van: thank you. You’re what’s right in the world.
