It really was.
A while ago, after putting my car into the garage in another town for repairs, I was going back to collect it and used my bus pass to get the two buses there. I had hardly had my pass for any length of time and it was a real novelty to me. Free travel! I got off the bus and walked towards the garage. All of a sudden I wondered if I had put my bus pass back in my purse as I couldn't remember doing so. I checked purse and pockets and there was no pass there. I could have kicked myself! I knew I'd need to have new photographs taken and it would just be a nuisance to get it renewed. I got home that evening and was sitting, when I received a text. It was a number I did not recognise and it said "hello, are you the person who lost your bus pass?" I was puzzled as I just could not begin to imagine who it was. They then replied "I have it. I found it at the bus stop earlier." I asked if I could pick it up the following morning and they said "Yes, of course, I am in the offices at Unit 1, blah blah blah." I then said that I had to ask them how on earth they knew it was mines, as it has no phone number or address details on it. He said "I put your name into the net and came up with the Ramblers, found your name against a walk and it also had your mobile number, hence why I sent you the text." I couldn't believe it! I went with my partner the next morning to pick it up, with a box of choccies, and met this lovely young guy who found my card. It was so kind of him to try and find me. He saved me such a lot of hassle.
A reason why the internet can be a good thing.
