Debra Crosby lost her wallet at the Walmart in River City in North Jacksonville when she realized she lot her wallet when she was checking out when she was about to check out. Crosby had some cash and was still able to pay for her items. She started to think about how she would replace all the things in her wallet.
“I’m going to have to replace my military ID, my driver’s license,” Crosby told First Coast News. “I am going to have to take off work because they are not open during hours when I get off.”
Then the doorbell rang at Crosby’s home Saturday night, and a welcoming delivery was waiting.
“Hey, how are you doing? I found your wallet at Walmart,” said the unidentified man on her home security system. At the time, Crosby was driving home.
Crosby says the man was her guardian angel.
“I’m like, ‘My God. This person went out of his way,’” Crosby said. “I get there and the wallet and along with the credit cards and everything are there.”
The man said he was returning her wallet and its about a 20 minute drive from the Walmart to Crosby’s home. She’s thankful he returned her wallet.
“Hey Ms. Crosby, I found your wallet at Walmart in River City,” the man said on the front door surveillance recording. . “I’m going to put it by the Amazon boxes.”
“He brought it personally to my house, concealed it, gave me a message of where he found it, and I thought that was a lot of above and beyond,” Crosby explained.
Crosby who’s a science teacher now wants to use this experience in a lesson plan in kindness, an element of generosity no textbook can teach.
