On our recent vacation, my husband left his iPad in the seat pocket on the plane in Charlotte, North Carolina. By the time he realized what he'd done, the plane was well on its way to Pittsburgh. We filed a report with the airlines, but they couldn't find it and we just assumed we were out of luck.
When we got home, Tom had an email from someone saying they had found it and asking us to contact them. I have to admit I was a little skeptical because it was from a hotmail address and I figured they were going to want a king's ransom to give it back.
Long story short, I responded, they asked where they should send it, I supplied an address and they sent another email this morning indicating it's on its way.
I replied to thank them and tell them we'd like to send something as appreciation for their honesty and trouble, and they replied back:
There is no need for anything. All I can wish for is that if I lost something someone would return it.
Score one for humanity!
