“I was Worried about All of the Things I Would have to Do to Protect Myself from Whoever Might Find My Wallet”

In early 2014, Dennis “Moe” Petty and his wife, Kathy, were vacationing in Florida when Kathy found a wallet at Crabby Joes restaurant in Daytona Beach. Joanne Zimmermann had lost the wallet there and was worried about the negative consequences that could follow if the wrong person found it. She said, “I was worried about all of the things I would have to do to protect myself from whoever might find my wallet.” She need not have worried. The Pettys, who are from Carmel, Indiana, returned the wallet, which contained $100, to her. Moe said, “We found a wallet and made a new friend. I am glad we were able to find the owner and return it to her instead of what you normally hear about. Even though we were only in Daytona for the day, there was no question we would make an effort find the owner of the wallet.” Ms. Zimmerman, a 45-year resident of Florida, said, “They were so nice, and I was so happy to get my wallet back. I wanted to say thank you [by contacting the newspaper Current in Carmel] since they would not accept a reward.”
