“Thank You, Harbor Freight Tools Store #58”

Over the Labor Day weekend in 2014, Dick Rice lost his wallet while flying in the Hearts A’Fire hot air balloon event in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Of course, he thought that he would never see it again. He was wrong. His wallet landed on the roof of Harbor Freight Tools, and an employee mailed the wallet back to Mr. Rice, along with this note: “Dear Sir, while doing maintenance on our AC we found your wallet on our roof. I do hope the address on your ID is current. We must say in our store we have never found a wallet on our roof before and can only assume you were here for the hot air balloon event. Your friends, Harbor Freight Tools Store #58.” Mr. Rice said his wallet was returned with all its contents intact: credit cards, $80 in cash, airman certificate, driver’s license, and insurance IDs. Mr. Rice wrote on Facebook, “I am so impressed I thought everybody should know about these terrific folks at Harbor Freight. They didn’t have to do that, but they did. In this era of entitlement and world turmoil, these folks took the time and spent a couple bucks to make someone else’s life better. Thank you, Harbor Freight Store #58.”
