Every once in a while you meet people who become a constant reminder that there is AWESOMENESS in this world.
I was out biking with my friend this past weekend and for whatever reason we miscommunicated with one another about what we had packed, long story short…
He: Put his wallet and cell phone in a velcro pouch at the back of my bike with good intention that this would get us some drinks at our destination point.
I: had no idea there was a wallet or cell phone on the back of my bike. Before the ride I had confirmed with him that I put all of his belongings (wallet, keys, phone, etc.) in storage back at the house, this was only half true since the other half of his things was with me & my bike.
We: had an amazing few hours biking along the country side. Lots of bumpy windy gravel roads on our route. Lots of opportunity to lose a wallet or phone. We arrive back at the house super eager to grab some water when my sister comes out to say hi to us, commenting on the prank that we had just pulled while out biking.
We had no clue what she was talking about.
She pulls up her Instagram and shows us my friend’s feed. Someone had posted on his behalf via his Instagram account, from his phone.
Here is a clip from Good Morning America showing the video that they posted…
These kids are brilliant. Pure awesome. We called his number immediately & they answered the phone! They told us they were at the Skate Park so we biked over and there was his phone waiting for us. No harm done to the phone, they just wanted to give it back to its rightful owner! They could have sold the phone, made some good coin and continued skating, but they didn’t. Instead they took a few goofy pictures and filmed this sweet video.
I have to commend them on their creativity, their playfulness, and their honest nature- totally feeling inspired today about all the good folks in this world. All smiles.
