Thank You! You made my day.

Original post made by tango, Vineyard Avenue, on Aug 17, 2011

I just want to take time to thank the person who found my I Pad outside Tullys last Tues. night. I was helping a friend into the car and had forgotten to pick up my I Pad. I had left it on an outside table near the street. Realized that I didn't have it when I got home. In a panic I rushed back to Tullys , no I Pad and Tullys was closed. Went to Police Department and made a report. I didn't know that an I Pad has a registration number,did you? The police said I would have to give them the regs. no. If I was to get it back. Went home devastated. Went to Tullys this morning, and some wonderful person had picked it up and had them hold it for me. Oh what a relief. There are some wonderful people in this town. Thank you again.

One thing I love about Pleasanton is the wonderful acts of goodness like yours. I've had it happen to me and it does make one's day. Congratulations to both of you ... one for the person who found you iPAD and two to you for acknowledging it.

I love hearing these kinds of stories, especially in this day and age. I agree Pleasanton does have great citizens and responsible people. This is one reason why I love living in this town.

Kudos to the person who turned in, and I hope you are reciprocated in kind with an offer of reward. If I had found that device and was offered the reward I would not take it, as doing the right thing is the reward in itself. Congratulations to an honest citizen.

Look for Random Acts of Kindness opportunities and pass it forward.

Great story. The same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I left my purse on the chairs outside of Tully's. When I realized it I went back and everything was closed. I was getting on a plane the next morning early. When I arrived I called Tully's and they did not have it. Then I called High Tech and they had it in their safe. What a wonderful person to turn that in for me!

Yes, Gina I know your pain and gratitude. Isn't it wonderful to find such great people in this community? There was nothing said about who turned in my i Pad. I might have treated them to a coffee. To late now don't e-mail now and say that you are that person. I always try to find a way to pass on a good deed..
