i left my wallet in one of the public restrooms at the hotel i'm staying at at about 8:30 (i didn't know i had left it; bad habit i know). at 10:30 i got a call from the frontdesk. someone found it and turned it in. even as they were delivering it to my room, i didn't expect any of the cash nor credit cards to be there, but not a single item was missing!!!

You are a very lucky man. It's nice to see there are still honest people in the world.

You are lucky. It is nice to know that humanity hasn't all gone to crap yet. If you have a habit of leaving your wallet, have you thought about getting one of those clips that attatch your wallet to your pants using a long line? I see those pretty often when I am in public places.

That's pretty lucky man, losing your wallet can be a real pain.
I'm a chronic pocket checker, if something isn't there I feel out of place :lol:

Ooooooooo what a lucky man......................he waaaaaassss :)

Left mine in a cab once after a night a drinking. I called the cab company immediately after; they said nope, no wallet in cab. Few minutes later I realized I was talking to the wrong cab company :/

Didn't matter, the correct cab company said there was no wallet in the cab I just exited after getting off the phone with them :(

A week later I get a call from some nearby college asking if I lost my wallet, I said yes! I go to pick it up and my freaking checkbook was with it!!!!
How in the world did I manage that?! I DO NOT recall having my checkbook with me that night; I was out drinking for crying out loud.

They said someone found them on the sidewalk out in front a bowling alley, hmmm interesting.

Anyways I didn't leave any money in the wallet, so I got everything back. I bet the cabbie rifled through it and then threw it out the window, but who knows.

When I was a kid, maybe 13 or 14 someone bumped me and took my wallet. There was like 50 bucks in it and some ID and a credit card. Nothing major, just annoying. 2 years later I got the wallet back in the mail. Apparently it was common for the thieves to take a wallet, pull the cash and then throw it down this elevator shaft. So every couple years they cleaned out the elevator and mailed everyone their wallets back.

Same here, I have wallet OCD. I make sure I have it when I'm leaving the house, I make sure I have it whenever I walk into anywhere that sells anything. When I go to the grocery store I always panic when I'm waiting in line and check and make sure I have my wallet. It nice to wear Docker type pants with the button above the back pocket to ensure it didn't fall out.

That is one of the best side mini-missions I have ever seen with any game. It is a part of what makes ME2 such a great game. BTW, that title is wrong as that isn't Tali as it is another quarian.

It means bringing Tali with you as a companion when you do it.
