You should say:
What it was
Who it belonged to
How the person lost it
How you found it
And how you felt about it
Though I’m used to misplacing my belongings every now and then, I have never really found something valuable lost by someone until recently when I found a lost wallet on the bus I was riding from school/work.
Well, a few weeks ago, I was commuting to school/work on public transport and while I was on the bus, I found a wallet that one passenger had misplaced. It was lying just below my seat. I immediately picked it up and asked another passenger who was sitting next to me but he responded that it wasn’t his wallet.
I decided to inspect the wallet closely and upon opening it, I found the person’s id and a few bank notes. I think it was about $ 50. I also found the person’s contact details and from the looks of it, he was a retiree. From my mobile phone I called the landline number that was on a piece of paper in the wallet and the elderly man answered. We made some instant arrangement to meet up and I handed over the wallet to him. He offered me the money that was inside the wallet but I turned down the offer.
I felt really delighted and gratified because I was able to return the lost item to the rightful owner who was full of thanks and appreciation for my effort. Though I was late returning home, I didn’t care much because my parents called me Good Samaritan when I recounted the story to them. This is something that was misplaced by someone and found by me.
