A Real Life Hero

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Okay, so I'm reaching down this morning to get my billfold to give Rob Klassen some money for lunch and yes, you guessed it, my wallet is gone.  Last time I had it was at McDonald's on Gunbarrel at lunch yesterday. 

I went to work, not there, go home, again not there, take Robby some lunch money, no one at the school has seen it.  Yesterday I went to McDonald's on Gunbarrel Road to get lunch and dropped it in the parking lot.  I called this morning for hours the line was busy, then I finally get a lady on the phone and they have it.    

I got there to find out that Robert, a sweet maintenance man, found it right after I dropped it and nothing was missing. I was in tears as was he.  I went to get him a Visa gift card to show how I appreciated his kindness.  

I couldn't believe people like him still existed.  Please pray for this man, his name is Robert and if you go to the McDonald's on Gunbarrel please tell him thank you too.

I contacted the corporate McDonald's and they assured me they too would be contacting the franchisee and they would also contact Robert and his manager and I just want to make sure people knew that there are really true heroes.
