FOUND by Ara Lucia on McLean Avenue and Damen Avenue, Chicago, Illinois
This sign was posted by the loading zone adjacent to the My Pie Pizzeria in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood. I assumed the area was designated for use by the restaurant’s delivery drivers. A BMW was present when I found this.
I was walking down the street with my children, when my daughter (age 12) noticed a red envelope tucked into the side of a bench on the edge of the sidewalk. She pulled it out and showed it to me. On the envelope, it said “This is for you. Yes you!” We opened it up and this letter is what we found inside.
I’ve been wavering between sadness and awe. The sadness comes from the loneliness expressed in the letter. I get the sense that this woman (and I’m guessing it’s a woman) could use a friend and warm hug. At the same time, how amazing to share a letter like this. I absolutely intend to pay it forward: not in exactly the same way, but with the same belief in human connectedness.
FOUND by Maryam in SOMA, San Francisco, California
This person already made the reservation at Karachi, the Pakistani restaurant in the Tenderloin. He is still planning on picking up some weed and getting netflix for later. Oh– s/he also needs that Coco Butter and to call the uncle and more!! :)
After shopping, my wife came back to the car and found this note on her windshield. My wife is very conscientious as a rule. She doesn’t remember parking too close to the car next to her and she knows she definitely did not “door ding” anyone.
It just goes to show you, no matter how careful you are, make extra sure to have so curdosy for other people!
