Reader Avi H. thought his wallet was lost forever, but sometimes the universe gives you a break, even when it’s on Muni. Here’s Avi’s story.
About three years ago, I was on the 66 heading inbound to go to school. When I left the bus, my wallet had fallen out of my hoody-jacket’s pocket and onto the seat. I got off the bus to wait for the 48 and started digging in my pockets to find the transfer. Unfortunately my wallet wasn’t there! I began panicking. I knew the likely story is that my wallet will never be returned. I called Muni Lost and Found, talked to other riders waiting at the bus stop, and even tried running after the bus.
(Side note: I am used to living in places where people do not return things, and thefts are of a daily occurrence.)
