No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
I was leaving CVS to get into my car and as I looked up to put the key in I noticed the car in parked in front of mine meter had expired. I had a quarter in a compartment of my car so I got out and put it into meter of whoever's car. I swear the meter maids in this town hide behind buildings waiting for some unsuspecting soul to forget to fill the meter. After I put the coin in I had a bad feeling and thought to myself, "No good deed goes unpunished." I usually don't mention I do little acts of kindness, because I don't need to prove anything to anyone. My thoughts were soon distracted by my hungry stomach and drove to a subshop up the street. As I looked into my pocketbook to pay for my salad, I realized my wallet wasn't there. I ran to my car and looked under the seats and all about the car. It wasn't there. I jumped into my car and pulled an illegal u-turn and started back to CVS. I was upset about my wallet, but what scared me most is I had a script for pain medication in my wallet, and the worst scenerio is that it could get into some kid's hands and he could OD. As I came to the light ahead I decided to pull into the left turn only lane to get ahead of the elderly driver who was ahead of me. As I did that, a car came to a screaching halt as I unknowingly cut the driver off. I looked at the family in the car I noticed they were shocked because it was only a few inches before they slammed into my car. There was a young girl in the car who looked so frightened I felt awful and called out my apologies. The light turned red and I pushed hard on the gas peddle and went straight......blue lights flashing,,,"License and registration please." I was freaking out at this point and I sputtered to the officer, "I don't have my wallet, I left it at CVS and it has a script for pain medication in it and some kid could find it...please, can I get in your car and you can drive me and we'll do this later!" He looked at my bags from CVS and he asked for my registration and I pulled on the glovebox, but it was stuck shut! He took my information verbally and told me that the car that I cut off was speeding and if it hit me, it would have been very serious. I thanked him for stopping me and he let me go. I drove to CVS and I had at least 5 people searching the store for my wallet and we could not find it. I left the store and headed home with a hope that just maybe CVS would be calling me after finding my wallet. I was a home and on a whim I checked my mailbox. It was there!!! Everyone was safe!!...the people I cut off, me, and the kid who may have OD'd! My good deed had gone unpunished!!!!!
