Letter: Another example of trusting people

On Feb. 9, we arrived back from a weeklong vacation, flying to Fargo. I stopped down in the airport lobby to put my coat on and, in doing so, left my notepad on the seat of one of the snowmobiles on display in the lobby.

We live in Pelican Rapids, Minn., and got halfway home when I realized I did not have my notepad. I phoned the Avis agent to look around the lobby, but she would have had call me back, as she was with a customer. So, we turned around and went back to Hector. Once there, I looked around the snowmobiles and the lobby – no notepad. All the way back to Fargo, my husband kept saying, “only in Fargo will you ever get this back.”

I talked to a ticket agent, who then paged someone from lost and found. Sure enough, someone had turned it in. I have no idea who this honest person is but want to thank them a million. I commend their honesty and, once again, am so grateful that our area is made up of such trusting people.

We had flown in from Phoenix and feel certain it would have been gone had I left it anywhere in that city.
