What could have been a really, really sucky experience

Absentmindedly left my ATM card in the Bank of America machine while staying in downtown Seattle this week. I didn't even realize it until the next evening when I pulled out my wallet to pay for dinner and noted it missing. After I returned to my hotel room, I phoned Bank of America customer service hotline, and after anxiously sitting on hold for a while, they informed me that someone had reported it already and the account was blocked. Whew, a good deed indeed.

Whoever you are, finder and reporter remedying my bout of carelessness, thank you for your kind act. If I knew your identity, I'd gleefully buy you a beer or lunch or dinner.

Maybe you've posted an account of your act on a web page somewhere. But probably not. Anyway, thank you again!
