Treasure hunting
« on: July 07, 2019, 10:46:40 AM »
Found a purse in the car this morning I have an idea of who might own it its either one or the other ,I know where I dropped both of them but dont know the exact house .Should I go door to door looking for them ,there is absolutely no ID in the purse .

Leave it in your glove box for a year and a day and if you don't come across the owners in the meantime then treat yourself. Don't give it to the Garda if there is no id, you would have a better chance of spotting them because you saw them, but to be sure ask them to describe it to be 100% sure, good luck.

both possibilities are in Walkinstown one of them is another driver so Ill spin over .I try to return everything I find to its owner .They paid me to get them home that includes their property .I once returned a Mc Book had to drop it into the Carrage office got a reciept .That reciept has gotten me out of a few scrapes with the Gards .I keep it with my licence and hand it all over when asked for my licence ,they see the reciept and must think this fella is honest enough and give me the benifit .

Pensioner female taxi driver maybe, or even one of Leo’s lot.
Fair play trying to return it though

"Is this your purse with 50 euro in it?"
"Why, yes it is"

Did you have to go to the second house?  Asking for a cynic lol
