Day 66: Lost and Found
Whenever I check out of a hotel I always get the feeling that I am leaving something behind even though I look through the room numerous times before leaving. I just always think to myself that if I am leaving something behind, I just hope it isn't too important. My grandma recently checked out of a hotel and was a good ways away before realizing she had left her diamond ring in the room. I bet this was a pretty sinking feeling to have. Thankfully, when the got back to the hotel the ring was right where she left it.
Well today, for my act of kindness, when I was packing up my things I noticed a scarf on the chair that I hadn't noticed before. It was a nice 100% cashmere scarf and clearly was not mine. My guess is that is was left behind be the person who stayed in my room prior. I would be lying if I said that it never crossed my mind to just throw it in my bag but I knew that wouldn't be the right thing to do. So when I checked out, I dropped it off at the front desk to be sent back to the owner.
