I found a wallet and some money lying in a puddle this morning; from their location I suspect they were dropped by a cyclist.

If it was yours, PM me your name and I'll arrange to return it to you...

  • Really weren't very many of us riding down there this morning were there! Good luck trying to get it back to the person- with the weather this bad you can't blame someone for being a bit distracted and not noticing it dropping out of a pocket.

    is there no cards/ driving license inside said wallet

    or pictures of fit wife?

    Yeah, I know the owner's name. The only address (on the driving licence) is quite a long way from London (looks like a parents address), and I should imagine he would rather take delivery in person if possible. If no-one responds I'll either try directory enquiries to get a phone number for the non-London address, or post it there.

    No pictures of fit wife, but credit to the owner for being equipped for a romantic liaison :-)

    They must have a facebook/twitter account. Tried those?

    how did he have a butt plug in his wallet?

    is said wallet like Mary Poppins bag or something?

    This is harder than I thought. Home phone number is ex-directory, so I can post the wallet there as a last resort but not call anyone up. Facebook/Twitter have too many people with the same name, can't find him on LinkedIn.

    I've a hunch he may work at JP Morgan. Anyone at JPM willing to see if he's in your corporate directory, and drop him a mail if he is? If so, pse PM me and I'll give you his name.

    Could phone JPM and ask? I'm sure if you say you found his wallet they'll put you through

    Switchie or a bloomberg terminal will solve that one for you very quickly.

    So he likes to f*** strangers but doesn't want to have to pay for it later?

    Outside the rarified circles that you move in, not everyone is on BBG (and yes, I did look!)

    Think I've found my man now, thanks Rebs!

    Didn't they invent roundabouts in Yeovil? Either that, or a town planner had a roundabout fetish.

    Possibly; I think it's one of the few towns on the intersection of two main roads without a bypass.
    However, I do know that every time one of the Northants town planners put a coffee mug down, Milton Keynes got another roundabout.

    Try the Egg in Tamworth. It used to be one HUGE (1/2 mile across) roundabout. Now it's a roundabout of roundabouts...

    I always liked the Magic Roundabout in Swindon, and was very excited to find a similar one in Hemel Hempsted recently.

    OT: Wallet is now back with its owner, many thanks to those who assisted :-)

    And no, Mr 66, I didn't...

    The rest of Tamworth has far more than it's fair share of roundabouts too. There's barely a junction in the whole town that isn't a roundabout.

    I hope you were offered some compensation. When mine was returned I gave the guy £20 for his trouble. It saved me a load of hassle and loosing something with sentimental value.

    I wasn't offered a reward, but TBH I didn't expect one; very satisfying to be able to return it to its owner.

    I seem to be turning into a lost property service. I was out drinking with a bunch of friends last night, and ended up taking home a friend's iPad after he spilt beer all over it and then went "home"* without it. Got a call from him this morning; he'd interrogated it remotely and discovered it was in my house before I even had a chance to tell him. Very impressed!

    [*]Due to an alcohol-assisted train error he actually spent the night in a Basingstoke shopping centre :lol:
