Good...well, not exactly Samaritans

I think it's exciting when you get to do something nice for somebody you don't know at all. This isn't to say that we go around being huge jerks, but you get what I mean. Anyway, tonight we went to Meijer to buy sheet protectors and erasable pens so I can make a project and so Jack can park for free. We looked at some chairs, found the last 50-pack of sheet protectors, and left. About twenty feet past the sidewalk, I kicked at something that looked like a keyless entry remote.

Jack, of course, picked it up, and it was a keyless entry remote! He immediately noticed that it looked like Oen's, which isn't saying much since Ford probably made a bazillion keyless entry remotes that look exactly the same. "Push the button and see if it goes off," I said. "I'm going to push it," said Jack. "Okay," I said. So he pushed the panic button, and a car alarm went off. "No way!" said Jack. He pushed the button that made the car alarm stop. It stopped. He pushed the lock button. It beeped. "No way," he said again. "Yes way," I said, and we went up to the car.

We debated for a minute about the best place to leave the remote, put it on the driver's side mirror, and went back to the car. Except, on the way back, I started thinking about all the thieves that are probably lurking around the parking lot at Meijer and how some suspicious people had probably watched us leave the remote on the mirror and how I would have an absolute heart attack if my remote was left on my mirror, and long story short, we took it into Meijer and gave it to the customer service desk. They got to page the owner of the car, who probably thought his or her car was the victim of a hit-and-run incident. Good deed of the day, accomplished.
