This is a question Stuff I've found

Freddy Woo writes, "My non-prostitute-killing, lorry driving uncle once came home with a wedding cake. Found it in a layby, scoffed the lot over several weeks."

What's the best thing you've found?

A purse
Me and a group of friends were walking through wakefield on our dinner break,which constitutes 2 cigarettes n a sit down in the city centre, when out of my eye i spot a purse under the bench opposite to us, I casually strolled over and brough it back to our bench apon opening it i found 60 quid in cash and cards etc. (being a poor student 60 quid was like 2 weeks living costs). As i contemplated what to do with it all my friends were chanting "keep it keep it", the thought had crossed my mind as iv lost shit loads of stuff over the years and never got back, but being a good citizen i took the wallet to the local information centre, gave my name address etc, and never thought about it again. Untill 2 weeks later i got a letter with a hand sewn insignia on the top, it was from the woman whos purse id handed in, she said that she was a poor student with 2 children trying to better her self and the wallet had invaluable pictures and cards in it, enclosed in the back was a cheque for ten pounds. That perhaps was one of the best feelings iv had and still sticks with me now a few years later, iv still got the card and (un cashed) cheque in a draw somewhere. Keeps my faith in society alive.

...and I like the fact that the cheque is still uncashed.

Good on yer!

"a letter with a hand sewn insignia on the top"
I don't understand, was she a Baroness or something?
