I lost my card on the bus, and a passenger contacted me on LinkedIn!
At 11am today, I dropped my Leap Card in the bus.
At noon, I checked my LinkedIn, and had received a new message, “Hi Shreya, just found your Leap Card on the 15B bus…”
The very kind John Madden had found my Leap Card and given it to the bus driver. John later found me on LinkedIn and dropped me a message.
He added that I could tweet @dublinbusnews for help, and that’s exactly what I did.
And now, at 1pm, I have my Leap Card back with me!
Shoutout to the wonderful John, who helped me out today.
In case you find lost items, please do make an effort to trace the owner and return it. There are some things which are very difficult to replace.
P.S. Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.
