A New York woman who lost her wallet during a trip to the store had it returned with all of its contents by a courteous UPS driver who went above and beyond the call of duty.
Beth Cefalu of Eltingville, Staten Island, said she apparently lost her wallet while on her way to a store. She had hoped to come across it somewhere in her apartment; but was about to give up the search when a phone call brought her the relief we all feel when something important is found.
“My boyfriend called and said a UPS driver delivered my wallet,” she told the Staten Island Advance. This is made more remarkable by the fact that Cefalu had recently moved and had not yet updated her ID in her wallet to reflect that.
The driver was still on her block when she arrived home, allowing her to thank him in person. That driver, Mike Arcaro, told her he had found the wallet near her home and took it to the local UPS headquarters. Arcaro suspected the address on Cefalu’s ID, which was listed as a town in upstate New York, might be out of date, so he used the UPS system to find her current address and deliver the wallet to the correct home.
“Its a good thing he didn’t mail it to the old address,” Cefalu said in a Facebook post. “It would have been forwarded to my current but still it would have been missing for a week! By then I would have canceled everything.”
An incredibly courteous move by Mr. Arcaro, and a good bit of luck for Ms. Cefalu that it was someone kind who found her missing wallet.
