Man Loses His Wallet in Switzerland, Gets It Back Completely Untouched 10 Years Later
Good things come to those who wait. Sometimes you just have to wait about a decade.
The wallet not only held his ID, documentation, credit cards and some cash, it also had a rare, blue 20 franc note that was no longer in circulation. Marku told 20 Minutes that he had the old banknote since he immigrated to Switzerland from Kosovo in 1989, and it was a special keepsake from his old life.
Marku and his coworkers looked for the wallet but couldn't found it, and eventually they gave up. It seemed the wallet was gone forever.
Until, that is, a few days ago — when it turned up again at the very same site he lost it, where a postal service now stands.
An employee at the post office apparently had found the wallet, and when Marku picked it up, expecting it to be empty, he found it still contained 500 francs in cash and his rare blue bill.
He told 20 Minutes that he was glad that the Swiss are “really honest people.”
Looks like some people are racking up a lot of good karma.
