    roadside assistance

    I got to do my good deed for the day. I was browsing the local trader group on Facebook and ran across someone wanting to buy a metal detector. I replied asking if they wanted an entry level machine or a high end detector. They replied something cheap to find her husband’s wedding ring and they were desperate to find it. I asked if he had a good idea where he lost it. Turns out he swatted at a bug while driving home from work at 2:00 am and his ring flew out the window. After talking to them I told them I would drive out and see if I could find it for them. After a 37 mile drive and 20 minutes detecting a roadside ditch I recovered his wedding ring. They offered to pay me. I told them no but they insisted. I said if it will make them feel better, put $10 worth of gas in my car. They refused to stop the pump and put $51 worth of 93 octane in my Dodge Challenger. It made me happy to see her cry and be overcome with emotion when I found it. I always love the challenge of recovering a lost wedding ring.
