|As the bus pulled away, a woman realized she
had left her purse under the seat. Later she called the company and was
relieved to find out the driver had found it. When she went to pick it
up, several off-duty bus drivers greeted her.
One of the men handed over her handbag and a box. "We're required to inventory found wallets and purses," he explained. "I think you'll find everything here."
As she started to put her belongings back into the purse, the man continued, "I hope you don't mind if we watch. Even though we all tried, none of us could fit everything into your purse... and we'd like to see just HOW you do it."
