‘Thanks, West Seattle, for your continued sense of community’

While this is the type of note that most often lands in the WSB Forums as a “Rave,” it turned up in the WSB e-mailbox instead, and we’re up for some heartening news – so, here’s what Molly reported:

We just wanted to pass along a little holiday cheer that we just encountered in West Seattle (Sunday). We accidentally left a package near Talarico’s, where a good Samaritan found it and drove it to our house in the event that we’d accidentally left behind a holiday present. While the package was empty (the contents were at N.W. Art and Frame), it had contained a print of a painting we’d seen on our honeymoon this summer. My husband, who is a little cynical about the holiday season, was struck by this woman’s kindness and thoughtfulness in driving the package all the way to our house, had it contained a gift. Thanks, West Seattle, for your continued sense of community that truly embodies the spirit of the holidays!

    Also, don’t litter around the junction or we’ll find you. That’s the message here.

    Jason, exactly how does “accidentally left” translate “littering” for you?

    JanS: That was clearly a joke on his part…

    Yes I was just goofing, it was really nice of the person that drove the empty package back to the litterbugs’ house though. There are some really kind people around here!

    HAHAHAA @ Jason. I got it. Don’t mess with W-Sea.

    Kudos to the Good Samaritan!

      I thought it was cool too. People DO accidentally leave things behind, even if they were destined for recycling, trash, whatever. And by the way, if anyone has seen a Verizon Mi-Fi device at a venue that held a public meeting sometime in October or November … we lost one. Believe me, it wasn’t litter!

    Thank you good Samaritan for showing there is still good souls out there and thank you WSB for sharing a positive story!! I would love to hear more of them :)

    Good people do good things! Nice.

    One of the big reasons I’ve made West Seattle my home for almost 39 years is the people. We do have a great community, and great people. :)

    Just so I know you were joking, Jason ;-)

    That’s cool

Sorry, comment time is over.
