“Our First Good Deed of 2016!
January 1st, 2016: Being the good samaritans we are, we actually got the opportunity to return the phone we found on the subway on NYE to its owner! ^-^
She called us early in the morning and sounded reaaaallly nervous when Ger picked up the phone. She asked where we lived, who we were and if she could have her phone back and as nice as Gerald was on the phone, she still sounded sketched out and got her dad to call us instead.
Her dad was the cutest little old man. He arranged a place to meet up and before he hung up he was like “oh, oh wait! Uhmm.. I’m wearing a, uh, blue pair of jeans with a, uh, black t-shirt with Adidas on it.” I actually lol-ed. Even Gerald thought it was adorable.
SO we quickly got dressed and we drove to the movie theatre near my house to meet up with her dad. He was this little old man, wearing what he described and he reminded me of the whole “old people are so cute!” obsession people seem to have.
He ended up giving us 25 dollars, even after we refused the money. We just wanted to give the phone back but it was nice to receive a little thank you token.
Later on, we headed back to my mom’s house and literally watched like 5 movies, half ignored them and just talked. It was probably one of the best conversations we have had in a loong time. We spoke about everything under the sun, about us, about the future, about random science stuff, etc. It was really, really nice.
Ger is one of those people that are easy to talk to and genuinely listen and participate in the conversation. ”
