In June 2015, Andy Evans (45 years old), living in Wythenshawe, Manchester City (England), returned home after seeing the performance of “The Courtearies” at Heaton Park. Like many cases of forgetting things in a taxi, after getting off the bus, Andy forgot his wallet containing his bank cards, driver’s license and £134 in cash.
Father-of-two Andy only remembers that the taxi he took was a black minibus. He got into the car outside a park in the north of Manchester and didn’t notice which company it belonged to. So he has no way of contacting the driver.
Andy figured he’d never get his wallet back when he realized it wasn’t in his jeans pocket as soon as he got out of the taxi.
After a long time, recently, Andy suddenly received a parcel. When he opened it, he was completely shocked to realize it was his wallet – everything intact as it was when he dropped it 7 years ago.
The Henri Lloyd brown wallet was completely undisturbed and still had the cash inside with the folded bills as when Andy had put them in. However, they are so old that some coins are no longer in circulation.
In the wallet there are two old-fashioned £20 bills that can still be used, but Andy will have to bring some old bills to the bank to exchange. Andy’s bank card expired 5 years ago.
“It was an unbelievable story,” Andy said. “At first, I was really confused because I don’t even remember ever owning the wallet. Then, when I looked closely at it, I started to panic. I couldn’t believe it. I muttered in my mind. saying: ‘This can’t be’ 7 years!? No one believed me when I told it. I texted my brother right away when I got my wallet back. He was the one who lent me the money. that night so I could continue partying. He remembered and was as shocked as I was.”
The email address of the sender is listed on the parcel. Andy wrote an email to thank and received a reply that the wallet had been “found in an old taxi”.
The message was signed simply “Manchester Taxi Driver” and said: “Seven years… Well. The wallet was found in an old taxi and looks intact. I hope everything is in place. That’s it. Go to the bank to exchange for new money and enjoy the best.”
Andy emailed the driver offering to send him some diesel to thank him for the kindness. The man confirmed he was still a taxi driver, and said: “Honestly, I didn’t return it to get a reward from you, your gift offer brought a smile of cheer. on my face”.
Andy said: “I asked him to meet him to thank him and have coffee. I just wanted to shake his hand and say thank you. It took him £8 to send me the parcel. Anyways. anyway, the wallet coming back with all the money and papers is really a great thing.”
