Pay it forward: Chon Buri mum returns lost thousands after getting her own lost hundreds back

By The Nation

 

A Chon Buri woman who relocated hundreds of baht she’d lost earlier in the day came across a wallet full of money belonging to someone else that same evening and was able to return it to the owner, happy to do a good deed in gratitude for her own good fortune.
 

The lucky day culminated at 10pm at Samed police station in Mueang Chon Buri, where Kewalin Meethsa, 27, and her three-year-old daughter Piyathida Klaisuriwong presented Sirirak Chaikasemnaphaporn, 41, with her missing wallet containing Bt12,670.

 

Sirirak peeled off Bt3,000 and gave it to the little girl as a reward.

 

Kewalin had spotted the wallet while driving her motorcycle through Rim Thale, a village in Tambon Samed, and told her daughter to pick it up.

 

The owner’s ID card was inside, along with the cash.

 

Kewalin said she was delighted to have a chance to do a good deed because she’d lost her own wallet that same morning and found it again soon after. 

 

She’d wept at the loss of just a few hundred baht, so she knew the owner of the other wallet containing thousands would be quite upset.

 

Actually, Sirirak didn’t realise she’d lost her wallet until the police phoned, but she was indeed relieved and grateful to get it back.
