Harold Walls, Delaware Man, Reunited With Wallet, $800 In Cash After Three Years

A man in charge of throwing away trash for a living quickly gave up hope after losing his wallet during a work-shift in Milford, Delaware.

“I wrote it off, honestly. I’d lost it, done and gone,” trash collector Harold Walls told Delaware Online. “Ain’t no sense in harping about it or crying over spilled milk. Keep moving.”

All was not lost, however. Three years later, Walls's wallet was discovered and returned.

Best part: The $800 he left in it was still there.
