Spartanburg, SC – A 23-year-old woman filed a police report alleging that whomever found the cell phone she lost last Friday spent the better part of the weekend texting the nude photos of her on the phone to the people in her contact list.
She told police that she had lost her phone in the parking lot of the Copper River Grill in Boiling Springs after eating a meal inside. The following day, friends began receiving text messages – with attachments – from her phone.
According to an incident report filed with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, service to the Boost Mobile phone was promptly disconnected… on Monday.
I, for one, can say that my faith in humanity is restored by gestures such as this. Normally, a lost phone would mean that treasured photos such as hers would be gone forever. For someone to take the time and effort to ensure – through her friends – that she would have her keepsake photos despite her material loss is heartening. Pay it forward, I say.
