Today, I contacted a girl who dropped her ID at a club last night. I offer to drive 2 hours to return her ID to her. She is thrilled. When I arrive, she gives me a strange look, takes the ID, and runs back into her house. A two hour drive without even a thank you. FML

Did you look at her like you expected something or mention the 2 hour drive? She might have been freaked out. A thank you would've been in order, I agree, but she could've been too creeped out to remember her manners.

Or.... she flirted with him JUST to get him to return her ID. After she had it in her hands, she could return to her bitchy self.

*IDs are a royal pain in the rump now a days. to replace. No more re-applying on line anymore.

Nice point. I've certainly heard of girls doing worse. Still, no one forced OP to go there. If you're going to do something kind (or stupid), don't expect anything in return.

I would have kept it anyways, or sold it, too much work to drive. The op should have mailed the I.D

Next time turn it in to Lost and Found. My guess is somebody talked to her during the 2 hours saying something like, "OMG, you have to be careful! He probably totally stole your ID so he could drive over and rape you!!!!!"


Ooh, the theory game! Here's mine:

He didn't actually speak to the real owner of the ID before arriving. Her friend, or sister or roomie or someone, answered her phone and told him to drop it by. So to her, he just popped up out of nowhere with an ID she didn't even know she'd lost. Understandably, she gets weirded out and scuttles away, without realizing the full extent of his thoughtfulness.

Whaddya think? :]

Ooh both theories are good! If it were me in this situation, I would have asked him to mail it to me, 2 hour drive or 2 minute drive. Granted he still has my address, it's just a little less risky and a whole lot less awkward.

I lost my ID at a festival. A Good Samaritan mailed it back to me with a note with only a smiley face on it. I didn't even realize I'd lost it!

If she was concerned about that, than she wouldn't have acted thrilled when he offered to drive up. She would have acted creeped out right from the beginning.
