Today, I found a phone in a fitting room. I called the number that said "home" to let the owner know that I was going to give it to the store's manager. Apparently the husband didn't know his wife was out shopping and "blowing all his earnings". FML

You deserved it 2 707

Enslaved tells us more.

OP here! First off, when I called the number, a man answered. When I told him I found a phone,(an iPhone5c for those that are curious) he told me to "**** off" and that I had the wrong number, then hung up on me. He called the phone back a few minutes later and I could hear him yelling to what I assumed was his wife/GF in the background. He was asking her if she went out shopping? and how dare she spend his money, plus lose her phone! I did give the phone to the manager of the department store and told the man to pick it up there tomorrow if he wants it, since the store was already closed for the night. My heart is just uneasy because I know that my call caused what seems to be an argument between the lady that owns the phone and an irate man. I could tell he was very controlling and she was very afraid of him.

Just tell him how much you saved him by finding the phone.

Your call didn't cause anything. Her lying about going off shopping and his attitude in general started the argument between them.


Just tell him how much you saved him by finding the phone.

And he could save even more by switching to Gico...

No no no, progressive is where it's at.

You did the right thing, I'm guessing she didn't...

Well... They are going to have something to talk about when she gets home...

Calmly give the phone to the store manager and try not to think about how angry the husband will be.

you did the right thing, not sure what he thought making you feel awkward would accomplish though

You just earned yourself some good karma!

I bet it's not just his earnings she's blowing.

thats right! maybe she earned all she spends with all his blowings.

in all seriousness tho she could definatly have earned her cash for shopping n he just be controlling with the money.....or she could be a shopaholic that doesn't know when to stop before going into bill/food money. Hard to tell.

#65 Or she doesn't have a job and it literally is his money?

You're a good person. Most people I know would keep and sell the phone.

That is really her problem. But you're an awesome honest person for giving it back!
