Lost Ring Found - A Midnight Recovery in West Bloomfield Michigan

  • from Wixom (Michigan, United States)

I was sleeping and it took a few tries for Michael to wake me.  I heard the phone ring on his his fourth call.

It was cold and windy when I went to bed and I could hear through the phone connection that Michael was cold.  Hurriedly, he explained he had accidentally tossed his wedding ring out his car window.  He had a good idea where it landed; fortunately he had not been driving more than 5 mph when he lost the ring.  He called for help and along with several friends, he and his wife had been searching since 7:30 pm.  It was almost midnight and I could tell he was desperate.

We talked for a few minutes longer and I knew he would be there all night without help.  I took a little longer getting to the spot then I planned as I made a few wrong turns on my way.  Michael had faith, and was waiting for me when I found the cold but determined group.  It did not take long to recover Michael’s ring.

Moral of the story – Don’t throw things out the window of your car and don’t search futility for hours, call the ringfinder while the light is still good.

 

A Happy Ending

Special thanks to my AAA Insurance Agent Adam Hukkala for providing the reflective vest I wore while working on the road side.  Always keep safety first.
