Tyler Opdyke , a great young man has gone viral for his act of goodness. ‘If I was this person that dropped his wallet what would I want the other person to do?’
That’s what the 18-year-old asked himself when he found a wallet containing credit cards and $1,500 in cash in Elk Grove, California, on Friday.
Tyler was passing out door hangers for his uncle’s pest control business, Strike Zone Pest Control, when he found the wallet in a driveway.
He picked up the wallet, went to the driveway’s house and rang the doorbell to return it but no one answered, according to Elk Grove Laguna News.
But instead of deciding to take it after no one came out, he held the wallet up to the surveillance camera and placed it by the front door.
Tyler went back to the house to make sure it was picked up after he finished handing out fliers and that’s when the homeowner, Melissa Vang, greeted the good Samaritan.
It turns out, she had seem him earlier when he first came by but because she was home with her two young children, she decided to wait until he left to check the front door.
When she saw Tyler the second time she thanked him and gave him a reward for finding her husband’s wallet.
Tyler said he would want someone to return his wallet to him if it was found.
‘Essentially the golden rule,’ he told Elk Grove Laguna News.
