PORTLAND, OR (via: KPTV) -
A local woman received a special thank you (and a free meal) from the owner of the popular KOi Fusion food carts after she returned an envelope of money he’d misplaced.
Owner Bo Kwon showed up at Cathy Mayes’ home Monday with flowers and burritos in hand.
Mayes found an envelope on that ground last month that had $700 in cash inside. She traced it back to Koi Fusion and returned the money to its owner.
Mayes said she was always taught to do the right thing, and didn’t expect anything in return, other than a thank you.
“It’s not mine and if I lost something, I’d want somebody to return it to me also,” Mayes said.
Kwon said he’s not sure how he lost the money, but he’s glad to have it back.
“To think that someone found it on the ground and went through all the trouble to find out who we are and bring it back to us with all the money there and not expect a thing back except a ‘thank you’ was really, really heartwarming,” Kwon said.
