We’ve probably all been here before. You’re staying at a hotel and you wonder if it’s safe to leave your valuables behind in your room. If you’re like me, you probably end up leaving them and stressing about it at least a little bit.
But whatever your fears, this story is proof that the vast majority of people who work in the service industry are hardworking and honest.
It all starts with an elderly couple. They were living in Ypsilanti, Michigan, but they wanted to move closer to their family, who lived more than 500 miles away in Kentucky.
They watched a moving company pack up their things and load it into a truck. Then they left for their new home. Perhaps wanting to be sure that they’d have money when they arrived, they brought a hefty amount of cash so they could start their new life in Kentucky without a hitch.
All told, the couple brought $11,000 cash with them. The trip went smoothly and it seemed like it was a success. But when they arrived at their new home, the couple realized that something was horribly wrong.
The wife was missing one of her bags.
The couple didn’t know what to do — or even where to start looking. But it turned out that they had a guardian angel watching over the bag!
Brigid Murray is a housekeeper at Ann Arbor Regent Hotel, where the couple stopped on their trip. Brigid entered the room where they had stayed and found the woman’s bag in the bottom drawer of a dresser.
She could have taken the bag, but it never even crossed her mind. It would’ve been completely wrong. Brigid is an honest woman with her heart in the right place.
Without Brigid, the couple would’ve had a crisis on their hands. But thankfully, the bag was eventually returned to them. Just wait until you hear the end of this wonderful story!
Brigid’s coworkers say that she’s proof that there’s still good in the world. In an interview with ABC, the couple’s son said that his mom cried tears of joy when she heard that Brigid had found the money.
