Maine waitress turns in $1,700 customer left behind

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — A Maine man was stunned when he learned that the $1,700 in cash in an envelope he'd inadvertently left on a table at a South Portland restaurant had been turned in to management by the 24-year-old waitress who'd served him.

Glenn Morse, who owns Morse Builders in Portland, says he'd pulled the envelope out of his pocket March 11 to pay his tab, and didn't realize he'd lost it until the next morning. The money was for payroll and expenses.

The Portland Press Herald reports that Buffalo Wild Wings waitress Kaylie Cyr found the envelope and immediately turned it in to management.

Morse returned to the restaurant days later to thank Cyr and compliment her for her honesty, and to give her $100.

Cyr said that made her day.
