Yahoo – A couple visiting San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge on Valentine’s Day discovered an unattended camera bag in a nearby parking lot. Inside the bag: credit cards, some papers and (wait for it) over $11,000. The couple, Carlos and Barbara Landeros of Vallejo, Calif., had driven down to San Francisco for a romantic dinner, according to NBCBayArea.com. Setting out on a presupper walk across the bridge, Barbara spotted camera bag. Thinking its owner would soon return, they w After 45 minutes, their patience ran out, and Barbara opened the bag. Inside was the massive stack of cash. “I got nervous at first, it could be drug money,” she told NBCBayArea.com. “I was scared.” While the couple could have had one heck of a Valentine’s Day celebration, they turned the bag and its contents over to the police. Detectives were able to locate the owner, a Chinese tourist, Mark, who’d accidentally left the bag in the lot. He was understandably excited to have his bag returned. And the cash, it turned out, wasn’t all his: Mark was holding it for several other families with whom he was traveling.aited to make sure it wasn’t stolen. NBCBayArea.com notes that the Landeroses never got their nice Valentine’s Day dinner. They wound up in traffic and had a not-so-romantic dinner for two at McDonald’s.
I think it is safe to say Carlos Landeros had the worst Valentine’s Day of any man on the planet this year. His original plan of walking across the world’s ninth largest suspension bridge followed by dropping a good amount of coin at some snooty restaurant already was a top five worst night in any man’s life. Just trying to win some points with his lady so he can live a week of his life without being nagged. Then this Barbara broad had to go and make his life even worse by spotting this camera bag.
There is no doubt in my mind Carlos saw the bag first and didn’t think twice about it because guys don’t worry about those kinds of things. His woman sees it and it becomes an hour ordeal of waiting to see if a random stranger would return followed by giving the bag to the police. So now this two hour night of hell turns into a four hour ordeal that ends with a Valentine’s Day dinner at McDonalds, which you know he heard about for getting her fast food on Valentine’s Day. Listen toots, if you just left well enough alone you would have had your fancy dinner, but instead we’re going to settle for this quarter pounder with cheese. Carlos probably still hasn’t heard the end of how he screwed up the big day, but don’t worry bro that second marriage where you marry someone 15 years younger than you will be much more enjoyable.
