Shelia Spencer had an unlucky day in October 2018. She left both her cell phone and her wallet with $270 in cash in her shopping cart in a Birmingham, Alabama, grocery store. But what happened next surprised her so much that she shared her story online – and it quickly went viral.
Spencer is a teacher at Birmingham City Schools. And when she isn’t on the job, she makes plenty of trips to her local grocery store. Indeed, Piggly Wiggly manager Jason Armstrong told Yahoo Lifestyle that Spencer comes in every day.
But one of Spencer’s daily trips would stand out from the rest. After popping in for some shopping after work, the resident of Birmingham, Alabama, placed her iPhone and wallet into her cart. Spencer then duly did her shopping, and later wheeled the cart back into the port outside the store, leaving her belongings still inside.
