Shelia Spencer had an unlucky day in October 2018. After visiting a grocery store in Birmingham, Alabama, in fact, she left both her cell phone and her wallet with $270 in cash in her shopping cart. But what happened next surprised her so much that she shared her story online – and it quickly went viral.
In everyday life, Spencer is a teacher at Birmingham City Schools. And when she isn’t on the job, she – like most people – makes plenty of trips to her local grocery store. Piggly Wiggly manager Jason Armstrong even told Yahoo Lifestyle that Spencer comes in every day.
But one of Spencer’s daily trips to Piggly Wiggly now stands out from all the rest. On this particular excursion, you see, the resident of Birmingham, Alabama, placed her iPhone and wallet inside 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.
