Lost and Lonely Keys

Not long ago, Melissa and I stopped by the Post Office (after-hours) so she could use the automated postage machine and send a small package. Since I am easily bored, and Melissa was taking too long, I went walking around the 24-hour section of the Post Office (which pretty much includes the postage machines and the P.O. boxes).

Near the end of the P.O. boxes, I noticed somebody had left their keys sitting in the keyhole of their box. Judging by the keychain and the keys on it, the owner is retired Navy and drives a Toyota. No other useful information was present. Since the Post Office was closed, and there was no name, phone number, or address on the keys, I just left them there. I felt bad about it, but there really wasn’t much else I could do. Hopefully they made their way back to their rightful owner.
