lZ.Ja, vveclnesclay, April 23, 2014 ruduw ilVff DUlltlrl Honest merchant saves the day for Georgia couple Dan McDonald Managing Editor dmcdonald@plumasnews.corn The honesty of a Quincy merchant saved an Atlanta, Ga., couple's vacation and renewed their faith in "goodness" last month. During a.drive from Paradise to Las Vegas on March 2, Tracy and Mark Englund made a quick pit stop at the local Chevron. Nearly two hours later, the Englunds were in the drive-thru at a Reno Burger King when panic set in. "I reached into the back seat and I realized my purse wasn't there," Tracy recalled. "It took just a few seconds before I figured it out .... I had left my purse in the bathroom at the gas station." The Englunds, professional photographers who were on their way to a portrait photography "He not only saved our trip (and maybe my marriage ... LOL), he kept afive my faith in the goodness of people." Traci England conference in Las Vegas, immediately turned around and raced back to Quincy. "Panic sets in," Tracy said. "In my purse is not only my wallet, cash and credit cards, but also our passports and a blank money order for my house payment. "The ride back through the mountains was pretty quiet, except for the occasional 'You know all our money is gone, right.'" Tracy said she never jumped out of a vehicle as fast as she did when they returned to the Chevron. "As I walked in, Bob is looking at me and saying 'Hi miss. I tried calling the number on your business cards.'" "Bob" isthe business's owner, Balbir Chauhan. He found the purse in the bathroom and was desperately trying to get in touch with the Englunds. During a short chat while the Englunds were in the station the first time, Chauhan learned they were headed for Vegas. He hoped he could contact them before they reached Southern Nevada. He even enlisted his daughter in an attempt to reach Tracy via the couple's Web page and on Facebook. "You found my purse!?" Tracy asked, before her tears began to fall. "Yes," Chauhan replied. "It's all there. You can look." The Englunds each tried to pay Chauhan. But he wouldn't accept a reward. Chauhan said he was just doing what he always does when customers forget something. "It happens a lot," he said. "One Christmas a truck driver left a wallet with $900 in it. I was able to get ahold of him also." Tracy Englund was so thankful for Chauhan that she decided to write his local newspaper to tell her story. "He not only saved our trip (and maybe my marriage ... LOL), he kept alive my faith in the goodness of people." IS ALL IT TAKES TO NEED...
