Last year for my sister's birthday, I purchased her a pair of C9 Convertible gloves from Target.
I thought they were pretty nice and I considered purchasing a pair for myself but I didn't. I stuck to the plan and only bought stuff for her during that trip.
I really like that these are warm, yet you can remove the top to expose fingers so you can manipulate your electronics. I have a few pair of the touch screen gloves, but they don't always work.
I gave my sister the gloves for her birthday and I assumed she like them. About a week later, Scott and I were down at the island park for a run. As we were leaving, I noticed a brand new pair of the grey C9 gloves laying on the ground. They were clipped together so it was if they had fallen out of someone's pocket.
I knew my sister had gone for a run earlier that day and thought perhaps she had ran this same route and lost her gloves. I quickly picked them up and was so proud of myself that I found them for her!
I called her on my way home to tell her but she didn't answer. Finally, later on that day I got a hold of her and I told her about the gloves. She informed me that she had her gloves right there at home with her. Oh NO! That means I had taken somebody else's gloves!
Okay, I debated for a while on what to do. I actually did feel really guilty for taking them when I knew they belonged to someone else. Should I drive them back to the area where I found them? It's not like they were sitting on a park bench or anything, they were on the road. Would someone actually come back for them? If someone knew they were missing, would they know right where to look? If I DID put them back, would someone else pick them up anyway?
In the end, my laziness won out and I never took them back to the park. I threw them in the wash and I've worn them a few times when the weather was chilly. They are soft, they are warm, and I love them. Do you judge me?
Have you ever found anything on a run that ended being useful to you? -M
