Hi My name is Oliver.

I like to jump.

Today I accidentally threw away my wallet while eating at Wendy's. We (MPA students) were celebrating by eating frosties.

I realized about 4hrs later what I had done. Dumpster diving was the only solution.

Do you know how much trash Wendy's throws away every day?!

We checked receipts for times of purchase to narrow our searches.

Checked contents to see if the trash was from the right trash can.

There was a lot of trash.

I prayed.

And just as some thought there's no way I'm going to find it. . .

It worked. I found my wallet.

Some where in all of this.
