For a while now, Marinda Wilmot stopped carrying a handbag with her. She explained in a Facebook post that she would lock up her handbag in her car's trunk and keep a bit of cash in her cellphone's cover.

However, last week, Wilmot took her handbag with her while dining with her other half at a Steers restaurant at Diner Shell Ultra City.

Wilmot said she had gotten so used to not having a handbag with her, that she left Steers without taking it and ended up going back to her work.

Briefly.co.za learned she received a phone call four hours later, informing her that she had forgotten her handbag.

She drove back and found a "team of ladies" who apologised for rummaging through her handbag to identify her.

Wilmot revealed the women found one of her cards and begged the person working there for her contact details.

When Wilmot received her handbag, all her belongings, including her wallet, ID, cards and spare keys (for her car, house and office) were all still in there.

"I am deeply thankful for the team who went out of their way and proved that there still are honest people who are proud of what they do. I will indeed support you more," Wilmot wrote in Afrikaans.
