Man Rewarded After Handing Pricey Watch To Owner
MIAMI – (CBSMiami.com) – A Fort Lauderdaleman was rewarded for doing the right thing.
On Saturday, a limousine picked up Brenni Elisee and his girlfriend to take them to the Miami Heat game.
All because Elisee mistakenly received a FedEx package addressed to Aaron Parthemer.
Yes, Elisee admits he was curious. He shook the box and tossed it about. But in the end, he called the number on the box and reached Parthemer who picked it up.
“I saw the name of my jeweler and I just about fainted. The fact of the matter is it came to someone else’s house,” said Parthemer. “It wasn’t signed for and it was just left there. There would have been no trace of it.”
Inside, was a diamond encrusted Cartier watch that could have simply disappeared but Elisee says that would not have been the right thing to do.
“Wow. I was just blown away. VIP and we get to meet the Heat players,” said Elisee. “I don’t know what I did to deserve this. I feel like I’m worth 90 million now by doing this and my mom is very proud of me.”
