How's it going, man?
Is this someone else's purple bag?
Is this purse not yours?
Oh my God.
It's um...I think maybe a significant other?

He's calling her a worthless bitch.
I cancelled your card. Good luck paying for a lawyer when you have no money.
Hi, um, I think you've found my purse. Can I ask you a huge favor?
It's just really imperative that I get my purse back. Is there any way that you can bring it here?
Oh, you're on Milwaukee?

Awesome. Thanks, man.
Alright, thank you. I will be right back.
Oh my God, you are so amazing.
Is this your purse?
Oh my God, thank you so much. I really appreciate it.
You're welcome, you're welcome. Don't worry about it. I really don't want to invade your privacy, but are you OK?There's like some very strong text messages on there.
Saw a lot of the texts that came through and I hope that everything is OK?
Is there anything I can do to...
No, no, no, no, no!
Are you sure?
As long as you're good.
Have a good one.
