Why did my good deed elicit a suspicious response?

dear miss: I discovered a lady’s purse lying on the floor in the parking lot of a grocery store. I checked the contents and found that it contained a driver’s license, credit cards, insurance cards, vaccination certificate and other important forms of identification, but no cash.

Her address was nearby, and I was able to get her phone number online, so I called her to tell her I had found her wallet and was going to drive her back.

She seemed excited and grateful, but when I arrived, I immediately searched her to see how much money was available before giving me a frustrated look.

I explained that I had found the wallet free of cash, but she seemed unsatisfied, perhaps silently wondering if I had taken what was there. Then she gave me a dusty bottle of wine as a gift and thanked me again, and quickly escorted me to the door.
