it just happens that i know who joe devito is, and i happen to work in the dept. that can best get in touch with him. so i call my shift manager, who is surprised to hear from me on my day off, and ask her to put me in touch with joe. joe confirms these cards are indeed for one robert miller, and i call the store in ny back and let them know both the mall and the casino think the cards probably do belong to that guy.
i would have felt SO BAD if anyone else had been here and had to deal with that call. it took me just a couple minutes, but no one else at the mall could have done it after business hours with any ease.
so, brandon, it's your lucky day ^_~
