Never let it be said that Shae Miller isn’t a good samaritan.
The Brisbane office manager has made headlines around the world after her attempt to reunite a lost wallet with its owner on live television went viral.
Miller, who may have been slightly intoxicated at the time, wandered into a live cross by journalist Phil Willmington from Eagle Farm Racecourse and demanded that he help her find the owner of a lost wallet.
“Channel Nine, I think you need to know,” she said, giving Willmington a bit of a shock, “somebody has lost three dollars”.
“Can you return that to the rightful owner?”
After Willmington informed her that he “probably wouldn’t be able to find them”, Miller got indignant.
“No, no, it’s important. How dare you?” she asked, as she tried to stuff the wallet into Willmington’s jacket pocket, an instant classic TV moment.

A dusty Miller appeared on the Today Show this morning to tell her side of the story.
“I just — I think I was more shocked that he [Willmington] wasn’t prepared to help me find the owner there,” she said.
“I wasn’t expecting a no!”
In the end, Miller handed the wallet into security on her way out of the grounds — “which, in hindsight, I should have done to start with”.
