You ever lose shit?

Postby Jimbo » 16 Feb 2017, 13:23

A few hours ago, on the very last leg of my return from two weeks in San Diego, on the short train ride from the airport bus terminal to my station, I left my backpack on the luggage rack. I got off the train wheeling my big suitcase, went down the escalator to the exit and it hit me that i had left my backpack on the train. In the pack was my MacBook, passport, some cash, iPod/Mac wires and my glasses. I feel like such a schmuck and my wife is not assuaging my schmucky feelings one iota. We reported it through the channels and I am pretty sure it'll turn up at the big lost and found in Tokyo Station, this being Japan and all. I'll file a police report tomorrow and if it doesn't turn up maybe my insurance will pay for my computer. :oops:

Yeah a lot of shit really. Some reason I'm not really bothered, I don't know why.

Get a wife. You'll be bothered plenty.

Lately I've been losing a lot of shit but then finding it again.

I lose shit all the time. I always put it in the big white piggy-bank on the floor, and then when I go back later to get it it's gone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If it's worth anything, I'm already on my 3rd pair of Winter gloves this year alone.

Three times now I've read this thread title as YOU EVER LOSE YOUR SHIT?

which might be a great copycat thread in and of itself
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Not really. I'm pretty cautious and paranoid so I check things a lot.

The worst thing I ever lost was a camera which I left on a table at a restaurant in Goa. It had about three months of holidays pics on it. I cried.

I did too at first glance.

I lost my beloved Canon on a bus in Seattle but it was pre digicam days so it was only the one roll of film with I forget how many shots used. I left a day backpack in a taverna on a Greek island with a camera in and also a heavy weight Scottish jumper, one of those Sarah Lund style ones although what on earth possessed me of the need to take it to Greece in the summer is beyond me.
Other than that, I'm pretty good at hanging on to stuff.

Unless you lose the wife, then you're free and clear. Unfortunately, those things are like boomerangs.

I left my iPad in the bathroom at the university I teach at one evening. I couldn't go back for it because I had already headed out of town for the weekend. I was one hundred miles down the road when I realized what happened. Thankfully I was able to use my iPhone to lock the iPad down. I also called a fellow colleague and she stored it in her office. Sucks what all you left in that bag, though. Best wishes in finding it!

I tend to lose stuff when I'm knocked off my routine arriving home. It used to happen more when the kids were little and the wife or kids asked me to do something before I could put stuff away in its normal place.

It doesn't happen very often, but I tend to forget my debit card after paying in a restaurant. I've had to go back a couple times to retrieve it or forgotten it.

Good news! They have my bag in a conductors office at Tokyo station. I was pretty sure it would turn up and that no one had stolen it because this is Japan where shit is hardly ever stolen.
