Lost A Sense Of Irony

| Wildwood, NJ, USA | Right | October 22, 2010

Customer: “Hi, can I check your lost and found? I think I left my phone here the other night.”

Me: “Sure.” *gets out box* “Here you go.”

Customer: *rummages through the box* “Whoa!”

(She finds a very expensive MP3 player and begins to pocket it.)

Me: “Ma’am, you said you left your phone here.”

Customer: “Yea so? I still want this.”

Me: “But it’s not yours, someone else lost it and will probably be looking for it.”

Customer: “Well if they were stupid enough to lose something so expensive they don’t deserve to have it! Oh, here’s my phone!”

(She walks away with her brand new iPhone 4.)

    You shouldn’t have let her go through the lost and found, nor should you have let her just walk away.

      Anytime I’ve ever gone to ask a Lost and Found about something, THEY go look for it. They don’t just bring a box of stuff and let me happily rummage through it.

        Last time I did, I just told them I’d lost my phone, and the person asked if it was a white one (it was). I answered “Yeah, a white LG”, but at that point he already handed it to me.

    “Hi, this idiot just tried to walk away with something that she admitted wasn’t hers …”

    These stories make me seriously angry. This should be in Working, OP just let this woman steal someone’s phone.

      Implying that it wasn’t theirs… for all we know it was hers thus the whole point of the situation being ironic
