Lost and found.
14 yr old kid's wallet found, right where he dropped it in 1971. (No word on a circ-circ-circular impression.)
16 years ago
So St. Francis High School haven't cleaned under their bleachers for 35 years? Wonder what the hell else was down there?
suspects new ecosystems
Aliens live under bleachers. I saw it in The Faculty.
Why do they call 'em 'bleachers'?
I would like to take this opportunity of informing viewers that a current 14-year-old was not alive in 1971. The story is thus busted.
Or is it that he's no longer 14 years old, which wouldn't really surprise me, because time flies when we're having fun on the Internets.
I think it's because, on the outdoor version, you get bleached by the sun.
I wonder how many times people asked him "Well where did you lose it?"
A lot of people have lost things under the bleachers when they were 14 years old that they will never get back....sort of a biological impossibility....
"Plus, there wasn't any money in it."
Gary still hasn't learned that a found wallet carries no cash.
Wallet returned after
And he used a wallet to carry all that crap? Damn.
... well, did anyone find my watch ('can take a licking and keep on ticking') that just walked out of my school locker so mysteriously?
Six feet worth of class rings wrapped with yarn. No Quid! I will not go steady with you.
Well, there may be hope yet for that 'lost socks' thread...
I took your watch, Bees. I had a big crush on you and convinced my best friend to jimmy your locker open & steal it as a momento, giggle! I sleep with it under my pillow.
Yeah, I'd say this is a case of non-existent or lazy cleaning services. 'Bout 6 yrs ago, while living in toronto, I had a friend visit from the UK. We proceeded to hop along 3 bars. I panicked at the last one, realizing my bag (I always carry a knapsack with most of my life in it) was gone. Okay, so I backtracked where we'd been, I inquired, I looked around, I left my phone number with the keeps/managers to call if they found it. Riiiiight....nothing doing. So I went around getting new id cards, atm etc. One day at work, *precisely* 1 year later, I get a call; "Hello, is this Radio?" "Er, yes, may I ask who's calling?" "I work at *yaddayaddabar* and we found your knapsack" "Oh?? Holy crap, you know I lost it there a year ago..." "That's impossible" "Uh, no, it's true." She didn't believe me. *shrugs* or maybe she just didn't want to admit the lack of organization or whatever at the establishment. Anyway - Cue me going down to the bar after work to retrieve my knapsack in all it's now unholy-stenched glory (a yr of ciggies and booze and god knows what else).... Apparently, it had been behind an arcade machine right beside the table we'd been at. For a year. And no one noticed. It was disgustingly filthy etc. But I must say I was happy to know it hadn't been stolen. So, go figure.
