Always Check the Seat Back Pocket

On our plane flight down to Florida I was jamming to some new Muse on my i-pod. When I was done, I put it in the seat back pocket in front of me because I had a drink and peanuts on my tray table and I didn’t feel like shuffling everything around to put it back in my bag.

Big mistake and you can probably see where this is going.

I didn’t even realize I had left it on the plane until Sunday night when I thought to myself, ‘Oh, I’d better charge up my i-pod so I can listen to it tomorrow.’ Then I went to my bag and was puzzled when it wasn’t in the pocket. Then it hit me…..oh what a horrible feeling!

At the airport I went to check if any very moral person had found it and left it at the Southwest office, but I wasn’t so lucky. And the employee said that usually those things turn up right away; if hadn’t been turned in yet, it probably wasn’t going to be.

Bad karma to that person! And an annoying lesson learned by me – always check that seat back pocket when you leave a plane!!

Um yes I know that feeling all too well as I left my iPhone on the back of my bumper of my yukon 3 weeks ago after I had taken the kids picture and didn't notice until 3 hours later and AFTER we had driven all over town:(. I was truly devastated and didn't even attempt to ask for another. So sorry for your loss!!!

I really guess Tim and I were lucky when that guy returned his wallet with all the money and cards in it.

Make a voo-doo doll and stick pins in the ears.

Grrr the luck! Hate that.... I absentmindly left my laptop/briefcase in line at the Starbucks near my gate. Upon boarding the plane, i was tackled by my guardian angel and finder of the laptop tracking me down. Thankfully, I had the 3 kiddos in tow so he could quickly pick me out... but how embarrassing!! OK, nows your chance to upgrade your Ipod!
