I just had a phone call that my husband's Blackberry, with all his work files and emails on it, had been found in the middle of a highway in Luton. A taxi driver called us because she had been called by the man who found it. He picked the last number called, and it was her.
My husband was driving to Cambridge for a reunion so I guess he did something on the way there -- but how did it end up in the middle of a highway?
I called his college friends who I knew were also going to the reunion. They were all at lunch. "Have you seen Mel?" I asked, and explained the problem. They erupted into hysterical laughter at him doing something so stupid and not even knowing it yet.
Finally, I got the number of a friend who would be driving up with Mel. My husband didn't even realize he'd lost the phone. duh. He said he was checking the map on his phone in the car, and he thought he put it back in his pocket but no, it fell out in the middle of the road.
I will chalk this episode up to jetlag....
Have you ever lost your phone someplace really stupid or embarrassing?
A guy at work accidentally flushed his down the toilet one time.
