lost and foundOn my flight back from Vegas last week, I did something I never did before, I forgot something on the plane. I left my Bose earphones on the plane, in the seat pocket in front of me.

I remember placing them there when the flight attendants asked us to turn off our devices. I actually thought to myself, I better put it in my bag but I didn’t want to bother people by getting out of my seat. At 5am in the morning and not sleeping, I actually forgot it.

I arrived at my office at about 6:15am, right from the airport and did not notice that I forgot the earphones until I dropped off my bags at my house at about 9am.

When I got back to my office at about 9:20am that day (yes, I live like 10 minutes away from my office) I reported the lost item online. On Sunday, they called me in my office to tell me they found the item.

I was a bit shocked. Even though I have my business card in the bose earphone case, I thought there was no way I was getting these back. I was wrong! I am told they will ship it to me, of course, I will pay – it was my mistake.

These are expensive headphones and I had them for years. Would have hated to buy new ones, since these work just fine.

Thanks Continental!

    I heard you on the phone with Continental. I thought to myself, “there’s no way in hell he’s seeing those again”!

    I’m shocked you actually got them back. Was it a fellow passenger who turned them in or a cleaner? Either way, good for you. I would hate to lose my Shure’s. :-/

    You are REALLY lucky. I have done the same thing. TWICE. Only I had my iPod in headphone case, so I was doubly screwed.

    I put a claim in to lost and found both times.

    Never seen or heard from again.

    I forgot my ipod in my seat pocket and filled the thing on their website. I’ve never heard back from them
