So last week after meeting with a friend at Boston Pizza I stupidly left my Iphone in the washroom. 2 hours later and 2 hours away at home I realize it's missing. The restaraunt looked for it and found nothing. I have it blocked and start looking for a new one on eBay. $600!?!? Sith spit!!

3 hours later a guy calls to say he found it - God bless his soul til eternity!
I pick it up two days later and he refuses any kind of reward.
Why?

He explains "I knew I HAD to return it - you're a Star Wars Fan."
The phone is laced with SW stuff of course and he had gone through the phone pretty thoroughly trying to figure out who's it was. He'd even seen all the Fandays III pics!!!

He said "Because I knew you were a fan I had to give it back."

Let's hear it for STAR WARS FANS!!!

WE ROCK.

Fantastic, Sheldon! That guy gets high marks for being a good citizen. I'd give him an "Eh"! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

That's just awesome, Sheldon!

It's nice to see how, now and then, good things happen to good people. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

well played.


Sheldon, I handle a lot of people's iphones and I've noticed more people than I would expect have some sort of Star Wars thing on em. Whether it's the lightsaber app or Force Unleashed or the new X-Wing game. Some are just casual pop-culture fans, not even that into it but it's still suprising to me.

It's a pretty horrible feeling.
I didn't know about Jimmy's I just heard he got it!
OHHH MANN I hope he gets it back.

Another funny thing that Jimmy and I have in common is I recently lost my wife's power cord for her laptop - same as Jimmy did as heard on Snyde Remarks. I finally found it though.

Yeah, he got it back.
It was on the last SnydeRemarksRadio, I think.
