want to vent/rant, even though I realize it's probably not going to do me any good to do so. 99.9% certain I left my android on the table I was eating at in a mexican restaurant yesterday. didn't realize I didn't have it until about an hour later. called the restaurant, called my phone about 20 times, left all kinds of messages on the missing phone... gone. the wait staff at the restaurant (our favorite place where we feel almost like family) said they had a feeling the people who came in after us took it. which of course made me think there's a possibility the wait staff took it... :/ anyhow, woke up this morning feeling really violated. I've got a bunch of pictures and videos on there from niagara falls, which we just visited. other pictures that meant a lot ot me, my 81 year old parents and other such shots that will never be replaced. thank god no naked, but some sexy shots of my wife. there was access to all my emails and everything else on my phone for a few hours. and some a-hole is now walking around with my $300 android. don't need the lectures of everything I learned since it's gone. I know. I SHOULD have: had insurance, put in a locator app, backed up my pictures, been more careful, and a bunch of other things. It was a no contract phone by the way. I paid full price. I think the thing that gets me most is I would never even consider not returning a phone if I found one. I have found phones at my gym, and when I broght them to the front dest they looked surprised and thanked me bigtime. And I'm thinking someone else is viewing my mishap here as a "finders keepers" kind of thing. I know the way kids can be with cellphones I have the feeling to whoever found it or took it it's nothing more than a huge score, as if they found few hundred dollar bills in the street. When I kept calling it yesterday I thought too it was probably just part of the game for the new owners, as in this is what happens when you get a new phone. It buzzes and rings for a few hours but eventually stops when the old owners finally give up and stop their service. It's frikken sad. I don't know how pissed I even am anymore. More sad, that people can be such pieces of crap. And yeah, I know there's much MUCH worse that people are capable of. And much worse that people do. I'm grateful I was able to go out and buy another phone. I'm grateful for a lot of things. Rant over.
