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!!
