Lost phone...
...I dropped my ambulances mobile phone attending a car accident and didn't notice I'd lost it until later. I informed the emergency call center of the loss in case someone found it and called them (phone was clearly marked).
I get a call on the station phone at the end of my shift from a communications operator:
Comms op: "Someone found your phone. You dropped it at that car accident".
Me: "Thanks. Where is it?"
Comms op: "It got handed in to us."
Me: "I'll get someone from the next shift to pick it up."
Comms op: "You could have picked it up earlier when you were in the area you know."
Me: "I suppose, but I didn't know you had it."
Comms op: "Well I did phone you several times, but you never answered once did you?"
Me: "Phoned me? I was in the ambulance all day. What phone did you call?"
Comms op: "Duh! The mobile of course!"
Me: "What, the same one you are looking after for me?"
Comms op: "Oh...I wondered what that noise was."

I'm afraid this is par for the course with this comms op...
