This is a question Lost...

Trying to impress a new girlfriend, I 'borrowed' my mother's car. Dropping her off in London, I managed to lose the car keys between locking it and reaching the other side of the road. Utter humiliation followed as my mum took the train to London with the spare key...

What have you lost over the years?

i know a little boy who lost some money
Last year, I was rushing around trying to get some last minute
Xmas Shopping done. I was stressed out and not thinking very
fondly of the Christmas season. It was dark, cold, and wet in
the multi story Car park, i noticed that i was missing the
parking receipt which i would need To get out of the car park
without paying, so mumbling under my breath, i Retraced my steps
to the shopping centre entrance.

As i was searching the wet pavement, i heard a quiet sobbing.
The crying was Coming from a poorly dressed boy of about 10
years old. He was short and Thin. He had no coat. He was just
wearing a ragged flannel shirt to protect Him from the cold
evenings chill.He was holding two fifty pound notes in his
hand.Thinking that he had got Lost from his parents, i asked
him what was wrong and he told me his sad Story.

He came from a large family. His father had died when he was seven
years Old. His mother worked two full time jobs to make ends meet.
Nevertheless, She had managed to scrimp and save two hundred pounds
to buy her children Christmas presents.

The young boy had been dropped off, by his mother, on the way to her
second Job. He was to use the money to buy presents for all his
brothers and Sisters and save just enough to take the bus home. He

Had not even entered The shopping centre, when an older boy grabbed
Two of his fifty pound notes And disappeared into the night.
"why didn't you scream for help?" i asked.

The boy said, "i did."
"and Nobody came to help you?" the boy stared at the ground and
sadly shook his Head. "how loud did you scream?" i enquired. The
soft-spoken boy looked up And meekly whispered, "help me!"

I realised that absolutely no one could have heard that poor boy cry
for Help.So i grabbed his other two fifty pound notes and fucked off.

A wheely bin too!
This is to betty swollocks - while living in the chaviest parts of cheltenham, me and my housemates had our bin stolen on 3 seperate occasions and on each occasion it was full up too - on drunken escapades home we would steal other people's bin after we had fallen victim to the bin stealer - but after the third occasion we thought some one must really dislike us - so we stopped caring and stealing and decent sanitary etiquette

When I were a nipper
...I had a full set of MANTA ships. These were huge plastic spaceships with a plethora of colour-coded troops arranged inside. As I said, I had the full set, virtually gave every troop a name, and the love and pride I felt to these men in uniform was quite frankly suspect.
Then one day my brother lost one of the figures, an important one, a Lieutenant or something. All was ruined. They weren't the same any more. Sure they were physically there, but I knew it was all a fraud: there was one missing. Furious, I stopped playing with them overnight and moved on to whatever young boys do next.
I learned a lesson about materialism that night, specifically, the folly of giving your love to material objects. Everything breaks or is lost eventually. So why bother?

Rampant stupidity
I went to see Sly and the Family Stone when I was about 16. There was a cloakroom at the club, so I took off my new black leather coat and put it on a hanger. Surprise - when I came back to the cloakroom hours later, it was gone! Imagine that! I left the club a slightly smarter guy, and shivered all the way home.

Thirty-five years later, a guy came into my athletic club, took off his 3/4 length leather coat and put it on a hanger in the coat rack. He changed and went for a workout. I found out later that when he returned, his coat was gone. Whoever stole it fished his car keys out of a pocket, strode into the parking lot and pressed a button. The guy's Jaguar said "I'M RIGHT OVER HERE, DUDE!" So the thief jumped in and drove away.

I've lost the remote to the TV
what annoys me about that is that people are more than happy to spend ages looking for it but cant be bothered to just get up and change the channel normally.

Numerous sets of keys
On quite a few occasions I've lost keys, only for them to turn up in the door. One day, i found one set in the lock and another in the knob, and I was carrying a third set.

Needless to say my keys have a belt loop hook now.

not me, but a mate...
lost one and a half toes of his right foot in an motorbike accident.

during his time in st. thomas he was all drugged up on morphium and when the dude who brought breakfast came around and asked in his west indies accent "wan' some toas'?" he would answer "yes, one and a half please!"

Everytime I wash said garments I end up with at least 1 missing from its pair. I have a drawer full of odd socks in the vain hope their mates magically turn up 6 months down the line.

Switch Card
Losing it once would be fine, acceptable even. I may get these out of order, but I think it went something like this. At a festival, jumping around, bumbag (nerdy but oh so practical when your only non-jeans and nice and cool on a hot summers day trousers come with tiny rubbish pockets) is slightly open. Kiss £75 oroton wallet goodbye - farewell gift from mates in Oz. Luckily, I'm paranoid so cash was in separate pouch of bumbag. Get new switch. Go to club. In new trousers with silly vertical zippy pockets. Wallet falls out in cab rank on way home when go for fags. Get new switch. Go clubbing again, sensible trousers, decide wallets are bad. So stick switch card into cellophane wrapper of fag packet. Smoke like chimney, bin empty packet (despite REMEMBER SWITCH CARD'S IN FAGS written on the back of both hands). Get new switch. Quit smoking. Go to Prague. Get mugged. Get new switch. Forget pin when using 'I'll eat your card' cashpoint. Get new switch. All in the space of about 4 months. I think I've forgotten a couple. I'm was up to issue 7. This one was in danger of actually running out, but now they sent me chip'n'pin one. Damn their eyes.

30 quid
Went to a cash machine, entered PIN, pressed the right buttons. Went on to autopilot mode and walked off with my card, but left the money dangling out of the machine.

I think a bunch of chavs stood nearby made off with it.

lost key too...
surfing at lennox head in NSW a year ago, tied the gf's carkey to the little string in the boardies pocket. 2 hours later no key. volvo impossible to break into, even the NRMA guy couldn't do it. had to hitch back to byron (3 mal's on the roof of a ford laser...), then hire a car to get us back to brisbane. then the gf's mum had to post a key up from melbs, then gf had to drive back down to byron, then hitch to lennox to get car (which no-one else had been able to break into either), and drive back up to brissie. that's a shiteload of driving. then i lost the gf a while later (unrelated incident, i think).

My uncle..
Seriously, just a couple of days ago. He went to the hospital for surgery, then apparently he was drugged and wandered off. The hospital lost him, so it wasn't really me, but I found that amusing.

He should turn up soon.

Leeds Festyval
Managed to lose my phone, and my wallet with about £70 in on the first night. Something to do with having to get through 2 litres of vodka in three nights. Me looking forward to three days with no money, but remember doing a sumersault, so I went and looked where I'd done that, but to no avail. Stripped tent down like three times, lost property every few hours. No luck all friday, and thus no food. Only vodka.

Day after that I'm sitting there in a daze watching some band & I see's a pink cap that stirs something in my brain. Ask lady under tha cap how I recognise her, if she lives near me or anything? Despite being slightly offended, she reveals that I'd left my phone and wallet in her tent 2 nights previously. She was buff; didn't dare ask, but potentially I've forgotten one hell of a night.

But I had £70 I thought I'd lost forever, which is kinda like being given £70 pounds, so I didn't mind spending the whole lot on booze :)

Lost a snake
My second pet snake was a very attractive Mexican Black Kingsnake who was very friendly to all and let everybody handle him...

Then, about 3 weeks after moving to my new house, I got him a new vivarium - meaning that I could use the old one as a cleaning tank. Now anybody who's kept snakes knows that the little fuckers are excellent escape artists. Cue me coming back into the room an hour later to find the snake gone, never to be seen again.

Now the worst bit: note I'd mentioned moving into a new house above. This house was a semi-detached house, and as we all know there are potentially lots of holes in the seperating wall, which an inch diameter snake can sneak through, so it was only prudent to warn the neighbours.

Cue a worried me ringing the doorbell of the two attractive women next door and trying to explain how my not exactly normal pet may enter their abode...

The moved out soon afterwards, never could understand why!

Lost : Large amount of dog crap
I either mislaid it or some cucking funt stole my wheelie bin six months ago. They stole it the day before it was emptied and it was full of rubbish and a large amount of dog shite. Checked around the street and still it stayed lost. Wife reported it to the police and they said 'not to worry loads go missing and we never find them' (oh thats solved that then, pffft). But why nick a full one? So if anyone finds a bin with 22 on the side that stinks of dog crap can you leave it where it is as I have a nice new shiny one.
