Losing stuff is annoying. Lose your keys and you can’t get in your house. Lose your phone and you can’t tell anyone that you’re locked out. Lose your wallet and you can’t even pay to get out the taxi to find out that you’ve lost your keys and phone.
The problem with losing stuff in taxis or public transport is that your fate lies with whoever has seen your belongings. Will they take it for their own profit, or will they return it as is their moral duty?
This video shows the story of a man who lost his bag with his work gear, worth $13,238.86, and his short quest to find it.
