Found in an abandoned farm house near my sister’s house. The house was actually on a lake so the basement was completely filled chest-deep with water. The interesting thing about this find is that it was as though the woman just simply vanished one day and no one seemed to care. Her pay stubs with her social security number were lying all around, paid by the convenient store across the street that she worked at for $5.35 an hour; food was still in the refrigerator, rotting away; the cupboards, as you can see in the photo, were completely filled. I could go on and on about this house – it is simply one of the most fascinating places I have ever found.
I was walking to my math class when I noticed a bunch of little pieces of paper strewn across the hallway. I stole my math teacher’s tape, lost my participation points in class and slowly taped it all together, discovering the secret lives of Erin and Tiffany.
FOUND by Laura Applegate in Wayne County Library, Wooster, Ohio
I work in my local library where this little beauty was found. We check each book that is returned for damage, loose papers, etc. This tiny piece of paper was used as a bookmark. Its message: concise but completely baffling. Its message: profound. The snack of bagel bites and filet mignon sounds tasty! Ummm, am I a yuppie too?
This is a cheap machine/lab print of a vintage photo. My best guess is that the owner wanted to share this ancient picture with somebody, photographed it, and took the film for printing to the one-hour lab. I found this in Washington Heights close to- you guessed it- a one-hour lab.
I was shelving books at the library where I worked. I opened one up called “How to Get Into Law School” and noticed a little note stuck right below the title on the title page. I was especially impressed that the person cared enough about the book to write the message on a Post-It rather than the page of the book! I would like to find this person and ask them to subtitle more books.
I found this in a IU student lounge and I couldn’t believe they would use Comic Sans for something so serious. I also wondered what the “specific tasks” are that you can do to earn extra cash. And yes, people had taken a few of the tags at the bottom.
