FOUND by Jessica F. at University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
My roommate Tracey found this remorseful letter on the ground near her school. The saddest part is that it had been sealed with tape and obviously never opened, meaning either that it never reached its recipient, or that she threw it on the ground without reading it.

This sign was tacked to the door of an abandoned building in Victoria, BC– a Canadian city of moderate size on the south tip of Vancouver Island. The building was used to store tables and display items for the Sunday Government Street Market. No one knew someone lived there – until we saw this sign. A polite soul, someone with dignity.
I’m a Greyhound bus driver in British Columbia. We often find things left behind by passengers, most of it quite literally trash. Sometimes we find notebooks or sketch pads, and I usually try to find the owner; but, other times, there’s really nothing that can be done beyond tossing the item into the Lost and Found. I found this letter in a “pup,” one of those little trailers that are pulled behind Greyhound buses across the country. You can see that it was sitting in some mud or slush on the floor of the trailer. It seems the note must have somehow fallen out of a parcel.
