I was on Metro North going from CT to NYC and found a Quicksilver brand wallet on a seat. It belonged to a Joshua Puchetta. It had a middle school ID card, a Blockbuster card, six bucks, 2 four-leaf clovers, and this note! I sent him the wallet, but kept this to send to you guys at FOUND MAGAZINE!

In the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago there is a creepy used hotel furniture store, like Motel 6 stuff. I went there with some friends to explore and came across this note sitting in an open nightstand drawer. I’ve carried it with me for years since then, for luck I suppose.

I was descending the stairs at the Civic Center BART station, when I saw this little gem stuck at the bottom of the stairs, crumpled up against the wall. I passed it, then circled back, waited until no one was around, then GINGERLY picked it up (the Civic Center BART station stairs is no place to let your hygiene guard down!) and stuck it in my bike basket. I read through it and decided to submit. It reads like it was written by a homeless person or shelter dweller to another one, and the reference to bleach suggests some IV drug use as well. I don’t know how they worked it out…I am hoping the writer’s name is “Pinstripes” but I can’t quite make it out…
