Teacher, Librarian

I found this at Lincoln High School in an English classroom. It was probably written by a group of kids in response to an “Animal Farm” (by Orwell) assignment. I thought it was kinda funny. I teach at Lincoln High School and find funny stuff all time; I should really send more of it in.

Heart Receipt

I work valet at the U of M hospital. I found this in the parking lot of the emergency room. I’m pretty sure it came from an ambulance. Haven’t seen one before or since.

Happy Monkey

I was wiping down tables at the coffee shop and found this note on the window ledge nearby. There are a number of couples and blind dates that meet at our shop. I guess romance is not dead, just left behind sometimes.

Journal Entry

I work at a recycling center (and find enough things to start my own ‘found’ site). I thought this was FOUND-worthy because of the author’s unique style. Maybe they’re now hard at work on the next “great American novel???”

If You Want Your Shit Back

Found this in the hallway at my high school. Given that it’s a high school, it probably stemmed from a bad breakup. ‘Bitch ass dyke’ is now my favorite curse.

Beach Note

This was inside an envelope left by my neighbor for me to find. In the seven years I’ve lived here, no one else has ever felt it necessary to use a string trimmer on the thick grass that grows wild in the sand.

Getting into Law School

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 … Continued

Pick Me

I found this on the Grand Valley State University campus the other day. Either L didn’t give the letter to the person it was intended for, or L wasn’t the one he picked. Either way, it is sad and interesting all at once.

Great Job Reading

I found this piece on the sidewalk about a quarter-mile from my daughter’s elementary school.

Old School

Found in a school abandoned circa 1984 in the Detroit metro area. This photo is from a Halloween assembly after-party. Now that’s old school!
