My daughter, a student at Bryn Mawr College, gave me a book purchased in a used bookstore. The book itself was a birthday gift, but the real gift came tucked inside, in the form of a long, hidden, multi-colored apologia, or “appolagy” as it is termed in the missive.
FOUND by Mark Teeple on a sidewalk table outside Moriarty’s Pub, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Cold rainy night, sampling local brews in Center City Philadelphia. Had to leave the pub several times to reload parking meter, each time I walk out and into the pub, I noticed this photo just laying on the patio table on the sidewalk. The wind never blew it away and it caught my eye several times. I remembered the FOUND site and decided to pick up the photo and submit it.
FOUND by Amanda Schoffstall in Shamokin, Pennsylvania
This sheet of paper was folded into a tiny square, lying in the parking lot of the bank where I work. I opened it up to make sure it didn’t contain any personal info like account numbers or whatever, and instead I discovered this note.
I run a small technology lab at a local university. I found this message left at my printer this morning. Somebody printed it last night and forgot to pick it up. The lab is open-use so there’s no way for me to know who printed it.
