Someone taped this to the wall of my laundry room. This dingy laundry room serves around 100 units and I find it kind of funny that these people were surprised that their unattended belongings would be taken. This is a big city and its every man for himself.
I am a student at Ball State University. A few weeks ago I noticed a bike lying on the ground, unattached to anything. It was a cool bike– vintage and in pretty good condition. Everyday for a week I would come to this area to lock up my bike and marvel that no one had taken what seemed to be an abandoned Huffy Santa Fe. I also lamented that someone would leave such a great bike out in the elements as if it were just a piece of trash. I decided to liberate the bike from its negligent owner. I rode it for about a month with the intention to give it back if anyone claimed it to be theirs. When I came out of my office yesterday, the bike-which unlike the owner, I had locked up-was gone. In its place was this somewhat incoherent and patronizing note. Notice that he (I assume by the handwriting it’s a guy) asks for his bike lock back, but does not indicate to me where I can deliver it.

I found this note attached to a tree while walking my dog. Maggie put some effort into this note, as it was crudely laminated using clear packing tape. Maybe next time, Maggie will think twice about leaving her ceramic cats unattended on a walking trail in the middle of the park!
I found this during the Kerrville Folk Festival. I waited until the festival had ended to snatch it off the message board (I thought it was so great, I couldn’t leave it behind to be thrown away with the other flyers). I hope this guy was reunited with his shirt. He sounds pretty upset.
