On Monday I lost by 4 GB USB drive that has all of my work on it from my entire graduate program. Yes, I back up my work but not often enough and I hadn't for at least three months. When I realized it was gone Tuesday night, I searched and searched for it with no luck. I decided that I had probably left it at the library. All I could do now was hope that it was turned in. Yesterday morning I called the library and they told me they had about 15 USB drives turned in from the day before that had all been collected on Tuesday (see, I'm not the only one). Mine was not there. They take all lost and found items to the WILK on a daily basis.
So I called BYU lost and found and they had it. It was easy to find because I had a printed label with my name on it.
On my way over to pick it up, I had a telephone conversation with Ann Dee. She seemed almost happy that I had lost the drive because it proved that I wasn't as organized as I seem because I do lose things.
Ok - true, I do occasionally lose things but it did have my name clearly labeled on it which made the finding process much easier. In fact, if I hadn't realized I was missing the drive, I would have known about it after receiving this email below (it came to me on Wed afternoon).
