Michele in Jasper, Indiana says she doesn’t actually expect to see her digital camera again, “but I at least wanted to inflict some guilt on the person who took it.”

and yet I can’t help but wonder why someone left their digital camera out at the office.

I like how they also then left the USB cord out for them to rip…maybe it has a bell on the end.

Love that one! Hope that the thief sees it and fells like the asshole he/she is.

Um, I wonder if the bastard who took the camera also took and posted the pic of the sign.

I have lost my camera twice – once by leaving it in an airport shuttle in a dangerous neighborhood where if you lose something, you can kiss it goodbye; and once by leaving it in a taxicab while I was on vacation in Grenada. I never saw the airport one again (this was in February 2007) and I wondered what they thought of the pictures of my cats. I did get the Grenada one back (April 2003) and I was astonished by the pictures the cab driver’s family had taken – a camera was clearly a novelty to them!

Olivia, this is my neighbor..she left it at the office because she is in a key card entry position where the only people that have access are employee’s and cleaning crew…sometimes you think you know the people around you and trust that they wont steal from someone they see everyday. And yeah, us Jasper Catholics, all diaper and beer pics…probably even some mommy daddy porn That’ll teach ‘em!

I should think of something similar to put in my cubicle, for the bastard that stole my iPod at work, during lunch time. Seriously, I can’t even leave a stuffed toy… it’s been taken too!

This one time my friend was in town (NYC) from California. She had a brought another friend with her and we all went to party at a club. Friend of friend can’t find purse. I saw employee move purse. I tell her. She goes thru purse and says her camera was missing. We all search everywhere. Mood killed. “Typical for ghetto, criminal-filled, amoral New York City” vibe descends. Then the dumb bitch gets back to her hotel room to discover she left her camera there all along. No apology or acknowledgement of course. “Typical stupid California blonde” vibe ensued.

I had similar: I worked in a bar years ago and some woman customer decided her diamond earring had gone missing. I didn’t realise at the time, but she’d targeted me as the thief. The police were called and I was questioned (I still hadn’t cottoned on I was suspect!), etc. Obviously they had nothing to go on, but my boss told me that she’d called the police later that night to say she’d left it on her dressing table, actually, so not to worry. No apology for the slander, embarrasment, totally uncalled for accusation etc.

I hear ya on this one. People can be low.
Someone stole my digital camera off of my blind husband’s shoulder at the local museum. This was the day after a family reunion and my 1GB card with all the pics I hadn’t dumped was in it (along with the rechargeable batteries and backup memory card.)
I’m really hoping that the camera brings them a whole lot of joy and that reincarnation exists. If it does I hope in their next thousand lives they come back as bugs that get tortured by small children.
I know I’ll create the money to buy a new, even better camera sometime in the future. And the idea that my husband’s white cane made him a target just makes me ill.

My friend’s phone got taken in a computer lab and he left and note expecting to never see it again. And what do you know, it was returned!

Ummm you don’t need that exact USB to operate the camera….durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

No kidding – I was being a smart ass offering up for them to take that in ADDITION to the camera they had already stolen. DURRRR back at you.

Hahah I love the comment about the USB cable. This reminds me of an incident at my work — somebody “borrowed” a laptop power cable of mine for several months — it even had my name and address written on it. Several months later, I showed up at work and the cable was on my desk. I still don’t know who took it.

“Ummm you donâ€™t need that exact USB to operate the cameraâ€¦.durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.”
Actually, USB, alot of cameras have proprietary USB cables which are bitch and a half to replace, since you have to go to the manufacturer. Of course the dirty thief could always just get a card reader (prolly already does since they are built into everything nowadays) so they can transfer their pics. But the USB cable is nice to have just in case. And I just LOVE the level of guilt inflicted in this note; a level only a mother can really project!!!

Hmmm… did the thief come back for the USB cable?

What a cute little girl! That’s so crappy.. When I was a kid, someone snagged my dad’s camera while we were on vacation… in a colonial williamsburg candy shop of all places!!! I’m still mad about it. My dad is gone now and memories like that are things I’ll never get back.
