"A BLACKBERRY HAS BEEN LOST & FOUND" was the subject line for an email sent around the office. Some may have a quibble with that declaration. I do.
First of all, you put things that you find and aren't yours in the "lost and found." I guess technically someone lost their Blackberry (BB from here on out) and somebody found it and gave it to the person who sent this email out... so yes, it was lost and found. The ultimate goal is to have its status to be "lost and claimed." That's if you believe it was "lost" in the first place.
It's a BB - there's a better than average chance somebody threw it in frustration and decided not to go pick it up. It wouldn't be "lost" at that point, it would be "discarded." There's a big difference between the two. Things I value and can not find are "lost." Things I hate because they are caveman technology are "discarded" in the hopes our IT department gets the recurring hint and switch platforms.
There's a happy ending to the story (not really if you think about the person who has to use the piece of shit for a while longer before the company tanks) was sent in another email.
"THE BLACKBERRY HAS BEEN RETURNED TO ITS OWNER"
Because we needed to know that... Had I not been made aware of this, I would not have slept tonight.
