What is the wierdest place you ever eventually found something you lost?

Asked by mowens (8403points) November 25th, 2009

I lost my cell phone once… couldn’t find it anywhere. I was walking all over the house calling it trying to find it. Finally I gave up. Went to the kitchen for some food, and my phone was in the fridge. The thing is insulated so well, I couldn’t hear the phone on the outside.

So my question:
What is the weirdest or funniest place you ever eventually ended up finding something that you lost?

My mother once found her glasses in the frizzer freezer.

I’m trying to remember a more personal story but I can’t just now.

@sebastian_von_tulu Any excuse to say frizzer is welcome.

I found a locket that is very important to me underneath my spare tire in the trunk of my car. I was puzzled about that one for days. I don’t know if this counts but I was taking out my contacts last night and I thought it fell to the floor I searched everywhere on my hands and knees for about 10 minutes looking for it. Then I started to wonder why I could still see so well…I still had them in the whole time!

the fridge… (my wallet, I left it in the butter compartment behind a tin of evaporated milk)

It sounds like the refrigerator & the frizzer are popular places to put things.

My cellphone and lipstick in the driveway after shovelling snow away. Lipstick was fine, cellphone not so much.

I once lost an ugly green clog I had and found it when the dog returned it from his hidey-hole under the deck. It was too ugly for his treasure trove, I guess.

I found my lost ring, a gold ring set with a moonstone, inside a brand new carpet I had just unrolled and put down. The ring had been gone for seven months.

Wow, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one who leaves random objects like car keys and cell phones in the fridge!

I lost my pencil for 4 periods today I went to fix my hair and there it was! I looked like an idiot all day with a lime green pencil in my hair, no one even acknowledged it..?

About 9 months ago my 2 year old son came downstairs with my phone in 2 bits saying ‘uh’ as he indicated the phone and ‘uh’ as he indicated the battery. ‘But where is the back?’ I asked. ‘uh’ ... ‘uh’ was the response. I looked like a right noodle for the next 3 months until I got a new phone.

A few weeks ago I came into the living room and there it was on the settee. Very weird. I think my son may be an evil genius.

I found cooked turkey that I placed in a tupperware container for leftovers in my cupboard. Apparently my fiance was tired and forgot that turkey goes in the fridge.

My daughter lost a ring, and found it on a website that sells items confiscated by the police.

YARNLADY's avatar

I was folding my laundry when a long lost ring came flying at me out of thin air. It must have been in the folds of the clothes as I shook out the wrinkles prior to folding it.

sjmc1989's avatar

Wow I think @filmfann won!

filmfann's avatar

Yes, seriously. I won? Is there a prize?
