We handle lost and found at our terminal, and regularly get I-Pads, laptops, cell phones, you name it, people get up and walk away leaving all sorts of stuff behind.
Found a laptop laying on a chair in our boarding area a couple of weeks ago, and just so happened to remember the lady and two kids that had been sitting there. I picked the laptop up and went looking for her. Found her at one of the airline counters, and holding her laptop behind my back, asked her if she had possibly forgotten something on the upper level. This goomba looks around and said, QUITE SERIOUSLY, "One of my kids?" Then realizing she had both kids with her, I showed her the laptop, and she said that, yes, it was hers. She just got up and walked away, leaving it sitting on the chair where anybody could have picked it up.
Driver's licenses, passports, BOARDING PASSES - HUH? (how you gonna get on the freakin' airplane without that) watches, assorted jewelry, jackets, other assorted pieces of clothing, keyrings (with keys), wallets, you name it, we find it.
Maybe they should put everything in checked luggage. (Well, except maybe for the boarding pass. They might need that.)

We arrested a guy who worked at our airport for stealing an Ipad that was left on the plane.
He wasn't home when we knocked. His wife let us in, showed us the Ipad, along with a bunch of other stolen property. Her husband told her that as part of his job, he was allowed to keep anything that was left on a plane. She believed himThe world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.
At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat
An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.
They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

I see where IF is coming from, though. I don't "blame the victim". But sometimes people are the victims of crime. Sometimes they're the victim of their own stupidity. I don't think this is the case, though. This is just another shining example of the uselessness of the TSA.
