My Phone

I almost lost my iPhone 5 tonight.  I forgot it in the school's public bathroom, one door down from the Academic English department's main offices.  A student who worked in the main office found it.  The office is on the same floor as my office, across the hallway.  The student called my best friend, and left a message.  Then my best friend called back, and my phone vibrated in the drawer.  Another instructor heard my phone when she was in the room and picked it up.  I happened to be in the other room, so the instructor came over and asked me where my phone was.  Feeling so grateful.  Must have been a crazy week.

Just the other day one of my students left her phone (not a smart phone) in my classroom, and someone found it, then left a note.  I saw the note and gave it back to my student.  She was super grateful too.
