Lost handphone

Hubby came home this evening in a fluster. He wouldn't talk to anyone the minute he stepped into the house but headed straight for the phone. In a rush, he said that he dropped his mobile. He had realized it upon alighting the bus and instinctively reached for it in the pouch. But it wasn't there! Having looked around the area where he was standing, he didn't have any luck locating it.

So when he made that phone call from home to his mobile, some guy picks it up (good news there, as most people who pick up phones switch them off and pocket them), and hubby identifies himself. And proceeds to ask guy who he was. He said he was from the Central Police Station. Hmm... wow, a kind soul in Singapore who actually hands over a mobile phone to the police? Miracle. Well, of course I wouldn't say that every one who picks up a phone is dishonest, but an honest person is in the minority.

So after dinner he went all the way to the Central Police Station, which is like 45mins away, and comes home without his mobile. What?! Meanwhile I've sent like 3 smses to him but they didn't go through. I was starting to worry. Oh no, maybe it was a trap. Where is he now? He should have gotten his phone by now (that was like almost 2hrs since he went out), why isn't it switched on?? All kinds of funny thoughts were going through my mind. Well, it seems the 'lost and found' section was closed. They only operate during office hours. Can you believe that?! All that time wasted. It was partly his fault but who is to know there is a special department to collect such stuff? I also started getting suspicious... hmmm... maybe the guy who answered the call wasn't really the police?? There is only one thing to do... wait for tomorrow to know the ending...

I hope he gets his hp! A few months back, I left my hp in a cab. About 10mins later when I alight from E cab, I realised it was missing and I gave a call to my number. E fone was off. It made me believe, no1 would ever return a hp that they found!

Then again, just last week, my sister in law left her very new Nokia fone in a cab, when I called her number...E taxi driver not only answered E call. He also send the fone back to our place! He refused to accept any money either coz he said "my sil must have left the fone coz she was bz trying to comfort her crying daughter" Such kind samaritans just makes E world a nicer place to live in doesn't it? :)
