Maybe a map should be next on your list

Just saw a Craigslist posting about a poor guy who lost his laptop.



Seriously, that SUCKS... If you have a decent laptop. My 4-year-old Dell refuses to find wireless and is slower than a tourist trying to walk down Michigan Ave, so that's a different story.

But what struck me with this guy's ad was not the fact that he lost a laptop. It's that he took a cab from Wacker & Clark to Clark & Lake. Observe:



Damn, and I thought I was lazy.

Hey, Lost Laptop Dude, maybe instead of a laptop, you can invest in a map. It's certainly cheaper, and could *probably* have prevented this entire incident in the first place, since it would clearly show you how Point A and Point B are, ya know, a block away from each other.

(Okay, now that I've made fun of the guy for pulling such an idiotic move, I feel kinda bad. I would flip my shit if I lost a good laptop! Even a sort-of good one. Maybe even my super shitty one, I don't know. All that certain is that I'm rubbing salt in his wound. I really can't stop myself from being a jackass, huh?)

What a drag. Makes me wonder what the whole story behind the cab ride and lost laptop really is. But whatever the story, that's a crappy day.

Clearly he's not all *there*

Wow he is either ridiculously lazy or bad with directions and mistaken in his cab route. LAZY!

FYI: sorry you couldn't join us out last night! I was looking forward to meeting you! Another time.

I would flip out if my laptop was lost, I would actually rather sacrifice my wallet than computer.

Maybe he needs to invest a little of time in google map?

I don't feel so lazy now. Sweet.

That's hilarious. Maybe it was my boss.

No wonder he forgot his bag. When he got in the cab he barely had time to close the door before he got out!!

My laptop recently got stolen, so, idiot and lazy as the dude may be, I feel for him.
