Engagement Rings Found

The Lost & Found items are a mixed bag at Newark Airport. The things that end up being dumped in the storage space include engagement rings and jars of potable material. A tiny, gray room without many apertures houses these odds and ends of equipment. 

Mink coats, aviator shades, luxurious smartphones and flashy jewelry along with engagement rings make the list. The material objects are brought here and sometimes they are a surprising haul. Some of them are so precious that one wonders why the owners are so careless as to even take the chance of losing them. The day-to-day trinkets include leather belts, keys and electronic stuff.

Obviously people are sometimes a little careless. And in today’s multitasking society, the rush of events is exasperating. The haphazard behavior of Type A personalities is a breeding ground for slips of the tongue…and hand. 

Lost objects are not an uncommon occurrence. And they may be found too. Any item including engagement ring that has a cost price above $500 is transferred to a TSA store in Virginia. The rest of the gizmos and gadgets are pledged to an agency that gathers them every three months.

They add up to about 1500 pounds worth of items that no one comes forward to claim. The agency has given its telephone number so that anyone may make a claim on any item. But there is a proviso. The owned object must be described in detail before it can be given away to the possessor.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
