I can understand forgetting to remove stuff from your pockets when you wash clothes or send them out to the dry cleaner. I have washed more than one of my flash drives over the years and have washed my wallet on more than one occasion.

A new survey conducted in the UK has found that over 9,000 flash drives are left in the pockets of clothing sent out for cleaning. Perhaps Ofcom should be checking the local laundry for all of those lost flash drives.
The warning here is to be sure that you check your pockets and encrypt data on flash drives. It is all too easy for data to end up in the wrong hands. Flash drives aren’t all that is left in pockets. Also reportedly, found at the dry cleaner in clothing are Rolex watches, keys, money, and an envelope with diamonds in it.
