I went to eat at taco bell and I left my 3ds and pokemon x inside my backpack at taco bell. I'm praying to God that they hang onto it in the back until I can come by and ask if they found it. If it's not there, I will cry.

True story! This is terrible!!! Has anything similar ever happened to anyone?

      The only time I lost something, was a Nokia 3310...10 years ago.
      I cried a lot, but the next day, a friend of mine found it at the exact same spot I lost it: At the Cash Desk of Halfords (half bicycle shop, half mobile shop).

      From that point, I became so careful of my stuff, I never lost anything at all since.

      I forgot my GBA at the eye doctor when I was 9, and when I went back she had the audacity to tell me I didn't, when I left it on her desk.

        I had this yo-yo I took everywhere with me, I loved it. It was wooden and had a hand painted duck on it. One time we just went in to town shopping and I lost it. I didn't even realise until we got home! So I made my parents drive all the way back and go in to every single shop we went in and look around. We never found it and I cried and cried and cried. Then I got the exact same one for my birthday. This was years ago by the way.

        Why would you take your DS into Taco Bell, anyway?

            That happened to me once. We were on a trip then we stopped at some restaurant and then I left my backpack and ALL OF MY GBA, DS AND 3DS CARTRIDGES were inside, they hung on to it and returned it to me, I was so happy that I cried. Oh and my GBA, NDS and 3DS were inside too.

            I turned on my Platinum on my NDS then I noticed that someone played the game. They did a good job on catching a lot of Pokemon for me.
            And thus, my story ends.

              I once let my GBA on the train when I visited my cousins in London.

              I left my Gameboy Advance in the dentist office waiting room once. Thankfully, it was still there when I went back an hour later to get it. Since then, I am careful about where I leave stuff.

              in 5th grade we took a school sponsored ski trip and i lost my gameboy color with pokemon silver in it, it was my first pokemon game ever and i was pretty devastated. i also left my wallet on the Metra train in Illinois, i was on my way to a tattoo shop and had $300 cash in it. 2 weeks later after calling the train depot every day they said they found it, but as you all probably guessed the cash had been... removed but they left the important stuff alone so it wasn't all bad.

              Never had it happen with a console, but I did lose a copy of Pearl in the car. This was before I had a bag to keep my DS games in, and I just had Diamond and Pearl with me, and I left my DS in the car with Diamond in it and Pearl on top. It was gone when we came back. Still don't know what happened, like if it fell through a crack in the seating or something. No clue. Oh well. I hate Pearl. But I have to maintain a perfect collection and I bought another copy the next day because I have no life.

              Hmm, never had it happen to consoles, but games definitely. I think I may have lost my Yellow version at school one day, and then I thought I lost my Emerald version one time at a rest stop. But now I can't find my Gen III games at all and I know they're in my room somewhere :(

              Lost my wallet at a Mall in New York once. Didn't get it back (surprise surprise). I believe that is the biggest thing I have lost somewhere in public though. I lied I've lost my mom's credit card at the mall recently how could I forget that.

              Oh, and my old phone at College. I'm sure if I asked the front desk it was possible they had it there or something but oh well. Doesn't matter now since that was years ago and I have a new (although needs to be replaced it's been two years) phone.

                I was at the mall with friends (< I'm not lying, k?), we watched the Thor movie, everything was fine. Then I had to go to H&M to buy the Super Mario Bros shirt I wanted, I was at the cash register, 'til I reached out to get my wallet and realized it was gone. I told the cashier to hold on a sec, so I went outta the store, looking all panicked. My friends asked me if I was done, so I explained the situation. We went searching for my wallet, and it turned out that it was at the movie theatre (the place where they keep lost stuff). My money was there, so was my I.D. I went to buy the shirt, and everything turned out just fine.

                I should check my pockets more often.

                I haven't left gaming consoles before but I've lost thousands of things before. Like the Sunday before Christmas I left my wallet at Chruch. The parish rectory 's receptionist called our house the day after to tell us but no one realized she called until Christmas eve cause no one was awake when she did. Then my dad check his messages on Christmas and found out why she called. Ahaha. Since the parish rectory and church was obviously closed on Christmas (Since you know to honor Jesus' birth and what not) I had to wait till we got home from visiting our aunt the next day to pick it up. To make things worse and more embarrassing we just had to get pulled over by cops on the way and I have my ID in wallet so I couldn't give it to them. XD I just had to give my name and trust they took my word for it. >__>

                I also lost my copy of Diamond in a hotel while on vacation in Atlanta. I didn't realize I lost it untill we got home. :( At least I was able to replace it two Christmases later in 2011. I'm one of the most irresponsible people ever.

                ...I was infamous in my high school for being the kid who could lose practically anything (and weasel his way out of any trouble and/or find it). I've lost cameras, phones, bags, you name it. And I've always found them in the end, though I do owe my friends my life, essentially haha.

                You and I have a lot in common then cause this essentially describes me in high school. And me now.

                in 10th grade I got my first cellphone, and the next day I lost it in my first period class. Turned out someone took it after I returned and the teacher didn't see it. :S

                Loooong time ago, when the Game Boy Advance used to cost like 200$, I forgot I left my GBA on the tray and when I went to throw out my garbage, I heard a loud 'THUG'. I thought to myself, wha.. what was that.

                Then in the car I realized I lost my GBA. I was scared about my dad's reaction since that thing cost a fortune, so I didn't tell him about it until we were home. We then went to McDonald's to ask the lady about checking their garbage because of my GBA but she said every 5-10 minutes they take out the garbage, but we are more than welcome to look for it in the back where they store all the garbage.

                When we entered, the room was full of bags. Probably like 50 huge garbage bags, so my dad was like 'uhhh... f*ck it' then we left ;~:

                  Great news! My brother called the taco bell for me. Turns out they found the backpack (with my 3ds inside) and said they'd hang onto it until I can pick it up.

                  I just picked it up today and I'm very relieved =) Ended up being a great day.

                  Congratulations! That's a good news =) Glad you got it back =)


                  As for the topic in question... I have only lost one mobile phone... Really old one and it was long time ago, though.
                  From that time I'm careful with my electronic devices. And I only lost earphones...
                  I hate losing things, though :/

                  I've never left it at like a restaurant or anything like that, but I have forgotten my 3ds on top of my car before and drove off. Needless to say it fell off in the middle of a busy street. Luckily it wasn't too damaged and still works.

                  I hope they have your 3ds!

                    First time I rode my bike to high school (years ago now) I lot my bike keys in English class and had to beg my stepdad to take some bolt cutters when he went out that night to get it back for me.

                    Few months after I left my brothers GBA Advanced (that old purple thing that was awkwardly shaped and hated the light) in the coach on a school trip, never told anybody and it was forever lost

                    things then seemed to be alrite until college when I left my back with everything in it in college
                    (Laptop, DS + Games, Phone and wallet) never saw any of that again either ... was mega bummed and got into so much trouble over that :/

                    yeah im fairly irresponsible now I live on my own and I worry that im going to lose my house keys or something :/
