5. People leave their iPads and laptops at the

airport? Not very bright.

Clothing, though, is another matter. People are forever getting up and leaving jackets and stuff behind. I'm not sure how much of that gets picked up by the TSA, but I know I've seen stuff left on the belt after going through the Xray machines. People forget shit and leave it all over the place. I once left a parka in a restaurant. The weather warmed up while I was eating, the sun was shining, and I simply walked out without it. Left it on the coat hook, with all the other parkas there. It was old and wasn't my favorite one, so when I remembered that I left it, I didn't bother to go back. I'm sure it found a new owner. Now, my Eddie Bauer -50 parka I guard closely. I never leave it hanging. People have been known to take a different parka than they came in with in Minnesota. It's how they upgrade their winter gear, it seems.
