    Talk about being freaked the fuck out!

    My blackberry has been missing since Saturday. I am on vacation this week so I didn't worry about it too bad when I couldn't find it Saturday morning, I have misplaced it before, you know it ends up being on the computer desk when I thought I left it on the entertainment center, that type of thing. I was busy all day Sunday so I didn't bother to look for it, then yesterday I ended up tearing my whole house apart trying to find it.

    I could not find it ANYWHERE and was freaking out, how was I going to explain to my boss that I had lost a company owned Blackberry, if not him, someone above him would get pissed and I'd get a letter in my file for sure.

    I called the security desk at work, I called the office, I called the Arby's where I got dinner Friday - it's no where, I tore my car apart, checked between the couch cushions, checked the kid's rooms, their toyboxes, moved the entertainment center away from the wall - everything - it was no where.

    I was really freaking bad, then my wife just happens to notice the liner under the couch is sagging a little bit when she was sitting across the room from it, almost on accident.

    I flipped the couch over, cut a small slit in the liner - and there's my Blackberry - along with a refrigerator magnet with a family picture on it and various other items we had been missing for a wile.

    I can't believe how relieved I am!

    Swallowed by the couch. I wonder what we would find if we cut ours open. My son likes to stick things in there. Glad you found it D_C I remember worrying about company property and the "letter in file" it sucks.

    I do that a lot with my wallet and keys. I am way too disorganized. I am glad you found it DC.

    I tried that - it was in it's holster in vibrate mode, and being in the bottom of the couch I couldn't hear it vibrate.

    Ah the wonderful couch. I lost my contacts two days before going on vacation. Thankfully I had another set and I blamed the dog for taking and hiding them somewhere. It wasn't until months later that we found them along with a tv remote and several other things under our couch.

    I thought I lost my WiFi connector for a second. I spent 20 minutes looking for it. Lo and Behold, it was ontop of my computer...where I thought I had left it.
