How NOT to steal a Sidekick!

From h_postmortemus, here's the delightful and ongoing saga of a Sidekick II that was left in a taxi, the finders' blatant refusal to return it, and the subsequent publicity and suffering visited upon them by the geek community at large. Amazing stuff.

Note to self: don't steal a Sidekick and then take pictures of myself with it!

I just can't believe this story. I mean, I believe it...but it's amazing to me how it's gone so far. ..I think it's stupendous!! Someone standing up for morals and moral objectivity. Even though there may be someone somewhere who considers me their moral antithesis (*ouch* btw), I can't imagine that too many people disagree with the basic I-learned-this-in-kindergarten "if it's not yours give it back" mentality. Spectacular. If I had the time to jump on the forum I would - thanks for linking it in your blog! I'll have to keep up with it...though I must admit I'm even having trouble keeping up with lots of things I love lately.

What a great child of the internet this story has become. Probably much better off than the child of that 16-year-old...*shakes head*

It's sad that she probably wants to keep it because it's the best toy she's ever had.
