My wife once lost our only working camcorder in the middle of a huge amusement park.
In her defense, it was a brand new camera. It was much smaller than our old one. (Why did I have to pick out the one camera that could so easily go unnoticed.)
Is there something you can do in advance to retrieve a lost camcorder?
Let’s start with some easy stuff.
• Engrave your phone number on the bottom of the camera.
The person who stumbles across your lost camera, may be honorable and just.
Other people, however, have been so mistreated and abused in their lives, that their human decency has been covered up by a hard-candy shell of maleficence.
To appeal to these people…
• Make a creative message that even the most jaded of human beings would have no choice but to do the right thing.
Now if a message like this doesn’t get somebody to pick up the phone, then they are truly bad people.
You can at least console in the knowledge that the Universe will eventually deal out some sweet karmic justice.
For those who have trouble seeing the picture, the example message is:
“Against my better judgement, I trusted this camera with my wife. If you’re reading this now, then you still have time. She hasn’t tracked you down yet. For the love of God, call me and return my camera before she finds you. Please. I know what she’s capable of.”
