Say you're flying on an international flight from New York to Iceland. The plane finally reaches its destination and you stumble out of the jet. You arrive at the hotel and realize - oh no - your iPad is gone.
Well this exact situation happened to Stepan Hruda, an app developer on his way to Keflavik. "I didn’t realize I lost the device until two days later, when swimming in a hot pool in the middle of nowhere in Northern Iceland," Hruda told the Daily Mail.
I'm sure you know the sinking feeling that comes with leaving a valuable gadget out where someone else might find it. You know you have to make the lost-and-found call, but you're already fully expecting you'll never see it again.
Hruda was at peace with losing his tablet, but then something happened that gave him "faith in humanity."
After calling the airline Icelandair from his hotel, the company happily settled Hruda's sinking feeling - his gadget had been found. Not only that, but the Icelandic Samaritans who found his phone left him a hilarious parting gift.
