51. 捡到别人丢了的东西

Off the top of my head, the first thing that comes to mind is the time I found a smartphone. It was an iPhone 4. Honestly, it might be the most expensive thing I’ve ever found.

I remember it was about two years ago. At the time, I was on a bus. It was so crowded. When I was going to get off the bus, I found a cellphone on the seat next to me. I guess the guy who sat there forgot to check his belongings284 before he left the bus, and his cellphone must have slipped out of his pocket285.

Anyway, I thought the guy must be very upset. So I gave the cellphone to the bus driver right away. He said he would put it in the lost and found of a police station. Since I was in a hurry286 to go somewhere else, I just let the driver handle it.

I don’t know if the phone has been returned to its owner, but I hope the guy has gotten it back.After all, an iPhone is very expensive. Besides, I was kind of happy that I was the one who found it.You know, not every finder would return it or submit it to the lost and found. Some of them might keep the phone for themselves.

285 slipped out of his pocket:从口袋里滑出来
