Ahh, the place in the sky where lost items go. But what if your wallet you'd moved on from many years ago had been living an afterlife this whole time.
Tim Burrows, a Guardian and Vice journalist, tweeted this week about having been contacted by a stranger who found his wallet at Reading Festival in 2003.
Whilst Tim probably was no longer missing it - new Oyster card and don't even need that Blockbuster membership card these days, suckers - it's good to know it was being put to good use.
The stranger who messaged him admitted that the wallet had been found in a ditch and before his friends handed it into lost and found they had taken £10 from it and started 'The Timothy Burrows Challenge' - a cider drinking competition they would go on to hold every year in his honour.
Tim posted a screenshot of their conversation in which the stranger admits:
"Haha I think my friends found it in a ditch near orange and yellow camp in 2003 if indeed it was yours, it was handed into the lost and found, but not before one of them "burrowed" a 10er out of it and bought as much white lightning as he could find... of course looking back on it, that was very childish and illegal but I always thought it would be nice to reach out and let you know that it went down as an annual tradition of cider drinking competitions named "The Timothy Burrows Challenge". Sorry to inform you so many years later, would happily restore karma by offering to pay the £10 back to its rightful owner... I fear now the number of Timothy Burrows I have messaged in my attempt to do this."
Ah the guilty tones of a busted man.
Despite the petty theft at hand Tim was chuffed. See, he literally said "chuffed"
