Lost property

Post categories:

Vaughan | 12:14 UK time, Wednesday, 10 December 2008

A wedding dress, an antique typewriter and a wheelchair were other odd items of lost property mislaid on seats and in carriages by absent-minded passengers.

From a Telegraph news story about some of the items one rail operator has had left on its trains this year.

Yes, somebody left a wheelchair. Now obviously I'm hoping that this quote is referring to one of those hospital wheelchairs. But then my imagination gets rather carried away with me. It's unlikely that a wheelchair user would have popped off the train and forgotten to take their essential mobility aid with them, isn't it? So that raises the prospect of somebody perhaps bringing a new wheelchair out to a disabled person who then, well ... forgot it. Oops.
