While riding in Nova Scotia last summer, I stopped on the side of the road to sort out a problem with my GPS - a loose power connection.
Looking for something to shim the socket on the GPS with, I pulled out my wallet to get a piece of paper/cardboard. I either didn't put it back in my pocket, or didn't insert it in my (rear pants) pocket properly.
20-30 minutes later down the road in Digby while overlooking Digby Neck, for some reason I reached for my walltet and found it wasn't there. Took me a minute to remember pulling my wallet out at my last stop.
So I rode back there to the spot I stopped - no luck. Started riding slowly up the road, and lo and behold I found it on the shoulder, about 100 m away from where I stopped.
Interesting thing - a few assorted pieces of paper had fallen out and were scattered around. The cash that was in my wallet was no where to be found. I guess that someone saw it, picked it up, took the cash, and discarded it back on the shoulder. I was just extremely glad to find it, with driver's license and credit cards intact.
Had some similar luck a couple of weekends ago. Doing brakes on the car, had to use the special tool to remove the security lug nuts. After tightening the lug nuts, forgot to remove the tool from the nut. Found it a few hours later laying about 50 m down the street from my house - I had driven away with it on the wheel.
