The other day I was using the rest room in a grocery store. When I reached over to get some toilet paper I noticed a dark blue leather folio phone case laying on top of the paper holder. The case had several slots on the back to hold charge cards, but the slots were empty.
I opened up the case to take a look at the phone, but it was locked with a pass code. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to try to find any contact information. This store doesn't have a Customer Service desk, so I decided to turn the phone in to the cashier.
However, if it was me backtracking to find a phone I misplaced somewhere, I would be even more frantic to not find it where I thought I had left it. So I got a length of paper towel from the holder and wrote that I had turned the phone in. I left the note in the exact same place the phone had been. That way if the person would know what the next step was.
