Back in the year 2000, when I was at college, I had a mp3 player. It's this huge rectangular thing and it needs a very specific USB cord and charger cord to work it. One night, I fell asleep on a friend (sick at the time), and she left quietly. Since she did, my door was unlocked. I woke hours later, locked my door, and went back to sleep. The next day, I discovered that the cords were missing. Not the mp3 player and the cords, just the cords.
To this day, I still do not get it. Especially since there were a lot of better things there, like a full container of laundry soap, CDs, and 20 bucks in singles. *shakes head*
