Someone on ATS was doubting that authorities would find a brochure from a rafting resort in the bombers' backpacks. I was just saying on that site,
how much you can learn about people by looking through their bags.
So, people. What's in your wallet? Or purse/briefcase, etc. right now?
*turns around in tiny cubicle and pops open briefcase*
Here we have:
a phone directory of everyone at my organization
a copy of my taxes for 2004 ( I've filed an extension on my extension, and now they're due aug 15! And I STILL haven't done them)
A map of California (from my business trip last month)
A city map for my business contacts in California
Hand sanitizer (for use after shaking hands w/ sleazy sales reps)
Receipt for a medical procedure (hernia) in March, plus my paper war with my insurance company, concerning what they consider "outside-network
provider" on equipment they had previously declared to be "in-network . . ."
OOPS! documents I was supposed to run through the office shredder wound up in my briefcase!!! just a minute . . .
A photocopy of a coworker's driver's license, for the rental van in VA; that should have been turned in with my reciepts.
technical manual for software that is proprietary . . .
cellphone (with call notes!)
OOPS! Here's my resume and an interview appointment with another firm I did before the july 4 holiday *jumps up and heads for shredder*
correspondence with local college about the possibility of me serving as an adjunct professor in the fall.
bank receipts for my most recent paycheck
a floppy disk with . . . a "to do" list on it from just before last Christmas (jeez, what am I walking around with that for?)
Haw! a birthday card for my wife. . . I lost it and had to go buy another one instead. I wonder if I can save this one 'till next year. Hmmm. Guess
it's safe in my briefcase . . .
A copy of Robert's rules of order
A blank book I keep as a journal. (it's in my own constructed language, and not english)
See, my point is, I am a disorganized personality type. And just from rummaging through my briefcase, you've got a HEAP of information about where
I've been on various dates, and even with whom. So I don't think the brochure is that unlikely.
On my desk here at the office I have a brochure from an historic california landmark, from my recent trip . . .
