Lost, then Found – in One Day!
As the tram pulled away, however, I noticed that my socks were wet and that I had left my phone on the seat. Unbelievable!
Climbing back on the tram in the evening, I was in no mood to talk to strangers so, when I felt a tap on my shoulder, I was annoyed. But, when I turned around, a fellow-commuter was holding out my phone! It turns out he had recognised me from the morning commute! Only in Geneva can you ride the same exact tram, with the same exact person, twice in one day!
I was lucky enough to have my phone returned, but it still got me wondering what weird objects have been left on a tram. I was so curious about this that I called the Objet Trouvé office in Rive – where you should head, by the way, should you leave something behind. There was much debate, but they informed me that the weirdest things to pass through their lost-and-found office were a wheel of cheese, a blue wig, and even a set of false teeth!
Tip: In case you ever lose something on the tram, the objet trouvé office can be reached by calling 022.546.0900. They are open Monday to Friday, 7.30am-4pm. They will hold-on to your objects for 6 weeks, but they will automatically send your items back to you if there is already an address attached!
