Went into REI it was Dark and Rainy. I had allot on my mind and wasn't feeling vey good. I while i was looking around I realized my u-lock was still in my back pocket,hence I forgot to lock it I ran out of the store and went to the pole where I left my bike and it was gone. asked looked around the area on foot for a while and asked around to no avail. Came back later with my friends bike and looked more also to no avail.
A good samaritan found it unlocked and took it for safekeeping; she posted to chainlink.org when she got home and the connection was made the following morning after the owner made this entry. It had been found found laying in the street around the corner in the next block south of REI.
