    so I found this outside work

    I found this outside work in a patio table "I work in a hotel", looks used only once, and the rod looks like scrubbed the barrel instead of the brush.

    I say put it back, unless there is a lost and found at your work.

    I'd love to give it back, but I think it's to late now, our lost and found sucks, they will trash it.

    if I put it back it'll get trashed, thats how I got it in the first place I stopped someone from doing it

    Turn it into the hotel lost and found.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    well being that it's a hotel. if the person was a guest they may have already left. tell lost and found that you found it and leave your contact info. in case someone comes by looking for it.

    lost and found
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    ok I just had a talk with the lost and found guy I made sure it wont be trashed I'll get it back in 30 days if no one claims it.

    if you lost it in abq give them a call you have 30 days, I'll try to keep it a few more days if I get it back.

    Would anyone really come back for a cleaning kit, though? I'd assume few people would go through the hassle and would probably just buy another one, especially seeing as how this one wasn't used that much.

    What's your hotel L&F Policy? Check out with the department in charge but I'd be guessing 30 to 90 before you can claim it

    Probably not but they sure will ask the hotel to ship it. I do it all the time. I have a franchised Postnet store (packaging, shipping, printing). We get several calls weekly to pick up things to ship back. You'd be surprised at what people will pay to ship back stuff that you and I would just go back out and buy. They pay more in packaging and shipping than quite a bit of the stuff is worth.

    Go figure.
