    Work internet too slow for Search Associates,meh.
    Not a moan, but I think it is quaint that Search Associates actually care what secondary school I attended and it was boarding or not. That said, having attended boarding school I am not sure I would actually want to work in one

    My son lost his smart phone last night on the way home in a jeepney. Second time in a year. Fucking things are expensive. I guess shit happens...but twice?

    Maybe you need to teach him to not be complacent.
    I know you'll defend that, but the fact remains: Twice?

    ^No argument here. Just careless. I've told him repeatedly to put the phone in his backpack when riding a jeepney...obviously without it sinking in.

    What phone is it?

    Most manufacturers nowadayz have a find my mobile feature, where you can locate it on a map, get close then set the alarm ringing on it for 5 minutes so you can find it.

    He could also back it up so all his stuff on there will be sent to a cloud account and also erase all his stuff from the phone.

    I think all that stops working though as soon as they pull the sim card out?

    ^Tried most of that to no avail. I reckon sim card was out and tossed in minutes. Would like to buy him a $15 phone like mine, but he needs a decent one for school.

    ^Seems like they live on the phone and laptop getting assignments submitting assignments, coordinating projects with group mates and a number of other things.

    Got a break. Wife checked with service provider and we are due a new, free, smart phone as a customer loyalty promo deal. Saves me some $$$$$$$$$$$$

    Amazing Philippines! Guy called this AM; called my daughter. Found my son's phone on the side of the road. Didn't call earlier as he had to wait to find a charger before he could access the numbers in the phone. Wife is off to pick it up. Amazing!

    Nope. With the free one, now have a spare. Someone turning it in was not an outcome I had even considered.

    In conclusion, got the phone back. Guy wouldn't accept any money. Wife gave him a bottle of Chivas Regal; he was pleased. Son will call to thank once I give him his phone back.

    Good idea, then ground him for a week with no phone.
