'The DJ started up 5ive Megamix': This girl's story of how she lost her phone in Coppers is so good

This isn’t just any old lost phone.

LOSING YOUR PHONE (and all other worldly possessions) is a standard occurrence for some poor unfortunate most nights in Coppers.

If a search in lost property the next day is unsuccessful, you take the hit.

But one girl from Down who lost her phone on Saturday night can’t afford to lose it… because it’s her work phone. So she emailed Coppers with the story of how it went missing, and why she needs them to share her story on Facebook to get it back. She blames 5ive for this whole debacle:

Her full letter, published on the Coppers Facebook page yesterday, reads:

Dear Coppers,
As the usual Monday fear kicks in, I have an additional level of anxiety to factor into this mundane Monday. On Saturday night my friend and I paid your fine establishment an impromptu visit. As usual you made us more than welcome with the festival like fever. We drank and danced and drank some more whilst making many friends and some possible romantic connections.

It was at this point that the crucial moment occurred:

I happened to get chatting to a lovely guy, and we were exchanging numbers. However, I experienced some technical difficulties typing the correct number into my phone and handed it to this potential new suitor. And that’s when it happened, the DJ started up 5ive Megamix and I was gone. The dance floor was calling. Thus leaving behind my iPhone with this young gentleman…

Disaster… but it gets worse:

Now I’m in quite the predicament. I also use my phone for work and I can’t tell my work colleagues that I lost my phone in your fine establishment. As they already have raised eyebrows over a particular Christmas party incident in which I lost my shoes.

What a rollercoaster.

So she needed Coppers to intervene and get the word out there:

My request is that if you share my story, the guy in question might see this and if he has my phone can he drop it back to the scene of the incident?

She simply signed off as “Distressed Down Girl”, but we’re sure Coppers have her full details should this man with the extra phone come forward.

The plea for the missing phone is doing well on the Coppers Facebook page – with 300 likes overnight and counting. Could this bold strategy work out?

Failing that guy getting in touch, she might just have to come up with an excuse for work that doesn’t feature Coppers. Or 5ive for that matter.

Good luck to her.
