You know what I can't figure out? How is it that all these stupid neanderthal mafia guys can be so good at crime, and smart guys like us can suck so badly at it. - "Office Space"
The Galvin Opinion has fans, minions, and sycophants spread across our fair land and around the globe. The enterprising bunch has a canny knack for finding delicious morsels of info for the hungry masses. One of them came across this golden nugget at a Starbucks in Georgetown.
Whoever is the poor fellow that wrote this little note, below, must be a stressed out guy. I hope he finds what he's looking for! Can anyone help him out?! Anyone?
LOST: Really important papers, Really important
Hey, I was here several months ago with a few papers. Perhaps some of you saw me walk in here with them stuffed in my pants and socks. There were only a few pages, about 40 to 50, that I had with me that day. If you have a hard time remembering, I was the sloppy looking guy in the corner writing feverishly. I had lots of erasers, white-out, and black markers, too. Anyway, I went through a lot of grief to get these papers for my old boss. They sort of make him look really bad for not paying attention to some important stuff (long story). My former boss asked me to do a favor for him and hold on to these papers but I think I accidentally discarded them here, at this Starbucks. I've been auditioning for a job with another guy who my boss's wife really hates. Needless to say, I lost any chance of the new job because I can't find these papers. So, these papers are like really important. Everyone's mad at me. My old boss's wife said she knew I'd screw up sometime but didn't think I would be this sloppy about it. Man, she scares me. Anyway, if anyone finds these papers please call 1-866-272-6272. That's not my number because these papers are not even mine! So, as you can see, I'm in serious trouble. Actually, on second thought, you should call me. There is a reward. Whoever finds these papers will get tix to a really cool show. I promise, it'll be hilarious. By the way, if it's any help, the papers have coffee stains on them. Thanks.
Wow, I hope the dude finds these papers. His old boss sounds like a real jerk, huh? So, if anyone can help out Mr. Sloppy, you know what to do! In case you need more info, check out the following sources...

Another minion from the woodwork says copies of this "lost and found" plea are in Starbucks all over D.C. Man, this guy's desperate for those documents!
