Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

Maybe you got lucky and just forgot about it?

Then again, is it lucky if you forget?

Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

Is it just a coincidence that Steve Jobs has just arrived in Basel the same time as your bike gets stolen? Hmmm?
He's an eco friendly person so his profile would seem to match your bike thief. Case solved!
By the way please put me as a suspect because of my avatar, but you might want to point the finger of suspiscion at David Cameron.

Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

On a similar night out last year two of my friends got their bags nicked. Luckily for one of them her purse fell out and was handed to the bar staff the other lost everything. The one who lost everything reported it to the police (was a rather expensive bag + contents) and got a case number so she managed to claim it on her insurance. The big downside was her keys + address were in the bag so all the locks in her building had to be changed. It turned into a rather expensive night out.

Have you asked the police? They would have sent you here, to the Fundbüro

Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

Had an "interesting" experience after a work apéro before Christmas. Drank quite a large quantity of red wine and took a bus ride into town with my boss to get the train home to Fribourg. Woke up next morning in bed with an obvious stonking hangover and tried to piece together the journey home...

Remember leaving work with boss
Don't remember the bus journey
Don't remember the train journey (thought I'd been on the local train, boss told me he saw me to the IC to Geneva )
Don't remember the bus/taxi or whatever in Fribourg
Don't remember getting undressed and into bed (wife informs me I could hardly stand and was completely comatose on the bed fully clothed)

I still to this day do not know how I didn't fall asleep on the train and wake up in Geneva, or how I managed to get a train/bus/taxi in Fribourg, and if it were the latter, how I managed to tell him where to go, or how I managed to pay.

All in all, a fun night

If you're drink was spiked then maybe you were screwed but just can't recall it.

Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

ok... as long as we are fessin' up and telling drunken stories....
.
last september me and a mate of mine took a long weekend down to the cottage in Cornwall that mrs. G and I own.

'cept we got there about an hour early and the woman that cleans for us wouldnt let us in !! ( my own bloody cottage mind you!! ) so there was nothing to do but go down the local pub for an hour or two.

8 or 9 pints later we left ( apparently )

the next morning I'm unpacking my bags ( which had somehow found their way inside the cottage ) and asked my mate if he knew where my shaving kit was
"in the bathroom"
how did it get there
"you put it there
I did
after dinner
dinner?
after saying hello to Gerry and Sue ( neighbours )
gerry?

I was as I believe the saying goes... rat'arsed

Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

Been there, done that - a long time ago though!

Ok, count yourself very lucky that those bits + perhaps your dignity where the only things you lost. We all know people who lost a lot more on a 'good' night out. Take care.

If you drink was spiked, you wouldn't remember any of being abuse... You probably weren't but you can't swear on it...

THAT would freak me out more than anything else...

Ok, this is especially for LiB.

A university friend when out one night drinking, finding himself the next morning, circa 6am, in the KFC trash dumpster, with absolutely no recollection on how he could of got there, or what transpired to get him there. No keys, wallet or other personal items on him. Apparently slept off his drunkeness most of the night there in the comfort of half eaten chicken bones, etc.

After realising where he was, he was grateful that they hadn't dumped out the trash during his stay, that the dumpster emptying occurred earlier in the week, yet was still full enough for him to climb out, that he hadn't much money in the wallet, and he didn't see anybody he knew on the way home. He was too embarrassed to go the police to explain his story.

Re: losing stuff on a bad, drunken night out!

Losing your bike might have been a blessing in disguise. If you were that drunk that you don't remember parts of the night you could injured yourself pretty badly if you had ridden your bike that night. I think the local police station might be your best bet. I once lost my violin at a bus stop when I was 11 at the Hauptbahnhof in Winterthur. Someone turned in the violin at the local police station. I got chewed out by my parents pretty badly, and had to pay a finder's fee out of my pocket money but I learned a lesson in the process. Good luck in any event.
