Wow holy shit, just had a shit fit thinking I lost my ipod at the gas station. I KNEW I didn't fucking lose it because for one, I never lose shit - especially a fucking 400 some odd dollar piece of technology; and two, I specifically unplugged it from the adapter and put it in my front pocket that I ALWAYS put it in, because it has a top flap and thus cannot fall out.
My bf was calling me a retard and shit, too. I drove back to the gas station and everything.
Turns out it was sitting camouflaged on my computer chair - right where I left it when I dropped my shit when I came in.
