Airport employee: Hello, Portland Airport, Lost and Found.
Lucas: Hello. I was a passenger on a SunCal Airlines flight yesterday and I think I left my keys on the plane.
Airport employee: I see. To claim the item, you have to fill out a claim form. What did you lose again? Some luggage? You’ll need your claim receipt to get your luggage.
Lucas: No, I lost some keys on the airplane. Keys. I think I left them on my seat. Is it possible to find out if anyone has turned them in to your office?
Airport employee: I don’t know. Can you describe them?
Lucas: Well, they’re on a key chain and there are eight keys on it, including a car key.
Airport employee: Was there anything distinctive about the key chain? You’ll need to prove ownership if you want to claim them.
Lucas: No, it’s a plain key ring. Maybe I should come down to the office to see if I can identify them. What happens to property that’s unclaimed?
Airport employee: We keep it for 30 days and then we dispose of it. Don’t worry. We don’t have a policy of finders, keepers. If you lost some luggage, it’ll turn up.
Lucas: No, I lost some keys! Keys! Never mind. I’m coming down right now.
Airport employee: That’s a good idea. It’s easier to pick up your lost luggage than for us to send it.
