Throughout a really turbulent night time in Atlantic Metropolis with my greatest buddy Chris, he sadly left his pockets in an unmarked cab. Now the factor about Chris is he’s a dogged, dogged man.
And that doggedness, mixed with a number of hours of turning over each doable rock and making an attempt to find the precise cab that he left the pockets in, and the kindness of an on-duty transit officer and an sincere cabbie, resulted in him in the end getting his pockets again. One thing that the officer himself mentioned just about by no means occurs.

He instructed his story in an epic Twitter thread.
