From creatingKing113, Tales From Retail:
So I work up front at my local grocery store. Our two main jobs are bagging and getting carts so I was on cart duty. I've cleaned out the corals pretty well and it was dying down so I go to get the carts inevitably strewn around the parking lot.
Now of course you're always going to get lost items once in a while. We just bring them in and drop them off at customer service. So as I'm heading up to one cart and see something inside I just think "Oh hey, someone lost something."
But as I get closer I realize that it's definitely not a bag or backpack per usual. No, in the cart was an, I'd say 2x1.5 ft painting of some little girls from the 20's-30's fully framed and everything. Picture what day your grandmother would have hanging in her home.
Anyways I'm not sure what to do with this thing since it's not the usual type of item we find, so I head in just to confirm with the front end manager,
"Um there's a fully framed painting in a cart out there. I wasn't sure if you wanted me to leave it or bring it in..."
"Sure bring it in."
So I walk back out, enter the store with this big painting under my arm, and we have a few laughs. We decided to just treat it like a lost item and I bring it to customer service. Assistants reaction was priceless when I showed her. No one has claimed it yet and I don't know what happened to it after that day. Maybe one of the managers took it home
