Rixen & Kaul, whose almost entirely reliable product induces a potentially false sense of confidence in the security of one's pannier. Also myself for not noticing the sudden absence of the bag anywhere in the 8 miles between work and the front door here.

Wallet, phone -- with photos, especially of the smaller Sprocket's first 9 months,  work phone, wedding ring. Sad now.
Oh boy. That's awful. Really do hope it turns up.

Thanks all for the much-appreciated sympathy.

Can I take back my rant against Rixen & Kaul but double down on the one against myself? Turns out I looked everywhere on the ride back into the office, and around the bits of the office it could have been, and on the ride back home, everywhere except inside my locker. What a total divot.

Good to hear that faith in Rixen & Kaul is restored.   :thumbsup:

Now would be a good time to configure the phone(s) so you can track their location.  (Doesn't simply having a google account suffice these days?)

And back up your data...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I'm saying nowt else.  I lost a pannier for six months a couple of years back and finally found it in an old rucksack in the bottom of the wardrobe. No idea how it got there.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

I searched high and low for an allen key all summer.

Come the winter I found it, in the pocket of my winter jacket   :facepalm:

ebay bidder. Won by mistake. For a collection only thing while you're in a different country. Some buttons should be made harder to press.

British Airways for not only stiffing me £40 to put a bag in the hold but then losing that bag somewhere between London and Philadelphia. I also stupidly put my charger and cables in that bag.

And when I finally get through for an update...

They also managed to lose the missing bag report.

Who says the Americans don't do irony.

I suppose I should declare an underpant emergency and go shopping.

Replete with the softest of cotton underpants and the finest cables that only Apple can supply, I return to my room, and there, unannounced, is the bag in the middle of my room, waiting like a psychotic R2D2.

The mere expedient of a phone call or text would have saved BA the additional $157 I'll be submitting a claim for (well, I could return them when I'm back in Philly at the weekend, but I can't be arsed, and I wore the pants, and they didn't lie, they're very soft).

So that will be $17 for underpants and $140 for one apple cable and an adaptor?
