forget

Forgetting stuff at the copy machine is one thing when you’re at work and everyone already knows about all your weird little obsessions (we’re looking at you, whoever’s making copies of horse-riding advertisements and Jell-o recipes), but it’s entirely different when you forget your stuff at a public copy machine. Someone might even take pictures and tweet them for the whole world to see!

Here are 11 such tweets from the convenience stores and workplaces of Japan.
