There’s nothing worse than losing a device that costs hundreds of dollars. A man named Juan experienced this while in the airport at Frankfurt, Germany. It’s okay though. The Reddit community was there to help.
Juan was playing his Nintnendo Switch at the airport, but on the bus ride to his gate, his Switch had fallen out of his bag. Upon discovering it was missing, he filed a lost-and-found report with the airport, and when he landed at his destination in Madrid, he decided to try the Nintendo Switch Reddit community. It was a longshot. He had nothing to lose.
He wrote, “I lost my Switch at Frankfurt International Airport. Please if you’re the driver of the bus, I’d be eternally grateful and bring you chocolates. I know this has 0,000001% possibility to work.”
Redditor XxPyRoxXMaNiAcxX responded to the post with a link to another post on the Switch thread, where Redditor Itchybun posted about finding a lost Switch and was trying to reunite it with its owner. It actually worked! After verifying that Juan was the owner of the Switch, they agreed to meet up in the new year so Itchybun could return the console to him. The power of Reddit to the rescue.
