I sent this email to my department after finding a mislaid flash drive last week.

I found a Flash/USB memory stick in the Storm Scanner on the 2nd floor. I'm sure someone is missing it/their data. It's safe; you just have to show up and claim it.
Moments after the mail went out, my boss walks into the lab and asks me and coworker if either of us is missing a flash drive.
