Last week, I volunteered at Girlie Girl’s school for their annual Technology Fun Run. My job was to be one of the photographers which was pretty cool because they gave me a Sony Cybershot to use. I’ve been wanting to get one to replace my Casio Exlim for a while now and this was the perfect opportunity to test it out.
Today I received a call from the school saying that they’re missing a camera (they handed out 4 of them) and asked if I knew anything about it. I explained that I did return the camera I was using and that she probably remembered it because I had apologized for running their battery out. Yes, I took that many photos! Also, if they view the photos, my camera had tons of pictures of Girlie Girl.
She didn’t seem convinced and I started to get offended. I don’t blame her for being upset regarding the missing camera but she really shouldn’t speak to me like I’m guilty. The bad thing is that they never got the names of the photographers beforehand. All they did was hand out cameras to some of the volunteers that showed up that morning. What they should have done was number the cameras and have each volunteer sign-out for them.
I hope the camera turns up soon but I have a feeling it won’t. If someone accidentally took it home, wouldn’t they have noticed it by now?

weird…when I was in school you had to check out all the equipment…everything had a security tag with an ID number on it. you had to fill out enough paperwork to get a high security clearance at the White House…what gives with this place???
And I find it awefully RUDE of that person to still be accusing of you after you reminded her of running out the battery when you returned the camera…and if they HAD at least thought to find out who check out the cameras…they could figure out who hadn’t returned the camera by which kid’s photos were missing.
