    "We pick it up and eventually find out whose phone it is,” he continued. “And we get a phone call from someone who's very nervous that they've lost their phone, and look whose phone it is."

    "This has never happened to me because I'm very reliable with my phone,” she explained. “But it must have slipped out of my purse, and I was panicking.”

    "I got back to my hotel, and I did the 'Find My iPhone,' and I'm seeing my phone on like 33rd Street, and I'm like, I'm never gonna get it back."
