Would anyone else have found this a bit strange? I flew home from Schipol Airport yesterday. When I popped into the toilets before my flight I found a ladies' watch on the floor. It was quite an expensive one, I think - a Rotary. It wasn't damaged and the clasp had seemingly come loose. I waited about five minutes in case the owner came dashing back, but to no avail. I then spoke to a member of staff and he told me to take it to the airport information desk. I walked there - it's a big airport - and the woman on the counter simply held out her hand for it. I asked whether she was going to take my details and she shrugged and said "Why would I?" I explained that perhaps the watch's owner might like to let me know they'd got it back safely, and she just said "It doesn't work like that here." I insisted on leaving them anyway. If I'd lost an item like that I'd be keen to let the finder know I'd been reunited with it. Oh, and apparently items which aren't claimed become the property of the airport. It's not that I'm expecting a reward or anything, but it seems strange to me not to take the details of the finder so that they could perhaps find out that the person got her property back safely.
