So last night I did laundry, and didn't have time to fold, so I grabbed some clothes out of the dryer this morning for work, and what do I see resting on the lint catcher but FI's work jump drive! Turns out I'd accidentally washed one of his pairs of jeans (don't know how I missed it. We're not nearly the same size). Normally this wouldn't be an issue except since I thought I was only washing my clothes I didn't check the pockets, thus, the jump drive on top of the lint filter. Felt so silly. So I was in a rush to get out because on top of my normal other morning routine tasks, I had to make sure the jump drive still worked and that the files were safe. Thankfully they seemed to be fine, but now I'm paranoid that thing is a ticking time bomb and will just randomly decide to fritz out.
I told him before I left and he said it was okay, but he was so sleepy he might not remember. Hopefully it really is okay! I'm confident the files are backed up somewhere else, but not necessarily somewhere convenient for him to access.
Hate when I do silly things like that.
