"THESE WATCHES (140+) ARE THE CONTENTS OF THE LOST AND FOUND ROOM"

not-dead-definitely-not-dead-child-watches

Here is the protesting-too-much explanation for this bizarre collection of mementos, typed in menacing caps.

“HAVING WORKED FOR A PRIVATE SCHOOL THROUGH THE 80s UNTILL I RETIRED,MY SON THEN TAKING OVER THE CARETAKERS ROLE UNTILL THE SCHOOL CLOSED, THESE WATCHES (140+) ARE THE CONTENTS OF THE LOST AND FOUND ROOM,A FEW MAY DATE BACK TO THE 90s, SOME CHILDRENS WATCHES AS WELL AS A LARGE AMMOUNT OF GROWN UP ONES, THE SCHOOL HAD CHILDREN FROM A EARLY PREP SCHOOL AGE THROUGH TO SIXTH FORM SO THE AGE RANGE WAS GREAT, MANY OF THE QUARTZ WILL JUST NEED A BATTERY AS THEY WERE RUNNING WHEN HANDED IN, LOTS WERE LEFT BEHIND IN LOCKERS AT THE TERM ENDINGS”

Whatever you say, mate. Whatever you say.

*Pulls jumper sleeve over watch, turns, starts running*

Thanks to reader Hoopy for the submission.
