I always comment on how the people that text us at 7-7-9-9-9 are at times…well…interesting. I kid you not, these were the first 2 texts that came in this morning:
MARK WAHLBERG was offered the part of Captain Kirk's dad in J.J. ABRAMS' first "Star Trek" movie, but he turned it down because he DIDN'T GET IT. He says, quote, "I tried to read the script, but I couldn't understand the words or dialogue or anything. Then I saw the movie and I was like, 'Holy [crap] . . . I probably wouldn't pass up an opportunity to work with J.J. again."
What about you? Finish this sentence: “I can’t believe I passed up on _____.” Here are some of the texts we got:
I can't believe I passed on... Working at Wizards of the Coast. I was applying for a menial position there when a religious friend pointed out the demon ic imagery on some of the Magic the Gathering cards. Idiot me, I went "Yeah, you're right." I've regretted it ever since. I LOVE gaming, and I could have worked there
When I was 18 my dad send an internet porn star into my bedroom and bet her 100 dollars that she couldn't sleep with me. The whole situation made me uncomfortable, so needless to say my dad won the bet.

A threesome with two girls just because I knew one was in love with me & I knew it was just a ploy to get me in bed. I should've done it anyway! ~Christine~
Great grandma turned down Boeing stock way early in the company's history.
Harold Walls is a garbage man in Delaware, and he lost his wallet while driving his route three years ago. He was planning to buy a new TV that night, so he was carrying $800 cash at the time. The town eventually auctioned off the truck he drove . . . and earlier this month, the new owner found the wallet under the seat and returned it, with the $800 still inside.
Based on this… What did you lose that you wish someone would return or what did you find, and did you return it? Here are the texts we got:
My grandfather used to work selling the contents of abandoned safety deposit boxes. He found a man's cremated remains and tracked down his family somewhere in Arizona. He called them up, and the man's wife answered the phone and burst into tears when she heard that he found the remains. Turns out, she had paid her daughter to fly up here and spread the remains in the puget sound. Instead, she put daddy in a safety deposit box and pocketed the cash. Grandpa never returned anything from those boxes ever again. -Mike in Kent
Found a bank envelope with 4000. Returned it to the bank because the guys receipt was in it. The guy ended up giving me 500 of it for returning it to him. But the temptation to keep it. I was 19 when I found it and broke.
My favorite pocket knife my wife got me years back I dropped it in a customers car when I was a mechanic. Called the customer and they said they found it and would bring it by. Never saw it again.
Hey guys. I'm streaming the show on the app while I work so hopefully the segment isn't too delayed. I had about $5000 worth of magic cards that I was collecting for about 10 years. Color binders and all. I got a roommate into the game and when he moved back to Texas all my cards were mysteriously gone. called him and he said he didn't have them. He did hire movers though. Don't know. Haven't bought a card since
My wife dropped her Coach wallet, with $300 in it, in the Safeway parking lot in Des Moines. One of their special employees found it and turned it in. I went back to find it and waited for her to get off work to give her a 20 spot. Apparently, they are not allowed to take tips on the clock.
My baseball glove! Had it since I was 12, used it in little league throughout high school and into college intramural softball. Some my roommates in college let some drunk chick borrow it while I was away working in Alaska for the summer. It's been missing since 2004, but had my name and phone number written on the inside. I still dream of the day my parents call to tell me that somebody found my glove.
My husband was going to a concert and lost his wallet. Someone at kisw found it and called him to come pick it up at your studio.
