Have you ever reached in your pocket to put on your gloves, only to find that you’ve lost one of the pair? Of course you have, nearly everyone has at some point in time lost at least one glove.

It’s more than likely that you were pretty upset about it, but would you search the web to find your missing half or would you just pick up a new pair of gloves?

I was surfing the web the other day when I came across the site One Cold Hand.com. It’s based in Pittsburgh and attempts to reunite lost gloves… for free. There are also a few other locations where this happens. New York City, for example.

I don’t know. If I lost a glove, I probably wouldn’t take the time to hunt it down. You can buy a pair of gloves for less than $1 these days. It’s a good idea, but I just don’t think it’s ever going to really kick off, even if it is free.

I mean, if it was cold enough that I needed to wear gloves and I lost when, obviously I’m looking to wear them right then and there. Knowing me, I’d stop in at the nearest store and pick up a new pair, just because I have poor circulation in my hands as it is.

I have enough to do without checking that website daily, in hopes that someone found my glove, mailed it to the site, posted it and then have them mail it to me. Honestly, I think it’s just too much work for a something so inexpensive.

  1. And meanwhile my glove is burried in my closet under a pile of shoes and hats. No one will ever find it there.

  2. Hmmm, it actually sounds rather pointless. Who would even do this anyway? Yes, its actually rather ridiculous. I wonder who would actually take the time to go looking for the glove anyway?

  3. I want to open up a site now, “One Cold Foot.”

    It could be for those that lost their shoes, and if it fails we could always turn it into a site for grooms that bail from their weddings!
