Ever lose your notes before a big test? Then perhaps you can sympathize with Aaron Siegel, owner of Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ. Deep in the midst of construction on his third Home Team on Williman Street, Siegel’s notebook containing 180 pages of notes about the new restaurant has gone missing.

Desperate to get it back, Siegel has put out a call tonight on Instagram asking for any information on the book’s whereabouts. Siegel writes, “Return this book to one of our stores or the construction site or wherever and I will cut you a check for $1,000 absolutely zero questions asked.”

Given the fact that Siegel says it’s “filled with the most boring crap you’ve ever read,” it doesn’t sound like whoever found it is picking up trade secrets. Which means the culprit must be some down on his luck writer looking for paper. Too bad the average composition book only has 200 pages. The poor schmuck who nicked it will never be able to write the Great American novel in 20 pages. So whoever you are, be a sport. Give the man back his book and you can buy all the composition books you want.
