AirPods—Apple's signature wireless headphones—are super convenient.

There are no wires to get tangled, the sound is crystal clear and they feature the sleek, efficient design Apple is famous for.

They're also super expensive and super easy to lose.


New Yorker Ashley Mayer learned that the hard way when one of her AirPods fell onto the treacherous Manhattan subway tracks.

What followed was a saga for the ages.


Ashley thought all hope was lost, but the AirPod was in the same spot the next day.

Jumping onto the tracks wasn't an option.

So Mayer got resourceful.

The mission was on, with only a few hiccups.


Though the feat occurred off-camera, Mayer put a wad of duct tape at the end of the broom to retrieve the treasured AirPod.

It worked!

And though some were divided on whether she should put the subway AirPod back in her ear, she couldn't let her efforts be in vain.

Soon, Twitter showered her with congratulations.






Happy listening, Ashley. You deserve it.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
