Ashley refused to accept the fate of her AirPod - so took matters into her own hands.
Retailing at over £100, AirPods definitely fall into the "luxury" category.
Which makes the fact they're so small, so fiddly, so easily dropped or lost all the more annoying.
So you can't blame Ashley Mayer for refusing to accept the fate of one of her AirPods after it fell onto a train track.
Ashley could have just left it to its lonely existence, but a day after dropping the AirPod, and seeing "he" (as she refers to it as) had survived train after train passing over, decided to rescue him.
