Semi random blurt #02

The day before yesterday, while minding my own business, I died a little on the inside from panic.

The incident occurred just half an hour before I was supposed to be at work. Before it happened everything was just normal. I was in a good mood, the cereals had been just the right amount of crunchy and I had a few minutes to just lie around before heading off to work. So to indulge in the laying around I decided to play some games on my phone, which was when the ball dropped.

I am sure that my whole being stopped for a few seconds, when I saw that my credit card was missing from the phone case. With eyes wide open I just starred at the “pocket” which was lacking in credit cards, my mind blank except for a building wail of terror, doom and panic.

When the wail finally took over my mind I started to realize all the problems this would cause.

  1. I didn’t have any cash on me nor could I take out some. My economical power would be zero if the card was gone.
  2. I didn’t have anything to eat at work and my plan was to buy something during lunch, which if we look to point 1 was impossible.
  3. If someone had stolen it I would probably be a lot poorer and I also wasn’t sure about where to call to “block”(?(there must be a better word/term for this)) the card from further usage.
  4. I needed to come up with a solution to all of these within 20 minutes.

Found on the interwebs, not my own creation

Shit hit the fan

Luckily I didn’t give in to panic… not totally at least. (I might have cried on the inside a little)

I managed to retread my steps from the day before and figure out where my credit card could have gone missing, a la Sherlock Holmes. Then I did a quick recon of the fridge and found some food for lunch, in case of card being lost forever. With some back up food and self calming I threw myself in to the car and raced to the only place where I could have logically lost it, the grocery store!

As you might have guessed, I got it back and even got to work on time. In the end, everything turned out better than expected.
