Thankful



That I carry this bag instead of a purse...

For Elon giving me a lot of work...

For people being in a rush....
Let me explain....
I wanted soup for lunch today, so I left the state job early to go a mile or so down the road to the grocery store. I picked up my lunch and a few additional items, made my purchase, and left w/bags in hand. I stash my keys in the side pocket and had to put my bags down to get them. I got to my car, placed my bag and the grocery bags on my trunk, got the keys, opened my door, got in and drove off. Notice I didn't say grabbed my bags from off the trunk!
I parked my car at the job and reached for my phone (in my bag) so I could text Snookums and see how he was doing and that's when my dumbness donned on me. I think I made it back to the grocery store in 45 seconds, no joke! LOL! I go to the spot I parked and there's no bag. I asked the chick who was parked in front of me if she saw anybody around the place I parked. Nope! I asked the dude who was sleep in his car 2 spaces down if he saw something. Nope! I go in the store and ask costumer service if anyone turned in a bag. Nope!
At this point I felt the tears coming. My wallet, my new texts books (I study during breaks and at lunch), and my cell phone were gone. In my head I am thinking about the folks I got to call to get stuff replaced and to get my debit card froze (I don't carry the other plastic w/me). As I am driving out the lot I made a turn and noticed my bag thrown to the side in the grass! My bag must have come off the car the first time I made that turn.
The only way my bag could have ended up on the left side in the grass is if someone grabbed the bag and tossed it there! MANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN I stopped the car with people behind me and went to get my bag! Sure people honked and held their horn, but I didn't care, I was going to get my bag!
Fortunately everything was where I left it.

I am thankful that I carry this bag instead of a purse...because people expect valuables to be in purses.

I am thankful Elon gave me a lot of work...because on first glance in my bag all you see is text books and a spiral notebook.

I am thankful for people being in a rush....because if they had time to look in my bag they would have found my wallet and other items. Not that they would have been able to use anything cuz like I said, I was going to shut anything of value down, but still who wants to wait 2-3 weeks for new cards and what not.
In minutes I went from tears of sadness to tears of joy!
I am not thankful that blogger won't let me space properly! UGH!

Yeah, I'm going to need you to do better and maybe start taking some ginko biloba or doing some puzzles. LOL. Glad everything worked out.

Why is my verification word mangster? Ugh! I can't stand people that say "mane" and "mang" instead of man and mangster is like a horrible Ebonics abomination. Make it stop!

Ladynay said...

Jameil, Stupid blogger! Me too!

FD, I need myself to do better! I may actually have to try that ginko stuff because I am not functioning well at all.

I had a similar situation happen at work this week. Long story short, we were coming from our little party and I went to put some stuff up in the kitchen. I left a bag containing my phone, badge, and keys to my file cabinet(where I keep my purse locked up) on the counter. I think I realized it about an hour later. You should have seen me hightailing it back down the hall. LMAO Thankfully I don't work with thieves so it was right where my crazy butt left it.

That is such a horrible feeling to think or know you've lost something valuable. I'm glad your stuff was still in tact!
