In the last 24 hours I have managed to lose my debit card, my cardigan and my purse! Thankfully, with a little effort and the power of great human beings, I have managed to reclaim the ALL! You’d never believe it but it’s true!
My card I got back instantly on Sunday even if I did have to muscle past security in Debenhams as they were closing – slight exaggeration there but I wanted to make it sound a bit less pathetic and a bit more Hollywood 😉.
My cardi was left in House of Fraser when I ran to get my card. But I had to wait until Monday to find out if it had been found. It had! Hurrah! Weirdly, I had left it in the shoe department which was handy as my lovely Micheal Kors loafers had split on the sole that morning (I digress I know) and the lady who gave me back my cardi tells me I might be able to get a refund/exchange if I can show a bank statement. I’ll be back again tomorrow I guess.
Finally the piece de resistance! The cherry on the cake! My purse.
I took my team to visit a client in Swindon. We got off the train, I walked to the barriers and realised my purse was nowhere to be found. I rushed to the help desk and they called the train staff who found it immediately, took it to Bristol and sent it back. By the time I came out of my client meeting my purse was back in Swindon waiting for me complete with my tickets to get home!
What have I learned?
- Don’t lend me things I’m likely to lose them!
- Things do really come in threes!
- There are good people out there. No really. There are!
