Every experience -no matter how painful or aggravating- should teach us something, right?
Well this weekend I learned the hard way - NEVER to put my purse down in a nightclub again.
Yes, I should have already known that. In fact, I used to ALWAYS leave my purse at home, carrying merely an ID, credit card and some cash in a pocket when going out. Alas, I have grown lax in recent months. I wanted to carry my camera around so I could take photos and blog about events, and of course there's the ever-important need for a stash of business cards and a cell phone on my person at all times, right?
Well yes, okay, but if I must carry these things, I guess I had better not be so stupid as to put my purse down!!!!!
A mistake I will not make again...
Among the lost items are:
ALL of my credit/debit cards
Not to mention stupid stuff like my favorite makeup items, business cards, library card, etc.
And, to add insult to injury, the Good Scientist's VIP card for the Lounge (where the theft took place) was in there as well, so now the THIEF is going to be VIP-ed!!!!
Of course the first thing the thief did was try to charge gasoline... fortunately my bank denied the charge since I cancelled all cards IMMEDIATELY. (Then they took a different card and successfully charged $700 worth of crap which I have yet to identify. It should be fun to see what this idiot bought.)
