Have you ever done something so boneheadedly stupid that you question that it was really you? Last Monday on the way to school I stopped at the ATM (at the bank located in the grocery store) to get cash for my trip this week. While on my trip I noticed that I did not have my bank card. I didn't think too much of it, but was kind of concerned that I left it visible in my car that was parked at the airport.
When I got back I looked in my car and it wasn't there. I still didn't think too much about it. Last night I looked all over my apartment for my bank card and could not find it. I took three deep breathes, decided I would look again in the morning. I looked this morning in my apartment and in the car. NO BANK CARD! I called the branch office and had a hold put on it. I inquired about the last few purchases....thankfully they were all mine. So, I ran my errands this morning. Come back home and look through the laundry again and everywhere I can think of for my bank card. No luck. I finally decide that this card is gone and there is nothing I can do about it.
I go to the branch office at the grocery store because it is still open. While talking to the teller, I let her know what happened and pointed at the ATM and said that was the last place I saw it. She says to me, "hold on one second before I cancel this card. We have a card in the back, let me check." She comes back out with my card!!! YEP, I left it in the ATM machine.
I am such a supreme dork sometimes for such an intelligent girl. I cannot believe that I left my bank card in an ATM machine!!! Especially since in order to do that, I left the machine active in my account for who knows how long. Either a really honest person noticed or it timed out.
Hmmm....what's my lesson -- SLOW DOWN, nothing is so important that you need to move that quickly through life????
