I lost my wallet yesterday. I couldn’t find it last night.
This morning I woke up at 3am so that I could pull a 4:30am – 1pm shift. I normally work about 8am-5pm, but I have to be in Stillwater this afternoon at 3pm for my last day of scuba lessons.
At 4am I called the last place where I used my wallet, which was Cub Foods in Stillwater. A nice lady (especially nice for 4am) actually answered, but she told me I’d have to check back in with lost-and-found at 8am.
I left home at 4:05am and started driving to work. About a mile away from home I realized that I needed to turn around to pack a lunch since any lunch money I had would be in my lost wallet. I also snagged a roll of laundry quarters to pay for the $5.50 parking lot fee that I would need at the scuba lesson place.
I arrived at work at 4:45am and realized that my access badge was in my wallet. I sat in my car and played on my iPod and smartphone from 4:45am to 6am. At 6:00 my first coworker arrived and let me into the building.
At 8am I called Cub Foods – they have my wallet! Woo-hoo!
I’m going to get some breakfast to celebrate.
Enjoy some XKCD. This comic is like my morning – it’s the complicated way to get where you’re going.
