Recently my niece came over and I asked her where is your
purse?? Are you driving without a license? Nahh..she wasn’t but she just had it in her pants pocket instead of a wallet or a purse!
I have seen it in her coat, I have seen it in her car visor..HOW
does she keep track of the thing?…I have no idea!!!
I may be getting old but it is such a hassle to re-do a license… I have told her this. She is too young to know the thrill of going down there and telling them you "lost it" or "washed it in the laundry".. They charge now for copying a license or what they call re-issuing one. I was told by a cop once NOT to keep my license in with my checkbook and money either. If the guy gets your credit cards or money at least you still have your license and or ID… and your home address….they can’t go rob you at home or worse…
That was AFTER my whole life was stolen in a flea market…This kid was part of a ring of thieves and he reached into my shopping bag and got the wallet and everything in it….there is NO feeling on earth like….
WHERE IS MY WALLET or WHERE IS MY PURSE!!!
It hits you like a ton of bricks..I called the police..several others had them stolen that very day..these kids only wanted the money and by 6pm that day the postoffice called me to tell me that my wallet was found in a postal box near the flea market with several others. The entire wallet was untouched except that the money was gone..they had not found the hidden compartment I had extra money in..they did not take the credit cards which I was frantic about!!! I WAS LUCKY!!!
With age comes wisdom..or it should…we learn by our mistakes
I have had some bad ones….but I still carry my license separate from the money and cards like the cop told me…but not in my pocket!!! My girlfriend " A" keeps her money and all her contents in a bellypouch type purse attached to her person at all times.
I like that idea for some occasions..but I could not do it all the time. I prefer the over the shoulder thing myself.. it still keeps my arms free to do whatever I need doing..
I am G-U-I-L-T-Y though of leaving it in the cart at the store….slap me now…I know..I know…I attach it several times over and under with the
infant seat belt and then pile all the groceries on top of it…..I figure if they want it they will have to dig for it….I must try to wean myself from the cart thing but I have a few years left in this old life and maybe I will still continue to learn a few lessons along the way…
Guys are lucky they don’t ever worry about their walllets I bet…only when the pick pockets are in town!!! If they had to keep all the receipts and cell phones, address books, extra car keys, kids medicines and toys, pacifiers, checkbook and whole darn house in there then they would carry something I bet!!
WHAT DO YOU CARRY??? DO YOU KEEP YOUR CASH, CARDS AND LICENSE SEPARATE?
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND ! ! !
