“Oh no, where are my cards? Had I dropped them somewhere!?”
Having just finished with my medical appointment and about to leave the clinic, I noticed that my card booklet wasn’t in my pouch. I remember that I had placed it in there earlier.
I walked quickly back to the waiting area and saw someone sitting where I had been earlier but there was no booklet in sight. I could feel myself freaking out as that booklet contained my bank and ID cards. What should I do? …… what if someone found them? I don’t remember taking it out so how could I have dropped it?
I remember I had put it in the pouch earlier as I had wanted to use the teller machine. But could it be possible that I might have returned it to my bag after use? I couldn’t be certain at that moment but even as I thought about making a report on my lost cards, I knew I should go back to the office to check.
What a huge relief to see that it was indeed in my bag. I must have put it back in there without thinking. I was just so glad that it’s safe and sound and could breathe easy again.
I’m not sure why I seem to be getting so absent-minded lately. For the past couple of weeks, I have been misplacing my keys. First instance was the house keys which got lodged at the side of the sofa I had sat on. Then it was my work place keys which I had unknowingly brought home in my pocket and discovered missing in the office the next day. And just today, another set of misplaced drawer keys in my office which I had left in some other pocket.
“Where are my keys!?” ……. about to freak out again as I wouldn’t be able to get hold of my bag which contained my stuff. How would I be able to get home? Fortunately I had the presence of mind to retrace my steps and finally found those keys in another block where I had gone to earlier. Why do I keep losing my keys?
