Lost My Pass Again

November 6th, 2013 at 06:39 am

Well, as you all know, I wasn't in a very good state of mind yesterday -- tired, sick, grieving -- so I wasn't alert, and I left my monthly pass on the train. And I didn't realize it until it was too late to check Lost & Found. (The train had left).

I actually wasn't too upset -- in the whole scheme of things it didn't matter too much yesterday. Today I'm a little more upset. I had my business card on it, and I was hoping that I would have an email or a phone message this morning, but I do not. I called Lost & Found, and they said to check back later.

I have a sinking feeling I'm not going to get it back this time. Which will be a loss of $100. I'll just have to try to make it up in other ways, and write it off as one of those unavoidable emergencies. (Although it was certainly avoidable -- I just have to screw my head on tighter!)

So I spent $4.25 on a ticket home. I drove to work today.

While I was in the station I bought sympathy and birthday cards -- $12.

I also bought a 7-Up from the vending machine at work yesterday - $1.50. Just needed the bubbly. And this morning on the way to work I bought a bottle of water for $1 because I forgot to take some from home -- and I have to drink water with my Mucinex-D (which I'd already swallowed).

My cousins are talking about holding a service for my uncle later in the month. I heard this from my brother, and he didn't have all the details, but it sounds like the actual funeral and burial will be for the immediate family, and the service will be for everyone, including family members like me who have to travel a ways. Some of the possible dates are after Thanksgiving. I'll just go with the flow.

    maybe one of those icky badge necklace thingys would be the way to solve the train pass issue. Just wear it even if it doesn't look good.

    I have misplaced my bus pass at least 3 times the past month though found it each time. Never before in the past 3 years. Just getting a little older, less sharp and Frown but am training myself to always put it back in the same place in my purse NO MATTER HOW BUSY FULL MY HANDS ARE OR ANYTHING

    It is so uplifting to hear that there are honest people out there. Very glad you got your pass back.

    Happy your train pass was turned in. If your card is passed through an electronic reader, it may not be necessary to remove the card from your purse. Alternatively can you keep it on a lanyard attached to your handbag?

    Glad to hear it turned up!

    The tickets are supposed to be "on display" for the conductors when they come through. (There are special clips on the seat backs for this.) I've noticed that some people just pull them out when the conductor comes by and then put them away again. I'm going to become one of those people.

    Hooray! So glad someone was decent and turned it in. Now if you could find my watch for me....

    Smile I'll help you with your watch if you'll help me with my sunglasses!
