Then I woke up Friday morning feeling sick. I won't go into details. It was not a pretty day.
I slept in until after noon on Saturday. Then when Nathaniel and I made a trip to the Redbox, I foolishly left my wallet in plain sight and Nathaniel thoughtlessly left the car unlocked. When we got back to the car we were greeted with a missing wallet and a stranger's pink phone on my car seat in exchange.
Lesson: we're dumb. And people suck -- people suck at thieving.
So then this happened:
We got to chat with the cops. One of the officers told me to say goodbye to the contents of my wallet, including my phone...I'd probably never see it again. Good news is, my wallets pretty boring and we were on the phone with the bank while the cops dusted our car's door handle.
Blah, blah, blah fast forward to Tuesday.
I was feeling slightly better, so I tried a new hairdo (for me) while I got ready for an interview:
On my way out the door to the interview Nathaniel's phone rang. It was one of the officers, telling us that someone had mailed the contents of my wallet to the police station. The package had everything short of the actual wallet, the spare change left on a Starbucks gift card, and a few ripped out checks.
After my interview, I went and said hello to the contents of my wallet.
Lesson: sometimes people aren't so sucky. Sometimes.
Maybe it was baby E all along?...
