I would have saved $25...

...if I'd waited for the mail.

Today's mail delivery brought a welcome envelope from a Good Samaritan. It contained all of the cards and non-monetary artifacts that were in the pocket wallet I lost Sunday afternoon in the Bronx. Well, all except the button mixed in with my change. I'm not worried about that, the $20-30, or the very worn out green leather pocket wallet itself.

I'm delighted to have my driver's license back, and my verified and approved Library of Congress Reading Room card, too. The two credit cards have been cancelled for days, but I'm still grateful to have the physical objects in hand much as that makes no difference in terms of the security or usefulness of the information they contain.

Plus, I am once again a card-carrying SMOF. Win.

If I'd waited a few more hours, I could have avoided the $25 fee for the duplicate driver's license. So life goes. It really is down in the noise and I remain very aware of just how easy I had it compared to having my entire purse with full-sized wallet go missing, or other completely-possible scenarios. My thanks go out to the anonymous person who mailed my cards and kipple to me.

A relatively happy ending, as these things go.

oh well, but a good thing in all
The one time I ever lost a wallet we: were poorer than church mice, I had not a clue exactly what was in the wallet, it was a vintage leather wallet that I treasured and had been given by a friend who would get really ill soon after, and lost it while at the laundromat on a snowy December day.

The person who found it called me (i did have one of my business cards in the wallet) and, bravely, left it on their kitchen counter, in sight of their kitchen/back door. They lived really close to the laundromat. I tried to call out to thank them, but no one answered me. (J knew where I was going AND it was 30 years ago...they were apartments on the Plaza, you had to be fairly respectable to live in.)

Glad that there's a happy ending. And you know that the reason it showed up was because you'd spent the $25, right? :)

Yay! Probably the best ending to expect under the circumstances.
