So I was over on the Twitter discussing the fact that Smoochy lost his wallet. No big deal, right? Cancel the debit and credit cards, replace your license and press on.
And then he told me that he also carried his SS card AND paper with our bank account numbers on them. *Slaps forehead and sighs.* I’m pretty sure that I told that dude ages ago to stop carrying all that stuff around. It wasn’t necessary and IF he ever lost his wallet – you know, like today – replacing what he had would be simple and we wouldn’t have to worry about people stealing our information.
I want to get upset about it, but really, what can I do? We’re going to cancel stuff, place an alert on our account and pray for the best.
That got me to thinking, I’m doing all this
fussing discussing with Smoochy, but I needed to inventory my wallet to see what I’m carrying around just in case this lost wallet thing is contagious.
So, I opened up my little happy yellow wallet, and this is what I found:
My DL, credit card, a book of stamps, and the following cards: library, insurance, SteinMart, Sallys, Walgreens, Sephora (I don’t even wear makeup!!!), Chuck E Cheese gift card, Smoothie King gift card, and a JC Penney gift card.
And I just called JCPenney to check the balance on that card – it’s zero, so my wallet is now one card lighter.
What are you carrying around? Are there things you should take out in case you lose your wallet? Do you have telephone numbers/account numbers in a separate place so that if you needed to call and cancel you
wouldn’t have to wake your wife up in the middle of the night for said information would able to access that information easily? If not, what are you waiting for – get your wallet together
