Becoming Debt Free in 2009

I’m a bit irritated and a bit relieved

Filed under: Uncategorized — ambercouric @ 9:35 pm

My son went to the grocery store and lost his wallet.  Before he could get home a lady called and said her daughter found the wallet.  My son went immediately back up to the store to get his wallet.  He had planned to give the lady the cash that was in the wallet but it was all gone. 

He didn’t have any other cash with him so he couldn’t give her a reward.  He only had about $20.  The thing is we don’t really know if the people who called took the cash or if someone else did.  We are very happy that his license and debit card were returned but wonder if the daughter took the cash or if someone else did.  He did open his wallet to give them the cash but it was gone.  He apologized and said he would love to have been able to give a reward.

I find it hard to believe that the person returning the wallet would take the money out first. 

At least it will teach him to be more careful.



  1. Oh, that is frustrating! But thankfully he was able to get the license and debit card back, not to mention that actual wallet. And at least it was only $20, but still it’s hard not to be irritated regardless. If nothing else, hopefully it taught your son to be more careful with his valuables. Sometimes it’s hard, but you have to chalk it up to a lesson learned.

  2. Hiya, in response to your question whether my debt is undergrad or professional school, it was undergrad.

  3. Hi there-how frustrating and disappointing. Yes, you have got the wallet back, but I too would be curious about the cash too. Sorry to hear this and I hope you still manage to have a nice weekend.

  4. I would not put blame on the person who returned the wallet having anything to do with the money missing. Too bad it was gone, but it is sure nice to not have to worry about stolen identity!! That is worth more than money nowadays, unfortunately!
