Last day of work today for a week and a bit. We finished off the day with a couple of emergencies that walked in to the office at the very last moment. One fellow I could not help. My sore hand had been working hard on some fillings and I just did not think it was wise to start an extraction that I might not be able to finish.
So the end of the day was spent catching up on all the last minute shopping, some gifts, some groceries, filled the car with gas and printed off some pictures I need for gifts. Then I realized that I no longer had my VISA card. It was not in its customary slot in my wallet.
I don’t think there is a feeling that is much worse. I need that card when I travel in January. There would barely be time to replace it and there are all those accounts set up that I would have to remember to change. So, my mind began backtracking the events of my afternoon – when had I used it last, etc. And I realized I had l left it in the chipreader following one of my purchases. What were the chances of it still being there two hours later? I almost gave up before returning to the store. But, I thought I’d better at least give it a try.
So glad I did! The person minding the till was still on duty and there was my card. Wonder of wonders! Thank God it was safe. Made my day!
So, now there are just gifts to wrap, food to cook and a bit of relaxing to do.
