My this post is especially for women who like to keep their important stuff at one place, very organised in their beloved hand bag everything sorted out, the makeup pouch, the phone, the keys and all their important cards. You name it and here it is, handed out from the well known corner of their bags.
Yesterday I ran into some bad luck , I forgot my bag in the metro and it was gone as soon the doors of metro were closed. With that one second, life changed, I was without my phone , my wallet with all my id cards and bank cards in it, no cash and without keys of my home. I stood there wondering, did it actually happened ? Is it just a bad dream ? I pinched myself, no it was real . What should I do …I first ran to the help desk at metro station, tried to call Metro Emergency Number and told the drivers of the last metro to check for my abandoned bag, no luck, the drivers didnt find anything. I rushed back home, with some remaining good luck that day I had my metro card in my pocket, my husband was still home to open the door for me, and then I tried calling my number from his phone but it was not reachable so you know the rest of the story, Some antisocial element must have picked up my bag.
First of all I blocked all my cards, then we had to change the locks of the house for the security reasons and thirdly went to police to get the report of loss done, without which I cannot apply for duplicate copy of my id cards .
My Lesson Learnt : Never ever keep all your important things at one place , try to put few in your jacket’s pockets like metro pass and phone and few in your jeans/pants ‘s pocket like your id card or carry a sling bag ( for all important things) if you have 2-3 bags to carry everyday like a laptop, lunch bag and your hand bag.
- I bought a new phone and I was thanking God that I never buy a very expensive phone for the kind of lost person I am, I better know myself.
- I slept early yesterday owing to the long day I had.
- I ate no lunch adding to my diet, didnt feel any hunger.
- I had a day off though I wouldn’t like to have ones like these.
- I passed one full day without being online .Can you believe that ?
P.S: For those of you who might be thinking what kind of irresponsible person I am to forget my bag , Shit happens !! , I was actually lost in reading a book, almost missed my stop and when I got down , forgot one of the 3 bags I was carrying and Come on peeps! it is after 10 years I have lost my bag again , actually last time it was stolen in 2007.
