So there I am in Michaels, glitter and coupon in hand ready waiting in a very long line. Why is it when I walked in the store there was no line but when I am ready to leave the line is super long? It's finally my turn to pay and the sweet girl rings me up and then says "her stuff is so expensive" I reply "yea" and hand her my FAB coupon and smile. She smiles and says "16.34 is your total. YES!
So I open my wallet to pay and this sick feeling comes over me. You know that moment where your heart skips a beat and you feel the wave of warmth spread over your cheeks.
Yea that feeling...there is a black spot in my wallet where my debit card should be. Panic, embarrassment and absolute defeat hits me like a ton of bricks.
I look up and say" my husband took my debit card out of my wallet" Yes he did and I remember at that very moment that I had walked in the bedroom to retrieve it from his wallet before I left the house and just like every mom I know was distracted by my daughter asking me "um bears mom" she wanted her bears out of her crib. Of course I got them for her and got her settled so she would not cry when I leave (she's doing the whole seperation thing right now) I of course then grabbed my jacket and left.
And to top it off I don't carry cash, I haven't for years. Bummer...I tell her "well I guess I'll have to come back" and she looks annoyed. You'd think one woman to another I'd get just a little understanding of my situation you know. I apologize for the trouble of course and ask for my FAB coupon back and walk out of the store. It's 8:35 and they close at 9 so I can't make it home and back before they close. Yes I will be going back tomorrow.
