Had a bit of a scare yesterday at Costco.
The girls and I were in Spokane for our regular "city day" activities -- French lessons, grocery shopping, etc. At Costco I was fortunate to find a parking space fairly close to the building. The kids elected to stay in the car, so I left my purse with them and only brought my clutch-style wallet into the store.
I did my shopping, paid, and pushed the cart out to the car. Since my parking space was enviously close to the store, another car idled nearby, waiting for me to vacate the slot. I hastily unloaded my items into the vehicle, pushed the cart away, got into the car, and drove away.
It wasn't until ten minutes later, arriving at our next stop, that I realized I'd left my wallet in the Costco cart.
Immediately we went dashing back. The cart was not where I left it, so I fled into the store and inquired at the service desk. They directed me to a manager, who checked in the store office. After a knuckle-biting ten-minute wait while he searched through a lock box, he emerged with my wallet, intact and with nothing missing.
God bless whoever the honest person is who turned it in.
I decided it was time to clean out my wallet and take inventory just in case. Here's what I have:
• Idaho Concealed Carry permit
• Utah Concealed Carry permit
• Idaho driver's license
• HSLDA Membership card
• Inland Northwest Blood Center donor card
• WND press credentials
• Credit card
• Costco membership card
• Safeway store card (I seldom shop there, but they have the best bargain on Ivory dish soap)
(I'll also add our AAA card when it arrives since we just joined.)
I removed everything else extraneous. Might as well streamline.
Once again I thank God for honest people. They restore my faith in humanity.
