Where Is It?

We can all relate to that moment when we realize that we’ve lost something valuable. We pat our pockets, search through our bags and luggage. If you lost your phone, you would probably panic because it was so expensive and it had all your contacts. But losing a wallet is probably ten times worse…
Our wallets are seemingly endless inventory slots for things like pay stubs, driver’s license, credit cards, and more. But this can cause two major headaches. On one hand, you’re vulnerable to identity theft. On the other, you’re going to have to call and cancel each credit card and ask for a replacement. This is not only costly, but also time consuming. One man ought to know what a nightmare this is as he experienced it recently.
Hunter was on a flight to Las Vegas with his mom. They were heading to his sister’s wedding. But his wallet slipped out of his pocket and fell between the seats. It’s why he didn’t notice it when he stood up to leave the plane. Once he realized his wallet was missing, he reached out to Frontier Airlines. He hoped that someone had found it and handed it in. But no one did.

When you get up to leave the plane, it’s important to make sure you have everything, not just your carry-on luggage. Patting your pockets and checking to see that you have your wallet can spare you from the ordeal Hunter had to go through.
Life’s Little Curb Balls
Hunter no longer had his debit card, a signed paycheck for the amount of $400, the $60 in cash, or his ID. This was a learning experience for him, but everyone can sympathize with his predicament. After all, he’d just lost a lot of money, and the convenience of making any purchase he wanted. But then, life threw him another curb ball.
