For about the 5th time since Chistmas, I have lost my debit card...the ONLY one the bank will give me. I stopped for gas on base after before class this evening, paid for the gas, and got back in the car. After I left one base and went to another for class, I realized that I didn't have my card. I called the gas station/store and, NOPE! no one found it and turned it in.
It never fails...I ALWAYS lose my card a few weeks before P and I embark on a mission to another country. In 16 days, we are off to Spain. Hopefully the replacement card will be here and I won't have to travel with wads of cash stored everywhere, like I had to do while in Rome (I was still finding money 2 months after we got back). I don't care where you are, no one wants wet folded money from your shoe.
If the card doesn't arrive before we leave, I'll make sure I have the address and phone number to the US Consulate in Barcelona, in case I need to borrow a few bucks from someone. I might have to give them my 'Broke Single Parent/Disabled Vet' story. Then again, I shouldn't have to because, after all, we both work for Uncle LeRoy, which means I'm good for it.
