About a week or 10 days ago I went into the bank to sign some papers for a safety deposit box. I had a box prior to this in another financial institution but my long range plan is to move most of my financial stuff into one place. So I signed the papers, got the keys, and came home. After that it’s a blur.
I have been traveling more than usual, and perhaps I have more on my sieve-like mind, but my goodness I have to do better than this. I went to get the keys for the safety deposit box and they are nowhere to be found. What the heck is goin’ on?
Added to that was after I returned from my latest jaunt I realized I didn’t see my sunglasses when I unpacked. I wear glasses so sunglasses are only part of my repertoire if I’ve put contacts in. I took contacts on my trip, I was sure I took my sunglasses, but where are they now??
I went through my bags multiple times and on one final pass looking through my suitcase I found them. They were right in front of me, how could I possibly have missed them on the first couple looks? Go figure!
With that success under my belt I will take another look around, but I fear the keys were thrown out with the envelope that held the bank papers. It will only (ONLY!) cost me $50 (FIFTY bucks!!) to get the lock drilled and re-keyed. A hefty price, but perhaps a small price to pay in the big picture. With it comes the knowledge that not only do I feel dumb, but now I will feel poor as well.
