Having my wallet missing for almost a full day made me realize I should keep some cash in the house. I don’t normally have cash. I use debit for absolutely everything. I had to take my daughter to the doctor yesterday and I had to pay a $20 copay. The only cash I had in the house was the $100 I was given at the zoo. So I took $40 to get me through the day. I really don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t had that money. Don’t worry, I’ve already paid it back.
I couldn’t swing by the ATM because I didn’t have my debit card. I couldn’t go into the bank to get cash because I didn’t have ID. I had checks but most places ask for ID to accept a check. I do have a credit card in the house but it’s in my maiden name. Not that that mattered I guess since I didn’t have ID to prove my name one way or the other.
I’ve heard before that some people keep a mattress stash and I always wondered why. Seemed kinda silly to me. But I’ve learned my lesson. So please, everyone, keep a mattress stash!
