have you ever lost money, real money?

I feel sick! I went to the store this morning for a couple of things. I had a 20, 10 and a one dollar bill. My purchase was $11. I had all three bills in my hand. As I gave the cashier the $11 I must have dropped the twenty. Naturally it is gone. I'm upset because we are so short of money all the time and to lose $20 just makes me want to cry. Maybe it is not much to others, but $20 is a lot of money to me. I would not feel so bad if it were a few coins or even a dollar or maybe a five, but a twenty is too hard for us to come by these days. I just hope that who ever found it really needed money. Then maybe I wouldn't feel so bad. Has this ever happened to you?

I just found out the my husband lost $100. I am trying to not let it get me. We are pretty low on money too. Luckily it was extra money but we will be back to counting change again. I hope you will come across some money you forgot about. I am always wishing for this...lol

Now I feel a little better that I only lost $20. But now I have to go cash in some change cause I have to pay a bill and I am $15 short of what I need. Sigh. I have to keep thinking positive and hope there was a good reason for this. Gotta get better, right?

yes I agree we should not feel bad when we lost our some money.but we should made our mind and not to feel upset we should say ourself that this happened in my favour.

As they say what goes around comes around. I've had some good luck, now it's someone else's turn.
