Have you ever lost your purse/ wallet?

Quite a funny story from me, but I once lost my purse on my last day doing work experience at a clothing store and got really upset by it. I was pretty sure I must have left it in the library in my break and couldn't find it anywhere. There wasn't actually much money in it but it contained my bus fare home and it was dark, and I was only about 15 and quite far away from home, plus it had never happened to me before and the fact I'd let it happen worried me because there could have been a lot of money inside. So anyway, just as I was going to give up and leave, I mentioned to one of the employees that it was in a carrier bag with my bottle of Ribena, to which she suddenly turned and went "Ribena?! There's a bag with Ribena in it in the fridge!" Lo and behold, inside the fridge was my purse! It had been there in the store the whole time! You should have seen my face! Apparently I had left it on the table in the staff room and when one of the workers was cleaning up in there they noticed the ribena and chucked the bag in the fridge without thinking. My fault for not locking it in my locker! But as you should expect the frige was the last place I would have expected my purse to be. So anyway, anyone ever lost their purse or wallet and did it ever get found?

Hi Thoseappleslooknice Well at least you found it I lost my purse one time and thank goodness there was no money in my wallet and at the time I didn't own a credit card it was many years ago however someone did turn it in to me its nice to know that there are honest people in the world who choose to do the right thing I make it a point to keep track of my purse when I go out
