I was thinking of buying something in the little inhouse store so took out my billfold to get out tw o nes. I just had the feeling I should count my money Okay I have three ones and a ten dollar bill. Uh oh no the ten dollar bill is missing. I had been saving that to put with some that I have in my bank to buy my son some Christmas gifts. But evidently some low life here decided that they needed my ten more than I did. Damn why does this season bring out the worst in people as well as the best?.I still do not know how someone got into my handbag as I keep it on my walker but someone did. ugh tis the season to thieve.

Isn't it possible you spent it already or hid it in a secret compartment? If someone took it why didn't they take the singles also?

I hope that you just misplaced it. If it was stolen, it must have been done while you were sleeping.

Are you sure you didn't put the ten dollar bill somewhere else? I hope that that might be the case and that some 'low life' didn't take advantage of you.

oh no I searched my handbag in all its nooks and cranies and no ten dollar bill. I too was hoping I might have put it in my locked drawer but no not there. I have a billfold with a number of pockets so I searched them too. This must have happened while I napped yesterd ay morning as the housekeeping aide was in our room while I was aslee p.

That's not exactly in the Christmas spirit. Think of it as a donation to charity, I suppose.

I hope it is found stuck somewhere odd, and I guess maybe time to hide money in the bra again

This happens all the time in these facilities and the thief often happens when one is asleep. I would recommend not keeping funds on you but if the facility keeps funds for resident's in the office I would keep my money there only taking out what you need when you are going out and upon return placing what wasn't used back in your account.

yes it happed once before and for 22 dollars a number of years back. What i will have to do from now on is put amnu bills of over ones in , my locked drawer in my bedside table. we are f orced to have a lockl and key on one draw to keeop ovedr the counter meds. Im alwa y so caref ul with my money but I forgot the itchy fingers here at holiday time. reporting the loss does not do any good. I think this ha ppen yesterday when IU l aid down for a n pa. I was so und asleeop my nandbag on my walker as usual. I did not check m y m oney thn bu t today darm.

@Hatley Why would they put your walkers out of sight? Isn't that dangerous? I'm just starting to walk without mine but I can tell by the end of the day it is a real stabilizer.

I'm sorry that happened to you. Hopefully, a CNA, if you have them there, didn't take it. What I like is when I find money that I have hidden, and forgot about!

I would complain and file some kind of complaint. They will keep doing it if they know they can get away with it. I know at work the people stealing is ridiculous.
