How many umbrellas have you lost? Do you leave things at places and forget ?

I have a habit of checking things. Like checking to see if my mail gets drop in the mailbox, checking to see if I got everything from my mailbox, checking to see if I punched all the numbers depositing my checks, checking to see if I didn't forget anything, so I always look behind me. When I was in school, I got on other people's nerves because I always looked back to see if my locker was closed or if I didn't forget anything from my locker. It's a healthy habit because you very rarely lose things this way. Therefore, we very rarely lose our umbrellas in my family because I am always the one who's "checking". We only discard umbrellas when the wind breaks it or if it gets broken naturally.

If I will count all of the umbrellas that I had lost, I think the total would be hundreds. I keep on losing umbrellas and this is the reason why I do not want to bring any with me when i got I out. Anyway, when it's raining, I do not have any choice but to carry one with me. It's better than getting sick.

I've lost a lot of umbrellas in my lifetime. I can't really recall precisely how many though. I think it's because umbrellas are something that I rarely carry around with me, so I tend to forget I even have it around. :P I've forgotten mine in school, banks, supermarkets, everywhere! Luckily those umbrellas are all free. And we have more free umbrellas! lol...

Hello friend!(",) To tell the truth, it's too many to count. I guess, I lost one umbrella per year or more than that. Sometimes, I leave them in the jeepney and even in the classroom. Now, I have two umbrellas. I just hope it won't get lost because I keep on buying umbrella every year. Have a great day!(",)
