The hassles of a lost wallet

Well, Ali was out last night, and somehow managed to misplace his wallet somewhere between Wetherspoons in Motherwell, and my house.

Its not so much the money, I think there was a grand total of £10 in it, which I don’t really care about, its all the cards I had that bother me.

I have had to phone up and cancel my switch and bankcard as well as some store cards that I have, as well as also having to phone the DVLA and pay for a new photo card license (£19.99??? Daylight robbery for a piece of paper and plastic!), since that was in they’re as well.

I did originally think I was going to have to go get replacement student ID cards for my university, I just got a new one on Thursday morning ffs! Which would have been another £10, but luckily I found them in my cupboard.

For anyone who hasn’t lost bankcards before, it means you have to wait 6 – 7 working days for your replacement cards to arrive, so no money until then!

So what’s the moral of this story? Don’t take all your cards with you when you go out. It’s a bad idea, and causes far too much hassle if you lose your wallet. Ohh, and write down the phone numbers to report them as nicked, as well as the card number, it saves a lot of hassle when you’re hunting for them.
