I realize that it was my carelessness that resulted in the loss of my cell phone. Putting my phone in the outside pocket of my really hip and cute, Fossil purse really wasn't a good idea.
I realize now that when I heard something fall during the movie that I should have worked a little harder looking around for what made that mysterious thud!
But in my defense, the floor of the movie theater is totally disgusting. A couple of gropes near my own feet was about all I could handle. Since my purse was zipped shut I really didn't think that the mysterious thud even came from me! So I went back to enjoying the movie.
It wasn't until about 30 minutes after the movie let out that the realizations of the mysterious thud came flying back at me like a ton of bricks! Sweet Niblets!
We came back to the theater to see if the phone had been turned in. It hadn't, and since another showing of Bolt was under way no one could go in a look for it!
The woman at customer service called for the usher who cleaned the Theater after our movie and I noticed that the teen wouldn't look me in the eye as I described my phone. He looked awfully guilty to me.
When they took down my information they had me write it on a piece of paper and the teen usher nervously scribbled the information on a separate piece of paper. That seemed really odd to me.
The next day they asked me to fill out the information in the lost and found log (why didn't they do that the day before??) Needless to say, the slip of paper I filled out was no where to be found! On a side note, it was kind of funny to see what people had lost in the various theaters!
Do you want to know worst thing about losing my cell phone is? It isn't the money or the fact I have to re-enter all those contacts. The worst thing is that if my daughter loses her phone I can hardly bitch at her for being careless. Reid even commented that I lost a cell phone before she did!!! Chalk one up for the Teenager!
So curses cell phone thief and cute purses! Ok, no curses on cute purses.......it wasn't the purses fault it has cute convenient outside pockets that beg for easy access items like cell phones and car keys!
