Yesterday I wanted to go to the pub night at my school (SFU for those who don't know) but the line up was so incredibly long, and after waiting for what felt like an eternity a small group of my friends and i headed down to the local pub called the foggy dew (by Lougheed MAll) Well we danced the night away, and was having one of those fun "this night will live on forever in my memory" nights, when I find the horrible truth that my wallet had been stolen!!
NOt only that, but my make-up bag was confiscated, and for one bizarre reason or another so was a half a sub sandwich i bought earlier. I had to cancel my visa, my debit card, and i'll need to replace my U-Pass, student card and a ton of other things, never mind the cost, and all for what? ACtually the sad part is, for them not me, is that there was nothing but an 18 dollar pink, dirty wallet that they got out of it. I had no cash in teh wallet, i cancelled any cards that they could have possibly used, and if they get caught using my bus pass, it will get confiscated because my picture is on it. OH yah, and my drivers licence? i had to get that replaced anyways cos i changed addresses, and i never got to the driving office to change it yet.
Now you may be wondering why this isnt in lost and found section of the board, well i'm not asking anyone to keep their eyes peeled, I"m just saying, don't steel. The short term benefits for you are not worth the longterm short falls for me. I"m a reasonable person, I'm fairly compassionate, and I trusted that my stuff would'nt get taken, but I guess I learned my lesson to be a little more wary than i was before. Besides, you too might find yourself in a situation where you have someone's used makeup and absolutely no other useful cards, other than an optimum card, a safeway and a save-on-more points card. And even then I still get the credit for it :P
So there's my bittersweet night, i guess all in all i'm not too heartbroken, i had to get the new stuff anyways, but at the same time it's gonna be a pain in my ass and make a dent in my savings to replace all that stufF!
