Isn't that just the way it ALWAYS is!


I can't find my check card. I've looked high and low. I've looked for 7 straight days. I know that it is in the house...I remember Doug giving it back to me and I remember thinking, "I'll put this here so that I don't forget where it is." I forgot. So, yesterday I went to Jewel and had to write a check. They had to check my drivers license and have my phone number and the whole 9 yards. I was that person who holds up the grocery line at 6pm...you know the one who everybody hates and sends death rays through their eyes and body language...I was that person. So as I'm leaving Jewel I walk over the the TCF counter and tell the girls I need to cancel my card and get a new one, simple enough. I tell them, "I will probably find the stupid thing as soon as I do this, but hey, I've looked for 7 days...it's gone. They take care of the whole thing and I feel great! Problem solved! Then I drive home and walk in the door and Doug looks at me with a huge smile and says, "I found the check card!" Seriously, I hadn't even put the grocery bags down. Isn't that just how life always is!

Isn't that one of Murphy's Laws? I have two Driver's Licenses because of that! Good story!

That is so true! I know that sort of thing has happened to me several times. How is Wesley doing? We missed you yesterday!

Yes - that is ALWAYS the way it goes... Dave just did the exact same thing a month ago;)
