Today, my phone was stolen. At first, I didn’t really believe it happened. I don’t think I was capable of processing the information. I did the searching and the calling and the asking but here I am at home still without my phone.
I’ve had the ups and downs of emotions today. It seriously blew my mind that someone would steal my phone. I know it was my fault because I left it on my desk and went to another room for about 45 minutes. I was careless and it cost me. I guess that’s what these situations are good for, I have now learned a lesson and lost a little faith in humanity.
So the deed is done. I will continue living and I will survive. No money was taken, no one was hurt, it could have been a lot worse. I realize now that this moment will eventually be a blip in my life. I will look back a year from now and laugh. Laugh at how much it upset me. Laugh at the silliness of a person stealing a phone worth maybe $100. You know what, I hope that person gets the money he/she needs and uses it to support him/herself. It’s a bummer that I had to be the one to lose but I still have a roof over my head and family and friends around the world who will always support me in my times of need. I don’t think that person has that.
If I don’t find the phone by Friday afternoon then I will call the phone company and deactivate it and go about purchasing a new one. In the meantime, I get to see what life is like without a phone, it could be interesting.
Note: if you try to call or text my phone, you won’t be able to get through. I had the phone suspended so nothing can go in or out. Although I may have some sympathy for the thief, I’m still going to make it hard for him/her to use it.
