My husband , the LOSER!

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

I am married to a ""Loser"".
Now don't get me wrong------This guy who I do love immensely, is a great person----but----He loses everything!
Well, really not everything----- mainly his wallet.
This has been a major hassle since the day I married him.

Once it happened when the children were small, and we were in Florida. In those days, a person carried traveller's cheques with them on vacation. We , or I should say, ""He"" , lost it all----which was no easy task to get replaced.

Usually the wallet is lost around home here. The odd part of all this, is that it can turn up , a few days later, in places I would never, in a million years have searched.
It can be in his car, under the seat---It has been known to be in his office , on a hook, or, as happened this morning, it could be under dog leashes hanging in the front hall.

I purchased a ""fanny pack type"" of wallet for him, thinking, that , if he tied this wallet onto his body, there would be less chance of it wandering off.
Ive never seen him wearing it however --- Ive seen him carrying it -in his hands, as he chats to someone, and there it is, dangling, ready to be put down in some abstract place once again.-

This morning started like any other day--until------the phone rang----
He was at work.
I heard, ""Guess what?""
(Ive learned , from years gone by, what these 2 little words mean)-I sat there motionless-
And then I heard those dreaded words again.-----""I've lost my wallet""

Now , I 've learned not to get alarmed----even though all his papers from birth to now are on the line, not to mention, money.
I decided not to panic (for the 400 millionth time)--
And sure enough, it did turn up in the house.

What would this guy do without me??
Some days I just give up!

Some days, it's hard for a gal to do what a gal has to do!!

    That is funny to read. I'm sure it's not so funny to live through. I would definitely panic. Mine is forgetful. He promises to do things and he has really good and sincere intentions.....but forgets all about it. Do you think that it could be wishful thinking? lol I haven't known him long enough yet to know for sure.

    My hubby has the regular type wallet.. two of them. One for each back pocket. One holds plastic cards and 'stuff' and the other has money and 'stuff'. He miss-places both, often. We find them in his shed, in a jacket he rarely wears.. you name it. I always ask him what he was doing, and where was he doing it? It's always found in the last place he LOOKS! emoticon emoticon
