I have been known to lose things of late. A couple of years ago I lost my keys and they showed up months later thanks to Kroger. Months ago I left my wallet in a Starbucks, two hours away. Not things I am proud of, but it is what it is.
Yesterday my mom got a call from our local Walmart. They asked for me and told her that I had left an ID card at Walmart and they were keeping it in the pharmacy for me to come and get. We couldn’t figure out why they called her number or what it was that I had lost unknowingly.
Today, after work, I popped by Walmart. At the pharmacy I let them know that I had received a call saying I had lost an ID card. I went on to mention that I wasn’t sure what it was I had lost, that I wasn’t missing anything. The lady smiled at me and said:
“President Snow will not be happy.”
Uhhh, okay crazy Walmart pharmacy lady…think…think…think…Oh my gosh…
I had lost my Hunger Games ID card. My District 11 card of Panem fell out of my wallet when I was shopping. It was turned into the pharmacy where all the employees were trying to figure out what kind of ID card it was. The helpful crazy Walmart Pharmacy lady was a citizen of District 6. She said she wanted to help me out anyway and thought this was hilarious. They looked up my name and birthday in the pharmacy system and found my mom’s number as the last time I had used that pharmacy was eight years ago when I was pregnant with Elle and living with my parents after selling our house and waiting to move into our new one.
I told her my kids where going to love this story and they did!
