Scratch that, reverse it

They found my purse at Wal-Mart. Nothing missing. When I came to pick it up, Lost and Found had no explanation. That the purse was taken I have no doubt — it vanished together with the cart in the blink of an eye. Perhaps someone thought it was their cart, or their purse. Perhaps someone was playing a trick on me. Perhaps someone stole it, but had second thoughts. Perhaps this is just another weird incident in my life.

Anyway, I’m glad I don’t have to start replacing all my IDs and stuff.

    You’re lucky. Perhaps it was an employee who took it, then realized that it would be captured on security cameras, and when the manager realized that Walmart could get sued because of it, had it returned with everything in the hopes that you would forget about looking further.

    I’m just a tad bit cynical.

    You might still want to replace your credit cards, just in case someone got the numbers. I likely wouldn’t, but that’s what a prudent, non-lazy person might do in this situation.

    Glad you didn’t lose anything!

    I almost ‘stole’ a car identical to mine once – and many’s the time I’ve walked off with somebody else’s shopping cart. Hopefully, you just ran across someone as non-detail oriented as I am šŸ™‚

    Did you hear back about your shopping cart/purse thief?

    Oops, nevermind. I got the two posties mixed up!

    I am laughing out loud because a friend and I almost accidently stole a car also. We came out of a restaurant and got to her car and the auto door locks weren’t unlocking, but the key operated the manual door lock. So we got in and it wouldn’t start, but there had been recent battery problems so we had a friend come give us a jumpstart. While we were waiting for the battery to charge, my friend started looking at the personal effects inside the car and realized that it wasn’t her car. We made a mad dash before anyone could see us. Exact same make, model, color, everything. Just not the right car. I still roll on the floor laughing about that one.
    So maybe Meagan, just maybe, it was truly a mistake and someone was just ashamed to admit it. Fingers crossed for you that it was completely accidental.
