Crying Over Spillt Latte

Now, people, if you were by any chance contemplating leaving your wallet lying on a table in a proper East End boozer for oh, about five hours, while you yourself are not on the premises - well, don't.

Strange as it may sound, but when you dispatch a workmate via a frantic phone call to run back and retrieve it, it will not be there anymore.

Swedish Girl: Being stupid, so you don't have to!

Do you know the worst thing about losing your wallet?

Having your credit cards in the hands of happy-slapping delinquents, did you say? Losing pictures of your first dog/first baby/favourite tractor/pet iguana?

Wrong, wrong, wrong. It is losing your Cafe Nero loyalty card when you are just one stamp away from a free latte.

That latte has been alluringly dangled in front of me and then cruelly snatched away. The happy-slapping delinquent is probably dipping into it right now, the wee monkey. Maybe he even got a free biscotti, what do I know?

You can get stolen money back from your bank, you can just take another picture of that tractor, but you may never get that free latte again.

I'm sipping a cup of brown grit and boiling water just now if it's any consolation :-)

I'll buy you a latte if it helps. Swings and roundabouts and all that.

boy that sucks.
I thought was worse to loose my cell phone, but the loss of a latte? Yeah you win. Especially if it's a good latte.

Latte it go, man. Yeah, sure, it was crappuccino, but you've got to be espressoly strong at this time. Don't let the happy-slappers make a mochary of you.

I'm just... so sorry.

Man, that sucks. I lost my keys last Friday night. So frustrating. I got them back today though by a sheer stroke of luck. Maybe someone will mail you your wallet? Was your address in it? Hopefully your coffee card will be tucked safely inside.
