I am the Queen of Losing Things.

Friday I went to Washington Mutual to do two things: deposit money into Mary's account and open a new joint account with my sister. I used the WM ATM to withdraw money from my own account, then brought that money with a deposit slip to the teller. AFter that, I went to a New Accounts desk to open the new account.

Yesterday I discovered that I had lost that debit card. I seem to lose it regularly, every month almost. And this time, of course, it is just before the trip to New York. Not only that, but I kept delaying ordering new checks and discovered that I have no more for that same account. Which is my main account, my lifeblood, the place where my checks are deposited automatically.

The question then became: how do I deposit the refund checks I received in the mail the other day? And worse - how do I pay the rent? Which is due by 5:00 p.m. today? I thought of the other accounts I have and had to eliminate each one for different reasons. Finally I hit on the solution for the rent: I have a little program that prints checks. I had not thought it necessary to install it (it was a freebie that came with something else) but I kept it, thinking I might want it some day. Today was that day. I installed it and set it up so it would print the checks for that account, printed out three blank ones, and filled one in for the rent.

The other part is actually easy. I can deposit the checks at the bank tomorrow and get money back, enough money for the trip, actually. Considering the plane and hotel are paid already I shouldn't need a ton of money. Food and museums, really. I'll feel better tomorrow, though, when I have done this, when I have the money in my hot little hands.

I'm glad you found a way to pay your rent!

Did you (I fervently hope) lose your debit card in your house?

Oh, dear. Good luck finding it!

I am fairly certain I lost it at the bank. I think whenever I do two things in a row like that I have a greater chance of losing something in the process. I am going to go there to see if it was found. I can hope.

I called that bank today. IF they found the card they would have destroyed it. I think all banks have the same policy. So I have to go back to my regular bank and request yet another card. It gets really old. But at least there is no unusual activity in that account, no sign that some person in the criminal career path has gotten hold of it.
