Oh I fecking hope not!
Yesterday saw me starting my week on an all time low.
And heres why...
My bag has been stolen out of my boot!
The car was as far as I am aware locked and the bag in question was my work bag,
Including my work laptop!
Trust me thats not a phone call you really want to be making to your boss, especially the day before your review!
SHIT... Is the only word I can use to describe just how I felt.
I began questioning if I had taken the bag out of the car? No
Had hubby moved it? No.
Was the car locked? Yes
Is the car showing signs of damage? No
So after exhausting all avenues I phoned the police who insisted on coming my home to inspect the car. I can understand why, I couldn't lie and say it was damaged when it wasn't.
I made the phone call to my boss who, to be fair was very good about it and I contacted head office too.
The other things that upset me were the fact that my diary was in the bag and I live by my diary for all my work info. Thankfully I was very good at transferring all this detail onto electronic calendars so I will still know where I should be when.
But I also kept all my receipts for claims in the diary which mount up to over £1,000. Thankfully after a tearful phone call to global expenses they calmed my nerves and said they would try to sort it for me. A little human kindness still exists thankfully.
The morale of the story?
Leave nothing your boot!
So please keep your fingers crossed that this isn't how my week will be, that my review will go ok today and that I will be able to sort my laptop via head office...
