Losing your phone
You won’t believe what happened last weekend. I find it hard to believe myself: my phone got stolen! Things like that have happened to a lot of my friends before, but I always thought it would never happen to me since I always look after my things when I’m going out… but not last Friday.
Myself and three of my friends went to our favourite bar to have a few drinks after work. It was a fun night and we stayed out a little longer than expected. When we were leaving I wanted to grab my phone that I had put on the table, but I realized that it was not there any more. First I thought it might have fallen down onto the floor or perhaps that one of my friends had taken it as a joke, but after we checked the floor and all of our pockets, we had to come to terms with the fact that it was not there any more. Somebody had stolen it!
Not having a phone is really hard for me since I have all my music on my phone. I use it to take pictures, check my emails, browse the internet and of course, I have all my numbers stored in my phone – and nowhere else. So all the contacts are gone now.
The worst thing was not that my phone was stolen. The biggest problem was, that I had my ID, my credit cards and cash in my phone case. I had to report the theft to the police, which took me about 2 hours in the police station. I also had to get my SIM card and my credit card blocked so that nobody could use it. Last but not least, I have to go and get a new ID next week. Goodness knows how long that will take!
So much trouble just because of a few seconds of carelessness! Next time I go out, I will definitely keep an eye on my things.
