Under a Horrible Spell

I left my ATM card at an ATM machine last night!

I don’t know how it all happened. All I can recall was just upon arriving at the mall I decided to check the balance of my ATM so i head on to the nearest ATM machine. I cannot recall what happened next after I saw the balance. Since I forgot my cellphone at home that morning, I went to the nearest payphone to call hubby but was not able to talked to him i head on to the escalator down and waited for him outside the mall. In my mind was a repeated voice of the savings balance- 1Million! 1Million!. (hahah, now I can laugh about it!)

It was unusual for hubby to check on my wallet but good thing he was looking for something last night. He asked where was my ATM, that instant I knew I lost it. But recalling on what transpired really left me in deep awe. Is my memory really getting this bad? Or is it something of a terrible spell? Teary eyed I called the hotline and blocked the card. I was relieved to know the money was untouched (1Million! LOL).

As a result, I don’t have debit or credit cards in my wallet now. For security sake husband is keeping it all for me.

This could happen to anyone once in a while. That's why when I need to use the ATM, after my transaction is done, I will make sure to take a second glance at the card slot on the ATM machine and then to check my cardholder to make sure the card is inside.

here you go Mareng Niks.. we have the same problem too of being forgetful din.

Good thing, your 1M was still intact, I guess it was a wake up call for you Mare.. better take precaution next time. But at least nobody can withdraw it bec there is a PIN needed.

Birthday pala ni mother dearest last Saturday.. di ko alam.. Belated Happy Birthday to your nanay ha? Tell her from me.

Long time no hear.. But I am here.

Are you Okey? I am here just finish reading your stories. I am glad that you found out before something happen.

Me, I don't usually bring my wallet except my Driver licensed, Insurance ID and my keys. I don't used my Credit Card. I used cash in all my transactions in the store. Makakalimutin din ako. So, i left them in the house to be safe.

Oh better double check next time. Thank GOD your money is still intact.
