Recently I was in carpool line, waiting to drop Jake off. It seems the car in front of me had a reluctant little girl who didn't want to go to school that day. As is protocol, you wait in line, you don't try to jump ahead, race around the car to move up to another drop off spot. After all we are talking about kids, young children getting out of cars and walking into school. Anything could happen - the kid could chase after their car, drop something, step off the curb . . . anything.
Yesterday, we took the family to Studio Movie Grill to see Red Tails. It is a movie about the Tuskegee Airmen. While watching it, Jake became disinterested. He came and sat with me. He wanted to play with my phone but I moved it away. The movie ends and we head home. Approximately 7 hours later, I realize I don't have my phone. I am fairly certain I put it in my bag. AND of course, it is on vibrate from the movie. The boys and myself move from room to room. I am begging them to be extremely quiet, do you know how hard that is? I am getting stressed about not finding it. Stress does not make me a good mommy. I put everyone to bet and have resigned myself that it is not here. Maybe it is at the movies, NO, I am pretty sure I put it in my bag.
I call, and call, and call and as is customary for movie theatres, you go to voice mail. It was 11pm last night when my husband suggest I go to the theatre. Off I go. They were closing when I got there. I told the very first person I saw, "I left my phone here during the 11am showing. Can you show me where to find it?"
My faith is restored! Some kind person turned my phone in. It had been sitting in the manager's safe all afternoon. HALLELUJAH!!!! Finding this phone just saved me from having to buy another IPhone. What I didn't realize until this morning was, that I had left my credit card and license stuck in the back of the protector. I was blessed in so many ways. I am back on the people are good and kind and courteous train. Not to mention life long supporter of Studio Movie Grill - Royal Lane!!
