"Yes dear," replied James.
"Yesterday I used my wallet at Macy's."
"Was it in your purse? You know I have told you many times not to take your wallet out of your purse or you'll lose it."
"I had an incident," I tried to explain.
"What, a mugger? Someone stole it?"
"No, I was leaving with my friend through the revolving exit door after we had made our purchases. My purse got caught and..."
"I'm calling the store maybe someone there found it."
"and I will call the credit card company to cancel your card. Don't worry, I'll get them to send you a new one."
"Oh, thank you James." © A.Nation
