  • I got robbed!

    I was getting my things together this afternoon so that I could be ready to go when the time came that I could leave for the evening. At the same time, the telephone rang and my girlfriend starts talking to me. About 1 minute later, I hear a knock on the door. It is two friends of my husbands from years ago.

    I know I had my wallet in my hand as I invited them in, I motioned for them to come in (still on the phone) and pointed toward the table for them to sit down. I placed my wallet WITH my cell phone and keys and moved them to the computer desk.

    I turned around to tell my friend I had to go and I hung up the phone. When I turn back around, I start talking with the boys and go into the kitchen for 1 minute and return.

    They stay for about 45 minutes and say they will come back again later when dh gets home from work. Ok, no problem I have to get my act together again so I can leave when son gets off the bus. BYE!!

    So they leave. I wait for about 5 minutes outside for son to get off the bus so I won't miss him (they won't let him off unless they see me) so I come in the house to get the keys, cell phone, wallet, etc.......NO WALLET!!

    I search and search and search some more. I asked the kids if one of them took it for a joke. My daughter wouldn't have hidden it for that long because shse was looking forward to going shopping and my son hadn't even been home so it couldn't have been him.

    WTF I am thinking. I search EVERYWHERE even in the fridge/freezer for goodness sake. I had put away a soda for my daughter so I thought maybe I had put it down by accident in there............NOPE.

    This whole time I am thinking I am just going crazy that I must have put it somewhere and just can't remember. I tore the house apart for about 3 hours and can't find it anywhere.

    It HAD TO BE one of those guys that came over. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. Funny thing is, I KNOW it is them if it isn't in my house because I had JUST walked in from the store about 3 minutes earlier and had my wallet in my hand.

    They never came back tonight either after they said they were coming back to see dh.

    So now I am wondering what to do about it.

    I already transferred all my money out of my account and noted the time that I noticed it gone so that I can go to the bank in the morning.

    I am going to tear my house apart one more time before I leave in the morning and hope that I end up finding it but I am afraid what is going to happen when they come back here.

    I am so sad.

        Flutterby, that is nasty. Friends of your DH. I think they did it. You said you haven't seen them in yrs plus coming back tonight & never did. They sound guilty to me. Ask DH if they were trustworthy friends when he hung out with them? Hope you cancelled the credit cards. Good luck trying to cancel a Capital One visa card, took me 4 months of calling, writing letters etc... for them to cancel that card. Discover cancels right away. I'm sorry that you have to go threw this.

          Yes!! Cancel your credit cards immediately. Also notify your bank asap. Most banks have an 800 number that you can reach 24 hours a day. Also think about identity fraud--you are now a good candidate.
          Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

            I think I'd call the friends and say something like, "If you return what you took, there's be no action taken. If not... I'm calling the police!!"

                One of my dearly departed husband's 'friends' stole my lap top. I made a new house rule that all so called 'friends' would have to be discussed before being permitted into the house. Kind of treating the situation as he was a teen, but honestly he had no common sense when it came to people.

                    That just TOTALLY sucks. You have to say something, I think.

                      DEFINITELY call the police and report this. They have their ways of looking into things and possibly might want to talk to or interview the "suspects". I should know, I work at a police department and you wouldn't believe the things that people do. If anything, contact the police just for the sake of having an official report for insurance purposes, etc. Never hurts to get things "documented".
                      The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

                      Faith is believing in advance what already makes sense in retrospect. O:-)
