Dh has always had a problem with keeping up with his crap. When we first got married he would lose his check on Fridays because he stupidly put it in his back pocket. Then over the years he has lost his wallet several times and each time I have had to cancel and replace everything.
He started lose his keys on a weekly basis at work and at home. After all of this I told him he needs a designated area in the house where he put his wallet and keys at every time he walks in the house. This has worked for the past year.
Fast forward a few months ago and he lost his WEDDING RING!!! I was and am beyond pissed. He believes he lost it at work but has yet to replace it. And then last night he lost the key to his car.
Back story: 2 months ago he broke the black plastic piece on the key so you couldn't put it on a ring anymore. I told him he would have to go to the dealer to get a copy made. In the meantime he had been keeping the key in his wallet. Apparently he never went to get the key made and lost it between Monday night and last night.
Its going to cost around $260.00 to replace the key!! I'm so sick of wasting money because he keep losing things. What can I do or what can he do because I'm at my wits end with him and his absent mindedness. Update Dh found the missing key IN DA YARD! But since then he has misplaced his keys twice!!! Tonight at 1130pm he calls me from work and tell me he locked his keys in the car. I had to wake my 3 small kids up (including a newborn) and go out to his job 30 minutes away to unlock his door!!! I'm sooo sick of this. Every suggestion has been used.
