then you forgot where you put it and have been searching for days on end and it is no where to be found.

  • Yes. :-( Do you have a "stack" of papers on the counter? Try going through that. Also, sometimes, papers will fall behind the desk, or in a drawer. (I've had that happen). Worse case scenario, call the source of the mail and ask them to resend.

    Good luck!

  • Yes, in fact one time I was cleaning off my desk and threw a bunch away. My son came down and asked where his bday card was? I looked everywhere. It had $50 in it. It was in the trash.

  • I probably have, LOL.

    The money thing, man... around Christmas time, I had photo Christmas cards made up and I took them to work to mail from there. Well one of them was one I was going to deliver to a friend of mine at work, so it just had her name on it, nothing else. Inside were 2 gift cards for her kids. Without thinking, I stuck it with the rest of the mail that our company sends out. Once I realized what I had done, our mail guy had already picked it up and it had been sent over to our shipping department (another building across town). Thank goodness I managed to get someone there and they found it and had it interofficed back to me. Talk about relief, LOL.
