I’m not going to draw this story out. The basic facts are shocking enough.
Went to donate a big pile of clothes to Goodwill.
Drove to get coffee three minutes away.
Noticed I didn’t have my purse and realized I left it at Goodwill (under the pile of clothes.)
Returned to Goodwill and asked politely if I had left it there.
They questioned what I was talking about. I described the bag and they said, “Oh, we thought you were donating it.”
MY PURSE! With my FULL wallet, makeup, sunglasses case, a CLICK bag, coupons, a bag of nuts, pens…
Wait, it gets better.
They CUT UP my ID and credit cards!!!! Into little tiny pieces!!!!
Within 5 minutes of me leaving my purse they had sorted through the whole thing, trashed a $35 lip gloss and $40 tube of perfume, and cut up my ID and credit cards. 5 minutes!!!!! Of course the $20 cash that was in my wallet was no where to be found. It didn’t even occur to them that I might return for all of my personal belongings.
I salvaged most of my stuff from the trash (yuck!) and proceeded to give them a piece of my mind. I couldn’t control myself. How stupid can you be?! But what can be done about it? Nothing. Unbelievable to me how ignorant and thoughtless people can be.
Anyway, Bank of America gave me a temporary debit card after a full-on identity check so I’m not stranded. But the ID. Ugh, that really hurts. Hopefully I can just order one online.
Hope your day is going better than mine.Tweet this!
