    first off, let me admit it, yes, im dumb. i knew better, yet i didnt do anything about it.

    i work at a gym. friday, my shift ended, and i go to work out. as always, i put my shit in a locker, and close the door. no lock. i know most of the people i see, i know their fucking kids, im too cheap to get another lock, blah blah blah. i come back..."hmm. somethings missing. my purse is missing. thats weird. fuck. this sucks. shit"

    so, here's a complete list of what was in my purse:
    .house keys
    .car keys
    .drivers license
    .health insurance card
    .atm card
    .medication
    .pay stubs w/ my social security number
    .gift cards
    .pens
    .chapstick
    .school library card
    .bank statements
    .doctors appointment cards
    .cell phone
    .$20-30
    .my boyfriends new out of state address

    here's what i get to do/have done:
    .file a police report
    .pay $20 and wait at the dmv for a new license
    .cancel my atm card
    .cancel my cell phone for $175 dollars unless i magically find the cell phone that was in my purse
    .wait for a new atm card in the mail so i can withdraw cash
    .borrow gas money
    .change my locks
    ."get a credit report every 3 months for the two years at least" i heard lots of credit reports fuck up your credit?
    .take care of all phone calls at home
    .wait a month to get medication my insurance covers
    .get two periods within a week

    i think thats all. the lady i gave my report to was freaking me out with stories about her in-laws dealing with identity theft 15 years after they got their shit stolen, and telling me how my identity will be used for illegal aliens and terrorists. sigh, and it was my favorite purse.

    advice? horror stories? happy stories? *personal insults? id rather have happy stories. ones that involve cell phones with a good sense of direction that found their way home.

    sorry rental. thats pretty shitty.

    i worry about this stuff at work.. even though our lockers are in the employee bathroom, i never put a lock on my locker, just throw my purse in there..and as of lately ive just been hanging my purse on the coat rack in there, cuz it's easier to go in and out of if i need to make a phonecall or get something out real quick..

    maybe put up fliers asking for someone to come forward with your shit, and promise a reward of some sort?

    that's the only thing i can think of.. people these days will do anything for money. :(

    there was a time when i didn't carry a bag; i just stuffed everything in my pockets.
    but as you get older, you got more stuff so you had to switch over to a bag.

    luckily, this hasn't happened to me yet. what a nightmare. i think the most annoying part
    is having to call places to replace/cancel the important stuff like ID and ATM cards...sorry rental...

    thats a good idea. i think someone did that at the gym before. i dont think they ever got it back though cause the signs stayed up for a long time. i dont think the person who stole my stuff was a regular member though. i think they were a hotel guest.

    slave. it mostly sucks that i have to pay $20 for another id and if i ever need to get something from the library that too. and of course hoping that they just wanted my small amount of cash and not all my personal info to sell.

    not that it helps, but you can get over ride supplies that the insurance covers, just for situatins like this. Get a new perscription for your doctor or if you have refills, go into the pharmacy and tell them about what happened, they will call your insurance company and get it over ridden, not that that was the biggest of your concerns, but hey, i figured i would try and help

    good luck with the rest.
