I don't have an answer for you, but I suppose since others are sharing their stories, I'll throw mine in here as well. It's long but bear with
To preface, I've never felt that anything particularly extraordinary has ever happened to me. My mind isn't in a higher state of elevation or
anything like that. No indigo kid. I'm just a regular person.
I am, however, very organized and I rarely lose things. I have a specific order and placement for almost everything of mine. I keep my license, debit
and credit cards in the same places in my wallet at all times, I hang my keys on a hook inside the living room door when I get in for the evening. My
shoes go in the same place each day, etc.
A few weeks ago I was out of town, visiting two states away. I've mailed things back and forth to the city I was staying, from my current location
and it normally takes about 2-5 days for a package or letter to arrive. This is important to the story.
I drove the 6 1/2 hours to my destination and checked into my hotel. I had the room reserved, and to check in I had to give them my credit card as
well as my photo identification. I specifically remember handing them all my info so they could check me in. They gave me back my cards as well as
room keys and I was off. Once I reached my room I put my things back in their designated areas in my wallet.
I was visiting the city for only 5 days, and on the second to last day I was there I tried to apply for something that required my license. I reached
into my wallet to get it and ...it was gone. I couldn't figure out what would have happened to it. I searched my car, and tore the room apart when I
got back to find it. It was no where to be found.
I was slightly worried about making the drive back home without my license as it was around a pretty notorious party holiday for the city I was in
(St. Patrick's Day) and road checks were everywhere. As soon as I got home I went to the DMV and got a new license as mine was set to expire in about
6 months time anyway. Although I was still confused as to where mine had gone.
Flash forward to around April 2nd. I'm going back to school this fall and needed some financial aid information I had stored away months earlier. I
go to our pantry, pull down a large plastic freezer bag, unzip it and start going through my documents. Inside was a small manila envelope that had
various things from highschool in it - my senior key, tassle, etc. Lo and behold, there was my license. I sat stunned for several minutes wondering
how on earth it would've ended up in this bag.
My mind immediately went to someone playing a prank on me. I'm always onto my family for losing things and being forgetful and I thought "I must
have lost my license, someone found it and mailed it to my house and they wanted to hide it from me." I approached them about it and they all had
the same astonished reaction to it. They swore they didn't do it, that it hadn't been mailed home at all, and they wouldn't have hidden it from me
and allowed me to pay $40.00 to get my new license if it had been a joke. I believe them.
I still don't know how it got in there. But I do know that I had it when I arrived to my destination. I used it to check into the hotel. I didn't
have it at least 1 day prior to leaving my location (out of a 5 day trip) and it somehow appeared in an envelope of things that I haven't opened or
messed with since HS graduation.
