Top 10 places to lose your wallet
Posted on October 20 2015
No one likes to lose their wallet. With this in mind, we’ve collated a nostalgic Top 10 places to lose your wallet (a little like a John Cusack countdown in High Fidelity but without the break ups and probably not as cool).
#10 The boudoir
It doesn’t happen often but it does happen. Sheets, pillows, duvets and clothes can all decide to play hide and seek with your wallet. This normally happens in the morning when you’re running late for work.
#9 The roof of the family car
Supermarkets and driveways are the main culprits here. And it’s always a little too late when you realise your wallet or handbag is gone. Plus you know you’re having a really bad day when you lose a good coffee off the roof at the same time.
#8 The comfy couch
It’s no surprise this made the top 10. Stuff disappearing down the couch is one of life’s big mysteries. Remotes, money, phones and wallets love to sink into the soft upholstery just like you do after a long day.
#7 To the hands of a curious child
Children do (without bad intent) pick up wallets. Zips, shiny coins and delicious plastic cards are treasure to a little person. Tip: If your wallet has magically disappeared from your handbag or jacket pocket during a party, always talk to the kids first.
#6 The office refrigerator
Pick your lunch up, put your wallet down. Goodbye wallet. Hello yum. All us two-handed, absent-minded, hungry humans have done it once or a hundred times. It’s life.
#5 The washing machine
This is only pleasant if, and only if, you haven’t turned on the washing machine. The sound of coins or a metal zip may save your wallet from a complete right off. Our condolences to all wallets found after a high spin, hot wash.
#4 Last night’s bar
A good night and a lost wallet. Sound familiar? And no one wants to go back to the bar the next day and ask “I think I left my wallet here but I’m not sure exactly what happened after I was cutting shapes on the dancefloor?”.
#3 The dog house
The dog may be man’s best friend but when it comes to a wallet, they aren’t going to tell you they have it. It’s highly possible to find yours in the garden, its kennel or under the bed with your slippers.
#2 Your holiday destination
Whether it’s Cancun, Canada or Cambodia, it doesn’t matter where you go on vacation, the chances of you losing your wallet are high. Theft or forgetfulness all happens to the best of us as we relax our status and enjoy the time off.
#1 Your pocket or handbag
Yes it makes our number one as it is the obvious, most annoying place to lose a wallet. You look and look again and you can’t find it anywhere. It’s like finding your glasses on your head or your mobile in your hand. And worst of all, someone else normally finds it there for you. The shame.
