It’s the Little Things

I did something kind of dumb today and I am writing about it to get it out of my system rather than let it fester.

After making a decent sandwich for lunch today, I packed my lunch bag with it and a few chocolate covered granola bars and headed off to the bus stop. After getting off the bus, I was having a bit of a struggle with how my backpack was packed.  While moving stuff around, I guess, I dropped my lunch bag from it.  I didn’t notice it and nobody around me told me that.  I arrived at work with no lunch.

I wasn’t particularly sad about losing the lunch bag, but I was pretty unhappy about losing my food. It bothered me for the rest of the day, despite repeated appeals to just “let it go.”  I am not really a let it go kind of guy.  Things like this bother me for a while.  That’s why I need to write about it now.  I don’t know if it is because I felt stupid for losing it, or if I just don’t like to waste things. I mean, I would have heard it fall…or seen it.  The people who sat around me would have felt it hit their legs and told me about it…..wouldn’t they?  I normally look back at my seat upon exit, but on this day, I didn’t.

I went out for lunch and had some mango chicken. It was quite delicious.  My girlfriend also shared some of her Rittersport bar with me.  I have to admit that it \was quite nice of her.

At the end of the day, I tried to ask at the bus terminal if they had a lost and found. Instead of it being at the terminal, where I could easily access it, they have their lost and found at the corporate office, which is not served by their bus.  What a shocker.  The people I asked were less than helpful.  Again, what a shocker.

I bought another lunch bag some time ago. I knew the one I had was on life support and I wanted to be ready.  It is sooner than I expected, but it will be pressed into service tomorrow.

    It was today unperfect moment, but let’s hope that someone ate the lunch and will continue to use the bag.

    Hopefully a homeless person enjoyed your delicious lunch.

    Aw no, I’m sorry! I’d be upset about it, too. At least you were already prepared with a new lunch bag. 🙂

      Thank you Hunida. I have said it before, but I will say it again, I appreciate your positive support. I hope you have people around you who will do the same for you.
