    Yep...mine cannot be found but no one is using it so I assume I might still find it somewhere.

    Bottom of your purse, or in a different pocket of your wallet? Pants pocket? Sometimes I put mine in my jeans temporarily when my hands are full and forget.

    Call the last place you used it. It happened to me as I did not take the card when I left and they placed it in the till for safe keeping. Went in and showed them ID and picked it up.

    That's true, I have handed the checker a card that the person in front of me left in the card reader more than once.

    I have checked all those places!

    The last place I handed it to someone for a transaction was at the vet, on Tuesday last week. I bought flea drops they put in a baggie. I think I carried the card and my car keys in. I don't know if I dropped the flea meds in my purse when I came back to the car or just laid them on the seat. I called the vet and they haven't seen it.

    I looked in the car. "The estranged one" says he will have a look tomorrow.

    Other than that, I went to the corner stores. I called both of them and they haven't seen it.

    I emptied my purse and went through everything in it.

    I checked all my pockets and the dirty clothes bin.

    Things were crazy last week. It was full of lots of unusual activities. I went to the doctor (before the vet). I treated the animals for fleas. I flea bombed the house. I moved furniture and re-arranged my room...and had those 4 wonderful granddaughters during the days.

    Maybe once more under the seats in the car tomorrow will turn it up.

    Other than that, I must have lost it between a cash register and the car, thinking it was in my pocket instead of my wallet, which I often do when rushing.

    I would probably just cancel it and order a new one at this point. I left mine in the atm one time but the bank will call you if that happens

    I looked at the transactions again.

    The last place it was used was at the vets office. It has to be in the car or the house...

    That's why there has been no use by anyone else. It's here somewhere.


    If I cancel it, I have to get the cash off it because it locks it and "the estranged one's" down until the new ones arrive. That can take 10-days, unless I pay $20 for expedited delivery.

    AND I have to get the estranged one to pull up the info for the direct deposit of our disability check to see if it will move with the new card #'s or if we have to go through some shit with Soc. Sec. that takes them 6 weeks to process.

    Damn it.

    Ok, since you've looked everywhere that makes the slightest bit of sense, trying all of the logical/reasonable solutions...here's a thought.

    Get a pendulum (one can be made easily with a key, which I'm sure you know) and go from room to room and in the car, telling it to react when you are in the right area - room or car. You have nothing to lose. :)

    I do have a quartz pendulum, Lynn. That's not a bad idea. I'll wait until light tomorrow, after he has checked the car again.

    Car door pocket? Slipped from your bag and caught under the removable car mat in the footwell? Between the seat and the backrest? Stuck behind the seatbelt housing?

    Ok-where WOULDN'T you look for it? Coz THAT'S where it is,Aeri.

    That's awesome, Rolling.

    Mine takes two days to make and then 7-10 days to get here. It's a Walmart Visa Debit card.

    We can't bank at other banks. We've burned them walking out on service charges.

    Car seats are notorious for making things disappear. If the clerk put the card in the bag with the flea treatment could you have thrown it out with the bag?

    Nope. The flea treatment was put in a sandwich baggie.
