Seriously? Worst Day...

*****UPDATE*****  My phone was found in Wal-Mart Parking lot!!!!  *****UPDATE*****
Praise GOD!!!

This morning I got up early to take Brennan to the orthodontist.  I left the other kids with Dad and just took Brennan and Anneliese.

After the appointment I headed out to Wal-Mart to get a few odds and ends.  For some reason my debit card was denied.  Not sure why since we have both recently been paid.  Embarrassed and desperate for a bathroom break I left my cart and wandered over to the restroom.

I left Brennan right outside the door and took Anneliese with me, my purse and my jacket.  I text Jared about the groceries and Anneliese kept opening the stall for me while I was inside.  Awesome...

After grabbing up my stuff, Sis and I went to the sink to wash hands.  I sat my phone on the counter, washed my hands and Anneliese darted out the door (of course).   I chased after her, walked about 20 feet and remembered my phone on the counter.

We ran back in to find no phone.  There were 3 or 4 different people in there that I gave the 3rd degree.  I then went to the Customer service desk, to each checker (including the one that told me I needed to find another way to pay) to no avail.

I waited 20-30 minutes all while the CSM's radioed everyone in the store.  It was becoming obvious that whomever spotted my phone had no intention of returning it.

Devastated, I wandered out to the car and returned home.

We called ATT and they are "really sorry" and generously offered to let me purchase a new iPhone 4 at retail price of $600.  I've only had mine for about 6 weeks.  I sold my iPhone 3GS to pay for the upgrade so it didn't cost us anything at the time.  I now have a 2 year contract with ATT and no phone to utilize it.  We deactivated my phone but ATT informed me all the thief  has to do is replace the sim card and they have an awesome new phone for free.


I guess I should call the bank to see what's up with the checking account...

Oh wait.
