I guess I can’t keep all the balls in the air anymore. I was supposed to buy some personal items and take them to an American Citizen that was recently arrested and placed in the Women’s facility near David.
No big deal, I can do that. I bought all the items and called the Embassy to say I could make the trip. Since I have never been there and didn’t know how to get there, I decided to use the taxi that the Embassy uses for all of their work here.
I was supposed to meet him at El Rey. I only met him once and that was over a year ago and I didn’t remember what he looked like. Cabs pulled up and most didn’t stop. A couple did and when I asked if they were the name of the driver I needed, they said no.
However one said ¨yes¨. When he started off, he said ¨where to¨ in English. I said, you don’t work for the Embassy do you. He said no. I said, I was on Embassy business and waiting for a certain driver. We had not left the El Rey parking lot, so he made a circle and dropped me off at the front.
I got out, another couple got in and he left again. I went to call my driver again and guess what, no cell phone. It must have slipped out in his cab. I called all the cab companies, but was told that there are more independents now and no way to track it down.
I used the Lost Phone app to list it as missing. It was turned on once after I lost it. Being in a cab, it will never return. Today was a costly day. For $26 worth of personal items that I was to deliver, I lost a costly iPhone.
I am really bummed out. At 3:00PM it was last seen here.
Next I decided to go to the local CLARO office and notify them of it being missing. While parking in the ARROCHA parking garage, I got too close to one of their pillars and gouged my right rear bumper. OUCH!
I am ready for 2013. 2012 is starting to stink. The way things are going I may get locked up in the women’s prison tomorrow when I go to deliver the things I was going to deliver today..
You know what? I think it does get better than this.
