Boy do I feel dumb . . .

Earlier this evening I went down to Fry’s Electronics (awesome, but really geeky mega-electronics store) in Fishers to spend a gift card my parents got me for my birthday. I ended up buying a pretty decent set of network cabling tools, which I’d been wanting, and also a few miscellaneous things we needed for the school technology project.

Well, I went ahead and had the cashier process the school items and my personal items separately, and paid with my debit card. I completely forgot about the gift card, which was my whole reason for going in the first place!

I’m hoping if I take the gift card back with my receipt they’ll refund me the amount on the card. If not, I guess it would certainly make a good excuse to go back there and do some more shopping. 🙂

It took me a while to realize what had happened—in fact, I was all the way back to Anderson before it occurred to me. When I told Elisabeth, she said that she’s just thankful to longer be the only one with “blond moments.”

I’m sure none of my friends has ever done anything that dumb, right?

  1. Actually, I did that at Menard’s the other day. A gift card that I’ve been carrying in my wallet for over a year, waiting for that one item I might need from Menard’s…

    Another one from Wal-Mart that I keep forgetting to spend every time I’m there.
