I feel so embarrassed to talk about this here. but since seldom of you really understand English, I'll just say it. This evening I've done something very stupid. and to talk about the story, we'll have to turn back time to this afternoon.

This afternoon, I was walking to Santa Lucia, the most famous romantic scene in Santiago. and when I was still on the way to there, one guy and two girls stopped me, and started to talk to me. I don't really know what they're talking about though. it was something about poetry and education problems in Chile. after we talked for 5 or 10 minutes, they finally told me what they want. they want me to donate some money to support their actions to approve Chile's educational problems. The guy even show me his student ID of University of Chile to persue me. 

I don't really want to donate anything but they keep bugging me. and they say.. one dollar will be fine too. and so I think, well.. if one dollar can buy you off, that's quite ok though. so I said, ok one dollar. and I started to search in my bag. I have two wallets with me, one is with the cash (chilean pesos) and another is with the US dollars and credit cards. but I can't find the one with the dollars.... "HOW COME?" I think. and they are still around waiting like lions around a poor sheep, so I take out the cash wallet and gave them 1000 peso (almost 2 dollars) to pay them off.

But since then, I can't get this out off my head. "did I really bring two wallets out? or the wallet was stolen when they're talking to me?" I wasn't really sure if I keep my eyes on my backpacks when they were talking to me. and I wasn't sure if one of then had walked away from my sight and put her hand in my backpack either. 

I can't stop thinking about it, even there's a possiblity that I didn't even bring it out at all. so after dinner, I went back to the hostel, and I opened my locker and get everything inside out, BUT I DIDN'T SAW THAT WALLET!! OMG!!!! IT WAS STOLEN!!!! WHY DIDN'T THEY TOOK THE ONE WITH CASH?!!! so I went to the counter and told them my wallet was stolen and I need a computer to skype out to cancel the cards. the host right away got me a computer to use. and I was so so nervous that I even think about cancelling the rest of the trip.

Finally, I cancelled all the credit cards. and I can't stop being nervous, so I went up the find through all my package again. and magically, it appeared!! not in the locker, not in the backpack, but under my blanket......................................................................................... 

as I said, I was so embarrassed. I even have the people in the hostel and on SKYPE worry about me, just becuse I am so careless and so nervous, and I made a mistake like this. and now I have to call to the banks again to re-open the cards. 

and when I do so, I realized that how "not-user-friendly" CITIBANK is. it doesn't have a cancellation protection. which means, once you cancelled, you cancelled. you can't re-opened it by phone, it'll just send a new one to you and charge you 1,000 NTD. and what's even worse, CITIBANK card wasn't placed in that wallet at all!!! IT DIDN'T EVEN LOST AT ALL!!!!!!!

    I lost my credit card while I was getting my flight ticket <br />
    at the airport last May, and it was not until one month later <br />
    did I realize I'd lost it! Fortunately, some guy called Peter (or <br />
    John?) picked it up and my credit union cancelled it right away.<br />
    Better yet, it eventually cost me nothing since my credit union<br />
    was renewing their credit card last summer!<br />
    <br />
    Let's call such happenings mixed blessings. <br />
    As for CITIBANK, it really sucks.<br />
    How can they expect me to apply for their credit card <br />
    when they keep misspelling my name?
  • 馬路
  • 至少美金還真的在,只是你要怎麼拿到新的credit card勒?<br />
  • airbus1

  • 吼!看的過程當中好像在玩雲霄飛車...<br />
    又刺激又可怕!<br />
    <br />
    我覺得「懷疑被一男二女假大學生假募捐真偷錢」<br />
    的那一段過程最痛苦了...<br />
    因為如果真的如此<br />
    他們偷了錢包還虎視眈眈等你拿錢出來~<br />
    不就太過份了嗎?<br />
    還好還好~~~只是自己虛驚一場<br />
    這樣也好...<br />
    .<br />
    .<br />
    .<br />
    你接下來應該會更謹慎~~哈哈!<br />
    <br />
    PS要一直秉持「據實以告」的精神<br />
    把一路上的糗事都這樣子公諸於世喔!乖~~~<br />

  • pinky@london
  • 好緊張的一篇文章<br />
    請你真的小心一點拉~~~~~<br />
    (雖然我最近也無腦的掉了我的提款卡 不過幸好他只有提款功能且我立刻取消並且新卡已到<br />
    所以就沒事了 虛驚一場 跟你一樣)<br />
    小心一點拉<br />
    <br />
    還有<br />
    不要停下來跟陌生人講話<br />
    尤其是那種兩男兩女三男兩女之類的組合<br />
    很危險<br />
    連我同學都說中南美洲流行結夥搶劫<br />
    中南美洲的教育問題不是我們能解決的 答應我 好嗎?<br />
    台灣的教育問題比較嚴重~:P<br />

    That's so typical of "Cheer"!!<br />
    <br />
    By the way, my love, I have to take the God damn test again next month, I screwed it up <br />
    today. So I guess that I won't be able to harass you on the other side of the earth for <br />
    at least 31 days!!<br />
    <br />
    Take care, relax, and have FUN!<br />

  • 周胖子
  • 我想這也是家族遺傳吧~哈哈~<br />
    想到我之前以為錢包不見了,還去警察局備案咧~<br />
    結果一星期後也是在床邊的小縫隙找到<br />
    當場也只能大笑<br />
    <br />
    後來去領錢領不出來還一直生氣,打電話去銀行罵<br />
    小姐才跟我說:妳的卡片已經掛失了,所以不能領呀!<br />
    我還很堅持我沒有掛失,並且懷疑是哪個傢伙動了什麼手腳<br />

  • 在印度旅行時<br />
    我也是常常覺得周遭人要對你不利<br />
    非常神經質<br />
    有時還真的讓自己很糗,因為想太多了<br />

  • deers
  • That was an amazing story...and I cant agree with you more<br />
    when you say that banks are \\\"not-user-friendly\\\"<br />
    but the good news is, you still got your wallet!<br />
    <br />
    By the way...you really took nice pictures!<br />
    so buying a new camera is worth it!<br />
    Enjoy the trip!<br />
