Just to keep everyone up to date w/ all the important events in my life, i should mention that i lost my bank card again. That's 4 times now i ran away w/ the cash before getting the card back. And this news is a great confirmation that no, it's not just the weeds that are making me a tad absent-minded.
Whew, close call!
On the off-chance that it happens again, i'll mention it, just for posterity.
PS. After i got the office clerk's assistance, the bank handed me my card which was waiting impatiently for me at the branch.
