Isn't it funny how once you learn something it becomes integrated into your life? Just a few days ago I became acqainted with the text message phrase "OMG." As luck would have I proceeded to lose $800 in cash that was contained in one of those little bank envelopes along with my driver's license and ATM card. Having just left the bank enroute to register SPRAY, then pay a friend for the work he did on her, I felt good that I had the money to pay off these little ditties..

Walking into the motor vehicle place where one registers their boat and trailer, my cell phone began ringing incessantly. Finally, I answered it. On the other end was the dockmaster at my yacht club ranting and raving because I tied the boat I race on to the end of our transient dock despite the sign indicating it was reserved for someone else.

Well, I had meant to leave the race boat there for only an hour or two the previous night while I drove my crew home. On the way, I "ran into a chum wiht a bottle of rum" and well you know the end of that little tale.

Back to the point, wanting to be a good yacht club member I quickly abandoned my boat registration trip, ran back to my car and sped to the club to move the race boat. After taking care of my 'good name' with the yachties by moving the race boat into an empty slip, I again sped back to the boat registration place. Guess what?

The envelope with the $800 cash, atm card and driver's license were gone. Gone, gone. Yes, I searched my car, literally detailing the inside, surveyed the parking lot of the boat registration place, went into every store at the strip mall, and back to the yacht club to search that parking lot and the race boat.. Nowhere is the envelope, not even a an empty one.During my frantic search I also realized the little slip of paper that has my account balance on it was also in the envelope.

So, now, not only do I cognitively know the meaning of OMG, I have practical experience as well.

OMG is right. So sorry to hear this. I know with most banks..when u get the transaction receipt.. there's a bunch of xxxxxxxx's instead of your whole acct. number. I'd be sick over say the least.
