Some of you may already know that I am not a fan of the holidays. I have always felt that it brings out a degree of ugliness in today's society. Unfortunately, I have been affected by the ugliness. On Tuesday, while I was taking a step class, my gym locker was broken into and my credit card, cash, and Social Security Card was stolen. Gyms are rampant with theft during this time of the year. It is absolutely insane. Even with cameras and security, thieves still find ways of breaking into lockers.
I suppose I can be thankful that I only had $8 cash in my wallet. I can also be thankful that he only charge $79 on my credit card (my bank has not fully approved the transaction since I reported the stolen card before his transactions went through; not sure how this works). I am scared that he has a hold of my SSN. I did some research and, if you don't now, there is very little that you can do unless something actually happens. Meaning: identity theft or fraud has to occur in order for anything to be done. Until then, no protection is available.
What I hate the most is that I never bring my wallet to the gym and the one time I do.... What I hate is that I never have my Social Security Card on me BUT I forgot to take it out of my wallet after I had to do some paperwork for my new job. What I hate is that I let my guard down in a place I should know not to. What I hate is that I was not thinking.
But what I really hate is that I had 13 more days left on my 30-day Unlimited Ride Metrocard. I hate it all. Later.
