At one time we drove thru Kokomo weekly and often planned meal times for the many restaurants on the main highway. Those days are gone, but again we found ourselves in the area at dinner time. Many places have closed with the highway bi-pass but the Red Lobster was still there, although a bit empty. Nice server, usual good food, reasonable bill which I paid, with my usual credit card, and here's the problem. My fault, I forgot the card in the bill folder thingy. 250 miles later when I went for it to buy gas I realized what I had done and called both the restaurant, and the card people. The manager (Tony or Anthony) said they could only release the card to me in person, with a photo ID, which is smart and right. Told him to shred it and forget it. The card people said this happens all the time and fedex'd me a new card, same number to save having to change the many things I have on auto-pay. End of story.. no! Today the good people at BankAmerica called to say they have a number of "strange" transactions on my account totaling over $600. and would I go over the last few times I used the card, which we did. Now I have a new number and have to watch things for a few days to see if any small things got past the block. Again, the nice card people said this happens all the time and not to "go off" on the restaurant, server or manager as it could have been anyone in the entire place. Lesson learned. I'm getting older and have done this a few times in the past but nearby so we can just pick up the card. The majority of restaurant people are hard working and honest, so to keep the honest people honest, it's up to me to keep the temptation out of their hands.
