There's No Excuse for Bad Behavior!

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Ok. I'm venting, and it doesn't have anything to do with healthy living. Well, inferred, only...
My daughter is a member of Patriot Guard Riders. If you haven't heard of them, they are a group of motorcycle riders, many of them Vietnam Veterans, who escort, stand flag lines, and when necessary, shield family members of fallen servicemen and women from the rantings and harassment of very unChristian people who think it appropriate to intrude on the grief of a family who has lost a member defending our freedom. She rode a mission today, honoring a young soldier who was killed in Afghanistan; standing flag and riding escort to the cemetary. It was not a pleasant day to be out. It was a very wet, rainy, gray (and did I say wet and rainy?) day. When I picked her up afterward, she was soaked and cold. We were at WalMart, so she decided to go buy a new pair of jeans and a pair of long socks - both of which she needed anyway. After purchasing them, she took them to the bathroom to change. In getting the shuffle of wet clothes off and packed in the bags and the dry clothes on, she took her phone out of the (wet) clothes. In the jumble, she managed to not pick it up. It was less than 2 minutes after she left the restroom that she realized she didn't have her phone. Went back, it wasn't there. Tried to call it - it was turned off. (it had been on.) The phone belongs to her fiance - who is serving in Iraq. Unlike the phones our family has, it has internet and text. That is a big way he contacts her. Plus photos of him - and some photos he had of his military buddies. It just makes me mad that people have no respect for the property of others.
Before anyone asks, yes, the sim card has been disabled and the phone had insurance, such as it is...

    Hope you had your ICE # (in case of emergency) in the phone as I also found a phone not too long ago at Sears. It was disabled but there was an ICE # in it so I called it from my phone and got in touch with the mother of the owner. Phone was returned and all was well. Hope this one is returned to you too.

Hugs, Sunny

    I feel so bad for your daughter. It is sad that the honest people seem to be few and far between. I hope she can get the connection to her fiance up and running soon. Bless her heart for her mission today. Thank her for me.
