Hey, everybody. I'm on my way back to the States from Mexico. Classes start Wednesday. I've had a great time, but I really screwed up today during my overnight hotel stopover in Mexico City to catch my flight to Dallas and on home in the States. I got distracted in a cab as I arrived at my Mexico City hotel and I left my briefcase with my laptop, my cell phone, my house and car keys, my tablet--everything on the cab's back seat.
After the shock of it wore off, I got busy freezing my credit card and making sure any info anybody got off of it out there didn't get used to make things worse. Then, since I didn't now have a laptop, I couldn't check in and confirm tomorrow's flight to Dallas online, I took a cab to the Mexico City airport and confirmed my flight in person at the airline counter there.
Feeling I'd done my best not to overreact and make things worse, and that I'd taken care of what was next, I came back to my hotel. Guess what? That cabbie had CALLED. Mexico City is a city of 22 million people, and I lost my laptop in one in a million, at least--an HONEST CABBIE'S CAB!!!!! Can you believe it?
I called him back, and he was home after a day's work, but he got back in his cab and drove my laptop with everything in it (cell phone, car and house keys, etc.) still in it intact. I paid him a reward, but money alone could never repay this guy. I sang his praises, and promised myself I would sing his praises here, too.
It's really amazing to me, a real miracle--no kidding.

I joined this board sons ago but rarely post. I have bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder as well as anxiety. I usually stay on the bipolar board as it is more active but of late has been rather dead. So I came back here to be supportive and maybe get support. I just finished a two and a half week nurse aide training program and battled very high anxiety but am proud to say I...
