Last weekend I was out and about driving around the country knocking on doors for a gentleman running for Congress.

About 90% of the time I left my phone plugged into the GPS in the car, but a few times I did take it with me and put it in my back pocket.  I had an app that allowed me to map out the homes I wanted to go to.

End of the day, I stopped at the store and got some groceries, and when I opened up my wallet/phone……………

ALL OF MY IDS WERE MISSING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My DL.

My FOID card.

My conceal carry license.


It’s not possible for all three IDs to fall out accidentally.

I am not the kind of person to panic, but I know what a nightmare it would be if I had to replace all of my IDs.

Also, for the time it took to replace my FOID and CCL, I wouldn’t be able to handle my own firearms !!


I took a quick trot through the grocery store to see where I might have lost the items, but did not find them.  It began to rain and it wouldn’t be practical to try to retrace my day of door knocking so I went home.

I’m in a void because if I report the items missing and apply to get replacements and someone turns them in, I’m still hosed because of the time it would take.   How much time should I wait????

Well, it was my lucky day.  (for once)

The previous night, I was laying down in bed watching a movie on Hulu, and I knocked my phone off of the nightstand.  I picked the phone up and didn’t think about it again.  But that is where and when the IDs fell out !  I am absolutely amazed that I opened and closed my phone all morning and never saw that the IDs were not there.
