Okay, so here's the story...DH and I went out last Sunday to do some shopping up in a town about 45 minutes away from our house. Something we never do. And we only went that far because the place that had the headboard I wanted was out that way and they have a nice mall out there too.
So anyway, we do our shopping and then decide to get a bite to eat at this restaurant called Red Robin. Never been there before, very good cheeseburger if I do say so myself. So we finish eating and we both use the restroom before we leave. I went first, came back to the table to pay and wait for DH, well, I had taken off my wedding rings and my right hand ring because my hands were still damp from washing them.
So I put them on the table (I remember doing this too
) then the waitress comes to get the payment, I give her my card and she leaves. This is the crappy part, I don't exactly remember putting them back on.
I know, I know, you're asking what was I thinking taking them off!! I always do that when my hands are wet, they dry quicker. So we get home that night and my DH starts taking the entertainment center apart (we had bought a new one) and I ALWAYS put my rings there before I go to bed. That's their spot.
So I go about my business Monday and didn't even think about them being gone. Then comes Tuesday. I'm like, hey, where's my rings??? I knew DH wouldn't just toss them somewhere so I call him at work. He has no idea.
I have torn this house apart trying to find those rings and they are just gone. Then this morning I remembered taking them off at the restaurant on Sunday. So I called and the manager said that no one had turned any rings in so I'm out of luck there. I've checked every pocket of clothing I've worn since Sunday and they aren't there either.
I'm just sick about it. But there is one positive thing about all of this...................they're not real diamonds.
BUT I'm still sick about it. I am so greatful they are fake and that it wasn't my real wedding set that I carelessly took off. I could just kick myself for doing that. I really loved those rings and even though they were only valued at about $100.00 for both, I really liked them and I don't have that kind of money to shell out for new ones for quite a while.
The moral of my story is this: Don't take off your rings in a restaurant and expect someone to be honest and turn them in.
Of course they're in for a big surprise if they try to sell them!!!!
