Definately a thief. I received a call from the receptionist at church today. The post office called her looking for me. Someone had dumped my purse in a post office collection bin and they wanted to return it to me. (Yeah!) The nice lady at the post office told me this happens frequently. Nothing missing except the $250 Prescription sunglasses and a few postage stamps. I am so upset that the thief was in the room with the toddlers. Thank God for His protection.
This thief was obviously an opportunist. They could not possibly forsee the door being opened by a three year old with Mom in the bathroom. However, this person fits into one of two catagories: 1) just looking for cash - not technical enough for credit card fraud - but now wearing cool shades, or 2) Identity thief who, although disappointed by the lack of cash, intends to lull me into a false sense of security by returning all credit cards and drivers license - while applying for numerous accounts in my name - while wearing cool shades.
We'll see...

Perhaps I should take a poll on this:

I had a two week old (kind of expensive) lipstick in that purse. It still looks great. Should I toss it?
