lost

What do you do when you find your gold chain and three finger rings gone missing? It was inside the cupboard. Somebody flicked it. I have cleaned my room the hundredth time just hoping they might just appear from somewhere even when I know it was inside. I am vacating the place. I cannot stay 24/7 being worried about my belongings. I locked it and kept my keys in a place where I felt was safe. Am I supposed to hang it in my waist now? Mama, what am I going to tell you? My dowry is gone. boo hoo!
I have completed three years in the hostel. We are not supposed to stay beyond 3 yrs and I was happy that I am becoming an 'antique piece'. Warden too bended her rule as I was one of the few goody gals belonging to the 'very far away from home' species. Oflate people have been losing money. eh! lingeries too. yuks!!!!!! Who could be the culprit? All of them look like angels. My mistake! people just enter and exit my room at will even for a goddamn broom without respecting my privacy. Now, I am paying the price. All of you are supposed to be working womens. Bitch! what are you going to teach your kids someday? Steal baby steal? And how am I going to manage a home when I cannot even take care of my own belongings? Why am I talking like mom now?

When you are staying in a hostel, you cannot trust anyone. Even a frined is a second self. Be careful! I have heard of many incidents similar to this. Take this as a lesson. Always lock your valuables in a cupboard or in a suitcase. You need not wear the key on your neck. Instead, make replace the lipstick with your keys in your hand bag.

Another advice (unsolicited) to all gals:

1. Please do not walk alone in dark and isolated places.

2. Do not wear valuable jewelry.

3. Do not wear your cell phone aroung your neck.
