My Dad is a smart ass – #05

(En español más abajo)
 
CanadaI was taking Santi, Caro and Juan, along with two friends, to a Church Youth Group meeting (they went bowling and then to DQ for dinner) last Saturday, when Santi told me that he had lost his wallet.
 
- I can't find it anywhere...
- Well, you better do! What did you have in there, your banking card?
- Yes...
- You lost your banking card??!! How can you be so irresponsible!
 
And I went on and on about it, while Santi and the rest of the guys looked at me puzzled. Regaining my composure, I told him:
 
- You will continue to look for it tomorrow (Sunday). Then, if you still don't find it, I'm going to take you to the bank on Monday and have you ask for a duplicate.
 
And then, in a much lower voice, I added:
 
- And since we're there, I will order a duplicate of my own banking card, because I lost it and I can't find it anywhere...
 
Nobody heard me! Well, at least nobody laughed at me. Perfect crime...
 
NOTE: As I’m writing this post, Santi sends me a text message to tell me he had found his wallet. What a party pooper!

El sábado pasado estaba llevando a Santi, Caro y Juan, junto con dos amigos, a una reunión del Grupo Joven de mi iglesia (fueron a jugar al bowling y luego a Dairy Queen) cuando Santi me dijo que había perdido su billetera.
 
- No la puedo encontrar por ningún lado…
- Bueno, más te vale seguir buscando! Qué tenías ahí, tu tarjeta del banco?
- Sí...
- Perdiste tu tarjeta del banco??!! Cómo podés ser tan irresponsable!
 
Y seguí y seguí sermoneándolo, mientras Santi y los chicos me miraban sorprendidísimos. Una vez que recuperé mi compostura, le dije:
 
- Mañana (domingo) vas a seguir buscándola. Luego, si no la encontrás, te voy a llevar al banco el lunes para que vos pidas un duplicado de tu tarjeta de débito.
 
Y luego, con voz notablemente más baja, agregué:
 
- Y ya que estamos ahí, pido un duplicado de la mía también, porque la perdí y no la puedo encontrar por ningún lado…
 
Nadie me escuchó! Bueno, al menos nadie se rió de mí. Un crimen perfecto…
 
NOTA: Justo mientras escribo este post, Santi me envía un mensaje para decirme que encontró su billetera. Qué ganas de arruinar las cosas, eh!

  3. Nope, I haven't found it. But I'm not in a hurry of getting a new one either. I know the card is at home (probably under my bed or something), but I barely use it anyway, so... OK, I will get a duplicate eventually. But not today! :-)
