    Son lost his wallet at a Pennsylvania shipper. License, debit card, company fuel card, SS card and $300 cash.
    He was hoping another trucker would find it and return, but no such luck.
    He might of left it on the shippers desk or dropped it somewhere on shippers site. Question: Are most shippers and receiver workers Hispanic? He wonders if one of them found it and kept it. Is humanity getting that bad, not to at least return it without the cash? Needless to say he was devastated when it happened.

    Truckers: Make your wallet a life supporting item!!

    That was my question, not my sons. Maybe I should have asked if most shippers/receivers hire illegals?

    What does that have to do with your OP?

    Maybe teach your son to be more careful/ responsible. Not to carry cash which isn’t really necessary in today’s electronic world. I personally only carry enough to tip the porters at truck stops.

    Tell him to lose the debit card because it’s a liability and a pure waste of money.

    Perhaps buy junior a wallet with a chain for Christmas.

    Yep. He retraced his steps from the truck to the office. Checked all around the trunk, in and out. Check garbage cans. Asked around. My question about Hispanics was because every Hispanic he asked just smiled and said no comprendai.

    Yes, I recommended he get a chain wallet. His answer was "I don't wear jeans!" And how do you get cash if no debit card?

    ....lost wallet , cant find it.
    Now you cancel the old debt card and credit card ( and get new ones) , go get a replacement license which should be the first thing , write off the 300 ( that is a bummer ) and then get a new wallet . ( put in front pocket so its easier to keep track of ).
    As far as the people at shippers and recivers , all types come and go and it ain't there jobs to take care of personal property - i've lost wallets , jackets , tools , etc etc. , and if no one has found it or turned it in , then thats it.
     
    Bud A. and Flat Earth Trucker Thank this.
