Dr. Grumpy: "What's up?"
Marie: "I lost my school ID today."
Dr. Grumpy: "Where did you lose it?"
Marie: "While we were walking home."
Dr. Grumpy: "Any idea where? It's a 2 mile walk."
Craig: "Along the road, somewhere between here and school."
Dr. Grumpy: (sighs) "Thanks, Craig."
(loads up car, drives SLOWLY to school and back, with kids peering out the windows and other drivers honking and giving me the bird for blocking traffic, while I randomly slam on the brakes any time a kid sees a leaf, or crushed paper cup, or piece of dog shit that vaguely resembles a school ID and screams "THERE IT IS!!!")
I finally gave up and drove back home.
Dr. Grumpy: "Marie, it doesn't appear to be out there anywhere."
Marie: "It has to be! It was while we were walking home today that I noticed it was missing!"
Dr. Grumpy: "When was the last time you remember seeing it?"
Marie: "Last Wednesday, during the field trip to City Park."
