Stupid is as stupid does or Thank you IKEA Abu Dhabi…

We had been in Abu Dhabi today. After doing planned visits i went to the bank in Musaffah to deposit some money. Afterwards we drove to IKEA at Yas Island to have a look around. Reaching the check out area i found my wallet missing. Running back to the car brought that the wallet is not there as well. Checking with the IKEA helpdesk brought as well not news.. So we headed back to the bank, the only logical please for me  where i could have lost the wallet on entering the car. The Branch Manager of the First Gulf Bank where i used the ATM was very helpful and the video footage showed clearly that i had jumped in the car with the wallet on me.

So we drove back to IKEA, who tool my number before and said they would call me in case something comes up. Checking with the same help desk again brought no news, but when they checked with the security they have they got the info that something was found today. So we went to the security office on the underfloor of the building which luckily had my wallet. As per them i lost it close to the check out zone. Checking the wallet nothing was missing at all.

Thank you IKEA for making this initially horrible experience positive in the end. Well appreciated as i was mentally already at the police station and running behind lost documents which had been inside…
