Do you use a wallet?
Yes, I do but it’s not for paper money (a country’s official currency). It’s for my different cards like credit cards, debit cards, rewards cards, and the like (and other similar things). I’ve been using this card case wallet since last year. You may not know, that we’ve become a cashless society (an economic concept where financial transactions are done electronically rather than using banknotes) here, so this kind of wallet is just what most people are currently using.
Of course, I have a breast wallet (also called secretary wallet; a wallet in which the paper money is not folded) which I use when I have a business trip. I like using it because both of my cheques and banknotes aren’t folded. Also, I have a bi-fold wallet (a wallet that can be folded in half and has several card slots) which I always use when I go to the supermarket.
Have you ever lost your wallet?
Yes, unfortunately. I have lots of experiences where my wallet got lost on a train, in a taxi, and worse when someone pickpocketed (to steal from the pocket of someone ) me while sightseeing abroad. Well, sadly I experienced that twice when I had my holidays in different countries. I was careless then but I’ve learned a lesson.
Not at all. I’m proud to say that I’m very careful with my wallet. Most of the time, I keep it safe. I can’t imagine (be unable to imagine or think) losing my wallet, I think I might not be able to go to sleep if that happens. I always make sure to keep it in a very safe place.
Have you ever sent a wallet to someone as a gift?
I can’t remember gifting a wallet to someone, maybe I had given a wallet as a gift in the past, I just can’t recall. Well, anyway, I think that’s a great present to give especially to men as it somehow encourages them to save money (laughing). I might buy one and give it to my brother as he’s going to celebrate his birthday very soon.
Yes, I remember I gave my mom a Saint Laurent Zip Wallet on her 60th birthday. It was actually expensive but I didn’t mind (not to care) the hefty price tag (a high price) for that wallet as I just wanted to give something very special to her and she did like it.
Do most of your friends use a wallet?
Definitely, but as I said earlier, we’re in a cashless society so we don’t use the traditional wallets. Most of my friends’ wallets are the same as mine. We have a card case wallet and a few of (some) my friends are using a phone case wallet, where its main purpose is for phone protection, however, there’s a compartment (a separate section) where they can store their cards as well.
I believe so. I think all of us use a wallet – may it be a phone case wallet, bi-fold wallet, card case wallet, or something like that (something similar to). We need to have a wallet where we can keep our cards or our money. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have one.
