Saved by the hat!

Last week, I rather foolishly left my wallet in the company truck when I came off site. Not merely did it contain all my money and cards, but it also had my TTC pass, so without it I couldn’t get home. It didn’t contain my GO train pass, which meant I could get an inconvenient distance from the office truck before realising I could get no further.

Stranded on the platform at Union Station, I suddenly remembered the advice in my Tilley hat‘s manual about putting “a $10 bill into the plastic bag in the pocket of the crown“. Hurrah!

Sometimes it does pay to read the manual …
