What is the deal with kids losing clothes? Our son got back from a sleep away summer camp a few weeks ago. During the process of doing laundry, we discovered that he returned without his jacket. This is the second time he has come back from camp without his jacket.
I was glad to hear my wife ask him what he was planning to do about it. She listed his two choices,
- Email the camp organizer and ask if his jacket is in lost and found. If it is, he will have to arrange for picking up his jacket or for having it sent to us. (The camp headquarters is 17 miles away from our house, although it is only 5.5 miles from our workplace.)
- Buy a new jacket.
We had hoped it would be in the camp’s lost and found, but apparently not. It appears that later this year, when it is time to buy a new jacket, he will learn that clothes and especially jackets are not necessarily cheap.
