    GIFS #14 & 15 are the best! bahaha! I agree man, losing your wallet sucks but when you do find it, its like hitting the lottery (or how we imagine it to feel). Nice GIF choices btw. You should have added one where the pants you thought had your wallet are at the dry cleaners – hahaha! (not #winning)
